"Very good place"
We are starting a year long trip, so this was a splurge for our new budget but it was well worth it. Lush, peaceful grounds with a great pool. The room was very clean and they provided us with everything we needed, 4 bottles of water per day, mosquito repellant, turn down service with a treat. The breakfast included is fantastic and make sure to visit […] the restaurant for dinner as well. Definitely recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"10/10 staff. Extremely cool hotel."
The staff here are absolutely awesome. Helped with everything from baggage to booking tours, recommendations, etc. Honestly some of the friendliest and most helpful staff I have met in my never ending travels. We stayed one night in a regular room then upgraded to a villa. IF you can afford to do so, do not hesitate. The regular rooms are good value […] for the hotel, but the villas are incredible. Being able to enter the pool from your living room was not bad at all. Both pools are great at the resort, but the private villa pool is unreal. We got free 1.5hr spa treatments for two or a free dinner for two for each night at the villa. Very very cool resort. The only thing bad I can say is that the surrounding area is a little seedy, but it is Phuket/Thailand. Kata Beach itself is nice, but you do have to walk- it isn't far but the walk isn't very nice. The restaurant is decent, and it is beautiful, but the food quality isn't up to par with what I would expect from such a pretty place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oasis in Phuket"
This was a nice oasis in the middle of Phuket in high season. The grounds were beautiful and lush...the pool was nicely shaded. The rooms were a bit dated, but comfortable...I would recommend this hotel and suggest the cooking class (it was great!)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"YOU WILL LOVE IT HERE!!!"
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon to complete our honeymoon in Thailand. Service was prompt and went above and beyond, the complimentary breakfast buffet exceeded expectations. The hotel itself is a calming and peaceful oasis--a complete retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and intense crowds of Patong. The room was beautifully […] detailed and spacious and was always clean and stocked as housekeeping came twice a day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay at the BEAUTIFUL Sawasdee!!!"
All I have to say about this hotel is wow. The pictures on this website do not do it justice! I've been a world traveler my entire life and this is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in! From the outside it is still a hidden gem, very unassuming to any person walking by. But once you pass the front fountain you enter the jungle. Beautiful […] plants everywhere. Bowls of water and flowers line the walk ways. Every square inch of this place was absolutely beautiful. The pool is exquisite with a really cool swim up bar. The location is PERFECT. quite touristy but if you get out to the beach or go on adventures (we booked everything from one of the places across the way) then it really doesn't bother you much. Everyone in the area is so nice and helpful. But this hotel... Wow. One of the top hotels for me. Makos each room has a little patio sitting area that's got nice privacy. Such beautiful rooms no matter which one you get! Stay at this hotel for a truly Thai truly unique experience. I went with my cousin/travel partner but it would be such a ROMANTIC hotel too.

"Nice hotel, staff & location, rooms need a refresh"
Was there for a short couple vacations. Hotel staff was very nice and attentive. Pool, bar and restaurant was nicely decorated with good services and food. Used he shuttle to the beach and it was nice and organized. Walk to the beach is also only 10 minutes or so along shops which is interesting to look at. The room that we stayed in was older and not […] particularly comfortable. Sink and showers were old, toilet did not flush well and did not smell nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the room and hotel overall. This was our most expensive hotel on our recent trip and it met all our expectations. Massages were great as well. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were slightly above average. Room service duck was great. Loved the showers and pool. (We stayed in the cheaper rooms)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel atmosphere was incredible for sure! I've never seen anything like it. There's a lot of water throughout which attracts mosquitos, but there's a net around the bed and they prepare your room before you get in at night, even spraying it down for mosquitoes that might have gotten into the area. The location for this area along the beach was just […] fine. The only thing I would say is that the beach had a lot more trash than I expected. Also there is a central Gulch that comes through the city that stinks incredibly bad. This Gulch empties out on to that beach causing the smell during the heat that really was unexpected and I didn't see mentioned any reviews. I would probably opt to stay along one of the other 2 beaches in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is such a beustiful little hotel we stayed in garden deluxe and then upgraded to baray villa. The breakfast is fantastic and gives you plenty to choose from. This was our second stay here and the street the hotel is on has really been developed in the past 2 years. We were able to visit the spa which was amazing too!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel with beautiful garden."
The swimming pool here was a highlight. The garden is made to look like an exotic escape, and makes you feel like you're in one. Overall our experience was excellent. The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and service great. However, I would like to clear up something that was misleading to us. All the photos we saw while booking, were of the […] villas- which are exceptional- but more expensive. We had a regular room, which was very nice and clean, but tight. But we were satisfied.

