“Perfect balance of pampering and privacy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We just returned from a blissful week at Suralai in the Bophut Hills. The manager was the perfect host and even encouraged us to host a soiree for two other families staying nearby. Having the chef was fantastic and he was fine with cooking for fussy kids (when we could extract them from the pool).

“Fantastic house for a long weekend with friends to celebrate a special event e.g. birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A fantastic house to enjoy for a long weekend with friends. There are 6 great rooms and the living room and pool and views are amazing. The staff is at the ready to help with meals and any requests. Also a super location to plan a special dinner. We had 30 people at the table for a birthday. The staff and facilities can run a party like that flawlessly, with beautiful setting and even fireworks afterwards, all arranged on site. Nice pool and easy access to the airport.

“Sometimes pure pleasure is beyond words”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

I am/we are spoilt.

It's fine, we admit it. We know we have - because of hard work, sheer graft, diligent research, and damned good luck - found ourselves (more often than is decent in any mere two lives) in a genuinely exceptional hotel or villa environment.

And Suralai is one of those places.

S-tunning design - the architecture, siting, room detail, aspect of the property
U-nbelievable view - sea, sea, more sea and verdant greenery around us
R-elaxing days - wake up "What would you like for breakfast/lunch/dinner, Ma'am?"
A-mazing food - whatever your little heart or (in my case) huge stomach desires
L-ovely management - thinking of adopting 'Tea'. No, of course he is not that kind of Tea.
A-ttentive staff - Tea & co. The cook Khun Chef and his wife and the Suralai Crew.
I-ncredibly attractive place

The question is not, when will we be back?
The real question is, how on earth could they stop us going back? For more, and more.

Unparalleled.

“Perfect Place to Get Away”

We ended our extended travels at Suralai to relax and we did just that. We were pampered with breakfast, lunch and dinner and drinks by the pool.

The property was stunning both visually and with the amazing views of the water and the jungle. It felt like we were in a movie star's home in the hills of Malibu, CA.

The staff and the service was amazing. The were very attentive and very helpful. The property had all the amenities you could need along with great internet service and a small gym to keep up your work out routine if needed. We would highly recommend this property.

“An awesome place, highlight of our holiday”

Suralai was an amazing place to stay. It's far more luxurious then anything we're used to, but really accessible, so we could just enjoy the views and the meals and the horizon pool without worrying that our kids were annoying anyone. The staff made us feel very welcome, and cooked delicious meals on the nights that we decided to stay up the hill, and manager was a great guy, good company and happy to drive us to local spots whenever we wanted. We'd recommend it without any hesitation, and hope we can get back there one day ourselves.

“Wow! Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed here as a group, with several young children and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff were delightful, they went beyond the call of duty with children's food requirements and entertainment, the villa itself and the fitout was suberb and the swimming pool and view was to-die-for. Being up the hill and away from the hustle and bustle of Bophut was great, but we were able to go down to the village any time, wander round the markets, have dinner or massages and get a lift back up to the villa. Loved it and would go back in a flash!

“Doesn't get much better than this”

This is probably the best place I've ever stayed in. I went with a few friends and some of them arrived at different times. When they did arrive they spent the first few minutes in shock (good shock) about how good the view was, how big the pool was, and how amazing the place was.

It was like having a whole resort but we were the only guests.

Everything was taken care of by Mr. Te the property manager. He would drive us anywhere at anytime of the day/night, get our shopping, organise our lunch/breakfast/dinner and gave great recommendations on places to go. He was also a really lovely, friendly guy and very easy to get along with.

I don't return to places very often as I want to try out new things but I'll definitely go back here one day.
