“Shangri-La - our own piece of Heaven”

person found this review helpful

26 of us (family & friends) stayed at the Villa for 10 nights along with 10 others staying nearby in Surin, to celebrate the wedding of my Daughter Anna and her fiance Peter on 12 March 2014. It was everything we had hoped it would be and more...the management and staff are just wonderful and made sure our stay was easy and a joy. The meals were absolutely delicious and the bus driver Rudi could not have been more helpful and obliging. The Wedding Day was just beautiful, with the ceremony taking place in the Sala on the top deck, followed by a dinner and lots of music and dancing. I think an Anniversary return will be on the books! AAA++++++++++++

“Excellent Retreat from the Hustle and Bustle of Phuket”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed at this villa during the end of August for 5 nights with 21 friends celebrating our friends' Bucks and Hens getaway and i must say i am very very impressed with Bann Chang Thai Villa!

Indeed the villa offered everything it promised which are tranquility, serenity, security and style!!

The best thing about this villa is the service by their staff who are willing to satisfy your every guilty pleasures like getting us plenty coconuts and other native fruits from the markets (at best prices), cooking us thai food, organising BBQ dinners, arranging for tours, etc etc.

The minor disappointments i have with this villa are as follows:
1. gym facilities need upgrading, their three cardio equipments are faulty and need replacing.
2. location is not so ideal if you wish to check out what phuket has to offer. you will have to travel 30mins at least to get to kamala beach which is the closest beach or any tourist attraction.

But i did use the word minor because when you are at this villa and in phuket in general, you will hardly get the time to use the gym as you will do alot of walking anyway if you wanna tour the city. In addition the villa offers private vans to take you anywhere and everywhere (with additional cost) if you have a large group.

Overall, it is an excellent retreat house from the hustle and bustle of Phuket. It is always nice to come home to this villa where its peaceful and greeted with smiles by its staff.

I will definitely recommend this villa to my family and friends.

Management Response
Sep 23, 2013
Dear valued guest/customer,
Thank you for your recent review of Bann Chang Thai Villa, we always appreciate honest feedback so we can constantly keep improving. That being said, it is unfortunate that did not find our personal gym to meet your standards and apologise for any inconvenience. We have taken the necessary steps to resolve this and have replaced the running machine with a brand new state of the art treadmill as well as making any necessary repairs to the other cardio equipment.
In regards to the location of the villa, I can’t explain why it would have taken you 30 minutes to get to Kamala beach as it is only about a 5 minute drive from the villa. There are also other beaches within close proximity: Surin Beach (10 minute drive), Bang Thao Beach (15 minute drive) and Patong Beach (20 minute drive).
Once again thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon.
Sincerely,
Bann Chang Thai Villa

“The most amazing villa made even better by fabulous staff!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A big group of far flung family from 2 years old to Grandparents!, gathered here for the most amazing holiday to celebrate my brothers wedding. The villa is gorgeous but relaxing but what made this holiday so special were the wonderful staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was too good! A big enough place with enough quiet corners to escape the rabble of 8 kids but so many places to spend time with family and make some very special memories!! When can we come back?!!

“Magical villa, magnificent staff, gorgeous location”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

A week was not long enough!!!!
A large group of family and friends stayed for one magical week at Bann Chang Thai.
At the end of that week, nobody wanted to leave, the staff felt like family, and if we could have postponed the inevitable we most definately would have.
Ages ranged from 5 to 72 and everyone of us had the most wonderful experience.
Stefan was very helpful and had arranged everything to our schedule with expertise and efficiency. Khun Noi made the most amazing thai meals that we rarely left the villa. Khun Gorn was the most hospitable manager and Khun Nam even travelled to the hospital with my mother to make sure she was ok in the middle of the night.
The rest of the girls made our stay both warm, homely and comfortable. They always had a smile and nothing was too much trouble.
The villa was both comfortable, away from the crowds yet close enough to enjoy everthing Phuket has to offer.
My partner and I were married at the villa and could not have found a better venue. The most talented Khun Noi also did all the flower arrangements to my delight and disbelief - does that girl have an end to her talents :)
Thank you all for the most memorable, magical week of our lives.

“Heaven in Thailand”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2012
1
person found this review helpful

Staying in this luxurious villa is an experience of a life time. We stayed with a large group to celebrate a friend's significant birthday and it has totally ruined us for staying anywhere else. The villa is situated at the top of a fairly steep hill with views to the valley below and the ocean. Cool breezes make the temperatures comfortable and all beds are airconditioned. The villa staff are so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The five staff at this large villa keep the place very clean and the pools were spotless. The staff are happy to organise tuk tuks or have regular drivers for larger groups. To say we enjoyed our stay is a gross understatement.