"Wonderful Highly recommend"
Beautiful facility & grounds. Disney could not have done a better job. It is exquisite. The regular ros are not big but VERY well appointed., especially if you like teak wood. There's even a rain shower head in the skylighted shower . You will not believe your eyes ss you look around, If you can afford one of the villas, you will never forget this place. Staff […] are very pleasant & professional and speak English well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous hotel with beautiful rooms and great staff!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has a very nice theme. However the mosquitoes in this hotel can get pretty annoying.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was a bit smaller than I had anticipated, but other than that, everything else was great. Breakfast was really nice, pool/pool bar was nice and travel agent for booking trips was right across from the entrance of the hotel. All in all, very nice!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Best of the best."
Unbelievable magical, best hotel in Phuket, guaranteed. The staff is so nice, the garden is fantastic, the villa is beyond imagination. So far my best hotel experience. For me is a six star hotel. They watching for every little details to make your stay unforgettable. Must try.Genuine Expedia guest review
The client facing reps were very good. The hotel feels a little like Thai Disneyland with waterfalls and rivers everywhere. It makes it feel like a wonderland for man and mosquito alike. The rooms were quite small for the price point. We had to coordinate with mgmt on a couple issues which was our only real disappointment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Thai Style, quite away from the beach since hotel offers a free shuttle every hour it wouldn't any problem. Quite and silent place, has wonderful restaurant. I recommend to couples.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing Thai Style Boutique Gem"
Great boutique hotel that provides an oasis of calm in amazing Thai style decoration. Awesome pool that felt like swimming at Ankor. Small but very clean and comfortable rooms. Great breakfasts in a cool looking Thai style decorated restaurant. Plenty of greenery around the hotel. Definitely one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Thailand and a […] truly unique Thai experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Oasis in Kata,Phuket"
The food was outstanding in the Thai restaurant. Plenty of options at the breakfast. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Rooms well appointed and clean.

Sawasdee village is a place you can escape to from the business of the cities and beaches. Overall I feel lucky to have stayed there!Genuine Expedia guest review
We absolutely loved the Sawasdee! The staff is extremely helpful and allowed me to use their office to print our continuing travel arrangements, coordinated our shuttle service on various occasions, and always courteous. The breakfast was wonderful with a great assortment! The rooms are tight and don't have much storage space so I recommend minimal […] luggage. However, they are extremely beautiful and offer true romance! The bathrooms are a dark teak wood with rain showers and a small bench designed for two. The TV double as a computer, in case you don't have your personal laptop... The resort overall is wonderful and has great Thai influence throughout!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Shame on you if you haven't been here yet!!!"
Don't wonder why this is the #1 ranked place to stay in Kata & surrounding areas - get here and see for yourself! The staff don't greet you just as a customer - they treat you as friends! Though amidst a pleasant buzz of shopping & nightlife, 15 steps into Sawasdee Village and you are in complete serenity, where every corner is tended to and aesthetically […] tailored to the local culture but with advanced amenities that will shock you! I've stayed here multiple times and it's more wonderful each time...and the Baray Villas are out of this world! This is the one place that pictures just don't do justice :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would do it again"
We really enjoyed our stay at Sawasdee Village. The room was small as explained in other reviews but very comfortable. The service was above average by far. The friendly staff were always there to assist. If there was one thing negative about our stay it would have been the smell that the shower would produce. But not that bad, really. All in all this […] was money well spent and worth every penny. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was traveling with a girlfriend of mine and we were both delighted with the exotic feel within the walls of the Sawasdee Village resort. We found the pool, grounds and Deluxe Garden Villas to be very authentic Thai. This resort is definitely geared towards romance and for couples but we still enjoyed the amenities and funky vibe of the landscape and […] pool. Our room was very comfortable and the rain head shower was a welcome end to each day. The breakfast buffet had a extensive selection of breakfast foods and they made the best coffee I tasted in two weeks. There were a few problems communicating in English with the hotel staff but it always worked out. I was surprised that a hotel of this caliber did not have a concierge to assist with booking treks. Sawasdee did send us across the street to a tour operator who was able to make all of our arrangements. Aside from the tour booking they were very accommodating. We had an early check out and the hotel arranged our car to the airport and packed us a box breakfast since we were not able to go to the breakfast buffet. This was done at their suggestion.

