As we own two villas, right next to each other, the reviews below are from guests that have stayed at either Villa Jasmine or Villa Malee.
No hesitation in recommending Villa Jasmine
We stayed at Villa Jasmine for 12 nights in October 2018 with our 3 adult children and their partners. It is difficult to think how our stay could have been better. All the bedrooms were large and with en suit bathrooms. They were cleaned perfectly everyday. The lounge and sitting area was great and the kitchen large and well equipped. The pool and outdoor sitting area had fantastic views down to Kata Beach and to the Big Buddha in the other direction. Undoubtedly the staff made our holiday. The manager Noi was available on whatsapp to help with restaurants and taxis at any time of day. She checked regularly to make sure everything was going well. The maids, Nuch and Pat are fantastic cooks. Breakfast was served at the time of our choosing. For the price of the ingredients they cooked the best Thai food we have ever eaten. You can choose from an extensive menu and they will prepare lunch or dinner. It was amazing every time. European style food is also available. Mhoo, the other member of staff, kept the pool area spotless and shopped for a fresh supply of beers and drinks everyday. Transport for 8 people to beaches or restaurants was always easily arranged by the staff. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Jasmine to anyone.
We will definitely be back!
If you’re looking for an amazing family getaway, look no further. The home was perfect for our family. It was so nice to have the exceptional staff there to help in every way....cooking, cleaning, rides, ideas on what to do...truly amazing! We will definitely be back! We all thank you for an amazing time in your beautiful home. The staff were attentive and kind. The food was amazing.
非常棒的别墅和非常好的员工， 别墅维持的非常好，到处都很干净，床单，毛巾和浴巾都是一股香甜的柚子味道，Mon和Muay做的饭也相当好吃，还特别大份，我们7大2小，点3-4个菜就已经吃的很饱了，经理Noi特别好沟通，人也很热情，叫车和安排按摩都有求必应，负责接送的司机Paul开车特别稳，人也很礼貌，一出机场就看见接机的牌子，特别有安全感。希望下次有机会再来。 The villa is very superb ,and the two ladies named Muay and Mon are very friendly and always ready to help , both them are very good chef, offer very good taste food with fresh ingredient， the pool is cleaned everyday by Mhoo , kids like the pool and the Jacuzzi very much , all rooms have their own bathroom, everyone gest the privacy , in the living room and the top sala our family enjoy happy togetherness. Noi is a very efficient Manager， arrange everything for us in a short time, and Brian , the owner , keep in touch with us before and after we book , give us many useful information about our holiday. many thanks to everyone from Villa Malee to give us an enjoyable holiday. Highly recommended.
Your wonderful staff just amazed us
Villa Malee, what a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Kata beach without being in the hassle and bustle . * pickup from airport✔️ straight out the front and away. * arrival at villa ✔️ so welcoming. * Villa so clean , comfortable beds , all rooms with ensuite ✔️. * Villa staff cannot speak highly enough of the ladies ✔️. * Dinner cooked by staff, some of the best we've eaten. So fresh . Better than any restaurant we ate at✔️. * Breakfast every morning catered for all ✔️ * Transport at front door or staff happy to organise and not expensive ✔️ * Hassle free massage available at villa ✔️ Cannot recommend Marlee highly enough.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Malee. We asked about you, but Khun Noi said you were away. Your staff were excellent. Khun Noi had everything taken care of and Mon, Muay and Mhoo made our stay comfortable. The food cooked for us were all excellent. After the first dinner there, we asked for more for the next night. We got lucky with the weather. We heard from Khun Noi that it had been raining a lot. The sunset from the pool area were stunning. I'll try and upload some photos with my review on Airbnb.
Khun Noi and her team went beyond anything we expected
We stayed at Villa Malee for 10 days as a group of 8 in August 2018 and can honestly say that there was nothing about the stay that was disappointing. The place is very well presented, kept immaculately clean and in a good high location that gets breezes above Kata Beach. Khun Noi and her team went beyond anything we expected - food was magnificent and they responded quickly to all of our needs, taking the time to make sure we were happy with everything. What I liked in particular was there was nothing available in Phuket that they couldn't organise and everybody they linked us up with provided good service. Also, when it came to the end of the stay and paying the bill for food and drink it was definitely not loaded with margin. I challenge anybody to eat and drink to such a high standard in Phuket for less than it cost us.
Super great and hospitable
Just want to drop you a note of thank you for everything. We enjoyed ourselves and Khun Noi and team were super great and hospitable.
This is the best holiday experience I have ever had.
I have stayed at both Villa Jasmine and Villa Malee in recent years (currently July 2018). Both villas are simply lovely - tastefully and comfortably furnished to an extremely high standard with excellent house keeping services from the live in staff. The pool is sparklingly clean and there are super views down to Kata beach, particularly at sunset. A delicious breakfast is included, all cooked to order and there is a wide choice - I particularly LOVE the platters of fresh fruit all served Thai style with lovely decoration. The staff will do all your grocery shopping and each evening will cook a Thai or western meal of your choice for the cost price of the ingredients..... this is simply the best Thai food I have ever tasted - better than any five star hotel or restaurant! I would return again and again for the food alone. The manager, khun Noi, speaks excellent English and is available by phone 24/7.
The food & hospitality were amazing
We had a lovely stay at Villa Malee over the past 2 weeks. 4 x adults and 4 x kids aged 14, 9, 7 & 6. Everything went very smoothly. We loved the villa, the pool, the entertaining areas and best of all, the food & hospitality were amazing. Can't recommend highly enough. We will be back one day too. Huge thanks to you, Noi, Mon & Muay for our lovely stay.
An amazing 3 night stay!
The only times I crossed the gates were upon entry on the first day, and exit the last. We were spoilt rotten by Brian's team our entire stay. The food was absolutely exquisite! We will be back, Brian! It was an absolutely fabulous short break, Brian! I managed to completely de-stress, the kids had a ball of a time in the pool, and not having to worry about food (which was exquisite) just made the holiday that much more perfect! Your staff are so lovely, they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy!

If I could give 6 stars to Brian, his staff, and his villa I would
Very accurate in description and communication with Brian and Noi at all times was a breeze. Brian was very helpful with helping us plan different events, which can be difficult while in a different country. His staff was incredibly hospitable (yes, the cooking is probably some of the best we had while abroad) which only made the villa feel more luxurious than it already is. The location was excellent to relax at due to its proximity to the quieter Kata beach, however if you are looking for more of a party scene it is about a 30 minute ride to Patong beach. I would definitely recommend to a family or friend! Thank you so much for all of your flexibility, advice, and incredible staff hospitality. We all enjoyed our stay as maximally as possible and your stay was a main reason why!
The highlight of the trip
Thank you so much for your email. We had an amazing time at your home! Your house was the highlight of the trip to my children. Your staff was very responsive and extremely professional. I will write review upon my return back to Japan. Thank you again!
All of your staff was 10/10
Villa Malee absolutely lived up to our expectations, we loved every single minute.
I'll make sure to jump on Trip Advisor and give you guys a great review. There was no areas within the villa that could have been improved, your customer service from all of your staff was 10/10 (especially Muay who was our live in maid while we were visiting).
The entire team, especially Muay, was helpful, attentive and kind. We didn't have a single communication issue and every one of us loved our interactions with all of your staff. I've been to Thailand a few times, but for most of the group, this was their first overseas experience and it definitely left a great impression.
The service was so good, to the point that I'd be up early in the morning and make a cup of tea, I'd put the spoon in the sink and before I could blink it was somehow magically cleaned and put away. The esky was stocked for us every single day, the beers were cold, the pool was always clean and and water was always available.
Breakfast, every single day, was incredible. We always had enough food, and it was always bang on time. Both the dinners we had the girls prepare in the villa was some of the best Thai food we have ever tasted. (Also your menus are awesome and have HEAPS of options, the hardest part of our trip was deciding what we were going to eat!) Muay and Mon were respectful, always available, calling us taxis and helping organise our activities. I can't fault either of them, and when we return we would love them to take care of us again!
Our towels and bathrooms were refreshed every day, I honestly don't even know when they did it, they didn't interrupt our activities once. It was like everything was silently and magically cleaned without us noticing.
The villa manager, Noi, checked in on us a couple of times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We could text her on whats app at any hour of the day and she handled all our queries very quickly and always got us a great result (and great prices) on tours, spa treatments and massages.
We couldn't have asked for, or dreamt of, a better customer service, the entire team needs a big pat on the back, they were absolutely wonderful and we are already talking about dates to return to the villa next year.Thank you very much for having us, we will be back!
An unforgettable time
Seven people stayed and spent an unforgettable time. The most impressive thing was that the house was spotless, and eating and swimming were very convenient for the seafood we bought from the outside and returned for free processing. The next time we went to Phuket, we would stay again. In this, about three years.

You have taken holidaying in Villa's to a new level
Just a quick note to say what a wonderful time we had in Villa Jasmine.
Kuhn Noi, Nuch and Pat could not have done any more to make our holiday better. Their willingness to help, was noted in many ways.
Charlie our 3 year old, still talks about Kuhn Pat. The memory of the evening she changed his nappy and gave him a wash will last for many years. Also when he got sick and had a temperature, while we were eating she gave him a light massage.
Kuhn Nuch, every day the food was presented as in a fine restaurant and tasted as good if not better. I had to do some work over the three weeks and needed some documents printing, Kuhn Noi was like having a personal assistant on hand.
Our 6 year old, Archie, just wanted to stay in that wonderful pool all day. He had bundles of fun.
In summary, I feel you have taken holidaying in Villa's to a new level. 6 stars.
Of course we know that money can buy most things, but you have managed to deliver the above at an exceptionally competitive rate.
Well done to you for delivering a quality product.
A wonderful holiday staying in Villa Malee
Our family ( 2 adults and 2 kids) just had a wonderful holiday staying in Villa Malee. The villa owner Brian, and his staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Home cooked Thai food was much better than what's out there in restaurants. We will definitely trying to book same place when we go back to Phuket next time.
Everything is perfect
Thank you very much ！Although the time is short, everything is perfect, especially the dinner is very delicious.
Sheila & Tony (USA)
would visit again with no second thought
The customer service was awesome, would visit again with no second thought, love everything & everybody, did above the call of duty with respect and love!
Great place to relax in Kata
The villa is located in a quiet area of Kata, up the hill and about 5 mins drive from Kata beach. The villa is 2 story, with all bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs (all with air-conditioning), and the main living area upstairs, with another bathroom and the outdoor alfresco area. The living area opens up to the pool which has a lovely view of the mountain all the way to the beach. The pool has a lovely position for watching the sunset each night. The villa is of a very high standard of cleanliness, and contains all the ammenities you need for a lovely home away from home. Breakfast was included with the stay. Breakfast was eggs (multiple ways), bacon, sausages, mixed fruits, yoghurt, cereal and a selection of bread/pastries. Each day you could request anything in particular you would like for breakfast the following day. We also had the option of having the chef cook for us for other meals. We took up this option on 2 evenings after returning from day tours. The meals were by far the best of the entire holiday. All the ingredients were fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs and requests for the entire stay. And although they were on the premises the entire time, it never felt as though they were intruding on our privacy. I definitely recommend Villa Jasmine for a group of family or friends wanting a private, secure and well appointed place to stay whilst visiting Phuket.

Everything was impeccable
This villa is exceptional to accommodate a family. Everything was impeccable. The food was delicious. (Strongly recommended). The follow-up of our requests and the reception were out of the ordinary. We felt 'especially pampered'.
Cette villa est exceptionnelle pour recevoir une famille. Tout était impeccable. La cuisine était délicieuse. (Fort recommandée). Les suivis de nos demandes et l’accueil furent hors du commun. Nous nous sommes sentis ‘’attendus’’

The pool and the views were stunning
After several days of trekking all over Thailand, Brian's house and staff were a little piece of heaven. We arrived in Phuket exhausted from an early morning flight from Chiang Mai and were greeted at the airport by a driver who brought us to the house where we enjoyed a full breakfast and massages arranged by Noy, the amazing concierge. She also helped us arrange transportation to Freedom Beach and to the airport and ferry when the 8 of us went our separate ways a few days later. The pool and the views were stunning, and the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back.

