Villa Baray is very atypical with a strange but very nice Thai/Moroccan architecture. Note that Villa Baray is the luxury part of the Sawasdee Village hotel which is really not with the same standing (same spirit but small rooms and small swimming pool). Hotel is in the city and not too far from the beach (10 min by walk). A... More

We booked this resort with Andaman Adventures (great company to ask for advice if you are looking for somthing away from the rabbit-warren concrete monolith type of hotel which personally I loathe) and we were very happy with the choice. This resort oozes Thai style luxury. Pure class. This resort is located in a quiet area of Phuket (which is... More

The Baray Villas by Sawasdee Phuket was recommended to us by Andaman Adventures. These guys really do know how to pick them. We were blown away from the moment of checking in.

I and my family spent 2 nights at Baray Villa, This was a very comfortable and special design villa that we were feeling very relax for our holiday. But we didn't use the outdoor pool because it were too cold to use. Breakfast was not much choice and normal. Overall feeling was good and enjoyed.

We enjoyed this hotel very very much, it was the last stop in a tour of the region put together by andaman sky – we will never forget this holiday.
