The Villa is Perfect for family's and is in a quiet area of Phuket. Bang Tao beach is still not overcrowd and you can find a private place if you like.
We had such a fabulous time staying at this villa. It was beautiful inside and outside. The swimming pool is huge and amazing. Can dine inside or outside including up on the rooftop terrace. Added bonus was the each bedroom had its’ own ensuite and all beautifully decorated. Welcome package excellent and added bonus was the WiFi. John and Julia were fantastic in helping arrange airport transfer and island tour and shopping expedition. Beach so close by and loved the beach dining. Also recommend the restaurant bar across the road...quaint and great food...even villa delivery! Thoroughly recommend staying and chilling out at this very special villa. Thanks John and Maree
We had a wonderful family holiday staying at this villa. It is part of The Residence which is a resort/gated community of very private villas and a spa. The villa is luxurious in a tasteful, understated way. I would actually say the photographs do not do the villa justice.
The family loved having a private pool, especially as it is salt water. The area gets plenty sun morning and afternoon and the pool is a good temperature. There is also plenty shade in the table/seating area. We never used the roof top BBQ and seating area but it was tastefully done.
We are so glad we chose this over a hotel. As well as a private pool, it is so useful having the option of a kitchen (dishwasher, fridge freezer, cooker) and utility room (washing machine and tumble dryer).
The villa is in a great location. It was less than 10 min walk to Bang Tao beach. We often paid 100 baht for tired legs and a tuk tuk back in the evening. Although there are a lot of hotels, the beach is 6km long and it never felt busy, especially compared to some of the other Phuket beaches. There are options for a meal on the beach and some great beach massage huts. We were warned parts of the beach drop off quickly but we never had a problem with the kids playing in the water. The only thing we disliked were the jet skis but they are on every beach alas.
In the other direction, it is again a short walk (or 100 baht tuktuk) to some shops and restaurants including a Boots, Tesco Lotus, McDonalds, Taste restaurant (recommended) and a great cafe for breakfast called Worra. There are a couple of different night markets in this area. Opposite The Residence is a Thai restaurant called Bamboo - we really liked the Thai dishes in there and is was well priced.
Our only regret is we did not book in for two weeks. We would love to go back.
Great accommodation, great pool, everything you could want in a fantastic location. The nearest restaurant, Bamboo, has really good local food. We will return.
My family and I recently spent 10 nights at villa Tak Kae and loved it. The location is 10 min walk to the beach, we had extended family staying with us so we hired a minivan (the villa has a garage) to get around and meant we could change up our beach location each day (although our favourite spot is the one closest to the villa - bamboo restaurants and bars on the beach...very lazy and family friendly...). If you fancy something a little more lively there are a number of beach clubs on Bang Tao. 'Catch' is the nearest to the villa which serves a wicked cocktail in very plush surroundings!
The villa is a great size and with 4 adults and 3 children staying there was plenty of space to share or hideaway if we fancied some quiet time with a book...the large tv and surround system was a real bonus and the pool and gardens are amazing! The Villa has a very luxurious feel inside and out.
John the owner was very helpful and responsive if we had any questions and the villa was meticulously maintained with a daily maid service and full clean every couple of days. CBRE (the Villa management team) were also very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
Also a must is the Bamboo restaurant out the front of the villa complex. Great food, reasonably priced and lovely people!!
All in a fantastic stay and cant wait to go back!
