Baan Forty is a spacious resort in the south of Thailand. The 130-meter beach-front property is located on the secluded Klongwahn beach, which makes it the perfect place for your vacation.

You might have seen or heard the word baan in guesthouse or hotel names in Thailand before. Baan means home or residence, in Thai.

As the name Baan Forty Resort” suggests, the resort is like your home away from home.

When Police Colonel Lek, who is a member of the Forty family, built his home here over 30 years ago, he named it Baan Forty.

Later on, his wife Khun Rosana decided to start a family-run resort featuring a few bungalows, so they simply used the same name for the resort.
