“Peaceful oasis in a tropical environment”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I with our four children (9, 12, 14, 15 years) recently stayed at Villa Galanga and loved everything about it from the moment we walked in. It is a stunning, spectacular, spacious and absolutely beautiful property. The attention to detail is amazing and the villa is beautifully decorated with both a modern and Thai style. The property is situated amongst a luscious garden surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.

Although the villa is 5 minute drive from the town, a tuk tuk is available to take you to town free of charge, twice a day. You are also given a mobile phone and a contact person, Fah, who is always available for any queries. There is a gardener and a housekeeper that live on site so if any problems occur, they are also available. The managing director of Krabi Villas, Mark Rollins, came to meet us personally when we arrived and upon our departure. He made us feel very welcome.

We highly recommend Villa Galanga if you are staying in Krabi. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we cannot wait to return.

“Beautiful villa... Secluded magic... Well serviced”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

We have just spent 5 nights at this beautiful villa. On the whole our experience was magical.

We had beautiful, attentive service from Fah and the Krabi Villa Company.

Tips: the complimentary tuktuk rides to ao nang are great... And you can hire a long boat direct from the beach for next to nothing... So we did Railaybay one day 200 baht pp return and the islands snorkelling another day 1700baht private boat. Don't go through a hire company.

We pad for our own transport 800baht return to go to Frog and Catfish twice and further afield as Ao Nong is overrun by tourists and we had a very bad experience in a restaurant owned by an Indian (bamboo which is not on trip advisor)

Laundry is fast, great and affordable.
In house dining was excellent but we didn't rebook as it ended up costing a lot... I misread the booking form and thought it was 250 baht pp for lunch and dinner but it was only for one so we got charged 500 pp plus 2500 baht for ingredients for lunch and dinner the day we arrived.

We found the in house massage to be pushy and double the price paid in Ao Nang. However to the credit of Fah and Krabi Villas they responded immediately to our concerns and more than compensated for the invasion

As others have said you do have to get supplies, cook and clean up. The villa and pool are cleaned once a day. And the fourth room is not at the same standards as the rest(smaller, no bath, and next to washing machine and connected to staff quarters not the main house)

BUT the benefits of having your own pool, beautiful huge rooms... Go for it!!

“Great family vacation spot”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012
2
people found this review helpful

If you're looking for a get away vacation from the hustle and bustle of noisy beach towns then this place is perfect. The pictures on their site doesn't do this villa justice. The place is huge and their pool is perfect for lounging.
We were a group of 6 adults and I also had our 12 month old daughter. The place is very kid friendly, since there are no stairs, but you do have to be careful since it is very easy for kids to go outside and to the pool area.

Even thought the villa is far from the noisy tourist areas they have a very convenient shuttle option that takes you to the beach and if you are planning any of the island hopping or scuba activities then the tour operators come and pick you up directly from the villa. The cell phone the villa provides is extremely useful when it comes to coordinating these activities.

But if you're looking for a 5 star hotel stay where they have room service 24-7 then this is not the place. The villa is self sufficient and they have staff that comes every day, but if you suddenly have the urge to get ice cream or walk over to a bar at midnight then you're out of luck at this villa.

Having said that, the service here is impeccable. We had the villa chef cook us 2 dinners and the food was fanstastic. My wife also raved about the in house massage service.

All in all, this was a great family vacation and we hope to come back to Villa Galanga someday soon.

“Amazing house, fabulous holiday in such a scenic area”
Reviewed 27 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

people found this review helpful

This house and garden was beautifully presented and maintained. Very conveniently located to the beautiful area of Ao Nang. Heaps to do- such a scenic area (better than anticipated). All the staff at the villa were helpful, reliable and importantly not intrusive. The villa was complete with everything you need including nice touches like first aid kit and a mobile so you can easily communicate with staff / taxi.

We thoroughly enjoyed the meals prepared by the guest chef to villa- she made lots of great food (better than what we had at local restaurants) which was so convenient, especially with young kids.

