Lawral's review sums it all up. We visited just before them (October 5-12) and just loved it. Initially apprehensive, as we were first timers and were being accompanied by our mother who finds it difficult with steps and long walks, all our apprehensions were laid to rest immediately upon entering the villa by the superb staff. So this review is mainly dedicated to them. Firstly, Khun Noi, the villa manager, who added the personal touch and made us feel at HOME. Da and Deun are superb cooks. Take this from an avid Thai food fan who has been visiting Thailand regularly for over twenty years. Trust me the food is Awesome and nothing less. Variety, taste and adaptability to our specific tastes (we like our curries spicy) Apart from the normal Thai food, we went into Patong to the sea food market one day and got fresh lobster, crab and jumbo prawns. It was grilled to perfection. Peak is the handy man around the house and always willing to accomodate any request. I am grateful to all of them for the extra special care they took of my mom who remained mainly at home and required frequent attention. We stayed a week and did not want to leave-we got so cozy and comfortable. Massage ladies would turn up within short notice. Nothing was impossible for Da, Deun and Peak. The credit for all this goes to Noi who manages them superbly.
As for the villa itself, simply outstanding. Better than a 5 star hotel and cheaoer in the end. Modern, clean to perfection, well managed, outstanding views and yet just a stones throw away from the thick of things in Kata. Quite frankly, we were so happy, we hardly left. If there is one criticism, and I hope Noi will get this fixed, is the light from the upper windows in the rooms. Some of us got disturbed as they were waking up early due to it. Personally, it did not bother me at all. My compliments to the owners who have managed to maintain the villa in top top condition over the years.
Cant wait to go back!
