We enjoyed the most wonderful vacation at Baan Leelawadee. The villa is immaculate and luxurious with every facility one could wish for to make for a perfect holiday. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed enchanting views from this beach-front villa especially as we relaxed in the infinity pool.
The staff were attentive and super friendly without being intrusive. And the food…..! Out of this world delicious especially the curries and Thai salads.
We’ll be coming back for more.
Took a short break at this wonderful villa with family and friends. The location is peaceful and is right on a quiet beach. The entire villa is very well designed so that each bedroom is private. The interiors are opulent and stylishly finished. This is an inside-outside villa, with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors from the reception rooms and lots of exterior space, both shaded and in the sun. The pool is large and excellent for laps, or for relaxing, glass in hand, gazing across at Big Buddah across the bay.
While a villa like this is wonderful to stay in, it is the quality and humour of the Thai staff that brings it fully to life. We were especially lucky to have "Lucky", the maid who looked after us, overseen by "Ae" the manager, looking after anything we wanted to do, day trips, dinner recommendations, massage etc. She organised massage, manicure, pedicure for the ladies at the villa-fab! We did have an issue with our shower, which was blocked and the tray overflowed when we first used. In fairness, we mentioned to "Ae" and I never saw a maintenance guy, but it was fixed before nightfall.
Special word for "Joom" the in-house chef, who created breakfast daily. In the evening she really shone, our favourites from a wide food palette were her wing bean salad and Thai red curry with duck and lychees. She also has a wicked sense of humour!
What we love - Beautiful villa with a nice pool. The staffs are very friendly and attentive. We ordered in-house lunch once and the food was delicious albeit the portions were too big and the bill came out to double of what was quoted on email
The shortcomings - The third room was old. Beds were creaky and uncomfortable. Even the pillows look worned. The baby cot was really dirty (we wiped it down with a cloth and it was all black!). And they merely covered a wooden board with a thin comforter which looks old and dirty, with stains, for the bed. Couldn't believe that they provided that cot. We ended up not using it. Definitely not the standard of a luxury villa. I would expect this of a 3 star hotel.
Beach was a disappointment. There was a pile of rubbish right next to our villa
The most unfortunate is that we lost our SLR camera. We are very sure that we had not taken it out of the villa and had left it at the living room the whole time. While I am not accusing the staffs took it (no evidence whatsoever) I felt that the staffs should had at least given us fair warning to lock our rooms and not to leave valuables in the common areas, when we leave the villa. We had not done so as we felt that it was safe, like our own home. The staffs kept insisting that the villa is completely safe, as there are security guards but when I question Tim, the assistant manager if we should have locked the doors, she replied yes. The manager, Mike offered no empathy whatsoever. I wanted him to personally look at the CCTV but he kept insisting that his staffs had looked at it. He even defended to say that a set of keys have been given to us (implying it is our own fault that we didn't lock the doors and lost the camera). When I finally had the time to ask our traveling group if anyone received a set of keys, I found out that no, we didn't. A set of keys was not given to us. Enough said.
Fantastic staff, so very kind and helpful. Food cooked by Chef is amazing.
Great location. Stunning property. Paradise.
Can't wait to return!