The food is absolutely spectacular
Wow..... what a holiday.... 7 of us 4 adults 3 Kids...... absolutely amazing...... words cannot begin to describe how lovely this place is.......you truly do need to see for yourself..... from the moment we got in the minivan on arrival to the moment we got back in the van on departure we was welcomed, looked after. everyone was friendly and nothing was any trouble.... infact the moment we enquired r booking Brian was straight up on the mark with everything we needed to know and any questions we had.... I must admit it was a little hard getting used to having things done for you but the staff made you feel at ease with a smile..... the food is absolutely spectacular and in my opinion better than the resturaunts.... the pool,the rooms, the views, the food, the service, the kindness, the happiness..... I have nothing but praise for villa Jasmine our Kata experience was made by this place and I would recommend it to everyone thank you so much from all of us The Adults and The Kids who might I add are already planning our return.... Thanks again for your super hospitality

Villa Malee is just amazing
Wau. Just wau !!! Villa Malee is just amazing. We stayed 7 people in the villa (5 adults and 2 children) for 13 nights and it was super. Very nice house in a quiet location. Lovely big pool and cozy terrase. Nice and clean everywhere. Good wifi both inside and out. And then there's the staff, they are a story for themselves. Very very nice and sweet girls (Mon and Muay). They did everything to satisfy us and made delicious breakfast every day and amazing thai food 10 out of our 13 nights, it tasted absolutely wonderful and we miss both them and the food totally wild. We must not forget the manager Noi, which is a big piece of life in herself. She was available 24 hours a day and responded promptly when writing to her. She was helpful with anything whether it was ordering massage, arranging a taxi or medical assistance, as we unfortunately needed it. It was as if she could do everything - nothing to small or to big. She is amazing and we miss her and her good mood very much. We must also remember Paul, the villa's driver. We booked him one day for sightseeing, it was absolutely perfect. Always helpful, happy and very punctual. Only little bit of minus is that the villa is a little bit far from down the city/beach, off a road that's a bit difficult walking on and you have to cross a very busy road, but it's a trifle compared to all the positive and we would love to come back to Villa Malee.
The concierge is also very attentive, providing advice and services anytime
The vacation experience was really great! Our big family came to Phuket for a total of eight people including my 80-year-old grandmother. This vacation took care of us in every possible way. The rooms are cleaned every day! I write this review in Chinese, I hope to provide more suggestions for the people. This villa is perfect for a family holiday, and the infinity pool is also ideal for taking photos. My sister and I very much enjoyed the two maids in the villa. They are very cute, very intimate, and super delicious to cook! Although it is not right next to the beach, it can be reached by car in 5 minutes. If you walk, you are a little far away. . As a resort, the villa is very quiet and very suitable for rest! The concierge, Khun Noi is also very attentive, providing advice and services anytime, anywhere. In short, it is highly recommended that you go to Phuket to choose Villa Malee!

The bedrooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent
Villa Jasmine was a better holiday home than expected, located in the mountains, not too far from the beach. Very conducive to the comfort of the holiday experience. Butler team and service team are very good. The owner is communicative and helpful. The villa is very comfortable. My kids loved the pool very much. The bedrooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent.
Shirley Lao, Shanghai, China
A very good experience
Villa Jasmine is a four-bedroom villa on the mountainside with the swimming pool and sunbathing area on the upper floor. Perfect for kids and sunsets. The chef's cooking is superb. With her experience she suggests popular Thai dishes we should try Fried chicken wings, Tom Yum Gung soup, fried pineapple rice, fried mushrooms, fried vegetables ... In short, everything is very tasty. It is better to use a car or tuk tuk for travel. The Concierge will arrange vehicles for you, local trips by tuk tuk are very cheap, and taxis for longer journeys not expensive. A very good experience, we hope to have the opportunity to go again.
Stefan Krook, Djursholm, Sweden
Villa Jasmine was fantastic
Villa Jasmine was fantastic and staff always ready to serve (without a charge). Cooking was FANTASTIC - the best we have found in Thailand. And we love Thai food. ..Great ”European” cooking also for kids :-)! The villa is a great hideaway from busy Kata/Karon but still close with taxis that the staff are always ready to order. If you want to stay in the villa but still need shopping done, the staff is willing to do this too, again without a charge. Rooms where cleaned everyday with flower decoration & ”towel art”. When you go to this area of Thailand. Try this place! It was wonderful and your staff FANTASTIC. Amazing cooking too!

The crystal clear pool and rooftop sala are excellent...
We were a party of 6 visiting for a wedding at Kata Noi and had a fantastic time at Villa Malee for the week we stayed. Prior to our stay, Brian was quick to respond and provide helpful advice to the many queries I had about Phuket or the villa. Once we arrived at the villa, it was made to feel like our second home. Our villa manager, Noi, and her team provided the most attentive hospitality you could ever need. Noi's english is superb, which made organising things like taxis and grocery shopping a breeze. The meals prepared by Mon and Muay, two of the helpful staff at the villa, were hands down the best we had in Phuket, if not the whole of Thailand! The crystal clear pool and rooftop sala are excellent spots to hang out during the day/night and enjoy a drink with friends. All rooms are spacious with big comfy beds, while the living room and kitchen are very well equipped. We will definitely stay again when we visit Phuket next.
Wish our stay was longer!
What can I say, Villa Malee is perfect! The kids love it and even before the holiday is over, they talked about returning to the Villa. The pool is very good size with float and jacuzzi. Nothing to fault about the villa which is very well kept. Host Brian popped over to say 'Hi' and he was prompt with his response even before our trip. Khun Noi the villa manager made us feel so welcome and she is very efficient, arranging our massages, nail painting. Both Brian and Noi gave us piece of mind by assuring us that they can be contactable at all times and indeed they were. The maids are very good cook and prepared such delicious home-cooked and fresh food, I must say that they are restaurant standards! Any regrets booking with Brian at Villa Malee? Yes, we have, wish our stay was longer. Brian, we certainly had a Great Time in your immaculately kept villa!
Timo Kiiha, Luxembourg
Hard to tell what could be improved
We would like to thank you for the excellent stay at Villa Malee and extend our warmest thanks to Noi and her whole team at the villa. All our expectations for the stay were met and exceeded, and it is hard to tell what could be improved based on our experience. We hope to return to Villa Malee at some point in the future.
Ashley Grant - Australia
Brian, Noi and Prada were excellent hosts.
The in house chefs were amazing and the food sensational . Private spatial king size bedrooms. Wonderful Pools and views to wake up to each morning. 5 minute bike ride to local beaches
Always going to be one of my best holidays ever
I recently stayed at Villa Jasmine for 7 nights - Absolutely loved every minute of it! The staff were incredible the attention they paid to making our stay comfortable and relaxing. All meals catered for were first class. The bedrooms are all spacious with ensuites - very comfortable bed and plenty of pillows! Airconditioned and ceiling fans of course! There were 4 guys occupying the 4 rooms -We were on a golfing holiday and this villa had everything we wanted - The upstairs area is spacious-beautiful pool with stunning views - watching the sunset with a cold beer OMG it doesn’t get any better than that!!! I would absolutely recommend staying at this villa - Family friendly in a safe environment - Perfect for golfing holidays - Perfect for everyone — Thanks Brian and Prada - Always going to be one of my best holidays ever
Tony Hopgood, Victoria, Australia
Absolutely fantastic, great location, staff were amazing
Only a short half hour drive and you are in the middle of Phuket, I cannot recommend this place highly enough, the beaches were amazing , the staff were so organised and professional - nothing was to difficult, the transport was arranged and also always on time. Eight of us guys went for a golf week and had the best time, it was fabulous. wow wow wow beyond my expectations I rate it 10 out of 10.
Greg Earle, Victoria, Australia
Just the best place to stay for a golf trip
7 Gentleman booked the two Villas. Jasmine and Malee operated by Mr Brian Phillips. Located in Kata. The Villas are fantastic. A nice quite location,yet just a short distance to bars restaurants etc.The trip was for golf and that was just a 30 minute bus trip. Food ! Breakfast was included in the deal.Whatever we wanted.Amazing. We had a number of evening meals in the Villas.There is a large menu selection to choose from.But you can order just about anything you desire,which we did a number of times.Everything cooked to perfection. Staff. Super friendly and very helpful.I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Alexander Haag, Switzerland
**** FANTASTIC ****
Brian and his team did a great job from A-Z. Our whole family (mother, father, brother and myself) felt like at home during our entire stay. we can only say: check it out yourself and your review will not sound any different than ours! Great treatment from the staff and they are such good cooks! also the pool and the whole atmosphere at the villa is unique. Four short words are left to say: WE WILL BE BACK :-)
Michelle Doran, Queensland
From day 1, Brian was extremely efficient & helpful
I knew this place would be special based on past reviews, but its very rare for somewhere to well exceed expectations!! From the hotel transfer we knew we were on our way to something special - Paul the driver was professional, polite & happy to answer any questions on Local area & sights. We went on to arrange an 8 hr day of sightseeing for a very reasonable price. We visted the Big Buddha, Chalang temple, Old Phuket Town & Nai Harn Beach - recommend all! From the moment our family of 6 (couple, 2 kids & 2 nans) arrived at the Villa Jasmine we were immediately impressed, from the warm staff welcome, the orchids that decorated the rooms & the full cooler box stocked with soft drinks & beer as requested. The decor is a lovely mix of traditional Thai & modern finishes....chunky wooden doors & furniture & clean decor - quality finishes. Villa Jasmine is spotlessly clean with cool downstairs bedrooms & every convenience you could imagine. Each bedroom was spacious, comfortable with plenty of wardrobe & storage options. With efficient & relatively quiet aircon & fans in each room, everyone was happy. The owner has clearly thought of every possible convenience & for the first time ever there was none of those “why didn’t they think of that” questions - absolutely every need catered for, from hairdryers to electric shavers & adaptors. The bathrooms were fantastic with the stand out being the master - massive with jacuzzi bath, huge rain shower & double vanity. The soft towels were replenished regularly throughout our stay & rooms were made up each day whilst we ate breakfast. There is even an option to place washing in laundry baskets if you wanted washing to be arranged for a small fee. The living, kitchen & dining is light, airy & very spacious. Ample seating for our family of 6 & more. Every appliance & kitchen item is spotlessly clean & with windows & screened doors all around you could capture the breezes, otherwise fans & aircon are available if required. There is a computer desk with a laptop & printer to use during stay - the free wifi was fabulous & 100 times better than ours in Australia!! The pool & outdoor area were really special & although we are spoilt with a pool at home, we found the infinity pool & sunloungers really relaxing - the views are just gorgeous! We had fresh pool towels always, a place to shower, hang wet towels & swimmers & a huge cool box always topped up with ice. Now, leaving the most important mentions to last......the staff, manager & owner. From day 1, Brian (owner) was extremely efficient & helpful & clearly wants you to enjoy your stay. Noi (manager) is just lovely & sorted every request, from transport to in-house massage. Noi visited on our first & last day & im sure if we needed her she would have been there in a shot! The biggest shout out goes to our wonderful Housekeeping & chef team Nuch & Phut. These ladies not only keep the villa spotlessly clean, they cooked the most amazing food we had eaten in Phuket - both Thai & Western. The food bill at the end was a very pleasant surprise & if we return we would definitely enjoy more meals at the villa. Their service was friendly & professional yet quiet & non-invasive. So as you have gathered the Villa is simply fantastic - a really well rounded mix of location, accommodation, amenities & customer service. We can all honestly say that during our travels of the world we have never enjoyed accommodation as much as Villa Jasmine & would now always consider a villa stay over a hotel/resort. Can’t wait to come back for our next visit!!
Michelle, Perch & Pantry, Queensland
Amazing service, exceeding our expectations
What can I say....Villa Jasmine is just perfect in every possible way! A well rounded mix of location, accommodation, amenities & service. From the young to the 'older' there was not one complaint & we would absolutely love to visit Villa Jasmine again. We would like to express our thanks once again to the Villa staff, Noi, Paul & yourself for your amazing service, exceeding our expectations & making this stay very special for us. Mark had an amazing 40th Birthday with both the visits from our Mums & the villa being a complete surprise. The food was phenomenal & found it to be better than anywhere we ate out, we only wished we had eaten in more often I will happily recommend your villa to all, but there is part of me that wants to keep it a secret :-) -- Congratulations on providing & maintaining a beautiful property with service to be proud of.
To say you are treated like royalty is an understatement
Happy days, great holiday. Back in Oz now. We are missing Thailand already. Went into web page, couldn’t work out how to post the review, so am sending to you. VILLA JASMINE + 11 years on I returned to villa Jasmine with old acquainted friends to relive one of the best experiences I had in Thailand. Why did we all wait so long !!!! It surpassed our first visit with exceptional staff, brilliant location and views, lovely afternoon and morning dips in the pool, always a coldie on hand and the food is an absolute knock out.The whole week there we ate in for breakfasts and dinner and visited all the beaches as you are centrally located between Nai Harn and Patong and easy to reach by bike or TukTuk. To say you are treated like royalty is an understatement. I have visited Phuket many times in the last few years and stayed at other resorts which don’t even compare. If you have the numbers, do yourself a favour and all pitch in and stay at this villa. It works out to be very affordable especially food and drink. An absolute mind bending week and we will be back again with another fresh crew more sooner than later.

Fantastic holiday experience
The reviews of Villa Malee were all positive and so the whole family was looking forward to the week long stay. And from the get-go, our experience was sensational. Noi was fantastic in assisting us with the minor details of pick up, flights etc. We were met at the airport by Paul with prompt efficiency. Having our own cook and helpers throughout the week was a real delight. The girls provided us with a magnificent spread for breakfast each morning. We also placed our dinner order each morning for that night and all the food was sourced on a daily basis. Mon's cooking is superb - certainly better than 90% of the restaurants around Kata and beyond. A tip - the satay chicken skewers are sensational and the seafood dishes are all excellent - but it's all very, very good. Mon and Inn looked after us especially well on a daily basis and their attention to detail and pre-empting our every need was fantastic. The Villa itself is very well appointed and a luxury to have a bathroom for each of the ample bedrooms. The pool is fantastic and overlooks the Andaman see in the distance. In terms of location, its a 20 minute walk down to the main Kata hub and around a (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)ht tuktuk or taxi ride home. This was a fantastic holiday experience, relaxing to the hilt. Many thanks to Brian, Noi, Mon, Inn and Mhoo!

