I stayed at this villa with my partner. This villa had three bedrooms with the master having a jucuzzi on the balcony, two bath rooms, utility room, living, dining and kitchen area. On arrival we were presented with a basket of fresh fruit and enough tea/coffee for our first day but the kitchen was poorly equiped. There were no basins for putting food in the microwave or oven, or basic equipment for food preparation, no wine glasses or can opener.
The fans in the kitchen/dinning /lounge areas were inadequate with air conditioning only in the bedrooms which we were instructed by the owner to turn off each time we left the villa and if not done, the owner would enter the villa and turn off himself.
We were not informed prior to arrival that there was a new villa being built next door and the work here commenced some mornings at 6.30 am, the noise forcing us away from the swimming pool during the day when it would have been nice to relax by the pool. On two days we were also reluctant to use the pool as it had turned green following addition of chlorine to the pool which was feed by the local well.
The location of the villa meant that it was necessary to either hire a car or use taxis. The taxi drivers could not be persuaded to use the meters and it cost 200baht to Chawang/ 300 baht to Bophut.
