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 - two 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 Koh Samui in one of our own Villas and will be there to look after any special requirements you may have.

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 restaurants 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.

Outstanding paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect location to relax and just enjoy this is the place to do that. This marvelous villa (even better than in pictures) is situated by the beach. The beach is quiet and beautiful. We enjoyed morning runs by the beach and well as swimming and playing. Even though you can really enjoy peace and quiet you can still find numerous restaurants just by walking a couple of minutes by the beach. A perfect way to relax is to take thai massage by the beach just a minute walk from our villa. We were travelling with a group of three families and we couldn’t be more pleased with our villa. The house is well planned. The bedrooms are wisely located next to the pool and sitting area as well as the sunbeds so it is really easy to follow what the children are doing. All the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and enough space for storage which makes the stay convenient. Kitchen is nicely equipped and overall the place is really tidy and well kept.

There isn’t enough words to praise Richard and his wife. They truly made us feel welcome and they were really helpful with all our needs. They even organized a chef for us for a special occasion.

We recommend without reservations this paradise for all sun lovers. Please enjoy!

Notes:

  • Banyan Villas 1 & 2 sit adjacent to each other and have a connecting garden gate between the two. This enables the villas to be used either independently in complete privacy or together to accommodate larger parties of up to 14 guests. Within 1 kilometre of the villas you will find two convenience stores. Main shopping and a wide choice of restaurants are to be found about 10/15 mins drive away in Maenam, Bophut or Nathon. Nowhere on Samui is that far away as the island is only 20km by 25km, however, we would recommend you hire a car during your stay, if required we can arrange this for you. Driving on Samui is quite straight forward, with one major road around the island, cars are RHD - same side as UK/Australia.
