About the Owner
About Richard Haigh
We market our two villas under the name of Banyan Villas, my wife and I opened the villas in 2006 as holiday homes for ourselves and friends and also as a small business venture.
We designed our villas and had them built to our specification, we wanted them to be open and airy yet offer the privacy of private facilities - both villas have a their own private pool and jacuzzi in a secluded walled garden.
The villas are 70 metres from the beach down a garden path and quite safe for children with no roads to cross.
I am originally from UK and settled in Thailand in 2002, my wife is Thai, we live in Bangkok but are frequent visitors to the island of Koh Samui.
We look forward to welcoming you to our part of paradise!
Richard Haigh purchased this villa in 2006
Why Richard Haigh chose Koh Samui
On arriving in Thailand, I decided this was the place to settle for the future and having holidayed in Koh Samui, I could think of no better place for my future retirement!
So we decided to build our villas, we didn't want to be in the centre of town, we wanted some privacy and seclusion. Ban Tai/Bang Po met our spec, a quiet area next to the beach, but not too far away from local amenities and restaurants, on Samui nothing is too far away.
What makes this villa unique
When visiting our villas you will be able to relax in the peaceful secluded garden, enjoy a dip in you own private pool, take a 30 second walk down the garden path to the beach, to use communal pool, bathe in the sea or just to enjoy the evening sunset.
If you are feeling like refreshment, a 10 minute stroll on the beach takes you to a Thai restaurant situated right on the beach, great food and pure relaxation.
Alternatively you plan on staying in for the evening, you can relax on the balcony and enjoy the cooling evening sea breeze.
Shopping and nightlife are only 15 minutes drive away in the Fisherman's village of Bohput, for those who would like something more lively.
For us, this is paradise.
