"Not sure how this gets rated so highly"
Garden rooms are really small and built with thin common walls between them. As a result we were woken by a screaming child on one night/morning and on another occasion we were kept awake by a group having drinks out the front of their room (which was basically our front door too). When we got home my wife discovered she had left her very expensive […] bikini hanging in the room. Despite a number of emails it is clear the staff pocketed it! (Not the first time this has been reported via this forum). If you can't ride a motorbike be prepared to walk or get fleeced by the local taxi mafia which set the prices they want and they all work in conjunction with each other. This part of Phuket is heavily populated by large groups of Chinese and Russian tourists so make plans well ahead to avoid missing opportunities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome Resort Villa"
Go for the villa, it's amazing and huge. So much detail and decorating has gone into this resort, it's the epitome of Thai style. There are massage places and restaurants on the same street and its a quick 10min walk to the beach. The service is also excellent. I went with my wife and daughter and it was perfect for us. Away from the nightlife with […] still enough to do to keep you entertained. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible stanky hotel"
We booked a room and it literally smelled like the sewage pipes had bursted. We complained but management didn't do much. Ruined our vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Absolutely beautiful would stay here time and time again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Real Thai Style - Loved IT"
The location is perfect and the staff are extremely friendly. Opt for the pool side room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a little oasis"
Beautiful facility, beautiful pool area, beautiful restaurant, beautiful staff. Very professional run, but a bit over priced as the rooms are very small. Staff friendliness and service is 10/10.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The PERFECT Spot"
This was my 5th stay at Sawasdee Village. I've been a guest of the Baray Villas as well as the Garden Suites multiples times and the service is always impeccable. The staff seems to genuinely delight in making guests feel at home and accommodated in every way possible. Inside the Village is a quiet, serene getaway all it's own world and just outside, […] a wonderful buzz of shopping, entertainment and outdoor activity. The location is wonderful as well, near Kata & Karon Beaches, a more family-oriented area. I can't wait to go back for trip #6!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice and relaxing environment"
Amazing experience, more beautiful than we expected and we will definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you are looking for a western style hotel then this is not for you , however sawasdee village is a great place to stay the staff are great and the restaurant is amazing . Although it is little dated it did not affect our opinion or enjoyment of our stay it's a pleasure to return after day out amongst the chaos of phuket .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
So happy that we stayed at a Baray Villa. We could not believe how wonderful the suite was, as well as the hotel grounds. It was like stepping into a magical land where you transform into king and/or queen. The villas were quite large, with huge beds, ornate designs, access to an amazing pool, and with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. […] Room service visits several times a day for cleaning, mosquito control, replenishing water, fruits, etc. Staff were very friendly and professional. Its location is pretty good, about 15 minutes walk to the beach (wasn't good for swimming in July). You can find shops, restaurants, etc. nearby. For booking tours, they recommended the agency right across the street, which we can now recommend in turn. Breakfast was included and of high quality, although item choice seemed limited. Like the rest of the hotel grounds, they created a divine atmosphere in the restaurant. Overall, if you want a very special holiday, Baray Villa does it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful garden and romantic hotel"
Really nice decor wasn't boring loved the wooden bathroom and patio, loved the garden little touches here and there the big cushion swings the pond and stepping stones towards the restaurant a very romantic, secluded feel. Buffet restaurant was nice, fruit eggs, toast sausages etc not big breakfast eater though it was good. The swimming pool is awesome […] pool bar and surrounded by garden. Quite close (10 min walk) to Kata beach which happens to be my favourite, small clean and beautiful less crowds too. Rooms are lovely giant bed with golden mosquito net nice wooden touches. The only negative thing i could say would be that because of the weather and all the garden there can be quite a few mozzies outside, and also the rooms are quite small and dim. Don't mind the lighting as it makes it more romantic but I suggest only staying here for those short trips as there isn't much room to store things and leave things not much of a kitchen just not suited for longer stays which isn't a problem but just something to consider when booking. I was there for two weeks only spent a few nights there and moved to a more basic functional hotel which was perfect. Other than that I would definitely come back.

