“Idyllic 6* paradise home from home!”
Reviewed September 10, 2019 for a stay in September 2019

What can we say except that our wedding ceremony held at this spectacular & serene venue exceeded all our expectations!!
Wonderful location- quiet yet only a short drive from all local amenities, the minibus provided and Jone our ever dependable driver took us wherever we wanted to go to.
Lily, who is the Housekeeper, chef & our adopted “auntie” for our stay and helpers Nang, Peel & Jeffery made our stay even more memorable, notably on our wedding day with a superb wedding feast showcasing the best of local produce prepared in the traditional Thai way, wowing all the guests!!

The Villa is sumptuous, beautifully appointed and the mattresses were aiming the most comfortable we had ever slept on- rooms were palatial and spotlessly clean & maintained.

Villa Sanyanga is more than just a villa or guesthouse, more a luxury home from home where we were truly pampered from the start of our 10 day stay right through to the last morning when we were given local fruits -mangoes, dragon fruit, rambutans- as gifts to take back with us, a lovely surprise & gesture by the terrific Lily & staff!

We will definitely return for another stay in the future, and would like to say a huge thank you to Lily & her team for those 10 wonderful days!

Thank you so much Alex, this is wonderful to hear. First of all that your Thai Buddhist wedding ceremony went so well, and secondly that you loved the villa so much and enjoyed your whole holiday/honeymoon. All the staff enjoyed having your there for that 10 days, and join me in thanking you for your kind words. We hope to see you back again for your wedding anniversary!

“Can we go back now??”
Reviewed August 20, 2019 for a stay in August 2019


We just returned from a long weekend girls trip to Villa Sangyana to celebrate my birthday and it appears we now all have a post holiday depression!

We had an amazing couple of days where we didn’t need to leave the villa for anything! We did force ourselves to go to Patong one night but could well have (and possibly should have) just stayed at the villa! Lily kindly helped to arrange a yoga class and daily massages (even managing to organise enough masseuses so we could all get a massage at the same time).

We were interested in doing a Thai cooking class and it was then suggested that Lily could do this for us at the villa rather than going somewhere else. She had done all the prep work and then showed us how to put it all together to make an amazing meal of our choice. Every meal we had was amazing and she was able to adjust dishes for our varying tastes, often doing a spicy and non spicy version of a couple of dishes!

Having Jone to take us where we needed to go and to pick up and drop off guests with varying arrivals and departures made things a lot easier.

Jone was also able to suggest amazing places to go for meals when we forced ourselves to leave the villa. The beach club was a great first meal in Phuket!

Jone also took us to a local supermarket once we arrived to stock up on snacks and drinks for the weekend.

The rooms were all immaculate with plenty of space and if we hadn’t all wanted to stay by the pool, we would have had lots of options to get away.

Despite a dreary weather forecast, once we arrived we had perfect weather so we could spend time catching up and relaxing by the pool.

We would all highly recommend staying at Villa Sangyana, whether it’s for a family gathering or a trip with friends. We are already thinking about when we can go back!

Jacquie made the planning super easy and Lily and the team made the stay amazing! We all hope to return soon!

“Amazing Holiday”
Reviewed August 19, 2019 for a stay in August 2019

The villa is beautiful and spacious. There are plenty of places to enjoy the view and relax either all together or on your own if you need peace and quiet. Lily, the Chef was so lovely and accommodated all our requests and the food was amazing. And having a driver, Joan, pretty much on call made life so easy! Would definitely stay again and highly recommend. B.

“Living like the rich and fabulous”
Reviewed August 7, 2019 for a stay in June 2019

I don’t think I’ll ever top this amazing villa experience. We had an awesome driver Joan that made it so convenient, safe and affordable for us to experience Phuket. The villa even arranged our excursions! We had the kindest chef on earth, Ms. Lily, who put her heart into every delicious dish. Lily even made a specially requested dish of one of the ladies and Lily successfully brought back her childhood memories after one bite. We had a feast daily for breakfast and dinner. We had lovely staff that cleaned our rooms and laundered our clothes daily if we wanted. This luxurious villa had all the amenities and even some hidden gems. We even had masseurs come to villa on call. Our Thai 13 crew had the time of our lives.

