a sophisticated residence with unparalleled levels of style, comfort and absolute luxury
Baan Napa is a villa of immense proportions; natural elements used throughout include tall, cathedral-like teak ceilings, large glass folding doors and materials such as traditional tropical hardwood doors and marble floors to extenuate the design.
Arriving at the front of the villa, the traditional Thai gate leads to a wooden bridge, which leads to the elegant carved front doors. When the doors open, the views through the house, and out to the ocean are breathtaking.
The open plan sitting room and dining room both contain furniture that has been made to our specifications the dining area is dominated by a large teak table and eight solid teak chairs. The sitting room has solid teak coffee tables and chairs in a mixture of Anglo/Thai styles, together with cream, comfy sofas. The folding doors from both the dining area and sitting room, lead onto a very large balcony, creating a genuine indoor/outdoor living experience. The room is wired with speakers to an i-Pod music unit, or you can bring your own i-Pod to plug in. It also has a wireless remote control to give you full control of your i-Pod from all over the villa.
To the left of the dining room, is a sleek, white, modern kitchen, with black granite worktops, which includes a breakfast bar and bar stools and American Fridge/Freezer with filtered cold-water facility.
Stepping out onto the covered balcony, you will find the Master Bedroom Suite next door, with views overlooking the pool, sea and tropical forest coastline. It has a vaulted teak ceiling, large ceiling fan, remote control air-conditioning, and black marble floor and comes complete with walk-in dressing room and en-suite wet room with a huge walk-in shower. The handmade bedroom furniture comprises a teak Thai King-size four-poster bed, teak chest of draws, comfy chairs and a 32" flat-screen LCD television and DVD player.
To the left of the main pavilion is the guest pavilion, housing two large guest suites, both with TV / DVD, air-conditioning, en-suite wet rooms and stunning sea views.
Taking the steps down from the main pavilions balcony, past the Master Bedroom Suite, you find the Television Room/Fourth Bedroom Suite. This has cream marble floors and remote control air-conditioning. It comprises three sofas, together with a traditional Thai coffee table and a 42" LCD flat-screen television with DVD/CD player and a full home cinema surround-sound system. Blackout curtains have been installed to ensure the correct lighting levels for the room. These frame a huge panoramic window, overlooking the pool and sea. The sofas have been designed to be used as a king-size double bed if required.
Steps from the television room lead down to the main terrace and swimming pool, which is surrounded by large planters full of bougainvillea and other colourful plants. Six teak sun beds line the pool edge, together with stylish cream sun umbrellas and teak tables. The azure-blue pool is over 40 square metres and is a constant 1.5 metres deep, with shallow steps leading in at one corner its infinity edge merges the pool with the sea, just 40 metres away. The pool is ideal for both leisurely and serious swimming. There is also a pool shower to one side of the terrace.
From the terrace, taking the teak walkway, steps lead up to the expansive games room. This is open to the terrace and pool and has a full-size slate pool table, dart-board and table tennis.
Two metre wide steps lead down from the swimming pool terrace to the staff quarters and to the walkway below the swimming pool, with its unique natural slate-faced waterfall edge. Further steps at the end of the walkway lead down to the large Thai-style sala, which has stunning views across the Thai Gulf.
The sala has rattan furniture comprising a large table, six chairs and a BBQ, ideal for barmy evenings, eating dinner in the tranquil surroundings, or just sipping tropical cocktails. It is also wired with outdoor speakers attached to the Music Unit in the sitting room and comes with a wireless remote control, to allow you to select the music that fits the mood, without leaving the sala.
The villa has immaculately landscaped gardens surrounding the property. The large lawn area, below the swimming pool, leads to steps that take you down to the rocky water's edge, where you can swim in the sea, fish or sunbath on the huge granite rock slabs that edge the sea.

Hidden away in the North East corner of the tropical island of Koh Phangan is the double bay of Thong Nai Pan. The beaches of Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai are surrounded by an ampitheatre of mountains. The beaches are white sand, the water crystal clear and the sky a brilliant blue. When you try to describe paradise, you are describing Thong Nai Pan.

the Villa is awesome. Locations/ scenery is awesome. The staff Koko & Sue are awesome & great cooks. one minor point is the road to the villa, or better yet the lack of a road, so a 4x4 is required. though if you love isolation/ privacy/ space, this is the villa.

What a fantastic time we had at Baan Napa! From the moment we arrived on Koh Phangan until our departure we had a lovely time. The weather was not as sunny and dry as we had hoped but we made the most of it. From scuba diving at Sail Rock to various excursions around the island, we never had a dull moment.
Ian was a fantastic guide and helped us figure out where to go and what to do. He made everything very easy!
Finally we adored Koko and Sue!!! We had them cook dinner for us virtually every night and the food was delicious. We ate both Burmese and Thai food and it was all amazing!!! They were so kind and loving to our 3 children and we are certain it is a holiday they will never forget.
We would definitely come and stay here again, heaven on Earth!
Thank you so much for the great review, I hope we get the chance to welcome you back some day!

Dear Ian, Koko and Sue thank you so much for a truly wonderful stay. You looked after us from the second you greeted us to waving us off at the beach. Nothing was too much trouble and everything we requested was carried out with amazing precision. We didn't have to think about a thing. We were collected by a private speed boat with welcome drinks and then met at the beach with the staff waiting to collect our bags which were taken to the villa leaving us to relax from the second we landed.
Very happy to know that you had a good stay and enjoyed our hospitality, look forward to welcoming you back, All the best Ian, Koko & Sue

What a great villa! We stayed for a week in October in perfect weather, near this unspoilt beach of Thong Nai Pan, away from the business of Haad Rin. The villa was perfect for our group of 10. A very impressive villa. The photos on the web site don't do it justice. Ian, Andy and Nik at KP provided service above and beyond all expectations, while Chai and Deng, the villa staff, were unobtrusive, extremely helpful and friendly. Helping us to maximise our enjoyment of a very special time that was our wedding on the beach. A local restaurant catered our reception on 24 hours notice! The food at Havana on Thong Nai Pan Yai is excellent and great value. We expected prices to be higher than Haad Rin, but overall, food and drink prices were on par. The local convenience stores were very over-priced, but using the 4wd supplied with Baan NaPa made the twisty road to Thong Sala a treat to drive on. Great fun!! We'll definitely be back again.