Highlight is the staff and the cooking which was superb
The villa is ideal for a family of 6-8 people. The beds and bathrooms are very comfortable. Highlight though is the staff and the cooking which was superb. We asked for spicier cooking the next day and the staff were quick to prepare it the way we wanted. They kept the house clean and never imposed themselves. Please stay if you have kids and its not too far to the town, which is easily accessible

Incredibly helpful and hospitable
My girlfriends and I stayed at Villa Malee earlier this month for a very relaxed hens getaway and it was everything that we hoped for and more! From the moment we arrived, Paul (our private driver), Noi (the Villa manager) and the house keepers were incredibly helpful and hospitable. We hired Paul for a private day trip and his suggestions on local eats and sights were invaluable. When Noi says she's at your every call, she means it! Even if it's after a very late (or early) night out in Patong or when we wanted to organise a last minute island tour! The Villa itself was fantastic and incredibly comfortable. Beautiful sunsets were seen from the sundeck and the infinity pool and sun beds meant that 70% of our 6 day holiday was spent by, or in, the pool! It also amazed us how discreet the staff were, making up our rooms whilst we ate our prepared breakfast spread every day. We really felt like queens, with our bride-to-be excited and relaxed for her big day. Thank you Brian and all the team, I honestly couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay with the girls!!!
Thank you for the wonderful stay at Villa Malee, it was what we all desperately needed! Noi, Mon, Muay and Paul were all fantastic and incredibly helpful and everything was prepared so well. Absolutely perfect! Thank you again for the recommendation :D
Noi and the staff of the cooking is great
Brian的别墅位于半山腰上，和图片描述完全一致，非常漂亮。出行只能靠车接送，不过着不是问题，Noi安排的司机Paul非常好，几乎负责我们在普吉一切行程。工作人员每天都打扫房间，时刻保持着房间的干净和整洁，点赞。Noi和工作人员的厨艺很棒，我们在别墅用餐很开心，饭菜份量十足，给我们安排的一顿晚餐，我们吃了两天才吃完，价格也很合适，早餐非常棒，有西餐和面条的两种选择，强烈推荐鸡肉面条，合适中国人的口味。最后我的手机卡遗失在了房间，Noi 也安排Paul 给我送了过来，非常感谢。总之，这是一个非常值得推荐的地方，下次我们再来。
Brian's villa is located on the hillside, and the picture description is exactly the same, very beautiful. Travel can only rely on the car shuttle, but not the problem, Noi arranged the driver Paul is very good, almost responsible for all our trip in Phuket. Noi and the staff of the cooking is great, we are very happy in the villa dining, full of meals, give us a dinner, we eat for two days before the dinner, the room was clean and clean, Finished, the price is also very appropriate, breakfast is very good, there are two options for Western and noodles, strongly recommended chicken noodles, suitable for Chinese tastes. On departure, I left my cell phone card in the room. No problem, Noi also arranged to send to me. In short, this is a very worthy place to recommend, the next time we come back.

Magical holiday in Villa Malee
Spent an idyllic 2 week holiday this August in Villa Malee Phuket. Both personal and professional service superb. Beautifully appointed villa with lovely sea views...set against a tropical hillside where the warm tropical breeze was very welcome. Villa just as captured on the website. Fully equipped, tastefully furnished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean throughout our stay. Very well positioned with easy access to local amenities. Salt water pool always fresh and inviting. Very polite welcoming attentive staff whose attention to detail and unobtrusive service made our stay very relaxed. No request ever too much trouble. Delicious Thai cuisine freshly cooked and always exquisitely presented. Very smooth transfer in A/C minibus to/from airport. Trips arranged on request with ease. Excellent organisation throughout our stay from staff who had a very good knowledge of the local area. Would recommend this beautiful residence without hesitation. I don’t think I have ever returned from a holiday so chilled!! Peaceful....pristine ....purely delightful...PERFECT!! We shall return!!
We were a group of friends & ex-colleagues meeting after a long time. Brian's villa was just what the doctor ordered. The check-in was extremely efficient and the facilities top class. Where the villa really excelled was the quality of the food. Made by the staff from fresh, locally sourced bought the same day we concluded the food in restaurants couldn't compare. We were happy to have two meals (breakfast & lunch/dinner) a day at the villa. Every time we stepped out for a meal we discovered the villa had tastier food. I can't praise this aspect of our stay enough. The villa is in a quiet neighbourhood and the staff are very efficient at organising transport. The massage centre that services the villa is not expensive and provides very good massages. We had them over every day of our stay. Brian has assembled a skilled and efficient who work very hard in the background. Definitely recommended!

Awesome place the Serenity and calmness Top Class
Brian's pad is awesome, he has put a lot of thought on the creature comforts and everything was top class. From the moment you wake and grab a cup of coffee and step onto the pool deck, to the moment when the Sun is about to hide and settle in for the night, the atmosphere is just so Calming and de-stressing. We had a terrific stay and the in-house cook is an absolute must have. She cooked some great 5 star meals that were restaurant quality if not better. There is a large menu of food dishes you can pick from. The helpers are also polite and are available almost all the time. I would say do yourself a favour - BOOK this place ! Do not pass it by. 5 stars from me.

Private residence without the hustle and bustle of a resort
My wife, myself and 2 adult sons stayed at Villa Malee during the month of July 2017. Paul the driver used by the Villas was very professional and courteous and had a modern van with seat belts fitted. He collected us from the airport. Noi emailed me a couple of days before we left Australia to see what shopping we wanted and upon our arrival at the villa, food and drink was in the fridge in the kitchen and icy cold drinks in the large ice chest near the pool ready for us. The staff cooked us dinner on our first night which was Chicken with cashew nuts, fried rice etc. Great food! The villa is great. Clean, large bedrooms and living areas, large TV and DVD and TVs in all bedrooms. The pool was cool and spotlessly clean with Jacuzzi jets at one end. When we needed a taxi, the girls ordered one and the wait was no more than 15-20 minutes. The girls made our beds daily, cooked breakfast (we chose to have American breakfasts, with bacon and eggs, toast, baked beans, juice etc but you can have whatever you want) and then left us alone to eat and then came back and did the dishes. Breakfast was included in the daily price and you only pay extra for the ingredients for any lunch or dinners that you want the girls to cook. Alternatively you can do your own cooking if you prefer (but why would you?) The staff didn’t get in the way at all, but were always on hand when needed (you can call them with a buzzer in the kitchen). For anyone wanting a private residence without the hustle and bustle of a resort, this is the place to go. It can accommodate 8 persons in the 4 double bedrooms, so is relatively affordable on a person to person ratio. My wife and I had Thai massages in our rooms almost daily and it saves going into town to have them. Overall a great experience with personalised service and we will be using the villa again when we next return to Phuket.

We had a wonderful vacation because of you, Villa Malee and the fantastic staff. You will most definitely see my 5 star review online. Thanks again for your hospitality.
Thank you Brian for the amazing time in Phuket. I don't recall that we have ever had a better set up than that we had at your Villa. Excellent for 2 families with 4 young children. Service was unparalleled. The chefs and staff were always attentive and prompt. Staff and even Taxi driver (otto) were always watching out for our children and making sure they are safe. We will be back.

As wonderful as five years ago
The holiday was wonderful! Having stayed in Villa Malee 5 years ago I was hoping it would be as wonderful as it was back then. I was not disappointed !! The villa is the perfect place to enjoy beautiful Phuket. Set far enough away from the hustle and bustle making it the perfect relaxation spot to enjoy the views and superb service offered, yet in walking distance of Kata beach..perfect! Khun Noi and her team excelled themselves in being available to answer any questions we had, advise and book services and their care of us was exceptional. Villa is 5 star with beautiful clean facilities and the best of the best Thai cooking provided. Cannot fault anything it was all just so lovely and me and my guests thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be back!
Kids never wanted to get out of the pool
We were a group of nine people including two couples, four kids (3yrs -11yrs) and one single person (me). I booked this villa because I thought it would be a good place for the kids to bond and that they would be well looked after. I was right on both counts. The manageress Noi was always willing to help and even managed to get us a team of massage therapists at the latest moment post dinner time. Nuch and Moi, the staff at the villa, were kind, polite and very efficient. The two meals we had at home were fresh and delicious, including all the kids' meals. The nicest part of the villa was the living area and the pool. The children never wanted to get out of the pool. Last but not the least, the villa was spotlessly clean. Thank you Brian, Noi, Nuch and Moi!

Clean and beautiful
The house is well located, not far away from Kata beach. It is clean, beautiful, and whole service team including manager Khun Noi and maids are well trained and helpful. Khun Noi doing excellent job and feedback to our every request. The food inside house is good, as good as top Restaurant outside. Everything is wonderful and we do have a good time.

Staff was amazing and outstanding
Thanks Brian for having us, we really had great time. Your staff was amazing and outstanding. We are planning to come back again with family to celebrate Christmas and New Year

All the tired traveller could want
We had a wonderful time at Villa Malee with our 18 month old son. We were picked up from the airport in a spacious van with child seat (I hadn't seen that in Thailand before) and welcomed by the super friendly staff. We had done a small shopping list in the van which proved unnecessary as all the tired traveller could want was already stocked - cold drinks, fruit, chips, milk for our boy, etc. There is a restaurant style menu in the kitchen from which you can order your meals, which are then freshly cooked in the house. Thai and western food options available and all delicious. The sun deck is a highlight with a good size infinity pool including Jacuzzi corner and comfy sun beds. Above the sun deck is a little extra lounge area where we spent our evenings with a nice view on to the sea. Sun screen and mosquito repellent spray were available for us to use, very thoughtful. Rooms are luxurious and kept to the highest standards of cleanliness with fresh fluffy towels daily. Cot bed and high chair for our toddler were provided. Highly recommended!

Spectacular Holiday - wonderful memories
We are all safe and sound in Dubai. Thank you very much for looking after us so well. We had a spectacular holiday and made lots of wonderful memories. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all x. We had a lovely holiday and Khun Noi and the girls were all excellent.
Thank you for our stay at your beautiful Villa Malee.
Everything was perfect from the villa itself to the ladies that work here. The view is also amazing! This Villa Malee is amazing! The villa itself is very comfortable and has all amenities. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all very comfortable. The layout of the kitchen and family room wrapping around the pool area makes it very social. The pool area itself has great views and has lots of seating area. The Villa staff were warm and friendly. They assisted us whenever required, cooked great food and kept the villa extremely clean. The owner and property manager continuously kept in contact with us the moment we booked the villa. Always available to answer questions and help wherever possible... We are already thinking of booking our next stay! Thank you for a great vacation!
Matt Farah, Venice, California, USA
The chefs are top notch
Villa Malee is wonderful. Clean and spacious, with comfortable beds, fresh linens, and an incredibly attentive staff. The pool is refreshing, the air conditioners are effective, and the chefs are top notch, with fresh ingredients going into a restaurant quality meal every evening. Very strongly recommend this villa for friends, couples, or families.

We would recommend your villas for anyone
We are safely back home now in Canada, trying to adjust from the time difference. I do want to let you know that, aside from the wedding, that the stay at your villa was the highlight of our trip. All of your staff are exceptional, and we never really knew they were even there. We truly enjoyed the fantastic food, and exceptional service. We have absolutely nothing to mention that could be improved upon. Thanks again for checking in with us, and you can be assured we would recommend your villas for anyone we know looking for a place to stay!
Doug and Glenda Parrish Victoria, Australia,
Looking forward to seeing all again next year
Thanks for you email, we couldn’t of been happier, if we tried, with the holiday we had staying in your villa. Noi was an amazing organiser, you should be proud to have her on your staff, as too, for the rest of the girls that looked after us, couldn’t fault them, they looked after us like kings, even shed a few tears at leaving time , because we had formed a great friendship with them all. Certainly will be looking forward to seeing all again next year at same time all being well.

The view from the swimming pool is fantastic
We stayed 2 nights with my friends. We were picked up by the villa’s mini van from the airport on time. All of the rooms were spacious and clean!!! The view from the swimming pool is fantastic, overlooking the ocean and we could see the big Buddha as well. We had dinner cooked by the staff at the villa on the second night. The staff cooked us a very tasty Thai meal. We were made very welcome by the staff and we felt like being at home.

We are all very happy after our stay in Villa Jasmine
Our family of 8 people with a baby’s holiday trip is over, ha ha very happy! Villa Jasmine is really clean and comfortable! I say that our housekeepers, love them! Everyone is smiling, every day, full of Energy. Especially worth mentioning the butler and the chefs. The price is not more money than outside, but the taste is much better and really really good. Thank you so many days to take care of, we are very happy! Is a lot of money, but also a lot of value. Thank you very much for all of everything. We are all very happy after our stay in Villa Jasmine. The food was very very delicious! And now we’have arrived home.
Adrian Pocola, Vasile Loichita, Romania
Everything was perfect
Thank you for everything. The villa and the staff where amazing. Everything was perfect and for sure you will have us or some friends of ours at your villa in the near future. Thank you again for every effort, and I hope we also we’re ok and we didn’t do anything “bad” over there. Nice meeting you and we will hear each other for sure.