"We loved our stay at Sawasdee Village"
We loved our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The décor was beautiful and we found the hotel very romantic. It was just what we were looking for on our getaway. We have no complaints at all. For those going to Thailand for the first time, make sure you rent a motorcycle/scooter and ride up and down the coastline. Wow, that was a […] blast! The beaches are great as everyone knows. Make sure you go to the Phuket night market! We visited Thailand during the "off" season in June and absolutely loved it, the "off" season might be the best time to go! We also spent some time in peaceful Krabi...highly recommended!!

"Peaceful Private Setting"
This little resort is a photographer’s dream. The rooms are quaint. The pool and surrounding grounds are quite attractive. If you are looking for a quiet little getaway, this is the resort. I found it, perhaps, too quiet, with nearly no one around. We were there during the holiday season. The resort is just walking distance to shops, restaurants and […] the beach. If you are looking for quietly attractive, this is the place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Heaven on earth"
This place truly is amazing. Paradise doesn't even do it justice. The baray villa we stayed in doesn't even have words to describe it. It is so nice that we lost $1200 on a different hotel that we ate so we could stay here longer. It is truly a place that dreams are made of. A staff that is so helpful, a resort that is so beautiful, a king size bed […] that is like two kings put together it is so big. We absolutely loved every moment here. We will return for sure and send anyone we know here. Well worth the extra to stay in the pool villa, such an experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Can't WAIT to go back!"
I simply cannot say enough about Sawsdee Village! This resort is in an ideal spot for all the shopping a girl could want, the romance of a beautiful beach and a buzz of nightlife, but 20 steps inside and the outside noise completely disappears into the tranquil serenity of plants, pool and Thai art. The food is absolutely delicious and healthy (Though […] indulgences are still available of course :)) and the cooking classes are so much fun & and absolute must! The swim-up bar is a very nice touch and the soothing music played outside just adds to the peace. The staff was relentless in their efforts to make us feel welcome and enjoy our stay and seemed to really ENJOY when they knew we were having such a good time. The amenities were fantastic - wonderful TV & Internet. THIS WAS, LITERALLY, BETTER THAN ALL OF THE OVERPRICED, PRETENTIOUS RESORTS WE'VE STAYED AT ELSEWHERE! WE CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN AND RELAX AGAIN IN A FEW MONTHS! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed for five days and if we go back I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The hotel is absolutely beautiful with a jungle type feel. There is a great pool and the restaurant serves good food. The staff was wonderful! They made sure we had everything we needed. We went to the spa and that was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend you going […] for a service or two. The prices were extremely reasonable and the services were wonderful! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad at all"
Only thing is twin beds are too close together for 2 dudes traveling together. Also a little far away from Patong beach, (where all the action is.) Other than that, this hotel is great .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel! Great for couples!"
The traditional Thai design and landscaping of this hotel is absolutely beautiful and it is a quiet environment. When we return to Thailand we will definitely stay at Sawasdee Village again. All of the hotel employees from those at the reception desk to the housekeepers gave us excellent, attentive service. There is a great breakfast buffet with a variety […] of hot and cold items and they prepare omelets to order. The Baray Spa is top rated for a reason! Gorgeous decor and the best spa experience I have ever had. They had a special when we were there and I got 30 minutes of the steam room, a 1 hour massage, and a 1 hour facial for 3100 BHT! It was incredible! I agree with other reviewers that the rooms are a bit small but considering we weren't in the room much it wasn't a problem. There was a small table and bench outside of our room on the front porch so it was nice to have an outdoor living space. The bed was comfortable and the housekeepers came in every night to put the mosquito net around our bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is a dream. There is no where else to stay for a more authentic Thai experience. The grounds are like a rainforest, Every room is a private cabana like setting, the pool area is amazing.

