Well after 8 weeks on the road, doing a grassroots adventure with gecko through Egypt and Thailand with basic accommodation, we were ready for a treat and that is exactly what we got.
Within 2 hours of arriving both the owners were down to our villa to introduce themselves, they are lovely people who are well traveled and speak fluent English- a luxury in itself. As for the rest of the staff they were perfectly helpful and polite.
Our villa was huge, twice the size of a standard hotel room, like a home away from home. For part of the visit we had the pool all to ourselves. It was great having a driver and car included everyday. Most towns on Phuket are just a short drive away, and Chalong town is 5mins down the road, but not the sort of place where you can walk everywhere. I did a Thai cooking class one day, we went into town to the local markets and spent the morning cooking popular Thai dishes.
We had a wonderful time and would love to come back again sometime.
