Located on Koh Samui’s peaceful west coast, the spacious 5-bedroom Baan Ora Chon sits on the white sands of Lipa Noi, one of the island’s few year-round swimming beaches. Baan Ora Chon seamlessly merges Lipa Noi’s natural beauty with its exquisite tropical and traditional architecture. The villa has been designed to incorporate the palm trees that were there long before Baan Ora Chon was, and yet, the villa is strikingly modern. Think a grand stone-wall entrance, high vaulted ceilings, intricate layouts which link different levels and spaces, a plethora of design elements that ensure you notice something new from Baan Ora Chon’s every angle, and the use of natural materials to enhance the contemporary space.
It is not just the architectural detailing that makes the villa so special – the cathedral windows frame stunning views of Lipa Noi and the famous Five Islands. Then there are the fabulous sunsets.
A villa dedicated to Wellness, Baan Ora Chon is fully wheelchair accessible and comes with a fabulous 18-metre beachfront pool in which you can do some morning laps. By the pool is a fully equipped beachfront sala, from which you can enjoy all-day dining, sunset cocktails, a massage, or your yoga practice. There is a world-class gym on-site, and everything from private Muay Thai lessons to spa treatments can be organised by the Villa Manager and concierge team. Baan Ora Chon is not just dedicated to your Wellness, but to the planet’s as the villa is entirely plastic free.
Year-round yacht anchorage is ideal for those whose perfect holiday involves sailing or who want to charter a boat directly to the Ang Thong Marine Park. Within the villa, wherever you look, there is the sense of the outdoor seamlessly merging with the indoors.
Baan Ora Chon’s grand entrance does not open onto indoor space, but rather a garden framed by tall stone pillars. It is only by crossing the garden that you come across the main living pavilion. Although you may become distracted by the elevated living and dining area and its high vaulted ceiling, central water feature and adjacent chef’s kitchen featuring impeccable black granite surfaces and breakfast bar, you’ll never forget the surrounding nature as glass doors and windows stretch across the space giving you those breathtaking views of the ocean beyond.
Above this pavilion, you’ll find one of the most incredible bedrooms, with its private dressing area, en-suite bathroom and outdoor terrazzo tub. This bedroom is surrounded by vibrant greens and ocean blues as it looks out onto garden in one direction and sea in another. One other bedroom sits beneath the elevated dining and living area, but this is not to say that it lacks in beauty. This bedroom with its en-suite shower room has a private covered terrace which looks across garden, pool and sea. One floor up, you’ll find a bunk room, perfect for children who want to spend their time together. Beyond the living pavilion,you’ll find two more bedrooms to relish. Within its pavilion, these two bedrooms are separated by an inner garden so you will continue to lose yourself in nature. These two bedrooms each come with dressing area, en-suite bathroom and outdoor terrazzo bathtub from which you can watch the heavens above.
Part of the Chai Talay Estate, which consists of three exclusive beachfront villas, Baan Ora Chon is an architectural gem amid lush greenery and crystal-clear waters. It can be rented with the other two villas of the Chai Talay Estate, making it the perfect retreat whether you’re looking for a small family affair or weddings, corporate getaways, wellness retreats and events.
