“Should be better”
Reviewed 30 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Do not go more than 2, 3 days. It is in the middle of nowhere, Big problems with English with one exception Sheerly who is the accounter of the resort. There are 4 villas, very clouse one to the other. P pond with fishes and a big aran in the middle.
Even if Sandy, is the main guest manager, she do not understand good English and she is ashamed to ask again. For the New Year's Eve party we ake her if we have champagne. She politely answer Yes, of course. 15' before midnight we found out that is not. One of us run in the villa and brought 3' before one bottle of Proseco. For us like most Europeans, Champagne is a tradition of good luck... This is not all. To be good understand, Sandy wants to do everything for the guests but she does not understand everything, and she does not accept that in 3 weeks, you need attention and creativity.
1st day, when we arrived he told us (4 adults in this conversation) that we may have a car with driver and we have to pay just the fuel. Completely logic, because the nearest town Krabi, and Ao Nang are 40' drive from the resort. Wrong, we had to pay every trip to town 1600 baht.
I do not have time to tell you haw many little problems we had. Sheerly was treasure and married with an Australian she understand English. All the other staff, very kind, smiling all the time, but not a word in English.
So if you choose this location, remember. The pictures on the site are very good, the place is not like this. FOR 3 days perfect, and after that, move on.

“There is a lot that needs to be improved given the price of this place...”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

While the staff tried to make it a comfortable stay for us, there were several structural problems with the Villa Bua itself. The dual sinks were constantly blocked, toilets overflowed at the first flush and their packed picnic lunch was quite pathetic with each packed lunch bring very meagre in quantity that a portion was barely sufficient for the 8 year old in our group. Also, the website is quite misleading as the free ferry to the island with white sandy beaches is chargeable unless you stay for 5 nights or more ( not mentioned on the site) and upon us willing to pay, they said the ferry was not available.

All in all, overpriced for the comfort and located so remotely that you rely on the villa staff for meals in case of bad weather.

We have been informed in the evening about pop-up waste blocked in one sink. The system was replaced immediately on the next day. The second sink was functional at anytime.
About the picnic had been ordered only 8 portions of stemmed rice. We serve standard “side dish dose”
The quote send to you and our website well specify: Free transfer with our long tail boat on the two private white sand beaches on the islands in front of the villa included if minimum stay 5 nights. Your stay was only 3 nights.
The access to the beach must be forecasted according the tide level at low tide the boat can not leave the pier.
