Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We haven't even left this place yet but felt the need to express how much we love it.

My husband and I are here in phuket for our 2nd visit.

We decided this time to find accommodation as we travelled.

During this trip we have stayed in some of Phukets finest 5 star resorts but Baray takes the cake. Funnily enough I think the Baray Villas are only classed as 4 star?

If you are after something a little less commercial and a little more real this is definitely the one for you.

There are only 14 villas which are situated along a private lagoon pool at the back of the property.
We are already planning to come back next year.

P.S Make sure you order the massamun curry with chicken it's the best we have eaten. Oh and ask for bananas to be put in your pancakes at breakfast ;)

I was a little skeptical about staying here because of the price, but I was so glad I did. It was such an experience. The villa is a HOUSE. It is HUGE and STUNNING for décor. I loved the door to the pool and the bedroom especially. The swimming pool is designed like a private river that you access directly from your villa. It is very private and very quiet, and you feel very pampered. They bring breakfast to your villa which you preorder .... what a variety! ..... and is delicious, as is the food in their restaurant. Wonderful service as well. The only thing was that I didn't have hot water at night, but after I called, they fixed it right away. There is free internet, free transportation to the beach, and a free transfer option. This is better than the popular beaches in Phuket.

Room Tip: I liked the North Star room

Did my research and read the reviews on The Baray Villas! So glad I chose them! Loved the authentic Thai feel! The villas were spectacular and worth every penny! Aim was my personal assistant while I stayed at the villa's and was amazing! Even went out of his way to get me something from the supermarket! Superb service! Thanks Aim! (Hope I'm not misspelling your name!)
Scheduled a spa treatment at there spa and had 3hrs of bliss! Only complaint that I had is the water from the shower was a bit salty! Not sure if it's from there Eco friendly system! Quickly got use to it and wasn't a major problem! I'm already booking my return for the end of August! Great location, great villa, great service! Thanks guys!

The villa was so beautiful we could not believe it for a while. We felt like king/queen in a magical realm. All the hotel grounds is fascinating. We found the suite much larger than our expectations from the photos. Very clean and fitted with all you may need. Huge and comfy bed. It was just bliss spending time inside as well as drifting through the connected pool, which was like a dream. The staff was very friendly and most accommodating whenever we had a request. Its restaurant was another beautiful scene. We enjoyed our breakfasts (included in booking), although not very rich in selection, it was good quality. We tried once their dinner which we ordered to our room, and found it amazing as well. It took us about 15 minutes walking to get to the beach, but it wasn't good for swimming in July. They had an iMac connected to the bedroom TV (upstairs) for internet or other entertainment. I highly recommend Baray Villas for anyone looking for a special holiday with their loved ones.

Room Tip: All Baray Villas are amazing. We saw other room types in Sawasdee, they seemed like lacking privacy...

We booked the villa for 6 nights and it was amazing. From the moment we booked the rooms we were greeted with friendly staffs over email. We chose to have hotel transfer round trip, and massages everyday we stayed. With the villa, you can pick either hotel transfer, massages, facials, or free dinners. We enjoyed the massages and all masseuses were professional and well trained.

Breakfasts were included every morning. They had everything from western to asian food. It was perfect for us to start each day before all the whole day tours. When we returned in the evening, we were greeted with chocolate and sliced fruits every night. The rooms were not attached to each other and it was extremely quiet at night. During the morning when we walked out, we could see the mountains and hear the sounds of cicadas. The villas take you away from the busy streets and into a quiet and natural environment.

It was a great experience and hope we can return soon!

A little bit of heaven as you enter off the street. We have stayed in a pool villa before but chose a Baray Villa this trip and cannot believe the intimate retreat and opulence this offers, with private pool, assistant, and amenities. The spa is second to none, and staff are brilliant and watch out for your every need.

Room Tip: Baray Villas are more private but more costly but still brilliant value for money.

We upgraded to the Villas as a special treat to ourselves after a hard and tiring year. It was worth every cent, a very special place! The villa was spotless and huge! It had everything and offered privacy and quietness at all times. The staff were also very attentive and friendly at all times.

Room Tip: All villas are basically the same, all as good and private as each other
