Things to do
Villa Baan Bon Khao’s manager is ready to help you discover the top sights and book activities around the island, and having the villa’s complimentary 10-seater minivan on standby for up to eight hours each day is a great plus. Don’t be shy to tap into the staff’s local knowledge of the area, as they should be able to offer suggestions on the most fascinating and off-the-beaten path places to visit.
