I really enjoyed my vacation at the Baan Wanicha B&B in October
2019. Spacious and super clean room with a large bed. Very friendly and competent staff. They have a perfect in house laundry service. (they saved my new white shirt after a mess up from my side, thank you very much!)
They will put up the effort to make special requests possible. (Ice baths in the whirlpool, forming a mouth guard for sports)
And of course, what I enjoyed most was the every day breakfast buffet, which I doubt you would get anywhere else in Phuket.
Baan Wanicha lays a bit out of the the usual tourist track, which we found to be a very nice change from the beach areas of the coast of Phuket. The place is only 5 rooms, so the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. We had a great time relaxing at the pool and in our big room, and then go sightseeing in the near town and area.
At a first glance Baan Wanicha is not very different from other upper end hotels - it has 5 large rooms, a pool and a breakfast-area. At a closer look its quite different, as the QUALITY is superbe, and in our experience quite special. First of all is the level of service and attentiveness like nothing we did ever experience, not even at the utmost high end resorts. The couple that run this place - Jörg and Kate - seems to know exactly what they are doing. We found them to be very open and forthcoming and to any questions we had! Also the place is run with a sense of details, there is little a demanding costumer can possibly miss here.
You do need wheels to get arund, we recommend you rent a scooter. We rented from Jörg, and in 2 minutes we had a good scooter quite cheap!
Wanicha has no real restaurant, but has good suggestions to nearby places, even with free transfers.
The breakfast at Wanicha is simply great with homemade bread, fresh juices, etc!
Last thing: We often use booking.com, but found it even more easy and also a bit cheaper to book directly and Wanichas own site.
My husband and I have travelled extensively and we both agreed that this was our favourite accommodation by far. We spent a wonderful week at Baan Wanicha and were so impressed by our suite and the service provided (especially the breakfast buffet!). Jurg was a friendly and knowledgeable host who went out of his way to ensure we were nothing but content around the clock.
If you want to experience first-class service and peaceful surrounds, I cannot recommend this accommodation more highly.
There are millions of hotels in Phuket to choose from so it is difficult to decide. I wanted something different, an authentic but luxurious however affordable and not too close from the crowd/noise of some of the cities in Phuket. Baan Wanicha Resort seemed to match my criteria and comments about this property on every booking sites where amazing so i booked it. We stayed 2 nights in the hotel and i certainly said to myself i will return again! The owner came to pick us up at the airport such a kind person. He showed us around the area and assisted us with organising great activities during our stay. The hotel is beautiful, from the fantastic pool to our well decorated room, Breakfast is great and location of the hotel is fantastic! I mean wow it was paradise!
My Second visit to this excellent B&B. Jurg collected my friend and I from the airport. A short journey takes you to an amazing property in a small residential area of Phuket. Close to shops, beaches and restaurants we felt immediately at home. We were greeted by lovely staff and a cool drink. Easy check in and off to our room. The beautifully decorated rooms are situated around a pool and lush grounds. As I had been before I felt immediately at home and settled around the pool for the afternoon. We had arranged in advance for a meal to be cooked in the evening as we had a long journey from the UK. Jurg and his wife provided us with a delicious Thai menu with many courses. We were asked what time we would like breakfast to be prepared the following morning and what our plans were for the day. There is motorbike hire and bicycles available at the property. We decided a day at the beach was a good way to start our holiday. Included in the price of the room is a lift to and return to local beaches. The next day we were greeted with the most amazing breakfast all set out on the garden patio. The selection is amazing fresh local fruit, cheese, home made breads and pasties, hams, salmon and also cooked breakfast made to order. I can honestly say no hotel has such a wonderful selection. We spent time at the beach and also around the beautiful pool whilst staying for 4 nights. The whole experience is amazing so relaxing all everyone is super friendly. Nothing is too much bother and both Jurg and his wife have a wealth of information about the area and trips that can be arranged from the B&B. I have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels in Thailand over many years but can honestly say this is the most amazing find I have had in Thailand. Thank you both for your hospitality and see you next year.
