“Like a 5 star hotel, only better, WAY BETTER!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lilly, Jone and Jaquie together made this a vacation to remember. From day one, the day trip on the yacht to that evening's birthday dinner for my husband John, perfection! Truly the definition of relaxation. Lilly and staff cooked and cleaned and thought of everything when packing us up for our daily excursions and daily meals, they were there, but they were never "in our way" always out of sight but there when we needed them. Truly the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. And the vila! My goodness, luxury at it's finest! The most beautiful and luxurious villa you could hope for. Views from the dining area and pool, spectacular. We will definitely be coming back.

“Exactly what was advertised and the service exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Villa Sanyanga. It totally met our expectations, Jacquie did a wonderful job with the photos and explanations, we were not disappointed. Lily is truly an asset and she exceeded our expectations. She willingly brought our boys into the kitchen and taught them a few of her recipes, which my son has made since returning, and even took them to the local market with her for shopping. It was a real treat for the kids! We ate away from the villa a couple of nights to give Lily a break. Super easy and there are great options. The driver was very good as well, always ready and waiting for us. Lily joined us on the cruise, we were told the regular cook was away at temple. She obviously prepared fantastic meals for us and we appreciated her hard work. The two maids were also kind and efficient, the rooms were always clean, they do great work.

“Amazing luxury villa and yacht trip”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A group of ten of my best friends stayed at this villa in may for the 2 nd time in 3 years. we arrived at the airport and were picked up by the tiger marine bus. On arrival at the villa mama lily and the other staff were lined up to welcome us.
Mama lily remembered all of us and gave is all a big hug to welcome us back. Shes like a 2 nd mum to all of us now.The food in the villa is world class and was better than any of the restaurants we ate at in Phuket, any request we had was immediately sorted by mama lily. Including arranging 8 masseuses to the villa after our day out on the yacht.
The yacht is amazing and really made us all feel like we were living the millionaire dream for as long as it lasted. The crew on the boat are all such nice happy people, the food again was of 5 star quality.
I would recommend the villa sanyanga and shangani yacht to anyone who is looking for a 5 star holiday in Phuket. The villa is perfect for big family reunions, friend get togethers etc. I'm getting married this month and in already planning to book this villa again but next time as a family trip.
Mama lily is the best hostess I've ever met, me and all my friends miss her and the rest of the villa team so much, we can't wait for the next trip. The majority of us were English lads so we had a full English brekkie laid out for us every morning, along with fresh Thai fruit platter, fresh coffee, juices and some Thai style breakfast snacks. You have to try a Thai omelette or you haven't lived.
I would also like to thank captain Richard and Jacque Pinell that responded to my enquiry immediately and ensured the booking process went so smoothly from day 1. I will remember this holiday for the rest of my life.

“Stunning Villa, brilliant team - loved our stay!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had the pleasure of staying for 2 nights at Villa Sanyanga for our friends Hen party (a classy affair!). We loved every single minute.

From the moment I enquired about the villa/prices/availability over email (with Jacquie) - the service was brilliant. And this continued throughout and culminated with our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the amazing Lily (villa manager/chef) and her faultless team. Anything we asked for was delivered instantly and with a smile.

On the first night we had a massive feast at the villa - the food was outstanding. Fresh, delicious Thai fare that will have you wanting to kidnap Lily and take her home with you (every meal was great). We decorated the gorgeous dining room, and the next morning all our mess was cleared away and the room returned to its sparkling best.

The rooms are all beautifully designed; very understated, clean and impressive. No garish Thai decor or elaborate detailing. As such the villa feels like a hotel - only more homely thanks to all the touches that the owners/team have thought of.

Lily arranged for massages at the villa for us, which were great. transfers and travel was also a breeze with The villa staff taking us wherever we wanted to go in the villa minibus and cars.

We hardly left the villa for the 3 days - why would we?! There is everything you need right there. And the view from the pool. Outstanding.

I can't recommend this villa highly enough. You will not only have a brilliant stay but any of the usual headaches involved with booking/planning a trip etc are eradicated due to the fabulous team.

Thank you Jacquie, Lily and team - we (all 18 of us!) will be back!

Thanks for your nice comments Clyde. Yes it's a shame, but I agree, Surin beach has got over-crowed, but there are lots of lovely deserted beaches to go to, and our driver and bus are at guests' disposal. Our driver Tongpoon knows all the good beaches to go to.