It is nice, green and quiet upon entry...kind of like a little village, hidden away. The rooms are a little small but comfortable. The pool is nice, with a small swim-up bar and the hotel wasn't very busy when we were staying there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Kata"
Very nice hotel with very helpful friendly staff, always happy to help with any request, although a bit of a walk to the beach they did provide transport on the hour but it was close enough to walk, shops and restaurants close, breakfast had something for everyone, pool was good but not deep and not a lot room around the edge. I would not hesitate to […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Relaxing, kata beach great,staff wonderful ab thai people just so helpful. Definately recommend hiring a scooter see so much more. The villa in Sawasdee just stunning will stay next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a tranquil garden setting."
The Baray Villas are superb. Pure indulgence and very private. Staff are friendly and service is excellent though having a permanent staff member at the bar in the swimming pool would reduce wait time for ordering a drink.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Thai inspired"
Our two night stay at Sawasdee was heaven. From the moment we walked through the entrance we could see that we had made the perfect choice. The hotel is well secluded from the busy street. The lush surroundings throughout the hotel were very welcome. Every step you take you find beautiful Thai statues fountains, bells and lots of lounging areas. The […] pool was especially inviting with lots of day beds. Pool bar was a bonus. Staff were all very helpful. I wish we had stayed a few days longer. The sitting area outside our room was a great place to sit with friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Villas worth upgrading - beautifull mini palace. Awesome restourant, magical at night on the restourant veranda. Love the lemongrass smell throughout the property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to relax and chill"
Staff were helpful, villas were amazing, pools were relaxing. A great place to just spend your time within the village compound. not more then 10 minutes walk to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Place close to everything"
the best experience of my life so close to everything but so secluded and quiet when in your own paradise behind the entrance of the hotel is a tranquil serene getaway for anyoneGenuine Expedia guest review

Unique resort staff where great and we enjoyed our stay, rooms where small only due to the size of the massive bed and rooms where dark but we would stay againGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little piece of paradise for such a great price!"
What's to say about this hotel, my husband and I couldn't faultier a single thing. Staff.. amazing. facilities...amazing. surrounds out of this world. nothing was too much for the staff and the little rose petals on our bed made it feel like a honeymoon of my dreams. Thank you Sawasdee, thank you so much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel away 20 mins away from Patong"
This is my 5th trip to this hotel and will keep coming back. Great authentic Thai experience as soon as you enter the Village along with the restaurant. Small pool but great for meeting new people. Sawasdee Village really not recommended for children. If you have a chance try and spend a night at the Barray Villas. Expensive but worth every cent. This […] recent trip we were presented with a bottle of Red wine on a silver platter with 2 wine glasses to welcome us back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel that is not just a concrete block."
from the walk into the hotel from the street the hotel screams Thailand. Tropical plants, buddas and buildings. Staff were excellent, breakfast was very good with a great selection and dinning room beautiful. enjoyed the pool and pool bar with 2 for 1 drinks during happy hour. All in all loved the place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My favourite hotel"
By far, my favourite hotel on our trip, what a lovely feeling you get walking into the grounds of the hotel, absolutely beautiful. The staff were fab, rooms were lovely and the beds were huge, they provided water everyday along with mosquito repellent & tiger balm which I thought was very thoughtful. Very quiet and relaxed few days here, would love […] to go back, didn't realise that they had a hotel in Krabi otherwise we'd have booked into that too. x Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful boutique hotel on a quiet street ."
We loved our stay at Sawadee The staff were always available to accommodate our every requests. The quiet and beauty of this hotel provided the romance and comfort that we wanted for a perfect holiday. The Kata Beach was only a short walk away.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just got back yesterday, what a fantastic experience. The hotel is set in a beautifully designed tropical oasis. The traditional decor has been thoughtfully put together. If you are thinking of staying here please do. The staff are the best I've every experienced , the service is second to none. I was unwell while I was visiting (nothing relating to […] the hotel) one of the reception staff bought me some flowers and a get well card, who does that these days? Almost everyone we met asked how I was feeling. The rooms are ample, the beds enormous and comfy. we slept very well as the rooms are dark and it's very quiet at the Sawasdee Village, no traffic noise. Blissful. Breakfast is buffet style and everyone's taste appears to have been catered for, there is a lot of choice. One thing to point out, don't take beach towels with you. You are given a beach bag and towels, which are replaced daily. How good is that? Go, you'll love it Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, tranquil hotel"
We really enjoyed staying here as it is very beautiful, almost magical surroundings and is individual not massive resort style. The restaurant has excellent food, bed very comfortable and bathroom facilities very good. Only disappointing thing was it does not have beach views and is not really near the beach. It is a short walk to the beach even though […] there is a shuttle bus. The room although lovely may be a little small ( typical room we stayed in for our price range) for a longer stay or if you wish to spend time in the room. There are more luxurious villas available. If you want quiet, peaceful, solitude,nice pool, not crowded and top quality food then this hotel is a good choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in the Baray Villas and it was stunning. Our 4am arrival was treated no differently than any other by the kind hotel staff. She even checked with us what kind of fruit we like and for the remainder of our stay we had fresh banana and passion fruit every day. The staff are nice and take care of you. The villa was comfortable and spacious as […] we recovered from our 30 hour journey and 14 hour time difference. Directly across the road from some great little restaurants, and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Free shuttle to the beach during the day on the hour which was good to use in the heat. At night we walked down to the main strip to explore more. I liked this location more than some of the more central hotels due to the lack of noise. Swimming in the pool was tranquil with the beautiful waterfall in the background. Would definitely go back, it was hard to leave and we wish we had longer after our 6 nights there.

