The photos do not do the villa justice. It is spacious, but homely, everything you could want for your holiday is provided for (even sandwich bags!) All the furniture is comfy and the bed linen is good quality, and there are even dirty linen baskets...all the little things! And, everything works...so important; especially the aircon! It was just so lovely to return every day to the villa pool and to relax on the sunloungers... until it really did get too dark. We didn't hire a car, but would walk along the lane to the main road (popping in the excellent bakers on the corner) where taxis and local busses were plentiful ...and sociable...and we went somewhere different most days. The Bophut Elephant Sanctuary was our favourite day out...it was very special getting so close to them, it really is a 'must do' trip. It is an interesting 15 min walk (via the Temple Grounds where you pass a large wooden boat with a giant Budha sitting on top) into Bophut Fishermans Village, where there is an abundance of reasonably priced, stylish restaurants, with sea views, or dining on the beach which was lit up with fairy lights as far as you can see...it was very pretty and we eat well every night! There are lots of quirky shops; even a second hand book shop, which was very popular. It is clear that Victoria wants all her guests to have a good holiday, and she puts a lot of effort into making it happen. We spoke a few weeks before our departure and she sent me ideas for days out and special restaurants and suggested a hotel to stay in Bangkok, and also links to travel clinics so we could have vaccinations... and, to top if off, she organised a magnificent cake to be delivered for my son's birthday which was on our first day in the villa....it was a great surprise for him and he was delighted with it! We all felt that staying at Baan Jasmin enhanced our stay on Koh Samui and highly recommend it!
We've just spent two weeks at the villa and had the most amazing time. The villa is beautifully done up to a high quality throughout and so clean. The pool was perfect with lush tropical vegetation around it and not overlooked at all. The villa had everything you could need in it and lots of outside space for sitting and eating al fresco and relaxing on the sunloungers to soak up some sun. Victoria and Yvonne were excellent in providing recommendations and handling arrangements and transfers both before and during our stay. Everything couldn't have been more perfect.
Victoria and Yvonne arranged our hire car for us and meant we could explore the island as much as possible - lots to see and do and places to go and relax around Koh Samui. They also arranged in villa massages for us which we had under the sala in the garden - just perfect! Villa is also only a short ten minute walk from Fishermans village where there are lots of lovely places to eat and drink.
We loved it here and hope to come back some day soon!
My fiancé and I stayed here with 2 of our friends for 4 night in March 2018 and I could not imagine anything better!! From the very beginning both Victoria the owner and Yvonne the villa manager, were very responsive and easy to reach without any issues at all.
We had rides to and from the airport automatically, which was so helpful, we had Yvonne set up scooter rentals for us which were already at the house when we arrived! We even had a chef come cook for us on our last night there.. so yummy and so worth it!!
Yvonne was so easily reachable during our stay, we reached out to her with any issues or questions we had, she was a great reference for restaurants and things too!
Overall Baan Jasmine was the perfect get away, it was beautiful, not to mention the pool and yard.. WOW. The location was absolutely perfect, walking distance fisherman’s village and quick drive to Chaweng and it all it had to offer as well. I would definitely recommend Baan Jasmine for any stay when visiting Koh Samui, I hope to be back!!
We spent a long weekend in this tastefully decorated villa. The garden and pool area is beautiful, lush and relaxing. We just loved it! The villa provided a Thai cook who prepared a delicious Thai dinner on our first night and served us breakfast. 15 min walk from Bophut village with restaurants and beach bars. We´ll visit again!
Overall great stay for us, and minor issues was immediately attended to. The team was great at recommending any additional add-ons (scooter, cook, taxis).
What a beautiful place to spend your holiday, if you are looking for a beautiful, well appointed villa at a fantastic price, Baan Jasmine is the place for you. From booking to departure, everything was handled with professionalism and courtesy by Victoria or Yvonne, the villa manager.
After a long flight, we were met at the airport and taken swiftly to the villa to meet Yvonne, the standard of finish in the villa is on a par with a five star hotel, quality furnishings throughout with little touches like complimentary toiletries and beautiful linens really make the difference, the beds very comfortable and we slept well for the entire holiday, the pictures don’t do the villa justice. The outside area is just stunning, plenty of room to relax on very comfy loungers and a gorgeous pool just for you. The sala is a great spot for sundown drinks before heading out for the evening. Alec the pool guy is a lovely bloke, very friendly so say Hello and have a chat if you see him .
Yvonne, the villa manager is always on hand to help and goes way beyond to ensure you have a great holiday, even getting her lovely Husband Paul to drop off tonic water for our gin when we couldn’t find any...how’s that for service, thanks again to you both. We hired a car using the number in the villa phone at a really reasonable rate and used this to see the island at its best.
Loads of lovely things to see and do, temples, beaches and boat trips and fisherman’s village is only a 10 minute walk through the temple grounds.
There are loads of lovely places to eat and drink there, try the friendly frog or karma sutra, great cocktails and pad Thai. Billabong do a great English breakfast if you feel the need for some home cooked food .
If you choose Baan Jasmine for your holiday stay, you have chosen well, it’s a little slice of paradise that we didn’t want to leave and hope to return to one day
We miss Koh samui

From booking to leaving everything about the service was exceptional. Victoria makes the process very easy, so helpful and answered all my questions, and I had many!! When we arrived we were shown round the villa and even given a lift to the supermarket. Yvonne, manager, is great, sorted out trips, internet problems (due to power cut) and Cat the chef, she is a MUST!!! The villa is beautiful, I have not been to a better equipped villa. Lovely bedrooms, lots of space in the living area, well kept garden and the pool, wow. It is a 10 min walk into Fishermans Village through the temple with lots of bars and restaurants. There is also a small shop around the corner for basics, very friendly. Writing this review just makes me want to go back.
