Stayed here in March 15. Villa very spacious and has everything required for a luxury break. However , I wouldn't rule out staying at the Sawadassee village next time. Reason for this is the sun very seldom shines on the private pool side therefore I spent all my time at the sw pool area. I don't think the extra cost... More

We stayed at this beautiful boutique hotel and found it to be an oasis in the heart of Kata, Phuket. The grounds are beautifully landscaped , lush with palms, tropical plants and huge archways, water trouts and intricate carved doors resplendent in colours of red & gold. The hotel design is moorish, one would think you were somewhere in Morocco... More

We stayed here for 2 Nights in August-2015. Bear in mind, this is 'shoulder season' for Phuket. So, all the trees inside the place were green, fresh and wet.

My wife and I checked-in to Villa No. 209 on the evening of 5th Aug. The whole villa, in my opinion is fantastic and beautifully decorated. The entrance to the pool was really nice with Jacuzzi. The JBL On Beat Bluetooth speakers and Apple computer provided some entertainment and was really helpful in helping us search for food and activities... More

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.

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