Warm welcome from your staff
Thank you for the villa. Great place and warm welcome from your staff.
Wayne and Katrina, Gungahlin, Australia
I was very impressed with the service
What can I say, from the moment I made the booking I was very impressed with the service I received from Brian the owner. Our family of 7 stayed at Villa Malee for 5 nights. We travelled from Australia for a family wedding and to see the sights. The staff at the villa where excellent and nothing was too much trouble. I have no hesitation in recommending Villa Malee for your next stay in Kata Beach. Brian a big thank you to you and your staff. I was really impressed with your prompt communication from the time of my original booking. Noi was an absolute delight and very funny. Your team at the house Nok Nui, Mun and Paul where very accommodating. Our family really enjoyed our stay and we will highly recommend your place to any of our friends.
Barbara Aras, Lamorlaye, France
Very good cook and perfect with the children
First of all, I would like to thank you for our very nice stay in Villa Jasmine, it was great !! I would also like to tell you how lovely were the two women who took care of us during our stay : they were nice, sweet, discreet, very good cook and perfect with the children. Do you think you could send by email or SMS the attached picture to “baby girl” (that’s how my son Joshua called the youngest one) ? Thank you for everything.
Victor Wang – Beijing , China
We had a wonderful stay in Villa Malee
We were totally 8 adults and 3 children together. Brian accepted our big family and provided extra small bed for children with FREE! The staff were very friendly and helpful, BTW they cooked food extremely delicious! We had a wonderful stay in Villa Malee, and now we are thinking of our next trip there:)
Tatenda Takawira, Newcastle, Australia
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Jasmine for 8 night with a group of friends. The villa is well maintained, clean and enough privacy. We had dinner at home for 6 nights, food was fantastic as we picked out our meals. The bill was quite reasonable when we finally checked out. The staff is super efficient, they give you your space and you hardly see them but they are there when you need them. Noi, manager, managed to sort out our in-house massages and transportation to the various places we wanted to go. The location of the villa is good if you want a quiet time. However transportation is required to get around, which Noi is always happy to arrange.

The infinity pool is amazing...
My husband and I booked Villa Malee for two weeks mid November 2016. We needed to recharge out batteries big time and we found that Villa Malee has it all and more. We were collected from the airport by Paul, received a very warm welcome from the manager and staff on arrival at the villa and were presented with a bouquet of flowers and cold drinks. We felt like royalty (Downton Abbey eat your heart out). It was a lovely gesture and they made us both feel extremely welcome from the start. Brian had even made sure there was cold bottle of champagne in the fridge for later. We were then given a tour of the villa by the brilliant/friendly manager Khun Noi. Villa Malee is extremely spacious and the two girls keep it beautifully clean. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need if you wanted to cook for yourself but we asked the chef to cook our evening meals and we were not disappointed. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and the price for two weeks for drink, snacks and evening meals came to an impressive £150. The quality was outstanding and the price equally good. The infinity pool is amazing with the views of the sea and sunset and it is kept beautifully clean. It’s in the sun most of the day and towels are provided for swimming. We did a couple of trips out which the manager arranged for us and we were not disappointed. Paul the driver was really friendly and we used him for our trips out at a reasonable price. We were not there for the night life but to get anywhere you really need a taxi but the good news is it’s not expensive to get to Kata beach with it’s many shops and restaurants. We have come home wishing we were back. Brian and his team provided exactly the kind of break we needed. The staff were never intrusive but there if and when needed. Nothing was ever too much trouble. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thanks to everyone for a fabulous stay x
Romina Fabiani, Hon Kong
We had an amazing time in this villa.
Everything was perfect. The staff was wonderful and cooked the best Thai food for us. The bedrooms are very comfortable, all with their own bathrooms. Thank you.

A fantastic two week holiday in Villa Malee
We have recently returned from a fantastic two week holiday in Villa Malee, and cannot recommend the place highly enough for either a large family or two families as we were. Contrary to other reviews we found Villa Malee to be very spacious, light and airy, with all the bedrooms on the lower floor and the living space, kitchen and dining room at pool level. This arrangement is really sociable and more than adequate for two families of 4. Although 8 adults might struggle to all sit and watch TV, that being said why would 8 adults want to sit around watching TV in Phuket! The dining area was next to the pool with a nice view of the sunset over the infinity pool and we found that the adults could stay chatting at the dining table or around the kitchen bar after dinner while the kids entertained themselves around the corner which was ideal. The sala is also a nice addition to the villa if you want a quiet space to read a book or enjoy an evening sundowner. The Villa Manager Noi provided an excellent service through the holiday, arranging transport, answering questions and booking restaurants for us either using the house mobile phone provided or WhatsApp. Judging by the quality of the tables she reserved for us in local restaurants including the perfect view at Mom Tri’s for our anniversary she, and I suspect Brian, are well known to local businesses and she acts like a personal concierge in a 5 star hotel. Talking of 5 star hotels, the service we received from Nok Noi and Mon in the kitchen was outstanding, and at the same time unobtrusive. As others have said the quality of the food in the villa is up there with the best restaurants in Kata beach. We alternated lunch and dinner so we could experience the local restaurants, culture, sightseeing and stunning views. The price is just the cost of the ingredients which are all fresh and good quality. A wide menu choice is available however we decided after the first night that we would leave the menu selection to the Nok Noi each day and in 16 nights she didn’t let us down. Each morning we would wake to a sumptuous breakfast, and after eating would return downstairs to our fully cleaned and made up rooms. The service received from Brian and his team was exemplary. From the initial enquiry, through lots of pre and post booking questions and during our stay nothing was too much trouble. True to his tagline in his various emails it’s clear that he wants his guests to enjoy their holiday. My advice is not to agonize over your booking and just do it as you won’t regret it. Our two families are certainly planning to return.
Alison Ingram, Barrow in Furness, United Kingdom
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone
We stayed at Villa Jasmine for 3 weeks in August 2016 . The villa and the weather exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was spacious and immaculately clean. The staff were lovely ladies who tried their best to be discreet as possible and were amazing cooks. Noi who managed the villa was friendly and offered us help and advice whenever we needed it. All made our stay as welcoming and easy as it possibly could be. We managed to visit all the places we wanted to see and do without hiring a car and enjoyed every minute!. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone, just wonderful!!
Karen Woollard, Victoria, Australia
Our stay was perfect
We had a beautiful stay and can’t wait to come back. We travelled with 4 adults & 2 children and from the very beginning, our stay was perfect. We stayed at Villa Jasmine which was the best holiday we have ever had. From the beginning, after booking our accommodation, Brian was fantastic, always responding promptly to our emails and any questions. He even arranged prior to arrival for distilled water to be available as my husband needed this for a CPAP machine. We were greeted late at night by Nuch & Moi who could not have been more attentive of our needs. They made us feel extremely welcome and could not have done enough for us. They had drinks and a light snack available for us on arrival. In the morning, we had a beautifully cooked breakfast for us. We stayed in for dinner 6 out of the 7 nights as their cooking was by far the best Thai meals we had all ever had, with food being so fresh and tasty with a good variety of options. On departure we were extremely surprised at the bill with food only coming to $56 per night for the 6 of us (4 adults & 2 children). We were introduced to Noi the villa manager the morning after we arrived, we were given a local phone while we were in Phuket to contact Noi who was available 24hrs a day,. She was wonderful and always extremely helpful with information, booking transport and arranging for massages etc to arrive at the villa. Noi also gave us the comfort that if we were out and ran into trouble we could call her to help us out with the locals. The villa was kept immaculate by Nuch & Moi and nothing was ever too much trouble. They were wonderful with our 2 kids aged 4 & 7. Since leaving, our children have said they really missed both Nuch & Moi. Whilst Nuch & Moi lived at the villa throughout our stay, we still felt we had total privacy as though we were there alone, but as soon as we needed anything they were always available and happy to help where needed. The pool was cleaned every morning and was spotless. Drinks and snacks were stocked daily and always in good supply and at really cheap prices. We plan to come back next year and wouldn’t even consider looking around to see what else was available as the villa and staff were wonderful and could not be faulted. Thank you for such a wonderful stay and we look forward to seeing you on our return next year.
Vanessa Kerrison, Panorama, Australia
The kids really enjoyed themselves
We had a wonderful relaxing time at the Villa Malee. The accommodation was spacious and very clean. The pool area with the view and the 3rd level was awesome. The kids really enjoyed themselves and we had time to unwind. The staff were very efficient and lovely to deal with. NokNoi and her lovely meals made everyone back home in Australia very envious. We only ended up eating out once for dinner. Mon was lovely with the girls and really got along with them. She also showed us how she cut the fruit she prepared each day. Noi was extremely helpful and efficient, especially when organising the massages, hair braiding and manicures/pedicures at home. Overall, Villa Malee was an awesome place to stay. The staff there were very good at their work and we would definitely encourage our friends to go there.
Danny Sapsford, Weybridge, Surrey, England
Great villa, fantastic service, dream destination
I stayed at Villa Malee in August 2016 – monsoon season! Before travelling, we were a little worried about the weather as thunderstorms were forecast everyday, but they either didn’t materialise or didn’t impact on our days enjoyment at all. Right from the initial booking enquiry, the service I received from Brian was fantastic. Prompt, informative replies, very helpful. It was very clear that he wanted us to enjoy our stay and experience the best of the island. On arrival the staff were brilliant. Always there when needed, but very inconspicuous at other times so as not to affect your privacy – the balance was just right, and the Thai food that they prepare on demand was beautiful. The Villa was spacious (we were 4 adults and 3 teenage kids), clean and well equipped. A 5 minute ride to the local beach, but plenty of other activities within a 30 minute drive. It was a fun 2 weeks, made easy by the willingness of the staff to help / organise everything from food to restaurant reservations, taxi’s to nights out, and I’d certainly recommend this villa to my friends. Everything was perfect, many thanks.We had a great stay in Villa Malee. Please say a big thanks to Noi and the staff who were fantastic.I left a positive review on Trip Advisor yesterday, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your villa to my friends in the future.

We will remember our holiday forever
We stayed at Villa Malee for ten nights this month. WOW!!! There were seven of us from two families. From the minute we arrived we were amazed with the beautiful property, the breathtaking view, the lovely infinity pool but most of all the amazing housekeepers Nok Noi and Mon. They made us a delicious breakfast every morning which was included in our cost paid. They would vary what they would cook at our request so we had variety. Once we realised how amazing their cooking was we ate most meals at the Villa. The menu to choose from is extensive. The Thai food they made was amazing and high class restaurant standard. We just needed to tell them the day before what we wanted for the next day. They gave us privacy and as soon as we sat down to eat they disappeared and then reappeared some time later to clean up. The cost of the meals and all the drinks supplied (available 24/7 in an esky) was so cheap. It cost us approx $140 Australian dollars per person for 7 dinners and 5 lunches and all our drinks for a 10 night stay. Kun Noi, the Manager was also available 24/7 to call taxis/tuk tuks or just generally for advice. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were cleaned daily. Paul the driver who picked us up from the airport in the luxury 12 seater minibus and returned us there when we left also did a great job. We also hired him for two full days during our stay for extended sightseeing. Thank you also to Brian who was very helpful and the communication with him on email was always easy and he would reply quickly answering all our questions. Villa Malee is a rare find and we will definitely be back! We consider it our home in Thailand. Thank you to Brian, Kun Noi, Nok Noi, Mon and Paul we will remember our holiday forever.
Cinzia Theobold – South Yarra, Victoria, Australia
We had such a wonderful relaxing stay. Villa Jasmine is my haven – my little piece of heaven – and we will return again. The girls were wonderful as usual and Noi was so helpful. I am back at work today but daydreaming about the pool. I have passed on your details to two work colleagues so hopefully that will come to something. We spent most days dreaming about the wonderful dinners we were going to eat in the villa – they never disappointed! We are tempted to come back for two weeks in June next year – I love the summer season in Phuket … Warm regards and please thank everyone for making our stay memorable once again.

The right contacts from taxi to sightseeing
My apologies for not getting a chance to meet you during my stay at the Villa. It was definitely enjoyable and I would stay there again with no hesitation. I do plan on doing a write up as soon as I get settled, we all had a great time and I will encourage everyone to write something. If you are ever in the NY/NJ/PA area feel free to reach out to me. Nuch and Muay are wonderful and Noi managed everything and had the right contacts from taxi to sightseeing. Best regards to you and you support staff.
Chris Wardle, The Food Guru, The Wirral, UK
The photos do not justify it one little bit!
The villa was beyond superb I personally will highly recommend and return. The staff were incredible as was the food. Couldn’t have been any better – well only by booking longer next time. If I were to say one barely negative thing it would be to update your photos on your website or maybe get a professional photographer in to take them as the photos do not justify it one little bit! Awesome all round tho!
Linda Donohoe , Toronto, Canada
The staff were outstanding in their efforts
We had a wonderful time in Thailand and ending our holiday with a week at Villa Jasmine with our children and grandchildren was definitely the way to go! The staff were outstanding in their efforts to please us and the dinners they prepared were a delicious adventure for us. We have enjoyed Thai food in Toronto but haven’t experienced anything like what was prepared for us at the Villa. We walked to the beach through town one day and it was interesting and fun to do that, but since it was so hot we took a taxi most of the time (arranged for us of course by Noi). She also arranged two different day trips for us, and we all especially enjoyed the day trip to Phi Phi, Maya and Khai islands. Thanks for your part in helping to make our vacation in Thailand full of wonderful memories.
Schafer Newman – San Diego – California, U.S.A
I cannot overstate how amazing this trip was!
From start to finish, Brian and the team of help (Khun Noi especially) took care of every detail to make this trip especially amazing for my friends and me. The villa is immaculate and beautiful. Upon arrival, the manager, Khun Noi, welcomed us and helped us get settled in. We had decided to eat dinner at the villa the first night, prepared by the chefs on site – it was so amazing that we ended up having dinner at the villa almost every night. The manager helped us secure a driver for our stay as well, which made our entire visit to Phuket so much easier. He always had recommendations on where to eat, and the best sites to see. The villa is an easy walk to Kata beach, which is definitely one of the nicer beaches on the island. You can also see the Big Buddha temple while sitting in the pool at the villa, so one day we decided to run up the mountain to check it out. Again, Brian and his team were incredible, I recommend them very highly, and if I ever return to Phuket I am sure I’ll look into staying here again.

