We were picked up from the airport by one of the staff as promised, as we approached Ban Sua up the VERY steep hill we were a bit concerned about the location. Although lots of reviews mention the hill my husband and I were still surprised at just how steep it was!
Klaus and his wife Dara are such lovely people and Klaus took time to tell us a bit about the island and how to get about etc. We had booked the Dara Roof-terrace and it was very nice, spacious and had delightful views. The villa was very clean but the towels supplied were threadbare and not very pleasant to use. Unfortunately we decided that Ban Sua was not for us after one nights stay due to its location, I'm sure that for anyone happy to rent a bike or car for the duration would be very happy here but I'm afraid it wasn't for us. We decided to relocate and booked a hotel further up the coast at Choeng Mon, one of the Ban Sua team drove us to the hotel. As I explained to Klaus his accommodation was excellent but just not for us, we like to be near enough to amenities to be able to stroll to them. I think it's important to understand just how inaccessible these villas are without a vehicle or being super fit....we are in our 50's and enjoy walking but not hill climbing!!
Klaus told us if he managed to rebook the villa he would refund our money, unfortunately it seems he was unable to rebook.
To summarise - nice villas, lovely owner/staff but please be aware of the location, I guess I just didn't do enough research.....never mind we had a wonderful holiday the hotel we moved to was fantastic, right on the beach and within easy walking distance of many great restaurants!
