Best western food on Mae phim, a lovely resort with nice Bali ambiance. The Thai food is grey particularly the yellow chicken curry. Good music and great also here. Rooms a great with outdoor showers there is an authentic pizzeria and gelato recently introduced on the menu my family and I enjoyed both

Villa Bali consists of a series of thatch roofed cottages around a beautiful clean pool. The only thing between the restaurant at the front of the complex and the beach is the road. In short if you like the beach why wouldn't you stay here? The building style tends to a sort of syncretic mix of Bali, Thai and Nepalese influences as apparent to this scribe and reminds me of the Pattaya and Jomtien Beach holiday resorts which we discovered while living there during the mid-1980s, in particular the Sea Sand Resort at Bang Saray. It also reminds me of a very similar beachside complex at Lombok, the Windy Beach Resort at Sengiggi. My wife and I prefer this style of complex to the sterile air conditioned mausoleum style of most modern hotels at beaches around South East Asia. It is well located being close to Rayong and about an hour from Pattaya depending on which route you use. It would make an excellent stopover if you were on your way to Trad and Cambodia on a visa run or a holiday. We found the wifi quality was excellent and extremely practical as we were in the middle of a house purchase and needed constant contact with the vendors and their agent in Australia Sitting in the lounge overlooking the beach is a great way to share sundown and associated drinks with your mate on his 60th birthday. We found the staff excellent. John and Toi and their two lovely daughters made us feel right at home and went out of their way to satisfy our every whim. The live band was a treat, so long as the local farang is kept from the microphone. The buffet birthday dinner was excellent as was breakfast. We availed ourselves of hotel drinks and brought our own wine to the party. We liked the bathroom layout and there was plenty of space for the two of us in our villa (#10). We'd go back anytime sooner or later and plan to stay longer next time if only to try one of Jon's pizzas which seem to have an excellent reputation. Thanks to Jon and Toi, Tanya and her sister (whose name escapes me) for your hospitality.

Room tip: We only used room # 10 and found it excellent.

Bali Villa is one of the best, quietly known spots on the whole eastern seaboard. The Laem Mae Phim beach, just about an hour south of Pattaya and only 20 min away from Rayong, is more like being sent back to the 70's before Pattaya existed. Discover this place before the tourists do. The American owner built a genuine wood fired pizza oven which produces some of the best real pizza this side of Chicago. Located directly on the beach, the villa compound is a virtual botanical garden, with different fruit trees planted at each villa. The decor and detail of architecture in all the buildings and landscaping reflect the skills of a true artist. Impressive. The staff are extremely accommodating without being persistent or a bother. The free WiFi and Internet connection is good enough you can escape from the city and telecommute for any business. The staff is experienced at coordinating special events, so if you have a birthday or anniversary, will create something special. The price and rates here are a real value.

Room tip: All the rooms/villas are centrally located around the pool area; there are no bad rooms.

Villa Bali is really nice and unique, a series of wooden rooms in a complex with fruit trees and swimming pool. The breakfast was included and was great, ranging from eggs and hash browns and banana pancakes. The restaurant overall was really nice with a range of home made Western and Thai food.
The staff were not overly friendly but it was unclear whether they were shy or impolite.
Through Villa Bali, we booked a transfer from the Cambodia border. The transfer was 90 minutes late in picking us up, so we insisted upon a discount.
We did find some bugs, including cockroaches in our room, not sure whether this is normal for this area?

we stayed 2 nights , when given the key to the room it was a musky smell we had to buy air freshener and turn aurcon on, no coffee making facilities,small tv with rabbit ears for a arial,bad reception on the stations, breakfast was cold and the bacon the size of a 10 baht coin...., the next day i ordered scrammbled egg and thats what i got- no presentation in the food,

the bali style shower is dangerous with the stones and the cement board , and a smell comes up from the pipes. Because the room UNITS are decorated with grass roof and straw lining in the roof ( what a fire hazard) NOT ONE BIT OF FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT TO BE SEEN)
RECEPTION need to be trained... at 5pm the next day we had to go to reception to get our room cleaned and bed linen etc changed. electricity connections broken and dangerous.
WILL I STAY THERE AGaIN : ANSWER IS NO ! needs some good management ,,,, we paid 1700 baht but got better on the way up for 400 baht ( wake up villa bali resort) before to late

but positive side is close to beach, nice gardens,good couple playing good music live ( pay them more they were good)..... BUT THATS IT!!!!

GrayganderThailand, Owner at Villa Bali Eco Resort (Laem Mae Phim), responded to this reviewResponded May 7, 2012

I am very sorry for your bad experiecne with us. Staying in the thached roof bungalows when it is raining, gives them a musty smell when the thach gets wet. As for the staff, we have already had a talk with them, their sevice has to improve. The bacon might be small but they are also supposed to give ham and sausage, and it should not be cold, we will work on this also. We appreciate the comments and will try to improve Thank you.