Your home and the staff made the trip perfect
We had an absolutely fantastic time. We were travelling with my Parents and Cousin whom had never been to Thailand before. Your home and the staff made the trip perfect. There is nothing we would have wanted to change. My family are already asking when we could come back. Many Thanks for everything.

Luxury Villa, amazing staff
I had my birthday at Villa Malee with 20 family and friends. I wish I had stayed longer but my experience was filled with gentle care, incredible food, prompt service and luxurious living. Large bedrooms, comfy beds, fully stocked kitchen and amazing sunsets to view Andaman sea. I wish to return asap. Chef Noi and her staff are 1st class! Bravo!

A warm and welcoming home for all guests
We are all slowly making our way home! I can’t thank you and the staff enough for making our stay in Villa Malee such a memorable experience for our family. The day of the party was unforgettable.

I hope we can return one day, and would love to stay there again. All the best to you and everyone at Villa Malee!

Your staff are fantastic
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Jasmine. Your staff are fantastic and the food they cooked was first class. Your villa is perfect and we felt very at home there.
David Rose, Bermuda
Fanatastic live-in staff who took care of our every request
I did quite a lot of research before selecting this property owned by Brian. The location was perfect – very close to Kata Beach; breakfast included; fanatastic live-in staff who took care of our every request. Splendid and authentic Thai dinners cooked by staff. You can’t go wrong with this property. We have nothing but praise for the facility and especially your staff. They were terrific. We will not hesitate in recommending the house to any friends that may travel to Phuket.
Alexandra Solnik, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Brian, the owner, and Noi, the manager, are wonderful hosts. They immediately respond to any request and are accommodating. The villa is well maintained, everything works fine, the kitchen is super well equipped, great TV in living room and one in each bedroom. It does not have a real garden and is surrounded by other villas, but the view from the small pool is nice, overlooking Kata and the ocean. The villa is not super big, but the value is excellent. The best part is the wonderful service provided by the head waiter Nuch and her assistant. Great Thai cuisine (and I am an “expert”). Excellent service whatever we needed (food, drink, massage, transport, bike ride to the bank, etc..). From owner to gardener, this is service at its best. Very Highly recommended for a big family/group.
Beth Osmont, Manly, NSW, Australia
We had an absolutely brilliant time at Villa Jasmine.
I have been racking my brains to think of any constructive comments to help you improve but I cannot think of anything I would change. Nuch and Muay were just excellent, their service was exceptional but we never felt they were in the way either. Their cooking was fantastic and it was just great not to have to cook for a week myself! They were also fantastic with our baby daughter – she has talked about them non stop since we got back! It was great having the mobile to take out with us and have Noi at the end of the phone. She helped us out one night when we had a taxi driver trying to pull a fast one on us and I am not sure we could have resolved it as easily without her help. The villa is very well appointed everything we needed was provided. Having the esky at the side of the pool was another great luxury. The pool was fantastic as well – our daughter just loved the pool and spent hours every day playing in it. The elephant was a big hit! I was slightly concerned about renting a villa with a pool with a little one but I felt like she was very safe as it was easy to limit her access to the pool from inside and we could see the pool (and her) from wherever we were outside. Having the gate at the top of the stairs also made a huge difference. We will definitely be returning at some point in the future. Thank you again to you and all of the team for making our holiday so perfect. I will definitely be recommending you to all our friends.
Lane White and family , Las Vegas, USA
We absolutely loved our time at the villa!
The driver picked us up at the airport even though our flight came in very late, and the staff welcomed us as we arrived. We were treated to a delicious breakfast every morning, and they were very accommodating about the time we ate breakfast depending on our schedule. The villa was very clean and had everything we could have needed. We loved swimming in the pool together as a family and enjoying the sunset from there. The villa is located very close to the beautiful Kata beach.. We walked there with no problem. We decided to have the staff make us dinner in the villa our first night, and it was so good we had it again the next night! There is a menu with a large variety of foods that can be cooked and we were amazed how wonderful it was. After a long day exploring the Phi Phi islands, we wanted a massage, and the staff was able to call massage therapists to come to the house and give us all a Thai massage- they arrived at the house very quickly after we called to arrange it. We were so sad to have to leave when our time came to an end! We hope to be able to return to Phuket and stay at Villa Malee again! The home is gorgeous and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and they made us feel at home. We were so sad when our time came to an end. Please thank your staff again for us. We enjoyed their company, and their service was top notch!! Thanks again!
Yvonne Freeman, England
Absolutely amazing and we enjoyed every second of it
We all had an amazing holiday in your beautiful villa. I would be very happy to leave a positive review. Your staff could not have been more helpful. Everything ran like clockwork. It was as if we were staying in our own private hotel. The food was wonderful, we ate out a few times during our stay but we all agreed that the meals cooked by Noknoi were the best we had. Khun Noi gave us some great suggestions of things to do and places to visit, arranged taxis & boat hire and was available at the end of the phone 24/7 for all our queries and responded very quickly. All in all it was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed every second of it. Please convey our grateful thanks to all who made our first stay in Thailand such a wonderful experience. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer.
Tom Freeman, U.A.E
This villa gets a FIVE STAR RATING
I could not recommend staying at Villa Malee enough!! It is an absolutely wonderful villa, and the staff are incredible. Although the villa is not located on the beach as some in Phuket are, it is walkable in about 15 mins, although we preferred to ask the property manager (Noi) to book us a cab which was safe, easy, cheap and reliable. The live-in housekeeper and cooking team are insanely good and we ate some of the best Thai food we’ve ever tasted — better than restaurant standard all prepared right there in the villa. Also, my girlfriend has a gluten allergy which we had heard may prove tricky in Thailand — not so for the Villa Malee staff who prepared delicious, suitable dishes for her separate from the rest of us. Brian himself is very helpful, kind and quick to respond to queries. This villa gets a FIVE STAR RATING and I speak for our whole party of 8 when I say that we are wishing for the chance to go back to Phuket and stay at Villa Malee again!!
Fahad Ahmed, Singapore.
Our experience was amazing
All I can say is from the very moment I made an enquiry about the villa to the moment we checked out our experience was amazing. Brian was fantastic at keeping in touch and catering to any requests we had and that was followed up by his amazing Villa Manager Noi and the two maids who looked after us during our stay there. I honestly cannot say a negative word about anything and Brian please do thank Noi and the two staff who was with us during our time again. Will definitely stay here again anytime I visit Phuket. Thanks again Brian.
Ling Soong, Singapore
We definitely enjoyed ourselves and everyone from dealing with you, Khun Noi, Khun Nuk Noi, Nuch and Mon has been nothing but seamless, efficient and warm. Made the stay at our villa just lovely. My mum loved it so much... Just wish we had more time to venture out and enjoy more massages. Loved it!!!!
Vicky & Sean O’Brien, Kuala Lumpur
The villa is kept to a fabulous standard
We certainly did have a great time in Phuket. You have a great team at Villa Malee. They are polite, professional and most welcoming. Fabulous food at every meal and the attention to detail when catering for several dietary requirements was faultless. The villa is kept to a fabulous standard both inside and out and the quality of bedding and linen were better than many hotels I have stayed in. Your details have been passed on to friends so hopefully their next trip to Thailand will include a stay at one of your villas. Many thanks again.
Karen Gao , Beijing, China
had a great holiday in Brian’s Villa Jasmine
We, 7 adults & 2 kids, had a great holiday in Brian’s Villa Jasmine! The kids LOVE the villa & pool very much, they swam three or four times per day. Nuch & Tree did a really great job : made the delicious food we ordered, gave us enough privacy, always kept everywhere clean, I will miss the Thai soup they made！Noi was always responsive to all our requests: booking the car, arranging massage, inquiries for one-day-tours. I will choose Brian’s villa again if I we are visiting Phuket in the future.
Liyun Fan, Beijing, China
Strongly recommend to everyone
Lovely house! Great view! My family are very happy to stay there for 5 days. They keep talking about how cozy the villa is. It’s our first time that we have been to Thailand, we have a lot of fun there. The chef cooks delicious food and cheaper than any restaurant we’ve been. I felt sick the other day, and the manager Noi and staff in the villa take really good care of me, I’m feeling at home. Strongly recommend to everyone who wants to go to Phuket with your family!
Nick Rhead, Melbourne, Australia
We had an absolutely fantastic time thank you. Exactly what we needed, and Noi and her colleagues really took care of us.
Molly O’Rielly, Brisbane, Australia
We will definitely recommend your villa
What a beautiful time we spent as a group in your villa. The staff were beautiful and helpful….. huge shame we couldn’t bring them home with us! The villa was perfect for us, this was our first trip to Thailand. I am so glad we made the decision to move out of Patong… we had spent our first 3 days there and our holiday changed once moving to the beautiful Villa Jasmine! We will definitely recommend your villa to everyone we know. Thank you again
Their cooking was excellent
We all enjoyed our stay in Villa Jasmine thank you. The housekeepers did a great job. It was always spotlessly clean and their cooking was excellent.

Paradise by staying at Villa Jasmine
We were a group of 8 people (4 couples) and visited paradise by staying at Villa Jasmine. Before I write more specific details about the villa, there are 2 things you must know a) Everything written in the manual or the website is 100% true and photos do not do justice to the beauty of the villa b) Brian is very prompt in replying and made me feel totally comfortable before I even visited Thailand. We were greeted at Phuket Airport by the driver and he drove us to the villa in a 12 seater luxury van. At the villa we were again greeted by the manager, Khun Noi, and staff which included Tree, Nuch and Mon. The villa was way beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect. Food: The breakfast was a great spread and is par with any other buffet breakfast you may eat elsewhere. The chef cooked some great satay, penang prawn curry, pad thai and many Thai delicacies. Not only is the food better than local restaurants, it is at least half the price. The ice chest at the pool side was stocked with beer and all kind of drinks. The kitchen was well equipped with all sorts of snacks Other facilities: The manager, Khun Noi, was available 24×7 and had answer to every request we had. She would arrange in-house massages in 15 minutes, call a cab very quickly and help in just about everything. One day we wanted to rent bikes. I called up Noi and within 10 minutes someone came to villa to give us bikes on rent. The pool, of course, was one of the best parts of the villa. Location: The villa is located about 20 minutes from Patong and 5 mins from the beach. At first, I was skeptical about the location. But having stayed there, I am glad that we chose the perfect location. Pricing: The drinks and food at villa is very reasonably priced. Beer, coke etc. are almost at par with grocery store prices. Eight of us stayed at the villa for 4 days, had great 3 meals of prawn, chicken, fish, had lots of beer and the drinks, had tea at various times of the day, and consumed in-house snacks. Our bill for 4 days for food was 6500 Baht. That is reasonable by any standard. The taxi provided by Noi would charge 600 Baht for 8 of us to Patong. And finally, a few words about Brian and Prada. They are one of the nicest people I have met. We met them briefly for a a drink and thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. Brian arranged a golf game for us with a friend where we got 50% discount at Loch Palm Golf course. Golfers- are you listening? Highly recommended villa and I will stay here again in my next visit.
A wonderful week at Villa Jasmine
We recently had a wonderful week at the Villa Jasmine, it was perfect for our group, 4 ladies as the villa has 4 large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The infinity pool was exceptionally clean every day and we enjoyed it very much. The villa provides an eski by the pool stocked with beer and soft drinks and replenished each day. The fridge was stocked with wine and champagne, but we were only charged for what we consumed. The highlight was definitely the food, the best Thai food I have experienced anywhere. Each day the two lovely ladies working in the Villa would ask what time we would like our meals and we would select food from an extensive menu and it would ready for us right on time! The ladies were unobtrusive, always there when we needed them and but they quietly left without us even noticing. They arranged taxis, massages, facials, pedicures/manicures for us at short notice, nothing was too much trouble. We went to Kata beach a few times, a lovely beach so we were always very happy to return to the Villa for a swim and lunch or dinner. We ate all our meals at the Villa! A relaxing and fun holiday definitely recommended.
Karla Fieg, Australia
Villa Jasmine was amazing
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Villa Jasmine was amazing and the service provided was top notch. Nuch and Tree organised everything for us and cooked us some fabulous meals. We will definitely be recommending Villa Jasmine to all our friends and hopefully we will be back in the near future for another excellent holiday. Thank you all for everything, you made organising this holiday very easy.
Marie Laurence, France
We will return with pleasure.
Notre séjour à Villa Jasmine a été top – Tout a été fait pour que nos vacances soient les plus paisibles possible : gentillesse de l’équipe s’occupant de la maison – cuisine excellente (nous avons pris tous nos diners à la villa) – organisation de toutes nos excursions et de nos déplacements – Rien à redire. L’emplacement de la maison est impeccable et la vue au top ! merci pour tout – Nous reviendrons avec plaisir. Our stay at Villa Jasmine was top – Everything was done so that our holidays are the most peaceful as possible: friendliness of the team caring for the house – excellent food (we ate all of our dinners at the villa) – organization of all our tours and our travels – No complaints. The location of the house is immaculate and the view at the top! thank you for everything – We will return with pleasure.

