    Amazing

    This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. My expectations were high because of the beautiful photos, but it was so much better in person. There is a nice beach close by and lots of good restaurants. Honestly, we enjoyed the pool and hotel accommodations so much that we stayed at the pool a lot! The staff was friendly and the spa was one of the best!

    The various pools throughout the resort were breathtaking, and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here!

    This property is a little deceiving at first and easy to drive by without noticing it on a busy street due to its very small entrance. It all changes when you walk on in. the grounds and facilities are amazing and you could spend an entire day just walking through the gardens. Very well maintained and the pools are kept very clean. This property is right in the middle of all the action and a 10 second walk to multiple entertainment options.

    Amazing night at Baray Village

    This hotel was amazing! The attentive to detail from the moment you check in to when you leave the city, not the hotel! Everyone working greets you with a smile and wants to make sure you have everything you need to have a perfect stay. There were many pockets of the hotel that you can check out to have a different feel and view of the place as well. The spa and restaurant had food that exceeded my expectations.

    We were greeted with a 2500 baht deposit we were not previously made aware of so that left a sour taste in our mouth upon arrival. We arrived early and were able to check in about an hour before we were supposed to which was nice. Room was incredible, but could have been cleaner. The couch had stains on them that looked like they were from naked time and small things like the back of the remote was missing, toilet upstairs too small for my husband, shower door wouldn’t stay shut, etc. Nothing to bother our stay, but for the price we paid our expectation was high. Breakfast was wonderful each day. Staff was very kind and always had a smile on their face. Very helpful with tips to get around and transport to islands. The pool was stunning and very well kept. We were in the villas. The main pool was enjoyable but not nearly as nice. Service was exceptional and our room was always made up. One incredible service point was in regards to when we were in Phi Phi. We left our brand new Nikon camera in our safe and were already on Phi Phi.. aka an hour taxi ride and an hour boat ride away. My husband spoke with the manager, Pe, at Baray Villas and she was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to help us get our camera back. She knew someone who worked at a boat company and was able to securely pack our camera and send it with him to Phi Phi so we didn’t have to waste a day of vacation going to get it. Thank you so much Pe!

    The villas at this hotel are large and very luxurious. The private pools are my favorite part. We loved it so much the first time, that we went back for a second trip, and we plan to go back again.

    With a few tweaks could be a 5 star

    No doubt when this hotel was new it was phenomenal.The pool access room interiors are spectacular, although our room was starting to show signs of needing some TLC in places. The staff could be more friendly and a be a bit more attentive. Most of the time when we asked them questions, it felt like we were bothering them. The swim out of room pool was great, our daughter loved it, even if the water was a bit on the cool side. Unless you get to breakfast early, the dishes of food are often near empty, but in general the local dishes are tasty enough. The hotel seems to cater for mainly Chinese guests, or at least when we were there it did. Overall, it is a small piece of paradise nestled amidst the hustle and bustle of Kata, with lots of restaurants and spa massages nearby. The beach is a 10 minute walk and was decent enough. Word of warning, if you need to use the local taxis, once they know you are staying at Sawasdee, they hike the price of the fare up! All said and done, with some minor renovation and staff training, this hotel would deserve to be rated 5 star.

    Beautiful resort that I regretted didn’t stay here from the beginning in Phuket. I booked pool access Villa. There is a swimming pool for Villa customers only which is clean and quiet. The other side’s swimming pool was good too. Night time lights up underneath the pool, looks lik milkway But don’t leave any food outside!!! My fault to leave an in finished corn on the night table n there were tons of ants on in morning!
