We all had a fantastic stay at Villa Sawadee, The Villa is situated in a great spot nestled in its own jungle a very peaceful retreat after a day at the Beach or a night out in Patong.
5 minutes drive to nearest beach every where on the Island we found easily accessible, if you're not confident driving yourself Taxis seemed plentiful and a guide for longer trips can be organised by Alain.
The Villa was very spacious and comfortable, we shared with friends and we didn't feel on top of each other, there is one Safe deposit box located in one of the 3 double rooms.
A washing machine is available although we left a few clothes in the laundry basket and if by magic they turned up clean and pressed the next day. The staff are excellent and very discreet, you rarely see or hear them.
One great touch was the water machine that was always replenished, saved all them trips to a store for countless bottles of water, a nice display of fresh prepared fruit was waiting for us on arrival. We didn't take advantage of the in house catering as there was a vast choice of places to eat at very reasonable prices.
Most mornings for myself started with some exercise followed by a quick shower in the outside shower room and a nice dip in the lovely Pool with a nice fruit juice resting on the edge of the Pool and the occasional bottle of Champagne on the evening listening to the sounds of the critters from the surrounding jungle.
Alain is a great host, he met us from the Airport we had a vast amount of luggage as I took all my Kitesurfing equipment, we all fitted nicely in his Pickup and took us directly down to the local Beach for a meal, which after a long flight was quite refreshing and we quickly got into the swing of the local life, after a nice meal and drink Alain took us via a few local attractions showing us where best to exchange currency and get provisions. The next morning after a decent nights sleep and a dip in the pool, I was pleasantly relaxed with no signs of jet lag.
We all would hope to return again, if heaven is half as good as this I will die a happy man, and thank you Alain for building this lovely home.
