Our stay at Baan Asan really felt like a retreat away from the hustle of every-day life. The pace shifted down a gear as the whole family adjusted to the natural tropical environment and our luxurious and very private surroundings. The kids adored the bunk-beds and having their own bathrooms as well as waking up early in the mornings and jumping into the pool. The efficient manageress ensured that we were well taken care of with her constant yet respectful attention and was very approachable for information or assistance. The master suite was a retreat within a retreat for us grown-ups, and having a designated office/library was helpful when we needed to check in with the outside world. Dining on the beach was unforgettable as were the sunset cocktails in the sala surrounded by comfy cushions. We found that after a few hours out exploring the island we were thrilled to return to the comfort of the villa. For us, Baan Asan struck the perfect balance between spacious and luxurious communal areas, intimate and private bedrooms and practical, well designed facilities, all located on a quiet beach renowned for its magnificent views.

Highlights

The combination of large communal living spaces and intimate sleeping pavilions makes Baan Asan an ideal place for large groups and families. Taking in the tropical sunset from the infinity pool is a sublime pleasure to be shared.

Surprises

Baan Asan is located on a very quiet beach, but the sea is too shallow for swimming from June to October. The sand in front of the villa is well-kept but due to the undeveloped nature of the bay the rest of the beach isn't quite so pristine, although this is made up for by the peaceful secluded atmosphere and exquisite sunsets overlooking the islands of the marine national park. The villa is, in general, very family-friendly, but watch out for the ‘floating’ staircase leading up from the living area.
