This place and the Baray Villa was magical. It was 2 stories and the bedroom was on the second story. The bottom level had a seating area in the living room and also had direct pool acces from the living room which opened doors to the community pool it was the most romantic hotel and room. It was truly Thai authentic. The staff were so nice and the location was great. We rented scooters across the street at Tim Tim’s which I highly recommend. Beautiful place and very safe. The room had a guest bathroom on the bottom floor and a big living room area with tv. The bedroom was up the stairs and had a separate tub and shower and big space. We stayed in the Moon Suite Baray Villa. It was the most incredible experience. Kata was a lovely area. If you have the chance to stay in one of the Baray Villas please do so it will be one of the most memorable experiences.

An amazing stay, the baray villa was what we expected and much more. The beautiful walking pool seemed like a fairytale. Staff was very helpful and always ready to help. Breakfast had a little bit of everything and great coffee. Finally, the general architecture of the hotel and the attention to detail made us feel that we had a luxury stay!

The hotel is actually located inside Sawasdee Villa. The Baray Villa consists of 12 suites (all named after zodiac signs) and only villa guests can access this area and the private pool. There was no typical driveway where you can pull in and check in. You get dropped off at the side of the road where the pathway to WALK into the property is. Don't get put off by this! It's a short quiet nature walk to the hotel lobby, where they greet you with hand towel and some sort of sweet tea. The check-in process was slow but I think that's just the vacation mood they provide. The suites were two levels. They were comfortable, unique, and very spacious.In our suite - downstairs: 2 single beds (futon style) in the living room with access to pool, toilet, outdoor shower; upstairs: 1 king bed, foot spa, bathtub, shower, toilet Since Phuket has many mosquitoes, they actually provide insect repellent for your room and ointment for you in case you get bit, so look out for those things! You can ask them to refill it for free too.

Amazing stay, most welcoming workers, we were there while they had some challenges with mosquitoes, but they dealt, and had pro company to come remove the worst hazard. I think there welcome drink is awesome!, I can also recommend the morning buffet. About dining, we had a bit mixed experiences. Another great thing is its possible to have nice middleranged walk to the beach.

We stayed in the Baray Villa and just got home. It was absolutely gorgeous and huge! We loved our own private entrance to the pool and sun deck. I would recommend staying here. The hotel itself is lovely and the staff can’t do enough. The only downside is that We did get bit by mosquitos quite a few times. This is expected in Thailand but there are more then usual in this hotel. That’s the only thing that caused a bit of a dampener on the holiday as we couldn’t sit outside for long. The staff do what they can but it does seem like quite a problem.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your valuable comment on TripAdvisor that will support us to improve our rooms,Regarding the mosquitoes, Phuket is a tropical island, and so mosquitoes and humidity are unavoidable. We’ve tried and will continue trying every possible ways we can to lessen the numbers of mosquitoes in the hotel for the more comfort of our guests. We try our best to eliminate all the stagnant water and every pond in the hotel has fish in them, which help eliminate the mosquitoes and its larvae. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. Thank you once again for you kind choosing Sawasdee Village for your accommodation. We hope to have a chance to welcome you back in your next visit to Phuket. Sawasdee Village & The Baray Villa Team.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, I cannot speak for the other rooms but we stayed in the Villa which has a in room Jacuzzi that lead out to a private pool area exclusive access to the 10 or so villas. The villas have a large upstairs bedroom and bathroom and a downstairs with a large living area and another sink and bathroom. There is also an outdoor shower with privacy. This is a great hotel and the service was excellent, there is also a very nice Thai restaurant that is part of the hotel and where breakfast is served. The hotel is a 12 to 15 minute walk to the beach.

The Baray Villa ... one of the most unique hotel experiences I have ever had. The place is beyond words and truly heaven. I spent my last two nights in Thailand at Baray Villa and am already of dreaming of coming back here. There is now way to describe what the place is like. A two story villa with a pool that comes into your own living room and then feeds into another private pool which only the other Baray Villa guests can access. Not to say the rest of the resort is not equally as incredible which is what makes staying here an experience versus your run-of-the-mill top notch resort. I could have easily booked one of the other standard 5 star resort properties in Kata Beach but choose Baray Villa due because the entire resort being 100% unique. The entire property is a work of art. The spa - I spent 2 hours each day having spa treatments. Incredible! I cannot encourage the spa enough. The spa treatments at the Sawasdee/Baray Villa are unlike any other I had my entire time here in Thailand. The hotel puts together the perfect packages which you pick from and you leave feeling like royalty. I had Thai facial, body scrub and wrap, aroma therapy massage - absolutely heaven. The staff were exceptional. Every person I met from the front door security guard who always noticed me and made sure I safely crossed the street, every single time without missing me once to the front desk reception staff that took care of my every need. I confused my flight time and the front desk were able to have a car for in 2 minutes. Every wish you have they will help you with. I will come back to Kata beach just to stay here.
