Set in Lipa Noi Koh Samui, Thailand, one of the most
desirable and beautiful residential areas on the island
Baan Puri is a truly exceptional villa. The stone wall and
heavy wooden gates give a hint of the style and quality
that awaits you inside this tropical oasis. Everything
about this property exudes luxury and excellence; and
a more spacious, well designed layout would be very
hard to find.
Once you are through the imposing entrance,
contemporary stone pillars form pathways on either side
of a large lily pond. To the right of this is the double garage
and the staff quarters and to the left is a beautifully
landscaped garden with children’s play area.
As you walk along the trellis covered pathway, where
the stone pillars are punctuated with tropical pot plants,
there’s a single storey pavilion on the left that houses two
bedrooms. The first has twin beds, a wooden vaulted
ceiling and a wall mounted 42” flat screen TV. In the ensuite
there’s a dressing area, twin sinks and an indoor rain
shower. Adjacent to the bathroom is a discrete private
landscaped outdoor shower area. The room looks out
onto the front garden area, the walkway and the water
The second bedroom has an exquisite teak four-poster
bed dressed with white drapes. This room is delightfully
furnished with birdcage-styled standing lamps and heavy
teak furniture. This en-suite also has a dressing area, twin
sinks and indoor and outdoor showers. Doors open out
with a view across the rear garden, pool and the ocean.
Directly in front of the entrance water feature is the
impressive two-storey pavilion. The ground floor consists
of a stunning open-plan living area. Set at the right
end is a stylish kitchen with a dark slate-tiled floor and
contrasting white units. There’s a central island feature
with all the high quality appliances you would expect.
At the other end of the room is a magnificent chilled wine
cellar storing up to 400 bottles running across the width
of the room, which serves as a backdrop to a ceiling
mounted 100” cinema screen. The hardwood floor in the
living area together with fully opening doors at the front
and rear help to bring the outdoors in, and the wall-less
appearance creates a light, airy and cool living space. It
also maximises the incredible views across the terrace,
the pool and the beach. The lounge area is furnished
with stylish, yet comfortable lemon coloured sofas,
some interesting ornaments and antiques such as a large
oriental gong, and solid teak coffee tables. The dining
area is dominated by a matching teak table, which easily
seats 12 people.
There’s a large terrace area which is partially covered
allowing for outdoor dining, entertaining or simply sitting
and enjoying the view. The artwork has been extended to
the outdoors with beautiful wall hangings.
To the left of the room is a feature open staircase that
leads up to the first floor. A walkway leads to two
further bedrooms that share a sizeable balcony at
the front, a large sunning area and a further staircase
that leads down into the garden and pool area. This
balcony also forms a useful covered terrace in front
of the downstairs lounge.
The upstairs bedrooms combine luxury, practicality
and the outstanding view. Each has a dressing area
and an open-plan, glass-walled en-suite bathroom
allowing you to enjoy the views whilst soaking in
the free-standing terrazzo bathtubs. Both rooms
are beautifully furnished and accessorized and
include 12” rain showers, 50’ plasma TVs and built
Taking the staircase down into the landscaped garden the overwhelming size of the property becomes
apparent. A large lawn and landscaped area separates the terrace in front of the living area from the pool
terrace and runs all the way down the right side of the property to the Sala.
To the left of the pool is another pavilion with a further double bedroom with its own inner garden area, which
has an eye-catching dark stacked slate waterfall. The bedroom has a wooden vaulted ceiling and another
teak four-poster bed, which is again dressed with white drapes. Brightly coloured cushions decorate the sofa
at the foot of the bed looking across the pool. A separate walk-in dressing room has a similarly colourful and
comfortable sofa facing the wardrobes, which doubles as a large bed capable of accommodating two young
children. This links into an exceptional en-suite bathroom. There are twin sinks, an indoor shower room and
for sheer indulgence it has a private, romantic sunken terrazzo bathtub that literally sits at the pool’s edge. A
sliding wooden privacy screen can be utilised when required.
The final pavilion is a mirror image of the other complete
with the same exceptional en-suite bathroom and
poolside bathtub. However, this room looks directly
onto a further terraced area, with its own magnificent
oversized teak daybed, that leads into the garden
and down onto the white sandy beach. Both poolside
bedrooms also have their own poolside terraces and
The beach sala is situated right at the edge of the pool,
opposite the beachfront bedroom pavilion and has a
double sided bar area, so that you can relax at the bar
either in or out of the pool. A dining area, all-weather
seating, Sonos music system with Bose speakers and
BBQ complete the features of the Sala.
The enormous 100’ long blue-tiled infinity pool has
permanent, sunken beds and has been designed and
shaped to work with the individual style and layout of the
property. The crystal clear pool is an ideal lap pool and is
entirely chemical free using the latest ionizing technology
and robotic cleaning.
The grounds have been planted with over 100 indigenous
species of tropical plants chosen for their colour, beauty
and fragrance, including rare night scented species.
Flowers are cut from the garden each day and the chef
will prepare your food using herbs picked freshly from the
garden. At night the grounds are magnificently lit to create
a truly memorable dining or party experience.
The beach at Lipa Noi is one of the finest on the island with soft white sand, good swimming conditions, outstanding
views of the famous Five Islands, the Ang Thong Marine Park and across to the mainland, and it’s perfectly positioned
for Samui’s legendary sunset scenes.
Baan Puri has everything you could wish for: sophistication; absolute luxury; high quality finishes; exquisite furniture;
a functional layout; an abundance of space; the infinity pool; the beach; the garden; the views; and the scintillating
sunset. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a truly tropical luxury lifestyle.
