I have to tell you I was a little worried when we booked this stay. From experience if place is named "dream villa" then it usually isn't. In this case the name fits. What you see on the website is what you get. Rooms are amazing. All of our pics look like stuff you see on Pinterest. Staff was amazing and it felt like they were there just for us the […] entire stay. Impossible to name one standout as they were all ready to help at all times. One of the concierges is aptly named Siri. Location is perfect if you just want to spend some time to get away from it all... It is away from it all. However, we could not find a reason to go anywhere else. Food was amazing. A bit pricy for Thailand but still about half of what comparable meals would cost here in DC. The daily breakfast buffet should be called a daily gourmet brunch. My favorite part was the honeycomb dripping fresh honey. The beach was okay, but again there was never any reason to leave the private two level pool, waterfall, hot tub and outdoor sala. Spa prices were in line with other high end spas, but yet again it was like having our own personal spa as they were always ready to accommodate. Can't wait to get back to that side of the world again thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A rare high end property in Thailand"
There are many properties in Thailand that are touted as 5 stars. Sadly, most do not live up to their billing and thus leave you feeling frustrated and at bit ripped off. Maikhao Dream Villa Resort and Spa is on of the few exceptions. From the moment you arrive and are greeted by the staff, to your firsts steps into your spacious and modern villa, […] you know this place is different and your stay will be a memorable one.

"Resort in Paradise"
On the quiet side of the island of Phuket (who knew that there WAS a quiet side?) about an hour from the party beaches, so be forewarned about that. But only 15 minutes from the airport. But more importantly a beautiful resort in a beautiful location with really excellent staff and good food. Need I say more? I highly recommend this spot for couples, […] families or anyone who just needs to relax in paradise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Maikhao Dream Review"
Beautiful property. The rooms are absolutely amazing. Communication was a real issue though. What good is a private butler if they don't speak english?Genuine Expedia guest review
飯店，食物，海邊都令人滿意。唯獨交通很差，飯店說沒有辦法叫計程車，只能用當地的黑車。費用非常的高！下一次我還會想要入住，但是我會租車吧！Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place to Relax"
03/12/14 IHB1961 Calgary, Canada
We decided to spoil ourselves on a trip to Phuket. We wanted a villa experience, but with the convenience of a resort. We found the best of both worlds at Maikhao Dream Villa Resort. We were met at the airport by Nikki, our "guest ambassador", and took the complimentary shuttle to the Resort. Our two bedroom villa was luxurious and comfortable. Each bedroom had a beautiful ensuite and very comfortable beds (our daughter's only complaint was that the beds were too comfortable - she had a hard time getting up in the morning). Oh yeah, the villa also had its own private pool and whirlpool. The Resort offered a very good breakfast buffet that was open until 11am (good for our late rising daughter). The buffet had a good selection of both Eastern and Western cuisine. There is only one restaurant at the Resort (you can eat inside or on the beach), but there is a good selection of appetizers, main courses and desserts (again, both Eastern and Western cuisine). Our meals were very good. Mai Khao Beach is beautiful; great sand, warm water. I have to admit, though, that we spent very little time at the beach. Much more relaxing and convenient to sit by our own pool. The Resort has only 22 units (about 100 guests max). It was exactly what we wanted; a quiet place for rest and relaxation. It won't, however, be for everyone. If you are looking for a resort with nightlife or lots of shopping options, this is not the resort for you. Our overall experience was great. Great accommodation, great service and great fun.

"Massive & Impressive Enough"
02/03/14 y-hsiang Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
If you're the kind that thinks size matters, then this place is for you! My family was blown away by the sheer size of our 2 bedroom villa, and everything was beautifully done, especially the private pool area. For once, the actual villa is nicer than the pictures you see on Trip Advisor. Trust me. Thankfully we didn't see any rats as mentioned by other reviewers. Let's get to the chase: Positives: 1. Very secluded area, small number of patrons. You won't see too many faces around the resort or beach. Good if you want a private/peaceful retreat. 2. The villa is a stone's throw from the beach. The beach & water is clean and it's miles of peace & serenity. 3. The villa is so nice & comfy you won't feel like leaving haha :) 4. Staff are friendly & attentive 5. Main pool is large & deep, and because they aren't many patrons it is ideal for uninterrupted swimming Negatives: 1. Beware of mosquitoes! We were bitten quite often both outside and inside the villa, and even at night when we were sleeping 2. Breakfast buffet selection was limited compared to other resorts 3. The villa's kitchen is complete with stove & all, but without any cooking utensils or even a cutting knife (eg. for fruits), how do they expect us to do anything? 4. The seclusion of Maikhao from Phuket town and everything on the South side of the island (Wat Chalong, BIg Buddha, Promthep Cape, Patong, Fantasea) could be a disadvantage depending on what kind of holiday you're planning. If you plan to go out and about, then all the Maikhao resorts are pretty far from the excitement. Expect a lot of traveling. To make things worse, the area just outside the resort seems to be controlled by a taxi "mafia", meaning to say the taxi service provider is not a legal operator, and because the resort is so secluded you have no choice but to use their service. Don't get me wrong, their vehicles & service is good, it's just a slight bummer to know that you're being ripped off from what a normal taxi would charge. But this is not the resort's fault, or so it seems... Anyway, in spite of the negatives, I would probably give this place an overall positive rating for the villa's size & beauty.
