We went in Nov 2013 for our Honeymoon and was pleasantly surprised at the Baray Villa. The staff was amazing! They did everything and anything we wanted, even if it was not part of the schedule. The restaurant's food was so good that we ate there for 4 nights. The actual Villa was much bigger than what we thought. It's... More

I booked 2 nights at the Baray after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and I wasn't disappointed. The villa is exquisite with a fairly unique design of a Jacuzzi in the living room that leads to a private pool which then leads to a common pool. The villa itself is 2 storeys (in case it wasn't obvious) with the bedroom... More

We stayed in one of the Baray Villas for the last 2 nights of 10 day trip visiting family in Phuket and would definitely recommend it, with a couple of caveats. First, the villas are incredible - enormous size relative to their cost, sumptuously decorated and each with direct access to a large pool, private to the villa part of... More

This was the high-luxury part of our multiple destinations custom-written tour of South Thailand, done by andaman adventures (S.Thailand specialists). We’d also like to mention them for a great job done, this was the first time we had booked a custom-made vacation and know we know it won’t be the last. It is great fun to visit more than just...

I have to thank the staff at the Baray Villa (Sawasdee) for looking after me and my husband after I took a tumble in the street and broke my foot!

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