Villa Malee a great place to stay and to relax
I and my friends enjoyed our stay in Villa Malee. When we arrived the housekeeper Khun Noi showed us around and explained everything about the villa (we were given a mobile Phone and we could call her 24/24h whenever we wanted). We also met the cook of the house, NokNoi. Mostly, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in the villa. Why ? It’s very simple, NokNoi is such a good cook that no restaurant in Kata can reach the level of her cooking. So most of the time we let NokNoi surprise us with her own choices of Thai food. Everything NokNoi cooked was great! For the meals and the drinking in the villa we paid +/- 5.000,- THB/person for 12 days of staying (that’s around 20 meals and all the drinks of beer, wine, soft drinks, vodka, gin, water). The staff were very discrete and you have the feeling that you are alone in the villa, but when you need one of the staff, they respond immediately to your request. The staff were very friendly and you can count on them 24/24h! The bedrooms and all other rooms of the villa Malee are kept very clean. The swimming pool is not very big (good to play in or for cool down but not for a swimmer). The “jacuzzi” in the swimming pool was great! There is a small sea view and the trees and greenery around the villa hides those walls of the buildings around. The beaches of Kata or Karon are great. It is a walk of 20 à 30 minutes to the beach or by taxi (400 THB one way/5 persons). A taxi to Patong costs 800 THB (one way/5persons). The day-rent of a private 2-engine speedboat with crew costs 20.000,-THB (transfer from villa to harbour and lunch included and maximum 8 passengers and visiting 3 islands of your choice). Conclusion : Villa Malee a great place to stay and to relax. There is a very good staff present in the villa and a great cook NokNoi.
Beverley Rose, UK
Such a memorable vacation
Louisa is still in Phuket but I am sure I speak for both of us when I say what a wonderful time we had at the villa. Noi was a wonderful host (and apologised profusely for the mix up over our arrival transfer – which all worked out fine in the end). Much and Moo were simply fantastic! We could not have asked for more from them. They were on hand to help with everyone’s needs, the food was wonderful and their presence made sure we all enjoyed a totally relaxing holiday experience. They are a credit to your team and should be commended for their efforts. The villa itself was wonderful! We found it spacious, clean at all times and the facilities provided were ideal for all our needs. We were hardly ever out of the pool and the setting made for perfect sunset views and a chilled out atmosphere which was just what we were looking for. We couldn’t fault the amazing experience we had at the villa. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and we will certainly be recommending Villa Jasmine to others who may be considering a vacation in Thailand. Thanks once again for all your help in arranging our stay and to your team at Villa Jasmine for making it such a memorable vacation.
Nicola Wilson, UK
The facilities at the villa are great
Thanks for your email, we spent a few days in Bangkok visiting friends after our break in Phuket and are now back in England. We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Malee it was everything we expected and more! I will write a review on tripadvisor but wanted to send some feedback: Everything was very easy and straightforward from booking the villa with you and throughout our stay. We were really glad to have your help and tips it took away any stress of planning and reassured us on our first long haul trip with the children. We received a first class service from the villa team, Khun Noi was very welcoming and always at the other end of the phone should we have any queries or for booking our massages and manicures. Nok Noi and Mon did a fantastic job of looking after us on a day to day basis. Noi’s cooking was lovely and better than any restaurant we ate in, we wanted to bring her home with us! The children loved tasting lots of new foods and they have been telling everyone about having their own housekeeper to look after us all! Noi and Mon were great at preparing food and leaving us to eat then clearing away after us, it was such a relaxing break not having to clear up after the kids. The facilities at the villa are great, we loved having the pool and it was very well looked after. The location is great too and easy to travel around with the local taxi service and tuk tuks. We have already passed your details onto friends and will be working hard to save up for a return visit. A big thank you from all of us to you and your fantastic team at the villa.
Mary Griffiths, UK
It exceeded our expectations
What a memorable holiday – it was fabulous! We met our three sons and their girlfriends for and family holiday ( two sons live in Australia). It exceeded our expectations – the setting, the facilities, the service – perfect. The food cooked by Noknoi, ably assisted by Mon, was FIRST CLASS! Our sons, who are seasoned travellers in Thiland/Asia, claimed it was better than any they have tasted in restaurants. The Tom Yum Goong and Beef Massaman will be talked about for a long time! And the cost was so reasonable! have recommended the villas to my sister in law and her friends and I know they will have a great time. Not often am I as confident when recommending somewhere to stay. Finally, thank you Brian, for giving up your time to enable us to play the beautiful golf courses (as your guest). That was a real treat. Please pass on our regards to Prada.
Rex Jones, UK
The best Thai food any of us have ever had
We stayed for 10 days, we were a group of 3 married couples. The booking procedure was simple and correspondence between Brian the owner and I excellent. From the moment we were collected from the airport until we were returned everything ran like clockwork. On arrival we were met by the nicest happiest bunch of people you could wish to meet, all the staff at the villa and the manager Noi (what a lady) were there and she gave us a briefing of what we could expect. Nothing was too much trouble, the food the best Thai food any of us have ever had. Nok Noi our chef brilliant, we asked for something not on the menu and she produced it brilliantly. Arrangements we made on our behalf for shows, shopping, cultural tour and golf. All arranged without a hitch. The format of quality accommodation and fantastic food in a superb setting is a winner, it is far more relaxing than a hotel but with all the benefit a hotel offers and more. We have recommended the villa to all our friends at a great base for discovering Phuket. We all would like to thank all involved in making our holiday a memorable one and on this occasion for all the right reasons.
Pernille Johnston, Australia
But be assured our stay was perfect
We enjoyed ourself to the max. in the Villa. I have been trying to find the time to sit down and tell you all the positives and how we were so happy with the staff but jetlag has caught the better of me, also we are currently about to move house today! I will make sure to write you a few lines as soon as I find the time. But be assured our stay was perfect. We loved the house, the privacy, the meals – everything.
Karen Van Ling
The view from the pool was breath taking
From the moment we arrived at Villa Jasmine we were blown away at the high quality of service and attention to detail the villa gave us! We had the best 7 nights and the Villa really did feel like our second home. Everything from food, drinks to even cleaning were taken care of for us by the staff and they never felt intrusive at all! The view from the pool was breath taking and we enjoyed our complimentary massages on our last nights by the pool at sunset! Everything ran perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! I will ensure we leave some comments on travel websites as we believe everyone should experience what Villa jasmine gave us on a holiday! Thanks again!
Adam Heyd, Hong Kong
we were very happy with the service from your staff
We had a great visit to Villa Jasmine and we were very happy with the service from your staff – hopefully we can book another week again soon. Overall the week was great and we appreciate your help and the help of your staff in making everything run so smoothly. Many thanks again.
Darryl Bourke, Australia
We felt like pampered VIPS
We had a wonderful holiday at your beautiful Villa Jasmine. We felt like pampered VIPS. The two girls were absolutely brilliant and the food was just exceptional, best Thai food I have ever eaten. Nothing was too much trouble and the girls just seemed to appear at the right times and then we would look around and they had quietly left us to enjoy. They also organised massages, facials, etc and taxis to the beach, nothing was too much trouble. They really made our holiday so memorable. The pool was wonderful and we all commented on how clean it was each day. We will certainly recommend your Villa to friends.
Suzie and Jeff Hooper, Australia
Khun Noi was so fabulous and welcoming
We had a brilliant holiday and again the Villa was an absolute highlight. Nut (I hope that is how you spell it) and Sia were amazing and so helpful with everything. They really became part of the family! The food was fantastic and so delicious, always exactly what we were after and no worries ever about getting sick as we know it was always prepared fresh and hygienically. The villa was always so neat and tidy and spotless. Khun Noi was so fabulous and welcoming, particularly with my muck up with the dates at the beginning. She is clearly very dedicated to making sure everything goes without a hitch. The pool was always sparkling clean and the grounds spotless so please also thank the grounds man, whose name I don’t know as we hardly ever saw him as he went about his work, except when the pump sprung a leak and then he was on to it immediately. Thanks so much for the gorgeous dinner on the beach, it is something we just never would have done if you hadn’t taken us there. Please say hi to Prada from us. I will certainly put a great review on Trip Advisor today and now have to start working on when we can come back!
Bob McEwan, Scotland
I cannot praise the staff enough
We had a wonderful time, the Villa was ideal and had everything to add that little bit of extra luxury to the holiday. I cannot praise the staff enough they were excellent and the food was a level up experience for us. The golf was a great experience, poor play but great crac with the caddies. The main tick in the box I would say is that everyone in our party said they would like to return. Please pass on my regards to the staff.
We would definitely recommend your villa
We had a wonderful family time at your Villa Jasmine and really enjoyed our stay, thanks to your welcoming staff. We would definitely recommend your villa.
Tracy Kemp, UK
Every arrangement as smooth as clockwork
What an amazing 4 night stay at the villa Jasmine. The villa is just beautiful and with 4 en suite bedrooms and its own infinity pool the amenities were perfect for the 8 of us. Better than the villa though are the staff who look after you. Unobtrusive and yet there whenever you need anything. The lovely ladies kept the villa clean and the beer and food supplies topped up. They also cooked all out meals! We made the food requests and they delivered the best Thai food we have eaten….and one of our 8 was a Thai! The cost for 4 days food for 8 was about the same as one meal in London for 8! On top of this a pick up from the airport and massages organised at the villa. Every arrangement as smooth as clockwork. My only note of caution is that it’s a fair walk into town and to the beach but taxis can be arranged no problem. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Thank you Brian and all your staff. A memory forever!
A real memory for life
We left Villa Jasmine today and just wanted to write to say we had an amazing four night stay. The arrangements went smoothly, the villa was beautiful, the staff so lovely, attentive and hard working and the food the best Thai we’d ever had. A real memory for life. In fact my son who lives in Bangkok is thinking of coming back some time with his mates he enjoyed it so much! Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday!
Louise Honner, Norway
We had a great stay
We had a great stay. The staff and their cooking were excellent.

Your staff members were great
We had a wonderful trip.. I love the deco of the villa. My kids loved to play outside the rooms in the downstairs hallway. Your staff members were great.
Rae Finn, Australia
It was just so relaxing
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Jasmine. It was just so relaxing. Sia and Neut made our week with their attentive service and their cooking skills, such lovely ladies. Also it was great being in contact with Noi when we needed to. Thank you and please thank the ladies again for us… perfect ladies trip
Katie Swain, Australia
We will definitely recommend this villa to our friends
We had a great time in the villa. Your staff were amazing & went above & beyond what we expected. We actually felt bad haha !!!! We will definitely recommend this villa to our friends & family.
Therese Buckley, Australia
Villa Malee met and surpassed our expectations
Well, what can I say, our stay at Villa Malee met and surpassed our expectations. The staff were wonderful, helpful on all occasions and made us feel like it was a home away from home. The property was great, even with two families we never felt crowded, pool and deck area amazing. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Once we worked out the location we found it wasn’t hard to get around, even with 8 people getting a tuk tuk was not a problem. Arrangements for our transfer to the airport on our way home was no problem and Noi very graciously allowed my daughter to use her room to get changed (it pelted down just as we were leaving Kata to head back to the Villa to get our bags and we got very wet). We would recommend (and have been) the Villa to anyone who is thinking of heading over to Phuket.
Rosalyn Cross, Australia
A most fantastic time had by all
We all had a lovely time and you have a top group of professional and courteous staff – the villa was very well presented, spacious and comfortable and we all loved our time there. We spent 8 nights at Villa Jasmine with a combined family of 6- talk about the WOW factor, from the beautiful ensuite bedrooms to the outstanding infinity pool with a wonderful view. the very helpful staff organised our taxis every day , no matter what time we wanted them and we availed ourselves of the wonderful cooked meals at night – no shopping or cooking, I felt like one of the teenage kids who didn’t lift a hand in the house! A most fantastic time had by all and it was always a pleasure to come back to the comfort and privacy of our own villa at the end of every day out. A beautifully presented Villa and always clean and tidy. Lots of space for 4 large teenagers and parents. The infinity pool was absolutely divine and always clean, just what you need after a day out while your waiting for your dinner to be cooked by the lovely inhouse cook. We availed ourselves of their offer to shop and cook for us and were never disappointed by the quality , service or unobtrusive manner of the wonderfull staff. The whole family had a wonderfully relaxing stay at this beautiful villa. Getting around for the 6 of us was easy , a mininbus was called for us at any time by the friendly and helpful staff at the villa. It was a shame to leave, but the kids were sending us broke with their shopping!
The Riggs and the Cassidy’s, Australia
Such beautiful meals cooked for us each night
We had the most amazing time! Thank you so much!! The villa was absolutely beautiful, with the most awesome views!! And your staff were so lovely!! I could not praise them enough…their cooking was better than any Thai food we’ve ever had before and it was so relaxing to have such beautiful meals cooked for us each night! And they looked after us like we were royalty!! Always friendly and smiling and kind!! We will definitely come back and will recommend your villa to our friends and family! Thank you so much for making our stay so special!! Best holiday ever !!
Chris Dyer, UK
Villa Malee was lovely
Many thanks for your note. We had a great time. Villa Malee was lovely and the staff were exceptional. It’s a holiday that will live with us all for a long time. The golf was great. Thanks for everything and we plan to visit Thailand again in the not too distant future.
the winner was the food that Nok Noi and Mon dished up
We loved our stay at Villa Malee,everything was exactly how we hoped it would be. The staff!! WOW!!! Noi the manager was brilliant organising restaurant tables, excursions and taxis which 1 in particular became the star of the show a small lady who drove a white toyota 4×4 she was brilliant,she may not be your staff but our family loved it when we saw her pull up in the drive. The pool man sorry never caught his name but very efficient, pool was always cleaned before we were up. What can i say about the stars of the show Nok Noi along with Mon, the house was kept spotless. She had the knack of watching what snacks etc we were buying whilst being out and about and when we ran out some more appeared without asking. But without exception the winner was the food that Nok Noi and Mon dished up, which was as described BETTER than anything we ate out. Breakfast was varied and perfectly prepared. Lunch and dinners were superb,never a problem and always served up at the time Nok Noi said it would be. You should be very proud of your staff they made our holiday very special. Who knows we may be in contact again next year to come visit phuket ,villa malee and Nok Noi!!!!
Gayle Smith, Australia
They made our holiday a very special one
We had an absolutely delightful holiday in Thailand and enjoyed the Villa Malee very much. We would particularly like to acknowledge the staff Yoong, Joom and of course the delightful Noi. They made our holiday a very special one and could not have been more helpful, considerate and so hospitable. And of course their cooking was so delicious and better than any restaurant. Please pass on our great thanks to them.
Shannon C, Australia
Kids: they felt sad going home!
Wow! No words can describe the amazing and relaxing time we all just had! We all have decided that resorts are not for us anymore! All the staff are attentive and spoilt the kids rotten! We have def made life long friends! My son and daughter have come home and in just a week have learnt to count to 12 and say many phrases in Thai! Something that would not have been available in a resort! I have come home with a excercise book full of recipes! As parents we really had a holiday where we fully relaxed and it was a total stress free adventure! And the food!!! You will be hard pressed to find food anywhere as good as what you will get at Villa jasmine! The children summed it up when they said ‘they felt sad going home!’ And if they could take the staff home In their suitcases? Or could they have a holiday now at our houses?? Def a home away from home with life long friends made! Guarantee Villa Jasmine 110%
Christine Reed, Australia
Your staff are a credit
We had a fantastic time at Villa Malee and I will be making post on trip advisor. Your staff are a credit to you and when we next come Thailand we will certainly be staying there again
King Wang, China
I wish I would have chance to stay here again
My family had a wonderful stay in this villa! Brian is a very kind owner! Thanks for all the staff of the villa! The villa is very quiet and beautiful ! I wish I would have chance to stay here again!
Jenny & Phil Stanley, Australia
Thank you so much for a great stay
We had an awesome stay at your Villa, it was fantastic and every one of us loved it! We could not fault a thing, actually. Your staff are fantastic in every way, and we couldn’t believe how good the food was !! We have told plenty of people about it and will provide information to anyone who wants it (one couple have already asked). Thank you so much for a great stay, and we would love to come again one day when we return to Thailand.