Reviewed June 28, 2019 for a stay in June 2019

This has been best trip ever, everything you could want (food, trips plans, transport)is offered by the villa staff who know the area and will take you wherever you need to go, the house mom will take care of your food needs the staff freshin the rooms and wash clothes every day. The house is set up for entertaining and relaxing, they will book your trips for pick up and drop off, and the van will take you where you want to go, they will even order massages to your room for you, this is definiatly home away from home for us.

“Everything we thought it would be and more. Amazing cruise too”
Reviewed May 29, 2019 for a stay in May 2019

Although a lot of others say the reviews are true, I still had some skepticism because I've never seen a villa in Phuket with such highly positive reviews across the board. I went during the beginning of the rainy season and we had no serious rain except over night our first night at the villa. We were a group of 5 ladies celebrating some milestones on a girls trip.

Well, have no doubt, everything is true. They surpassed my very picky and exacting expectations with flying colors. The reservation process with Jacquie was seamless. She uses Payoneer which accepts American Express now so that was very preferable. Jacquie is legendary in every way and super responsive. She also uses WhatsApp in addition to email.

While at the villa, Lily and her staff of about 10 were unreal. The level of service, the food, the concierge level suggestions and arrangements, made all of us feel at home and well supported. I can't emphasize the food. We were in love with each meal and her cocktails. Lily's genuine warmth and big heart was one of the best experiences ever. She knows everything and I was able to get some tailored clothes made and pearls because of her suggestions. Her English is impeccable too and anything you need will be taken care of with haste. Have no fear because Lily is there!

Because the owner of the villa also has a yacht cruise company as well, we took the opportunity to go on the Shashani 43 ft catamaran to Phang Nga and it was one of the best experiences we had while in Phuket while supporting the owner's other business. I wrote a separate review about this but the captain and crew of that boat were so professional and got us away from the rain and instead we went to a beautiful spot that we didn't even know was a possibility. Above and beyond.

The only suggestion I could make is having some bath accessories available for the amazing bathtubs in the ensuites. Things like lavender oil and bath bombs were instantaneously provided on request by Lily, however. Also, the annex room is quite cramped so I highly suggest using it only if necessary. The rest of the villa is so spacious that I'm unsure whether it is truly needed unless someone wants extra privacy. The other thing I'll mention is that everywhere I stayed in Thailand had fairly loud air conditioning. It is just the nature of things in this country. Simple silicone earplugs at night were my fix to this issue for the entire trip.

Advice for future guests: have an idea of how many meals per day each person will consume. That way you'll know how much cash to provide Lily. A good rule of thumb that Jacquie provided me was 800 THB per day per person if 3 meals are served.

Bottom line is that not only is the home well built and the pictures are accurate but the staff are top notch that will make for a lovely and cherished experience. You cannot go wrong and you won't get a better value. After spending several days digging, I jumped on Villa Sanyanga when I realized that it was available and that was one of the best travel decisions I've made in years. You will not regret this lovely home and the optional cruises as well.

“Villa Sanyanga is perfection, look no further!”

Where do I even begin? This was by far the most amazing stay I've experienced through AiRBnB. We were a group of 19 visiting Thailand for vacation. Villa Sanyanga is exceptional, from its' spacious bedrooms, amazing infinity pool, beautiful sunsets, and incredible staff.

There was enough space for each person to sleep in a physical bed, not a day bed or sleeper sofa. This was incredibly important for our group. The common spaces were very accommodating and clean and the pool area was our hangout spot for hours at a time. The sound system was incredible.

Outside of the villa accommodations, the staff is truly what made the stay worthwhile and feel just like home. Jone, the villa driver, is fantastic and flexible. Lily, the villa manager, reminds you of your loving grandmother. Her cooking left our entire group wanting more. Our complimentary welcome dinner and breakfast each morning (we paid for groceries) were great. You must try her pancakes, green curry, and pad see-ew! We loved her cooking so much we asked her to do an additional dinner for us during our stay (we paid for groceries).

Outside of cooking, Lily and her team took great care of our rooms and even washed, dried, and folded our clothes prior to our departure. She even taught us how to make curry and scheduled thai massages for us at the villa.

Villa Sanyanga met and exceeded all of our needs and I would highly recommend this property to a large group.
