“Luxury hillside villa with amazing staff”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We have just returned from Villa Sanyanga after an 11 day holiday with 4 families. We could not have booked a better place. We were looked after so well by Lily and staff with incredible food that children and adults alike could not fault. All the staff were so helpful, booking trips, ferrying us around the island, ordering masseuses to come to the villa, and essentially making our holiday as stress free and enjoyable as possible. We would certainly love to visit again - it was a perfect holiday.

“Wonderful Thai holiday and hospitality”
Reviewed 15 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A group of 17 of us (8 adults, 9 children aged 5 to 12) have just returned from 11 days at Villa Sanyanga in Surin, Phuket. The booking process through Jacquie was seamless - Jacquie could not have been more helpful and then Lily and the team looked after us all so well while we were there. Nothing was too much trouble - they booked outings and excursions for us, they recommended good places to go, Jone drive us all around the island, they were wonderful with our children and THE FOOD!! We ate like kings and at a very reasonable cost. Thank you so much Lily, Jone, Jit, Beeou and Jeffery! The villa itself was spacious and well kept. The only one thing was that the outside area was a bit of a squash when we were all around the pool but this did not happen often and given we did lots of outings / time at the beach, it was not a problem. Overall, a wonderful holiday and the most amazing, caring, kind and willing staff! Thank you Villa Sanyanga!

“Amazing family friendly villa and incredible food.”
Reviewed 12 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We have just got back from 10 glorious days at Villa Sanyanga with a group of 4 families and certainly none of us wanted to leave. The villa is spacious with all the facilities we could have wanted. The staff were all amazingly friendly, helpful and accommodating and they were super brilliant in the face of a medical drama too. Lily and her team totally spoilt us with mouth watering food which was loved by all the children and adults alike. They were so quick and helpful too in arranging trips, massages, manicures, transport etc. Likewise, Jacquie was incredibly helpful in planning our stay, booking us onto the most magical boat trip and always very prompt and clear in her replies to our many questions! There is so much to do and the location is great. We would most definitely book again. Thank you Villa Sanyanga!

“Simply perfect”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Already the second time we spent as group of ten friends some days in the villa Sanyanga. Once more, Jacquie organized everything perfect. The mansion Sanyanga is just wonderful. There are huge and fine rooms, a broad outdoor area, a pavilion with a table, a cool pool with a pool-bar and a fantastic view.
To listen everywhere the preferred music, you just to have connect your mobile to the Sonos device. Simple and easy. The best thing with the villa is the friendly and attentive personnel, in front of all Lily, of course. We chose the villa again, because Lily take care, that the time will become unforgettable. She prepared, together with her team, perfect meals for us. She took care of our needs and had ideas and solutions for everything. The days in the villa Sanyanga will stay best in our mind and for sure, we'll come back again!

“AMAZING, EXCELLENT, THE BEST!!!!”
Reviewed 9 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

From my initial communication with Jacquille my experience was first class. We travel internationally multiple times a year and Sanyanga was Amazing from our pick up from the airport by Joan to our departure. Lily is the BEST!!! The house is great and the staff is what makes this a class act. We were treated like royalty. We had the opportunity to use the Yacht and it was a trip of a lifetime. Again the staff is first class and attends to your every need. We hope to come back to Phuket specifically to spend time with Lily and the staff and enjoy a relaxing holiday. She gave us many cooking lessons and we never went out to eat as we LOVED our daily prepared meals. Thank you for the opportunity. EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY.

Thank you very much for these kind words. I and the staff are all very happy to hear you enjoyed your holiday so much, and also that you enjoyed your boat cruise on one of the company boats. Hard not to enjoy these cruises, everybody loves them! The staff enjoyed having you in the villa and we all look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Sanyanga some time in the future.

“Best Thailand Experience”
Reviewed 17 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

A group of us stays in this villa each November for a fitness retreat and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else. The staff, lead by Lili, is amazing. They provide world class service and care for us like family. They help us get around the town, with the help of Joan the driver, and are willing to find us anything we need to make our stay more comfortable. The food is really good and is representative of typical Thai cuisine. I highly recommend renting this villa for your next group or family visit.

“Amazing villa - perfect for family reunion”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We spent amazing 10 days for a 14-people family reunion.

Everything went very smoothly and Lily, Jon, Jeffrey and the rest of the team were perfect. We enjoyed the food too much, not good for our new year resolution! And Jon was a perfect driver. When we went on our boat trip, we could see the difference with a very average local driver who came to pick us up…

Well not much to add. Amazing villa / view / place!

Thank you very much for this review. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your reunion in Villa Sanyanga. Thank you for your kind comments about the staff and especially about Jon our driver, we are very lucky to have her. The general standard of driving in Thailand is very low (understatement!) but she has experience from driving in Hong Kong and USA, and she is an extremely good and careful driver. Apart from that, she is a very nice person and speaks three languages!