"Lovely retreat in a hidden garden"
My husband and I stayed at Sawasdee Village for 15 days in late April/early May 2012. While the hotel rooms are showing some signs of wear, the garden/ landscaping/ decoration of SV more than made up for it. At night, the garden is magical-- the hotel is hushed, filled with insence and torchlight. The contrast between the bustle of Kata and the warm […] quiet of the garden was almost shocking, but always welcome. Absolutely lovely. The staff at the hotel were phenomenal--the front desk answered all of our questions capably, and the cooking class through the hotel is well worth the extra money. This little boutique hotel has a heart and soul, and they both live in the garden. I used the Baray Spa my last day there--the experience was near religious; it was so beautifully decorated, and the treatments were opulent. We'd stay there again.

I LOVED THE ROOM AND HOSPITALITY, THE ONLY BAD THING WAS I HAD TO WAIT FOUR HOURS FOR MY ROOM TO BE READY AND WAS NOT OFFERED NOTHING FOR MY WAIT.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel and especially it's beautiful tropical garden surroundings. It is an oasis in the Kata/Karon Beach neighborhood. The pathway to the rooms is lined with gorgeous gardens and lanterns that are lit at night. Would highly recommend this hotel for it's reasonable price, but mostly it's beautiful setting that is the […] epitome of Thailand. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but too quiet"
Very nice tropical setting but not much going on there. Rooms a very small and there are no drawers anywhere to put clothing in. Room for one open suitcase only; our second one was placed in top a garbage can and partially blocked the entrance. One restaurant only but food and service were good. One small poolside bar that opened at 10 AM and closed […] at 7:00 PM. No entertainment or music at any time. Great if you like a quiet (aka boring) venue . Not within walking distance to the beach. Free shuttle on the hour. Not what we were looking for and thought the internet description was a little misleading . That's life, next time we would look somewhere else. Don't get sucked in to the $100 "intimate romance " dinner. Not worth the money to be the only people in a huge dining room with average food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent hotel, for an excellent holiday"
My partner and I have just returned from this hotel after a two week holiday. We had a great time and this hotel was a big contributing factor. It is in a great location, is beautifully landscaped (like being in a tropical paradise) and the staff were very polite. It is located on a smaller street just off the main street of Kata and is about a 15 minute […] walk to the beach, however it has a free shuttle service if you didn't want to walk. The walk didn't bother us (go left at the high street and use the beach at the wave machine end). For the price we paid compared to the others that we saw, this was definitely the best hotel and stood out over the high rise looking ones. Its location was also quiet, with a lovely pool bar. Room was spacious and had good facilities and we felt the room service charges was very reasonable. Lots of on the house water and the food and cocktails were good. We would definitely recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Christmas in Kata"
Arrived late in the evening and had quick and smooth check in. Received our complimentary welcome drink and then a tour of our rooms from our hostess. Spent four nights in this hidden gem. Only a 15 minute walk to the beach or you could take the hotel shuttle running every 15 minutes. You didn't need to go to the beach and could just stay in this oasis […] enjoying the pool, fountains and excellent food. The only problem we encountered was a leaky air conditioning unit but it was repaired as soon as we contacted the front desk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
