We were moved to the Arthaya Villas after booking with another nearby hotel. They were overbooked (this was not their fault, this was down to a booking website error) and they found us a place here.

Arthaya Villas are brand new, which explains why they do not have many reviews yet. We were the second people to stay here, and the first to stay in our particular villa.

The rooms are absolutely beautiful. A lot of effort and thought has gone into the simple decoration and furnishings.

The beds are very comfortable, with good quality linen, mattresses and pillows. You will get a good nights’ sleep in these beds!

There is air-con in the bedroom and a fan in the living area. The kitchenette is equipped with a sink, two ring hob-cooker and fridge, plus cooking utensils.

The bathroom is by far the nicest of our trip so far, with a decent shower. Like the other rooms, it’s very nicely fitted out with a lot of attention to detail.

All of the rooms are spotlessly clean and everything feels very new and fresh.

Plenty of towels are provided, as well bathrobes, slippers and a hairdryer. There is a flat screen TV with an HDMI cable connection in the little living room.

Lots of little home comforts have been thought of. We stayed for 4 nights, but you could comfortably stay here longer and feel right at home.

The wifi is pretty good, but you can use a Thai sim card with unlimited data as an extra internet connection backup if you need to. Top ups can be bought from the nearby 7/11.

There is a decent sized, clean swimming pool sun loungers and umbrellas. The surrounding grounds, including two lotus ponds, are kept neat and tidy.

Breakfast is done to order, with a choice of eggs, toast, sausages, muesli and fresh fruit.

You can't smoke in the villa, but you can sit outside on your own little veranda if you do want a cigarette.

The host, Athitaya, is very friendly and warm. Nothing is too much trouble and she really cares about her guests.

A note about the location: The resort is just off a main road, so it is not right on the beach. This should not put you off staying here. The road is not very busy, and you can either walk to the nearest beach, Phra Ae, in about 5 or 6 minutes, or hire a scooter to explore the islands other west side beaches. Our host arranged scooter hire for us, but there are plenty of other places renting them out to choose from.

The resort is an ideal location to either enjoy some real peace and quiet or get out and explore the busier areas. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within a reasonable distance. Renting a scooter is an experience, and certainly cheaper in the long run than hiring tuk tuks to get about. Generally it’s safe as the roads are wide and mostly quiet. (compared to similar roads in the UK) As long as you ride sensibly, and keep your wits about you, you shouldn’t encounter any problems.

We really enjoyed our stay here and wish Arthaya Villas all the best for the future. They really deserve it. Don’t let the lack of reviews (so far!) put you off – they are a new business trying very hard to make visitors welcome and feel at home. Come and stay here and see for yourself.