"Very romantic and great location"
Me and my fiance spent 13 days in the Sawasdee village. I got engaged in the hotel's garden area, it was so romantic. Very nice and exotic hotel. The room was good too. Extremely large bed, every day cleaning+get new towels and sheets if you want to. Beautiful and helpful staff and very good buffet breakfast. The all hotel looks like an amazing wonderland. […] Only I think more storage needs in the room, we hardly could put away our staff from our suitcases+ what we bought in the market over there. + maybe need some upgrading in the bathroom, make it a bit more modern. But other than that I highly recommend to go there. It is amazing!:) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Most perfect Thai experience & Excellent staff!"
Me and my partner absolutely LOVED IT there! All the staff, either at the bar, the kitchen, or cleaning, everyone was so nice and hospitable towards us. Our room was always maintained and cleaned daily which made it very easy for us and comfortable. The restaurant staff are very friendly, they even surprised me with a special Birthday cake as I celebrated […] my birthday there in Phuket! Also waking up every morning to free breakfast was awesome. The food and drinks were amasing and affordable! The whole resort is very cultural and peaceful and is definitely the perfect place to getaway. I was blown away by how beautiful the surroundings are, very elegant and sophisticated. It's also very close to tour agencies, clothes markets, restaurants, massages, laundry and of course the beach! It is just so convenient. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sawasdee Village!! 10/10!!

"great hotel for couples and families"
it was our honeymoon, everything with more than great, we really enjoy itGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at Sawasdee Village for 9 nights and absolutely loved every minute. Once you walk through the entrance it's like walking into another world. The staff were very polite , the food in both restaurants great, the pool was never crowded and had a bar where you could get the drink without getting out of water. The rooms felt a bit small but that's […] because the bed was enormous and with a mosquito net. I would not recommend to families but a perfect retreat for couples in most romantic of surroundings. Highly recommend... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sawasdee Village - we loved it"
This was my second stay at Sawasdee Village and it was fantastic. The gardens, pool area and staff are impeccable. The pool may be smaller than other hotels, but it was never too crowded. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and room service/pool side meals also good. The only negative I could offer would be the rooms need some updating/repairs as some […] sections of floor are well worn in the bathrooms and some room features need replacing. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay and I hope to return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
will be back one day for sure.thankyou!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolute bliss. Incredible staff, great breakfast, amazing comfortable bed, beautiful gardens and pool... I could go on. We wish it wasn't in Phuket which we found very touristy and resort-like, but this offered a sanctuary from that and made the stay what it was.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Australians in Phuket"
Sawasdee was like an oasis the moment we walked in. Truly lovely service every moment of our stay. Beautiful views. The serene sound of water flowing. The tranquillity of lush green and a beautiful room were all highly recommended. The pool was idyllic to see and magnificent to be in. I loved the swim up bar!

"Great place for couples and families"
great place to get away from the clamor of Phuket. Rooms are a tad small but work very well. Great bathroom and shower. Excellent included breakfast. Pool is outstanding,very peaceful and quiet. Close to Kata beach and all shopping and nightlife.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely traditional Thai hotel and great staff"
Firstly the staff are amazing and cannot do enough to help. The hotel is set about 10 min walk from Kata beach and there is an hourly bus to and from the beach but it is easily walkable. The hotel is based on traditional Thai and not modern. The rooms are dark to keep cool. There is air con, TV, computer in the rooms. Also shampoo, conditioner, shower […] get, toothbrush and paste, bug spray (mozzies!), pool towels. The beds were too hard for my liking and also the the beds had thin duvets - I would've preferred sheets and a blanket but it was OK (I'm sure if I'd asked they would've changed this for me. The rooms also have a mozzie net which they put over each night, but we decided after the first night that you are more likely to be bitten sitting by the pool than in the room, wear mozzie spray at all times. The hotel has one good size pool with water fountains and jacuzzi effect and good for swimming laps. There is also a small pool for kids. The hotel is fairly small so there are always beds available around the pool. There is a pool bar with snacks. The hotel has two restaurants, one is traditional Thai and the other is western and snacks. Both were excellent although they use a curry based sauce on all the Thai food - even when it says oyster sauce, so if you don't like curry beware and order sweet and sour or stick to western food). There is a Spa but we didn't use it. On the whole a great time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
