Privately secluded between towering palm trees, and facing the golden sands of Big Buddha Beach, Baan Dalah offers luxurious beachfront living on blissful Koh Samui. The villa boasts spectacular and uninterrupted views over the Gulf of Siam, a sparkling turquoise bay dotted with yachts, the famous Big Buddha golden statue shimmering in the sunlight and the jungle clad mountains of neighbouring islands Koh Som and Koh Phangan, which beckon on the horizon.

Baan Dalah was completely refurbished in 2017 and offers three beautifully appointed bedrooms, a 19-metre infinity pool overlooking the sea, landscaped gardens and comfortable contemporary indoor and outdoor living areas including a fully-fitted modern kitchen and satellite TV entertainment. A team of full-time staff including a villa manager, housekeeper and a cook take care of all guest needs. A delicious complimentary daily breakfast is provided. 

Private and secure, this villa offers the perfect getaway for a family or small group seeking relaxation, dips in the sea, leisurely strolls along the five-kilometres of sandy beach, or thrilling adventures over land or sea...

Big Buddha Beach is a quiet area in the north east of Koh Samui, just 10 minutes from the airport. The villa is within walking distance of local shops, restaurants and bars of Bang Rak; just 20 minutes’ drive from the bustling nightlife and shopping of Chaweng; five minutes from the famous Big Buddha temple, and close to the departure point for ferries and boats that venture out to those alluring neighbouring islands.

Baan Dalah is aptly named after the remarkable, long-living Dalah flower – known in English as Torch Ginger. A stay at this vibrant beachside villa is bound to revitalise and relax both body and mind.

Diane J, United Kingdom, 08-Sep-2019 - 21-Sep-2019

We have had the most incredible two week stay here in the paradise that is Baan Dalah, hosted by the 6 star team, Peaw, Dao and Pat. The level of service was truly jaw dropping attentive and simply excellent. We had a two year old with us who arrived as a stranger to the staff, but leaves with two new aunties and an uncle! They are such genuine, pure people who are very delighted when you are. The food and we sampled it all. Was among the best we have had, cooked perfectly with attentive to the finest details and flavor balance. Anything we needed, scooter rentals, boat charters, restaurant reservations, could all be take care of with the staff. Thank you so much.

James V, United Kingdom, 17-Aug-2019 - 27-Aug-2019

We are had the most amazing ten days at Baan Dalah. Thank you so much for looking after absolutely everything for us, from the amazing breakfasts, lunch, techniques to the towel arrangements and the Gin and Tonics by the pool in the evening. Renting the paddle boards for the house was a great idea and our personal trainer Marco made for fun short to the day. The team at the villa were 5 star. K. Peaw looked after us from the minute we arrived and knew what we wanted before we had even worked it out ourselves, very special man! The food by Dao was delicious for us every night and Pat kept the villa running smoothly for our whole trip. Thank you for a lovely holidays. One that we will never forget.

What an amazing villa. The location is perfect, the views spectacular and the food amazing. We were looked after by Pae, Dao, and Pat as if we were royalty. Just when you thought you needed something (anything) they were right there with it. They were very understanding and accommodating with my very severe nut allergy. This is the best villa in SE Asia that we have stayed in, location and amenities and wonderful staff. Will definitely recommend, and cannot wait to come back.

HR, Singapore, 08-Dec-2011 - 13-Dec-2011

The villa as a whole is generally well maintained altho the kitchen is modest and outdoor lounging chairs are showing their wear. Its location may not be to everyone's liking, but we chose it for its quiet location away from the hustle of the main tourist areas like Chaweng. Yet it was within 10-15 minutes cabbing to most of your restaurants. Between Bophut and Big Buddha, there was plenty of quiet charm which suited us.
The rooms are comfortable except for a nagging problem with the water heater in one of the rooms the first three nights. Eventually replaced with a new unit. And there was always the nightly 'handicraft' to look forward to with the turn down service!
While the grounds of the villa are well groomed, the beach front requires some attention. It would help if litter was cleared every morning.
The villa manageress, Khun Fon, and the live-in helper, Khun Kip, were the most attentive and pleasant anyone could ask for and ever ready with suggestions and ideas for a good time. All requests and requirements, from groceries and transportation to restaurant reservations were dealt with very efficiently.
We were very well looked after and everyone, from my 2 year old to elderly parents, enjoyed themselves. It was my son's first time at the beach and it was definitely a winner! We will not hesitate to return to Baan Dalah in the future.