We had the 4th bedroom as we were two families but just be aware that it is very separate from the main house so not suitable for younger children i would suggest. All three bedrooms under the main roof are massive and can easily fit a family (king size bed and can get a single mattress in room for kids to top and tail). If you have young kids: Access to the pool could easily be achieved by an adventurous 2.5yr-3yr old as the locks are low and easy to release from within the bedrooms and living area.

Definitely stock up at the Tesco supermarket if you are coming from Krabi airport as there is not much locally and its 20-25 min to go back to eg breakfast foods, coffee, alcohol and fresh milk.

The only suggestion I have to improve the stay, is to have the option of breakfast prepared in the villa. The fresh croissants (delivered each morning) were lovely but it would be nice to have other options eg fresh fruit. The beds are very firm in this house but most of the party found them comfortable.

Thank you, i am recommending this property and this trustworthy company to anyone who cares to listen about our holiday!

“Fabulous Villa, excellent service. Beautiful Garden”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We Stayed at Villa Galanga in July 2012.
We were a famly with two young kids. The place is just spectacular. Lovely lush tropical gardens, which were very well maintained by the gardener/pool man. He was a lovely guy who used to take out different toys/pool games for the kids every day. Very pleasant with a smile on his face.

The pool was huge, safe and very private.

The house keeper was lovely too, she used to bring us hot Croissants every morning for breakfast which was a great touch. One of the evenings , she was just passing by and dropped in with some local snack of fried Bananas. Which was lovely.

We had the cook come in one evenng to cook. THey asked us what we wanted, and it was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend getting the cook in atleast one evenng.

There were TukTuk's to the Town when you wanted. Which was really convenient.

Very professionally run, and managed.
We never saw the manager Mark, though he promised to come in twice, and cancelled at short notice. I wanted to meet him as am considering buying a Villa in Thailand. I ended up dealing with another company who I am very happy with.

The Ao nang beach, which is the beach closest to the property is really very underwhelming. That is the only downside to the place. You have to go to one of the local Islands for a day trip if you want good beaches. However this has nothing to do with the property we stayed at. (Just thought I would mention it)

“Luxurious Villa a little remote from the beach”
Reviewed 16 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

people found this review helpful

The presentation of the villa is exactly as it appears in the photos, 4 couples could comfortably reside there. Bathrooms are huge and have and oversize bath, huge shower, separate enclosed toilet and two basins.

There is live in gardener/cleaner living within the compound monitoring anyone entering. A huge compound with two villas completely separate. Sit in a rubber plantation (not palms although there are plenty of palms in the compound. All bedrooms airconditioned, meals living area has ceiling fans, pool and house is immaculately cleaned everyday. Fresh flowers from the garden and orchids are spread through the house.

At the other end of the mobile phone provided is a villa rep more than happy to assist with any requirements relating to the house, transport, or tours.

Getting a cook in to cook a thai meal is dirt cheap ~ 100USD for 7 people including provisions.

Pool was consistently 30 degrees Celsius so perfect to jump into and live in.

It is a little tricky to find and not everyone knows where it is so note the route! Geckos move around the ceiling of the meals area but keep to themselves.

Perfect for a very relaxing week away

“Probably one of the best villa to rent in Krabi”
Reviewed 5 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

people found this review helpful

I can say you have a very positive impression when you first step in the Villa Galanga. The incredibly large living room (too large maybe), the impressive kitchen counter (too long maybe), the nice rooms and bathrooms. All ok. Equipment is complete.
It is also very convenient to provide two free round trips per day to Hao Nang by tuk-tuk. It can contains 10 people and the drive to the small city is about 5 to 10 mn.
The garden is large, the pool standard.
We took twice the cook for dinner, good thai food and good BBQ. But this is extra and you will need to pay for it. Also there is no service included besides daily cleaning, means you have to clean the dishes since it is not proposed. We had it done anyway with the housekeeper living close to the villa, with good tip at the end of the week.
If you are used to rent villas in Bali,this is the main difference b ut for a week it is manageable.
It is also a good idea to stop for shopping at the Tesco supermarket after leaving the airport (45mn allowed to shop there by the MPV driver). Note that in Ao Nang you will only find 7/11, no large supermarkets (and no Schweppes for the gin tonic..!).
Krabi islands and beaches are just nice.
