This was our third visit to Baan Sawan Villa, and although it had been 7 years since our last visit, the villa, the staff and the whole experience was still as lovely as we remembered.
The villa is as beautiful as ever; well appointed and extremely comfortable. The huge, lush, green garden had matured and was a stunning decadent addition to the terrace and pool area. The views across the valley below the pool terrace, out to the Bohphut beach and the islands beyond were magnificent, both day and night.
The on-site staff: Star and Levy went above and beyond to assist in any way they could; including preparing delicious meals, organising a private chef to come to the villa, suggesting restaurants and making reservations where necessary, as well as keeping the villa, the pool, terrace and garden looking immaculate for us, throughout our stay. All of this was done with minimum fuss, and intrusion and always in a friendly and helpful way.
A car is advisable as the villa is situated at the top of a long, steep hill, high in the hills overlooking the Bohphut area and beyond (but this is one of the things that makes it so spectacular). Levy arranged this for us in advance and a suitable vehicle was delivered to the villa on our first morning. Levy was kind enough to drive for us, when we didn't feel like driving, or the desire for a few cold beers with dinner was too much! A car gives you the flexibility to visit other beaches and other parts of the island, none of which are very far (it took us less than 1hr 15 minutes to drive around the whole island). Driving is on the left and is easy and we never had any issues finding suitable parking.
There is really nothing I can add, but to say that I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you decide to visit. Hopefully we will be returning soon.
