I can honestly say that our time in Phuket was even more special than we ever could have hoped or planned for. We spent a good amount of time trying to find the right place that could fit our large group of 24 people comfortably. It wasn’t until we happened upon Villa Baan Amendeha and the Beach House next door that we ever really believed it could be a possibility. Working with Julia and Steve to get the villa booked and our trip coordinated prior to arrival eased a lot of the worry we previously had during our planning process.
In pictures the villa is breath taking; almost to the point of not being believable. Seeing the villa in person is almost equally unbelievable. The villa is situated in the most perfect location on the island. Ao Yon Bay is calm and beautiful. The sun rises over the hills across the bay that the villa faces. We made a habit of waking up every morning to watch the sunrise in or around the pool. It was the perfect start to the day.
Speaking of the pool area, it was perfect for a group our size. There is more than enough lounge area, and the water is always clean, sparkling, and the perfect temperature. The beach just off the property is perfect for swimming as well. Because the bay is so calm it made for perfect swimming conditions pretty much every day we were there.
As far as both villas go the accommodations are top notch. The houses are planned so well, and the architecture is stunning. Everything you could need for your trip is provided. There was more than enough space for our large group. The pool table and ping pong table allowed for hours of competitive fun for our group. The communal area and dining table worked great for us. The proximity to Sri Panwa and other surrounding attractions and restaurants worked great as well. As I said before, it was more than we could have asked for.
What we appreciated most about our time at Baan Amendeha was the care that Jay (the concierge) and the rest of the villa staff showed us during our stay. Not only do they work extremely hard (every day) to ensure that the house is immaculate, they were extremely kind and patient as well. I have never felt more taken care of. Not enough can be said about how great a concierge Jay is. He was extremely helpful getting all of our activities planned, and even made good suggestions throughout the week that added to how special our week was. One of the most special events during our trip was the BBQ dinner that was cooked by the villa chef. The food was amazing and Jay made sure that everything we could have wanted was provided. It says a lot about a person that you enter in to a business relationship with, but when you leave you feel like friends. That is how everyone in our group felt about Jay and the rest of the staff. There are not enough thank yous to express how we feel.
I would recommend staying at Villa Baan Amendeha to anyone who would like to have more than just a trip, but a complete experience in Phuket. When we go back I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else.
Thank you all!
Staying at Villa Baan Amandeha was an absolute dream. The chef cooked amazing meals for us all week, the staff were fun and kept our house in order, and Jay made every wish come true. If I needed transportation it was there in 5 minutes. If we wanted massages- all it took was a phone call. Jay was always there to help with anything, and recommend great spots to visit as well. The Villa itself far exceeded my expectations (which is VERY hard to do). All the rooms are large and well equipped with everything you could need. The beds are comfortable, and the open concept living area is the perfect spot to hang out with friends as you watch the sun set on the beach outside your door. We spent a ton of time in the pool, playing ping-pong, and having drinks at the outdoor bar. The location of the villa is ideal. It is close to everything you want, but not in the middle of the chaos that is Patong. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a luxury stay in Phuket. It had everything I could have asked for in a villa. They had to kick me out at the end of the week!
