Sustainability Policy:

Baan Ora Chon is a part of the incredible Chai Talay Estate. The Chai Talay Estate is not only world-class, but it prides itself on its strong ethos of sustainability and eco-consciousness.

This plastic-free resort promises not to use single-use plastic bottles, bags, straws, cutlery and crockery and guests are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and be conscious of their environmental impact during their stay.

If not possible, guests can purchase branded aluminium bottles at the villa.

CTE x Sisters on Samui Community Garden Initiative

Chai Talay Estate proudly sponsors the Sisters on Samui Community Gardens Initiative (SoS). The SoS project allows families to grow and harvest their own fresh vegetables and fruits through the use of land banks donated to the local community. The initiative came into effect during the COVID-19 pandemic as thousands of local people suffered job losses, without furlough or government support.

Since 1 acre of organic gardens spans part of the Chai Talay Estate, the donation of land banks to the SoS Community Garden Initiative was deemed to be the best vehicle to extend assistance within the region.

With this, guests can freely enjoy the gardens and the organic produce whilst knowing their stay at Chai Talay Estate helps support the local communities.

Lipa Noi, Samui:

Baan Kilee is located on the banks of Lipa Noi. These stunning white sands are commonly referred to as the most picturesque beach on Koh Samui island. Acting as the gateway to Angthong National Marine Park, Lipa Noi beach looks out to the world-renowned "Five islands" as well as the stunning mountainous backdrop of Samui’s exterior. Only 30 minutes from the airport and the vibrant region of Chaweng, this phenomenal villa opens the beach up to all sorts of activities, such as water sports, sailing, beach volleyball and even rock pool exploring.

For those up for an adventure, head off the beaten track to visit the islands beautiful waterfalls, enjoy an 18-hole competitive game of golf at the Santiburi’s championship course, or explore the local villages and hillside trails by either foot or bike. Although the sea is swimmable all year round, summer offers especially low tides with the reef visible for up to 100m. There are also a number of fantastic restaurants and 5-star resorts within the area, should you fancy fine dining away from your villa one evening.

Getting There:

FLIGHT: Koh Samui has its own Airport, so guests can flying into the island direct from the following airports: Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Phuket.

CAR: For those hiring a rental car, we suggest drop off to be arranged at the villa, or to follow the transfer van with your luggage. All you have to do is ask and we can arrange a car for you on arrival. It is extremely important to arrange a transfer for your day of arrival so our local drivers can get you to the villa easily. Alternatively, driving between Phuket and Koh Samui by car will take you through some of Thailand’s most wonderful views on the way.

TRAIN: You will depart from Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station and arrive at Surat Thani Station. Once you arrive, there will be a shuttle bus service (which you can book in advance along with the train ticket) that will take you to the coast and the Don Sak Pier. From the pier, you may take either the ferry or the high-speed catamaran to take you straight to Koh Samui. The ferry trip takes 90 minutes, and the high-speed catamaran is around 45 minutes.