A fantastic time at Villa Jasmine
We all had a fantastic time at Villa Jasmine. Your staff, Sia and Noot were lovely. We hope to go back soon.
Anna White, Malaysia
We will definitely recommend Villa Jasmine
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Jasmine. Nok Noi and Sia were fantastic and Noi was very helpful whenever we called her to arrange a driver. The breakfasts and dinners were also fabulous. Golf and the spa were also a hit. Thanks very much indeed. We will definitely recommend Villa Jasmine to other friends in Kuala Lumpur.
Jamie Kernaghan, Australia
Enjoyed every minute of our stay
We have arrived home safely ! Back to very cold Adelaide !! We had an absolutely fabulous time ! The villa is fabulous and all of us enjoyed every minute of our stay ! The pool was gorgeous and the kids spent most of their time in it ! Your staff are also absolutely wonderful and made sure we had anything and everything we needed !! The only thing I could suggest would be nice plastic drink ware for drinking around the pool !! (Owner’s comment – New top quality plastic drinks ware already purchased!) I hope very much that we will be back !! Thank you !!
Sukhi Gill Tour, Hong Kong
We will definitely return some time soon
Our stay in Villa Jasmine was the most amazing and fun times of our lives. My parents who were travelling out of Hong Kong and India for the first time, totally loved it and said that they would like to do this every year. The kids still talk about the villa as they totally loved it there. Khun Noi was always available and very helpful with everything and anything we needed. Sia and her assistant were so efficient and kindhearted. We miss the food and the breakfast (feast) we had each morning. The villa was always very clean and well-maintained. We will definitely return some time soon and enjoy the spoiling we received at the villa. There is not even one thing negative we can say about the villa. Whenever we get together, we still talk about our stay at the villa and how much fun we had. All in all, we miss being spoiled by the staff of the villa.
Christina Cheang, Singapore
An unforgettable experience
Thank you for welcoming my family to your beautiful villa. It was certainly the most wonderful stay we had as a family. Your staff were fantastic and Khun Noi made sure everything went smoothly. The food cooked was of very high standard and staff service very warm. A lot of Khun Noi contacts for in villa massage, minivan rental etc was wonderful and price was very reasonable. We do hope we can make this a yearly event for the family. Once again, we would like to thank Khun Noi and her team for making our stay an unforgettable experience. We have passed your contact to our friends who are looking to visit Phuket.
Payman Willi, Switzerland
That’s the place to return to
We all got back home well and very relaxed. Although we are all working again this week, we still feel fresh from the good time we had at your Villa Malee. We were thinking about points to complain about your staff/service/house, but honestly speaking we cannot find a single one! We all appreciated the fact that we were left in peace and could enjoy the day at the poolside, but as soon as we needed something, Nok Noi and Eh were there to assist us. All of us, my wife, her family and my good friend Thomas, we are all not big travellers, we prefer staying at home in Switzerland. But we all said that if one day we need again a relaxing vacation, that’s the place to return to. I have taken a video of the whole house and showed it to 3 working colleagues of mine, I think they’ll also be interested to come one day
Duncan Wilson, UK
Made very special by the service and attention
Just a quick note to say we had a great time at Villa Malee made very special by the service and attention of the two girls, please thank them again from all of us, I hope the money I left for them shows our appreciation (I was not sure what was appropriate) sufficiently. Thanks to you both for your help during the booking process and our time at the villa. We had a great time and look forward to coming again soon.
Ingrid and Christophe, France
Everything was perfect
We are back in France after having spent a wonderful holiday in Kata. We wanted to thank you and your staff because we had a wonderful stay in your Villa Jasmine. Everything was perfect. We have rented villas in Phuket on many occasions in the past, but we have never before experienced service like we received from your staff. Noi is fantastic she has a real zest for life as a manager, nothing was too much trouble for her when we arrived. We were cooked delicious food, the best we ate during our stay. Please send our greetings and thank you to you and your team. Do not change anything . Everything was perfect.
I would recommend the house to any group or family
From our arrival being met by the lovely staff to our leaving, the stay was magic. We had 5 adults and a 6yr old and the house was just perfect for us. Nothing was too much to ask for. The ladies cooked the most fabulous food and kept the house spotless. They arranged our transport, even tuk tuks and private drivers, in-house facials and beauty treatments, private boat to Phi Phi island with a picnic basket. They even had a bike for my grandson to ride. The rooms were very private and huge each with it’s own ensuite. The pool area was great and we spent a lot of time out there. The beach was a few mins by tuk tuk and very Spectacular. I would recommend the house to any group or family who want an enjoyable holiday. The overall food bill for 10days was probably equivalent to two dinners at a restaurant for all of us!!! option for large families and much more economical than three rooms at a hotel.
Casper Christophersen, Denmark
Everything for us was perfect down to the last detail
We had the most exiting, awarding and relaxing vacation of our lives. Everything for us was perfect down to the last detail. We are all struggling getting used to being in Denmark again. We all miss Sia and Nusch and the wonderland vacation we were just on. We are looking for the Villa on Tripadvisor so that we can make a great review because Villa Jasmine and the staff deserves it. Sia and Nusch taught me to cook and god I miss their food. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation, and one small note for you: I overheard my parents talking about their 60th birthday in 2016, so I’ll might write to you again soon!
Howard Gues, Australia
We all agreed we would recommend Villa Jasmine
On behalf of the rest of our mob I would like to thank everyone on your staff including you for making our holiday very enjoyable. We all agreed we would recommend Villa Jasmine to anyone wanting to visit Phuket.
Allana and family, New Zealand
We were blown away from the moment we walked in
Thank you for your email. We had the most beautiful trip thank you and everything about the villa was perfect. We were blown away from the moment we walked in the door and your staff are exceptional. I was a wee bit nervous moving away from the hotel with most of the other wedding people but what a great decision was made. Villa Malee was a wee treasure and we devoured every moment of being there. It really catered to us all. I know my Dad was thrilled with the service and location after just having a hip replaced he needed the r and r (hence no golf call this time). The kids loved Nok Noi and Young (as did we) and also the pool!!! So nice to see Buddha’s head from the pool too. Food was so delish, we only ate out twice in 16 days! Thank you for the Boat house suggestion, the setting is so beautiful there. The cocktail evening was great too and the girls did a super job with the food. Appreciated the exercise runner too and even managed a run up and down the hill a few times. Had to make up for all the beautiful food being consumed. We really really really appreciated the early check in and out. It made our holiday seamless and so relaxing!!! Thank you so much for having us and also your staff for the most memorable trip. We fell in love with Thailand and Kata. Great place to spring to other places. Oh my Buddha we had a great time!!
Jade Loricco, Australia
We had an amazing time
We stayed at Villa Jasmine for 5 nights on our family holiday.We were a party of 8 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of room. We were very hesitant initially as we were unsure about an internet booking. But this place was truly beautiful. The villa had an amazing view and yet was still close enough to everything. We hired scooters for the 5 days which cost us $7 AU per day and that was how we got around. We did coastal trips, Zoo visit (wouldn’t recommend) we went out in the evenings. The boys rode into Patong but I was not game with the kids on the back. We had the two of the loveliest ladies looking after us, the food was amazing and cooked fresh for us every day and sooo cheap. Nothing was too difficult. We had ladies come to the villa for massages (same prices as on the street 400bht) our staff would call them and they would be there within 10 minutes. The pool was beautiful, the only downfall was the tiles around the pool were a bit slippery for the kids but we just laid towels out for them to walk on. Kata is a great place to get out of the hustle bustle of Patong. We spent 5 nights in Kata and 8 in Patong and loved them both equally for difference experiences. The Villa is set up off the main road in the hills at the foot of the Buddha and has big security gates which made us feel very comfortable. I highly recommend this place for something a bit quieter. If you have any questions I would be happy for Brian to pass on my details as he did this for me to speak to someone who had previously stayed at the villas.
Many thanks for a great holiday
We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Jasmine and your staff were amazing. I would recommend it to anyone and will place feedback on the website too! Andy’s parents thought it was one of the best holidays they’d ever had. The children all absolutely loved it and Siya in particular was amazing with the kids. Her cooking is truly fantastic. Many thanks for a great holiday and a wonderful start to our Christmas break. We’d love to come back some day.
Paul Yeung, Hong Kong
We are planning to come back soon
Thank you for providing us your villa for our holidays. It was a wonderful holiday. Without your villa and the hospitality of your staff, I am sure we would not have had such a great holiday. We are planning to come back soon. Looking forward to another wonderful holiday.
May I wish you and your staff a merry Christmas and a very happy new year. Please send my warmest regards to Noi
The food was brilliant
The food was brilliant, and Noi and co were always happy to provide any assistance we needed. Thanks very much for a great stay and you will be hearing from me in the future for further holidays.
Cris Masi, Australia
Our holiday was magnificent
Villa Jasmine was perfect for us and our needs, the staff were amazing we have nothing to fault.
We are looking to come back late in 2014 if you could give me a rough quote for a seven night stay for up to eight people that would be great.
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.
Food was fantastic
We had a great holiday, food was fantastic and we had a very relaxing stay, and the house was perfect.
We will be back ! There are 2 babies arriving in 2014 so maybe not till the year after, friends with babies/ toddlers here are also interested especially as all the toddler safety stuff is there
Angela, Heazlewood, Australia
Khun Noi and the girls were truly so helpful
Sorry about the delay in my reply, but I’m still trying to catch up. We had the best time at Villa Jasmine. It was a wonderful place to stay and your staff are amazing. There was never anything too big or too small. Cia even learnt how to make home made hash browns which were absolutely yummy. The night I had to take Emily to hospital Khun Noi and the girls were truly so helpful. I would recommend your place to anyone and we will certainly be back
Prudence Marler, Australia
Thanks so much to you and the wonderful staff
My family and I had a wonderful time at the villa. We all said that we would love to come back and stay again hopefully. The staff were incredibly helpful and lovely and helped to make my mum and dad’s first trip overseas very special.
We had a wonderful time thanks so much to you and the wonderful staff at your villa.
Chris Sonn, Australia
It really felt like a proper holiday
We were extremely pleased with the villa: 1. The villa is stunning, really good quality accommodation, clean and well kept. 2. The service team (villa manager/ Nok Noi) have been always available, open to our requests, and very riendly. 3. The food was to die for in a good way!
We had a magical time altogether in Kata Beach and the villa was the perfect venue to catch up with our friends for around the world. It really felt like a proper holiday to get picked up from the airport, received like royal family in a stupendous villa with lovely staff to look after your every needs. Last and far from least, on top of the breakfasts, the dinners have all been banquets of high quality Thai dishes we all have enjoyed.
You have made everything possible, and if we had such a good time, it is thanks to you and your attention to detail. Again many thanks for your welcome, Villa Malee will be recommended!
Mark and Elaine Wrigley, Manchester, England
If you are thinking of visiting Phuket and staying in a villa, you just have to stay here!
What can we say, truly magnificent! I’m always cynical about what people write in reviews, I tend not to do them as a rule. But trust me the experience that our family has had at Brian’s villa has been beyond our expectations and some. 4 late teenage kids, all with different wants, needs and desires. All accommodated for by Brian’s team!
So let me explain, Khun Noi the Manager, she just sorted anything and everything what we wanted out. Boat trips, rides on elephants, meals in posh restaurants, taxis, tut tuts, Thai massages etc etc. Nok Noi, the live in house keeper and cook, fantastic. We want breakfast at 6am, no problem, at 10am, no problem, can you get a taxi, no problem. Evening meal, 6, or 7 or 8pm , not a problem. Pack lunches, not a problem. Dry cleaning sorted. But the food, the quality and the value, superb. 6 Adults, two weeks, breakfast, evening meals, all our drinks(beers, soft drinks etc), snacks(consumed at late teenage levels!), purchased by Kun Noi daily then prepared, cooked and served etc all for £400. This meant we wasted no time during our holidays shopping and cooking etc. that said our Daughter had several Thai cooking lesions and had come away knowing how to make Thai fish cakes, satay sauce etc.
As for the villa, well it is seasoned and settled in an established area. It felt real, everything as spotlessly clean etc. it was exactly as described. Would we recommend it, you bet! Would we go back, no question. If you are thinking of visiting Phuket and staying in a villa, you just have to stay here!
