“Fantastic !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2011

It seems i made a wrong review concerning hotel Sawasdee Village! I didn't notice that THE BARAY VILLA had his own rating on tripadvisor.
This is a total different story than hotel Sawasdee, although the restaurant, massage-parlour and reception are the same. There is nothing to compare ! This is unbelievable how nice our stay was over there, we were truly overwhelmed !

We upgraded from a perfectly nice but small room in the gorgeous Sawasdee Village hotel of which the Baray Villa is a part... asking for a larger room and getting this mansion I never wanted to leave! Private pool, wireless, Apple mini, the biggest and most comfortable bed in the world, an outside rain shower and full indoor bathroom, as well as 2.5 hours of spa treatments or dinner PER DAY... I was in heaven. My partner and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Kata beach was lovely, especially close to thehotel, the staff were gorgeous (hello Tuk Tuk, hope you're well!) and we can't recommend this strongly enough. Please go and experience it yourself.

My partner and I spent a week in Thailand and spent our last 2 nights in this hotel. The last night was my birthday and my partner surprised me by upgrading us to the Baray Villa... I am a bit of a sook but when I walked into the Villa, I cried! It was the most amazing gift! This place is amazing! I could not boast anymore about it. It was absolute bliss, perfection and just sooo relaxing! We had a private jacuzzi and pool, sun lounges, massive bed and bath. You even have a foot spa when you're sitting on the couch. The service was just the best and they even organised us breaky in the Villa and a birthday cake (and they all sang happy birthday to me!)
We felt so well looked after and so welcomed. I can't wait to go back to these Villas! This was the best way to end our trip, but at the same time we were having so much fun that it was a shame to leave.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay here. Booked a Baray Villa suite which gave access to the private 'canal' pool which we had to ourselves. The gardens are beautifully designed and maintained. Set a little back from the beach, the hotel itself offers very welcome peace and quiet, whilst shuttle service allows for easy beach access, Buffet breakfast offered lots of choice and food here and at dinner was of good quality. We treated ourselves to a spa package which was superb and excellent value (half price for 2nd person). The staff were a delight - smiling, attentive and always keen to go out of their way to be of help. We had read a review beforehand warning about mosquitos, but didn't find them to be much of a problem. Rooms are sprayed twice a day. You could always bring along a protective spray for bedtime if you find they bother you. We would definitely go back to Saraswadee Village. A real treat...

We had a short 3D2N holiday in Phuket. This is a purely relaxation holiday and therefore, we decided to invest in a good accomodation. I was choosing between Malisa Ville and Baray Villa. In the end, the latter won on price (very rarely) and newness of property. Right from the entrance of the property, the surrounding gives a jungle-like feel and has a lot of greenery. The villa has two storeys. For those who has problem using stairs, please take note. Check-in was fuss free and took place in the villa itself. Sweet lemongrass welcome drinks and cool towels were provided while we were checking in the villa. The butler, M showed us around the villa to familiarise us with the property. Please pay attention as there are many switches in the villa. Jacuzzi is big but the water was a bit too cool for liking. The water in the jacuzzi is linked to the private pool. So, don't expect warm water unless it is a very hot afternoon. Private pool is rather small. Two floats are provided but you can't maneuver at all when the two floats are in the water. Private pool is linked to the main pool outside. There is a gate that separates the private and main pool. However, don't expect complete privacy. Part of the private pool can be seen from the main pool. Sunbathing in nude is strictly prohibited. With regard to private pool, Malisa Ville wins in this respect. Main pool is quiet. There was no one at all even though seven villas were occupied at that time; so, we had the whole pool to ourself. Oasis is the name of the pool bar and prices are pretty reasonable. The beach may look near on the map; however, ClubMed blocks the way to the beach. You have to take a detour. Turn left once you reached the end of Ket Kwan and walk for another 400m. Beach was not in a great condition when we were there (3 Oct). All in all, this is an excellent accomodation at a very competitive price. It has met and exceeded expectation. Suitable for honeymooners or couples. Trivial: A different star sign is allocated for each villa. Eg, taurus, aries etc. You may want to request for a room that has your star sign.

This is my second stay in a Baray Villa and it was in every way as good as the first time. This hotel is a real hidden gem. Step into the entrance straight from the road and you enter a true oasis. The swimming pool is edged by the most beautiful plants and trees and you feel that you are swimming in an undiscovered lake with an amazing waterfall at one end.

To top it all the staff and service are exemplary!

I shall definitely be returning for another stay.

From the moment you step into the resort it is like being in another world. You leave all the madness and mayhem behind you as you experience the fresh scent of lemongrass and the peaceful sound of running water. The grounds are beautifully kept. The staff always friendly and willing to help in any way. The villas themselves are simply outstanding. we have stayed in many hotels throughout asia and the pacific and have never experienced the opulence and luxury that is The Baray Villa. Having a butler was a new experience for us and Dan was amazing! From serving us at breakfast to making restaurant reservations, nothing was too much trouble.

Would we go back to The Baray Villa? We wouldn't go anywhere else in Phuket!
