We stayed as a family ( 2 adults, 2 teenage children) in one of the Baray Villas for 10 nights in July and we found the standard of accommodation, the resort facilities and the level of service provided by the staff to be outstanding. The Sawasdee Village resort is a small intimate resort and while it may not have all... More

My husband booked this villa to surprise me, and what a surprise it was! We were greeted warmly on arrival, and was given a welcome drink and ice cold lemongrass scented towel to refresh ourselves after our journey there. It took about an hour from the airport, at a cost of 850bht (metred taxi). You arrive in Sawadee Village, which... More

We visited in June, which was a mistake in itself as monsoon season is more than a two hour rainfall every day which I thought!!

We stayed at Baray Villa last Christmas. We did an upgrade for the villa and couldn't be happier with the room. It was amazing, very spacious and the separate pool is a plus with its own bar. The food is ok, nothing more than this. Nevertheless, the hotel was beautiful. We love Thailand because people are very kind and nice.... More

I stayed at Baray Villa last month. The room of Baray Villa are very private. Moreover, this room are spacious and beautiful. For someone with a backlog, you can work comfortably with free wifi access. If you are looking for a peaceful rest, you should choose this place because Baray Villa is the perfect place for relaxation.

I couldn't be more enthralled with this place. My husband and I felt like royalty while staying here. The Baray Villas are HUGE -- way more space than you really need, but the price really isn't bad, so we splurged. The entire grounds of this place are gorgeous. We loved the Thai-inspired decor. I couldn't stop taking pictures! There are... More
