Stayed for 3 nights out of a planned 5. **Room: 8/10**The villa is exquisitely decorated and the pool in the living room is very unique. We only had a swim once which was amazing and will be a long lasting memory. The bed mattress was perhaps a bit hard for my liking and the tub in the middle of the... More

This is one of the most beautiful villas that I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The experience starts at the main entrance and doesn't end until you are getting waved goodbye to when you leave. Words don't do their two-floor villas justice. They are stunning! Just go and stay there!

카타비치에서 도보로 5~10분정도에 위치해 있습니다. 바라이빌라 풀에 튜브배드가 없어졌더군요.(no tube bed was inconvenient.) 그리고 풀 끝쪽에서 냄새가 좀 납니다. 2년전에는 못느꼈었는데요. 풀의 청결에 좀더 신경을 써야할 것 같았습니다. (There was a bad smell in the bray pool. Please mind the cleanliness.) 2가지 외에는 모든게 만족스럽웠습니다. 지금까지 방문한 태국리조트 중 가장 태국스러운 곳이었습니다. 저녁에 도착하시는 분들은 1박 사왓디 빌리지, 1박 바라이빌라... More

Firstly, the architecture and décor are extravagantly attractive in a place where beautiful buildings are scarce. Our rooms were lovely and the super efficient air conditioner was a joy to come back to after a hot day out. The staff are friendly and eager to fulfil one's slightest whim. For instance, they were quite happy to give me milk and... More

The pictures on the website and on here doesn't do this hotel total justice. It surpassed my expectations and dreams. The hotel is absolutely breathtaking, luxurious and Scenic.

We stayed 4 nights here in early July. It is totally OTT Thai decor which was amazing - always something to look at. The villas are huge with plenty of space for a family of 4 to spread out. The Baray pool is gorgeous and feels like you are in a natural river or rock pool with all the surrounding... More

In the chaos of a now very very busy Phuket, this place is still a haven of beauty and peace. Returning for the second time, it was nice to see that the villas had not changed.

We went their for our honeymoon and believe me we were not disappointed even for a single second. The villa and the amenities were far better than our expectations. Best part was the lovely swimming pool that has its entrance from the living room. Do visit this hotel atleast once. I am planning to visit soon.
