What we love
- Hidden Tropical Hillside Villa
- Breathtaking Views across Koh Samui
Built on multiple levels into a dramatic forested hillside, Baan Silavaree boasts contemporary Asian style and luxury in abundance. Upper and lower level landscaped entrances invite visitors into the compound through antique Indonesian Batak doors, past cascading waterfalls.
Once inside, the villa's main two-storey building looks out over the infinity pool to the ocean beyond, and houses an open-plan living and dining area on the upper floor, as well as two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
The interiors feature hand-made lighting fixtures that highlight the striking thatched ceilings, while antique Anglo-Burmese tables, Tibetan furniture, Balinese burled teak wood coffee tables, contemporary works of art, Sisal rugs, and custom made sofas built for comfort all create a unique, elegant and exotic sense of location.
Out on the redwood balconies, rattan chairs and tables offer guests supreme comfort for cocktail hour while they enjoy the stunning sunset views. A Balinese teak table seats ten for dinner served by an impressive kitchen that features a Portuguese slate centre island, slate countertops and custom built cherry wood cabinets with all the necessary utensils to prepare everything from an intimate meal to a dinner party for 50 guests (a private chef is available at extra cost).
Two stand alone one-bedroom ensuite villas sit either side of the main building and boast contemporary four poster beds with custom-built teak wood cabinets in their mezzanine bedrooms. The private living rooms feature 3.5 metre sliding doors that ensure guests wake to breathtaking seascapes every morning. Furnishings include sink-into sofas, coffee tables, armchairs and cabinets with hidden doors for the flat screen TVs and DVD players. A well stocked mini fridge, hot water heater, coffee and tea making facilities are also included for guests' convenience.
Each of the villa's bathrooms is fitted with teak surround sunken baths for two, indoor and outdoor showers, imported limestone mosaic tiles, imported slate or limestone floors, teak counters, and also boasts spectacular ocean views.
A separate area downstairs on the pool level is dedicated to outdoor cooking, with a covered barbecue area, separate kitchen, bar and dining space. An outdoor shower and changing room is accessible for those using the pool, while behind the main house, between the bedroom villas, a lush back garden features a magnificent waterfall and provides the perfect spot for afternoon tea, picnics, or meditation.

Staying at Baan Silavaree
