From the moment we set our bags down at Baan Fan Noi, we felt relaxed and ready to go with the flow – almost letting the villa’s convivial layout dictate what we should do next. From enjoying a swim in the16m pool to feeling tension lift in the jacuzzi and then falling asleep over a book on the comfy daybeds in the courtyard between the kitchen and living room, we were able to completely switch off. Nothing is too much trouble for the villa manager, Khun Muan, who quickly popped into town on his scooter when we needed something, even before we could ask the favour.

The villa’s elevated position meant we enjoyed views of not only the bay between Chaweng and Choeng Mon, but also the tiny island of Koh Matlang in the distance and the airport to the other side. Rather than being a disturbance, we found it fascinating watching the airplanes taking off and landing, with only minor noise disturbance as the villa is well to the side of the flight path.
The bedrooms are exceptionally comfortable, with down bedding, silent air-conditioning and subdued lighting. Leaving the blinds open at night meant we could see the lights twinkling along the coast below and could even enjoy a firework show being staged at Chaweng Beach. It also meant waking early to a beautiful sunrise. If you’d prefer to sleep in, you can of course draw the blinds – the aroma of coffee brewing will wake you up in time for breakfast, so no need to set your alarm. The fresh air made us hungry, so we enjoyed our continental breakfast, including a platter of tropical fruit, as a perfect way to start the day. From the breakfast table, we watched yachts and fishing boats coming and going and the island starting its day, knowing we had nothing much planned, other than another relaxing day at the elegant Baan Fan Noi.

Highlights

We enjoyed Baan Fan Noi’s open and airy ambiance – this is a villa where indoor and outdoor living really do blend beautifully. The interior designer’s use of neutral tones and natural elements creates a calming and relaxed effect.

Surprises

Many stairs linking the villa’s three levels means it’s not ideal for young children, the elderly or mobility impaired. There’s slight noise from the airport, but the sound of the water features and birdlife in the trees detracts from this minor disturbance.