"Truly dream Villas"
The hotel location is 45 min from town, some may see this as disadvantage. But you have everything you need.. Excellent staff Great Chief who would make you feel you are the only special guest in the hotel. The very spacious 2-bedroom villa with private pool and back door directly on beach sand makes the view from bedroom a matchless beauty.
"Not my favourite"
01/28/14 charlierao Singapore, Singapore
The villa was beautiful but the s pretty average for this kind of a resort. Though I had a fairly good time, I would not return Pros: Our butler Chayanunt(Nanny) was the highlight of our stay. Her service was commendable. Beautiful villa with huge rooms and bathrooms. The chocolate cake arranged for my friend's birthday was excellent. Resort 15 mins from the airport. Beach private and clean. Cons A murky pool Poor housekeeping. Turn down service did not clean our wet bathrooms after we had used the pool. The excuse given was that we did not respond to the doorbell. The doorbell is not loud enough to reach the pool area. Food portions are tiny. Not value for money. Food was mostly bland. This is the first time in all of my travels to Thailand that I tasted a sweet Thai green curry. We were not allowed a late check out, inspite of our willingness to pay. We were not even allowed another room as we were told all rooms were full, which was not really the case. We had to spend the next 5 hours hanging around the lobby and the beach which was not a fun thing to do on our holiday. Taxi service outside the resort was expensive.
"Rat in our Villa...!"
12/31/13 Rafael S Singapore, Singapore
My wife spotted a rat when we checked in. We called front office for help and Housekeeping guy showed up with a rat trap to capture the rat. We want to checked out strait a way but we staid and this was our biggest mistake. Never ever again maikhao dream. Rafael and family
"Loved Maikhao !!"
12/27/13 131Emie Melbourne, Australia
I had accidentally booked Maikhao dream villa resort instead of Maikhao dream resort Natai - best mistake !!! We loved our experience here - our one bedroom villa was just beautiful as was the outside courtyard with pool and spa. The villa was immaculate and serviced x2 daily - lovely bathroom products. The staff all make you feel so welcome - you almost feel like you are the only guests there. The breakfast buffet was excellent and our (Thai) dinner at the restaurant was delicious. We virtually had the pool and entire beach to ourselves and enjoyed the beachside massages. The location is isolated but we were happy to enjoy the surroundings and chill - golf course nearby. Was great to have a few nights here - close to the airport which was a bonus after long flight from Australia. Would definitely like to come back to Maikhao one day!
"Perfect, complete with villa pet rat"
12/22/13 A TripAdvisor Member
We were astounded by this place when we got there... The furnishings were just as described in other reviews, each villa was huge, and we had a private pool and jacuzzi. We got settled in quickly and decided to go and explore the rest of the resort, including the public pool area. When we got back, some longans which I had been sure had been on the table were on the floor. Couldn't figure out why. Later on, the mystery was solved when my husband spotted a rat crawling around on the inset ceiling. We called for help, and folks showed up with a rat trap to capture the rat. To their credit, they seemed quite familiar with this scenario, so I guess it's something which happens fairly often. After the trap had been set for a while, we heard some noise and went out to find a hapless rat stuck on the glue (yes, glue, very old school of them), and the staff arrived soon enough to take the rat away. The next day, the butler showed up in the evening and mumbled something about how he had been too busy in the morning to come and meet with us. Err, I'm sorry but if you're supposed to be our personal butler I'm not quite sure you get to tell us that you were too busy for us. In any case, we told him about the rat. He was unfazed, and simply asked, "Oh, were there more?" We also went to a cocktail hour where the General Manager supposedly was gathering feedback from the guests. My mother told him about the rat, expecting profuse apologies and perhaps some mitigating peace offering, but was instead told that "we shouldn't have left the gate leading to the beach open", and "of course we do pest control regularly". I suppose we didn't look like the type who would post on TripAdvisor. And indeed we typically wouldn't, but the treatment that we had gotten here, as well as the shock of finding a rat in an otherwise apparently perfect villa (we travelled with my 8-month old daughter so we were on rat lookout for the rest of our stay... Not to mention wondering constantly about which of the cutlery and furniture the rat had been crawling over), had prompted me to write this review. Very disappointed.
"Amazing family or romantic vacation"
perfect hotel,perfect service,great food.quite expensive but worth saving money for your perfect family vaction or honeymoon.the hotel is 10 minutes from the airport and the region itself is in a remote area,so you will feel like your the only tourist in phuket...
"If you want heaven on earth, its here:)"
I've no words to express how happy me and my family were here! Its really a paradise on earth! Very right to its name itspreally a dream come true:) thevilla was superb with all the facilities! You name anything and it's there! The service and hospitality was awesome.and most of all thanks to Tee who really took care of us! The location is the best I've ever seen of all the resorts on beach. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were the two places where we spent maximum of our time.I'm sure this was the first experience here but it won't be the last!!! Every moment here was memorable:) three cheers to the mai Khao dream villa resort team!!!
