“Nice hotel in Kata”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Sawasdee was a nice hotel. It is certainly not a luxury hotel (stay at their Barry villa if you want that), but it was clean, staff were very friendly, and the buffet breakfast was great.

The rooms are very small (basically just a bed and bathroom) so any lazing around is done outside rather than in your room.

For what you pay, this is a great deal.

my family recently stayed 11 nights at Sawasdee Village. Everything great that I had read was so true. Beds comfy, gardens delightful, pool serene with a lovely swim up bar & attendant. Buffet breakfast yum & good variety for a small resort. The staff are lovely and very keen to make sure that everything was perfect for you. We will be back! Thankyou :)

Nice small hotel, cosy feel, quite arty. Rooms are very small which is a bit of a pest. Pool lacks sunshine, if that's important then this is not the place to choose.
On the whole a nice relaxing place.

We have just stayed 8 glorious nights and would have loved to have stayed more. I went looking for a place that had the Thai style and old world charm and we certainly found it here. Yes there are some mozzies but we never found them a problem, the staff made every effort to control them and when combined with our aerogard (spray don't leave home with out it in the tropics!) this was not a problem. The staff could not do enough for you, I asked the groundsman about the tool he was using to remove the mangoes over the rooms and he kindly showed me and explained it (I need one for our tree). For those of you that think the rooms are small, get out more, if you want to sleep in your bed all day you should have stayed at home. There is more than enough room for two people with luggage. We walked everywhere, even to the beach it is not far, we found some great places to eat by doing this. I enjoyed the spa very much, the tea served afterwards was sensational. Our air conditioner started to leak one night but was quickly fixed without fuss. The woman that cleaned our room is the best, a true gem of a lady. I would not hesitate to come back - I loved seeing the cat she added a little something too.

Stayed for 8 nights and we loved every second. Beautiful surroundings, very attentive and professional staff, great restaurant and the pool was absolutely amazing. 10 minute walk to the beach but they have a bus every 30 minutes. We rented a bike so transportation was not an issue. Room was small but very cozy. Great value for money – we will be back!
Thank's Sawasdee!!!

We stayed there for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. This hotel is truly tries to please all the senses, a beautiful garden for the eyes, lemongrass scents wafting about from time to time, sounds of running and falling water, carved wood and stone matched with comfortable cushions and a not-too-bad kind of breakfast. We didn't try the spa as the prices are expensive compared to other offerings in the area.

I have noticed some changes from my previous stay. There used to be some lemongrass scented body wash or shampoo with were switched out. We really missed those. They have added some LED lights in the room which were day-light white instead of the more atmospheric warm whites used in the room, and those lights contrasted very badly. I would suggest they switch them back to the warm whites.Finally the toilet's air extractor (room 143) was faulty during our stay. It was giving off bad smells instead of taking them out. Our solution was to get one of those aromatic incenses to burn in the toilet to fight off the smell.

But generally these are very very very minor complaints. The hotel is a still a pleasure to stay in, and I will definitely go back when I visit Phuket again.

ps. there is a cat wandering around sometimes, and would 'beg' for food if we eat at the balcony. Not a problem for me as I am very comfortable with cats.

Room Tip: There are rooms fronting the pool, which are very convenient if one is keen on swimming.
