“Great place for a family vacation”
Reviewed 25 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We were an extended family of 11, spanning 3 generations - and we had a very pleasant and cosy vacation at the Himmaphan. Helen, Lak and Nooi were always at hand to ensure that our needs were catered for. We enjoyed the facilities - the pool, the pool table, the entertainment room, but the ping pong table & bats probably need an upgrade. We loved that the beach and restaurants were just a short stroll from the villa. The chef cooked up some great meals - although it would have been better if they could have provided a list of options that we can pick from. The meal on the first day was excellent - we selected the most typical dishes we would normally order at a restaurant - green chicken curry, morning glory, fish cake - and it really set a high bar for our expectations. On the 2nd day, we ran out of ideas and Googled to search for additional dishes to sample and it was obvious the chef was not as familiar with these dishes and they were a little disappointing. They only cater for 1 meal a day, and we would have loved to have both lunch and dinner at the villa as it is such a lovely place and the food was great.

Security in the villa seemed a bit lax - there were a couple of times, where the staff had gone out to shop for groceries, and we had gone out to the beach. We were only able to lock the outer gate that leads into the garden; there did not seem to be any way to secure the villa, and we thought there was easy opportunity for someone to scale the wall and enter the unsecured house at their will. Even when we were all in the villas, the outer gate was always open and left unattended, which seemed to invite anyone to just stroll in (in fact twice, people did stroll in - once someone came in for a look and peered into the rooms; another was when a couple thought they had booked rooms at the villa and wandered straight into the living room). We had not incidents during our stay, but we would have greater peace of mind if we had felt the place was a little more secure (perhaps with 24-hr security instead of just the 12 hours overnight).

Overall, we had a lovely family holiday, and will not hesitate to recommend this for large groups of friends or family.

Dear Audrey, appreciate your detailed review. Please let me clarify couple of points. New ping pong table was ordered two weeks before your arrival and unluckily it arrived two days after your departure from the villa. It is sad you did not get a chance to try out our new table, but we have it now for all future guests.
As for the list of dishes we provide at the villa. We do have a menu with pictures at the villa, but as I was advised by the villa's staff, our new housekeeper Helen did not know about that since she only just started to work at the villa and did not offer you the menu from the beginning of your stay.
Thank you for mentioning about the constantly opened door at the villa, we are working on keeping it close at all times. Due to a big number of guests usually staying at the villa, it is a bit hard to reach for the door every time someone goes outside. But thanks again for letting me know!
It will be a pleasure to welcome you to the villa again!

“this villa made our vacation”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this property for 8 nights in June and though the weather was rainy, the whole group enjoyed our little vacation trip greatly. Since we could not go to the beach much we spend lots of time at the villa itself and were served like kings there ) girls at the villa (Luck, Nui) were all smiles and every day offered us fresh juices in the morning and smoothies in the afternoons. Not to mention wounderfull Thai cooking by the in-villa chef. It was an indeed memorable vacation and next time we are in Phuket, we will book Himmaphan place again.

“Wow...what a fantastic place!”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Wow…what a fantastic place! We had 10 men flying in from 6 different countries…all had high expectations but the villa and especially the service somehow managed to exceed them! Astuti and the whole staff do everything they can to make your stay as hospitable as possible. We had requested some special meals before arriving—from Thai food to spaghetti to salmon to the homemade chocolate cake—and enjoyed every one! After arriving, we wanted skewers in addition to the regular satay. After showing a picture of what we wanted, the cook made it exactly like we hoped! (I didn’t even mention how much the delicious the mango smoothies were!) The location near the beach was great as well, although we ended up spending far more of our time around the pool instead of at the beach. The rooms are quite spacious with comfortable beds. The pool and dining areas were great as well—perfect for the occasion. When we had one minor problem with one of the rooms’ a/c (which ended up being fixed), the staff went out of their way to help us make the situation as comfortable for us. Overall—an AMAZING 3 days. I only wish there was another excuse to go back in the near future!

“Wonderful Villa , perfect for groups a home away from home.”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We spent NY's here with 16 of our friends and couldn't have asked for a better choice of Villa. Wonderful location within walking distance of all your requirements. The rooms are all well set out and very comfortable. The best part of the Villa are the staff who will go out of their way to fulfill any requirements you desire from arranging transfers to negotiating boat trips with the locals. And Wow the food, delicious breakfast served up daily at a time of your choosing and on the evenings when the chef cooked dinnerfor us it was some of the best Thai food we experienced simply delicious . I would recommend this Villa to anyone looking to have a wonderful time in Phuket!
