Our stay in Villa Sanyanga was simply: Awesome!!! The Villa itself was magnificent, spacious, fabulous! I honestly do not have the words to express my gratitude to Lily and her staff. They went out of their way to fulfill even our slightest and smallest requests, which made the stay even more amazing than it already was. The food that was prepared by Lily was 7-star! A big big thank you from all of us to Team Sanyanga.
Thank you so much to chef Lily and staff for helping to create an unforgettable birthday weekend at the beautiful Sanyanga villa. The villa itself is stunning, with great views and facilities, and fabulous catering and service to meet our every request. We all had a wonderful time, thanks.
My only complaint was about the misleading /wrong information from villaz.net. In future I would book directly with you as this was in no way your fault and staff were so helpful and accommodating.
Villa Sanyanga far exceeded all of my expectations. It looks beautiful online, but the photos hardly do it justice. Each room and all of the outdoor spaces are so immaculate, luxurious, and relaxing. We traveled with a group of 11 adults and 2 children and there was more than enough space for everyone to have their own private little escape. The villa is superb.
Now on to the most important aspect of Villa Sanyanga, the staff. Lily, villa manager and chef, was the sweetest person I have ever known. She was warm, knowledgable, and incredible talented. We ate our way through 4 countries in SE Asia, and NOTHING compared to the food prepared by Lily. She is truly incredible, and you would be doing yourself a disservice to not indulge in her magical dishes and to have a conversation or two with her. She truly exudes a sense of calm and happiness that is infectious. Jone, the driver, was also amazing. She was reliable, knowledgable about the area, and so so kind. Several times, she stopped on the side of the road just to share her favorite street foods with us- so awesome! Jacquie, the owner, was always very responsive and accommodating. I honestly don't even know how the woman sleeps- she responded to questions and inquiries, across time zones, with the upmost timeliness. Really a class act.
A few logistics notes that I are worth noting- Lily buys and prepares all of the meals at cost. No joke. Everyone ate breakfast, fruits, afternoon snacks, and dinner almost every day and the $20 US dollars we gave to Lily on the first day covered not only all of the food, but all of the gas for the van too (with change that Lily gave back on the last day!).
All in all, you will not regret a stay on this immaculate villa. The benefits far outweigh the cost of this place and, in my opinion, it is truly a steal. Please feel free to contact me privately for any more details or photos. I am happy to share any and everything I can for this beautiful place, and for sweet Lily.
This is my second time staying at Villa Sanyanga with the kindest hostess Lily / Nang / Jeffrey and ever reliable Jone.
My last visit was 3 years ago and I must say the Villa is looking better than ever, a testament to the attention and effort that the owners and staff take in looking after their villa. Sonos speakers, Smart TV, and full coffee machine were nice extra touches to the excellent food and housekeeping.
This time round, I used the villa for a retreat and we were mostly at the Villa. The TV room was great for lounging, presentations and discussion. Lily was able to satisfy the demands of foodies with her variations of american breakfasts, thai food and outdoor bbq.
Another fantastic experience and our friends and I will be regular visitors.
My extended family of fifteen needed a location that would cater for our three generations, aged from 18 months to a more generous and wise age (no specific number necessary!) The villa had the bedrooms, the space and the outdoor area that was ideal for all of us to gather together for the first time in two years for just over a week and have an enjoyable time. Apart from the amazing view and the luxurious facilities it was the staff that made the time we had there outstanding. Lily, Jone, Jeffery, Mon and Nang went above and beyond what we expected. Their beautiful hospitality, generosity and smiling faces were a highlight. The food was delicious, the grandchildren loved it (and the adults) and having the mini bus available with Jone to drive us around was invaluable. We would highly recommend anyone stay at the villa, you won't be disappointed.