Michelle, Michael, Carol, Steve, Peter and Carolyn, Richmond, South Australia
Incredible service provided by your wonderful staff
We would not hesitate in promoting your villas to our friends and also for our hopeful return in the future. We thank you so much for an enjoyable holiday, amazing staff and great food cooked by Sia and Beer. Please pass on our thanks once again for the incredible service provided by your wonderful staff.
Juanita Richards, Queensland , Australia
such a wonderful place to holiday
We had a fabulous time at Villa Malee. The Villa was wonderful. Very relaxing. It was very hard to leave it to do anything else. Nok Noi made the most fabulous food – my 4 year old daughter ate at least a mango a day and she kept her well supplied! And one of my teenage daughters now has me trying to replicate her spring rolls and stir fry. It has been very interesting.
My four year old has told everyone that the pool was the best part of her holiday (followed closely by Disneyland – nothing else we did in our two week holiday rated a mention).
About the middle of the week, the girls found us a wonderful bus driver and he took care of us – I gave him my list of what I wanted to do and he just scheduled it for us – before that we were having a few communication difficulties with the various drivers.
Thank you so much for keeping such a wonderful place to holiday. Please give the girls our praise for a wonderful week. They kept the place spotless and quietly satisfied our every need.
Susan Panettieri, West Victoria, Australia
cooking was sensational
We have just returned from our fantastic week at Villa Malee.
I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our week at your beautiful Villa. We all felt thoroughly spoilt by Noknoi and her attention to all our needs. Her cooking was sensational and it was so lovely to return to the Villa at the end of the day to a beautifully cooked dinner away from the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach and the like.
As far as we are all concerned this is the only way to holiday! Once again thank you to you and all the team. We hope to see you again next year.
Will recommend Villa Jasmine to our friends
We all agreed that Villa Jasmine was a lovely place to stay. We thoroughlyenjoyed our week there and of course loved playing golf at those 3 beautiful courses with you and Prada. Tony was proud to break the record of you never losing to your guests! We were so well looked after by Sie and Ros, with Noi overseeing things.
Their cooking is delicious and we made the most of it! They were very attentive, but also gave us lots of privacy. They keep the Villa exceptionally clean and tidy as well. We will hopefully be back again one day and will recommend Villa Jasmine to our friends.
Thanks again Brian for all your kindness in arranging our golf at such good rates and for a lovely holiday in beautiful Phuket.
We booked golf package...
We enjoyed the villa. Staff was really excellent, very good cooks, nice efficient and very discreet at the same time.
We booked golf package through one of the contact available in the binders; it was also very nicely organized. Noi also was very nice for the check out.
Keren & Niv, Tel Aviv
We loved the place and the staff.
We definitely enjoyed our stay in Villa Malee, everything was great. We loved the place and the staff. Thanks again for everything. Looking forward for the next visit.
We had a lovely relaxing time.
Thank you very much! The Amenities, Food and hospitality were fabulous. We all enjoyed our stay at your wonderful villa.
A wonderful chance to unwind and be looked after
Our group of eight friends stayed at Villa Malee during the first week of February and it was just fantastic. The owner, Brian Phillips, had thought of everything. Spacious bedrooms, well equipped en suites, high spec modern kitchen, comfortable lounge area, sound system, wifi, pool with jacuzzi and a view to the sunsets over the sea. Best of all was the staff – Noi , who is the most superb Thai cook, a maid and a pool man. Everything ran like clockwork and we spent a week being totally spoilt. It was a marvellous experience and it was all managed by another Noi ( a popular Thai name) who could probably run the country given half a chance.
Our host took us golfing at Phuket Country Club, fortunately on an overcast day, and we loved the old world colonial style of the clubhouse. It was a great treat, even though we had no chance of winning a single hole from Brian. Fortunately for us we did not put any bets on.
I would highly recommend Villa Malee and Villa Jasmine – it gave us a wonderful chance to unwind and be looked after and we would go back again in a heartbeat
Adrianna, New South Wales
The pool was great!
Noi and her team are fantastic! The food was better than the restaurants we went to and much cheaper! Service at the villa was wonderful ( can we take Noi home?), and the pool was great! We are all having trouble re-adjusting to our normal lives. Thanks very much and we will be back!
Rose & Patrick, Sydney, Australia
This was by far our best overseas trip & will definitely be back
We all had a wonderful time at your Villa & will definitely be recommending it to friends etc. I am so missing Ros & Sie with their delicious cooking – we so enjoyed all their tasty meals & having the meals prepared was a bonus for me especially – it meant I got a good break too.
I plan to send a letter to the Saturday Morning Herald for the travel section recommending Private Villas Phuket – will let you know if it gets published! I feel sometimes one is quick to criticise but not praise enough so hence my letter.
We all feel that this was by far our best overseas trip & will definitely be back – sadly will have to wait for Patrick to be employed before we can plan anything! Please pass on our appreciation & thanks again to Noi & her team as well.
Brian Grossman, Chicago, USA
Everything was outstanding
My stay at Villa Jasmine during November 2012 was my second in two years. Once again, everything was outstanding. The accommodation, food, transportation, service and activities available nearby were top notch. The owner (Brian P), manager (Noi) and their entire staff are delightful to work with and extremely focused on making sure your trip is a great one.
Meals cooked by the staff were again as good if not better than food at top Thai restaurants. They also did a fine job cooking a western style dinner for us on our final evening – grilling steaks, chicken and prawns poolside. The villa is a great place for a pool party like this.
Overall, I’ve never come away from a vacation so relaxed – even more so than my visit last year. And while I usually like to travel to new places, I can’t wait to return to Villa Jasmine again!
Everything about the service was amazing
We had the most wonderful time at the Villa and will now find it very difficult to holiday any other way! Noi and Yoong were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble ever. The meals they cooked were superb and everything about the service was amazing. We felt like we had our own angels floating around!
Paul, Hong Kong
Such a comfortable villa and excellent services
Thanks to you, Noi and your staff for providing us such a comfortable villa and excellent services whilst we were in Phuket. Without the villa and the hospitality of your staff, our vacation would not be as wonderful as it was. We will come again soon definitely. The services provided by you and your staff are highly recommended by all of us. Keep up the standard.
Stephen Jacob, Perth, Western Australia
A fabulous holiday in Villa Jasmine
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Villa Jasmine, Nok Noi and Ros really went out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday. We would like to return next year.
Rocco Schirripa. Western Australia
A wonderful stay and we would thoroughly recommend...
Just a short note to say thanks to you and your staff. It was a wonderful stay and we would thoroughly recommend Villa Malee to our friends. Look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
Liz & Jeff Ricapito, Shanghai, China
Will happily recommend Villa Jasmine to our friends
We had a wonderful time at Villa Jasmine. The housekeepers were wonderful cooks and the food was outstanding. We couldn’t have been more pleased and will happily recommend Villa Jasmine to our friends. Phuket was great and we really enjoyed Kata Beach. You clearly have found some of the best help to run your villa. Khun Noi and her staff were outstanding. Thanks for a great vacation. We would surely return in the future.
Malcolm Morris Brighton, Australia
The kids loved the Thai cooking, and so did we!
I have finally found a few minutes to email you my thoughts on our wonderful stay in the villa. The standout for us was the dedication and politeness that May and Jum displayed to us though out our stay. You are truly lucky to have staff that represent you in that way and we were lucky to be the recipients of their attention. We did invite them home with us bit even that they politely declined! You really do cater for all the needs of families, and every comfort and amenity was well thought out and appreciated. The kids loved the pool, we loved the complimentary massages, the kids loved the TV and we loved the wireless Internet. The kids loved the Thai cooking, and so did we! Notwithstanding our kosher requirements, the girls used the products we provided creatively and sensitively. We only saw Noi at the beginning and end of our trip and she was lovely. I’m sure that the other staff behind the scenes are also as friendly and warm, and we began to think that the taxi drivers your staff also called were employed by you as they were equally friendly and accommodating. One final thing. From the moment we first made contact with you, you were not only prompt and responsive but also very accommodating. We will certainly recommend you to friends and family travelling to Phuket. We still keep talking about our wonderful overseas holiday, so thank you for being part of it!
Carmen and Vince Lucifero, NSW, Australia
Wonderful holiday both relaxing and cultural
We just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely villa with us, we had a wonderful holiday both relaxing and cultural. Phuket was a lovely place to visit with so many faces. The villa was great we wanted for nothing, May and Youi do a terrific job so well done on finding such wonderful ladies. I have written a favourable review on trip advisor and would like to Thank you again!
Caroline K, Victoria, Australia
Nok Noi’s cooking and housekeeping were exceptional
Our trip allowed my family to spend a wonderful carefree, relaxing holiday in your lovely Villa Jasmine. We had a superb holiday and were thoroughly looked after by your welcoming and hard working staff. Khan Noi was available at phone request and very helpful with all requests. Ros and Nok Noi’s cooking and housekeeping were exceptional and allowed us total relaxation as well as being well fed!! We felt no need to venture out for our meals as we had the opportunity with your menu list to try something different every day/night. Your airport transfer driver was also wonderful. We have already started to spread the good news about your Villa’s and highly recommend them to family and friends. We hope to have the opportunity to stay with you once again. You cater well for the infants needs also . Overall a fabulous stay.
Marne. Melbourne, Australia
All agreed we would definitely come back.
Thank you for your follow up on our stay at Villa Jasmine – what a beautiful spot! We had a great time and can’t commend your team on the ground highly enough. The service, information, follow-up and cooking was amazing – we felt very spoilt and relaxed on our return to a very cold Melbourne. All agreed we would definitely come back.
Caroline (Victoria – Australia
Welcoming and hard working staff
Thank you for the opportunity to purchase the Groupon Voucher, which exposed your Villa to us. (I previously was not aware of the private Villas) It allowed my family to spend a wonderful carefree, relaxing holiday in your lovely Villa Jasmine. We had a superb holiday and were thoroughly looked after by your welcoming and hard working staff. Khan Noi was available at phone request and very helpful with all requests. Ros and NokNoi’s cooking and housekeeping were exceptional and allowed us total relaxation as well as being well fed!! We felt no need to venture out for our meals as we had the opportunity with your menu list to try something different every day/night. Your airport transfer driver was also wonderful. We have already started to spread the good news about your Villa’s and highly recommend them to family and friends. We hope to have the opportunity to stay with you once again. You cater well for the infants needs also but we didn’t take a stoller/pusher with us, This may be a handy addition to offer at the villa but overall a fabulous stay.
We especially loved the cooking class
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and your staff for such an amazing holiday. The girls and I loved our stay at Villa Jasmine and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. The house staff were absolutely lovely and very discreet. Noi was very quick to handle all our requests for taxis and day trips. We especially loved the cooking class that was included in our stay! The food that was prepared for us was of excellent quality and some of the best food we sampled on our holiday. The villa is amazing and exceptionally clean and well maintained. Thank you for having us, and we hope to see you again!
Jason Church, Brisbane, Australia
Absolutely Unbeatable Holiday… we will be back!
From the moment we arrived at Villa Malee we were treated like royalty! Khun Noi and her staff were brilliant, and cooked by far the best Thai food we tasted on our Holiday! Our Chef May was fantastic, all meals were prepared exactly to our liking, with produce she sourced for us fresh from the local markets. Our party of 7 people were served authentic Thai dinners for the 3 days we stayed at Villa Malee, for less than what it cost us all to go to a restaurant for one night! Unbelievable!! The Villa itself is fantastic, the owner Brian has kept it in top shape, with no expense spared at all. The view from the pool is breathtaking, with some of the most beautiful sunsets I think I have ever seen in my life. Villa Malee is truly a secluded oasis in one of the most beautiful places on earth. If you are thinking of travelling to Kata, be sure to stay at Villa Malee!
M B, UK
We had a very enjoyable time
As usual things were a bit hectic once we got back, hence the delay in replying. We had a very enjoyable time. We found the Villa comfortable and the resident staff attentive. The food in the Villa was excellent and our stay there was much more relaxing than our week at the Marriott because the children could eat early and go to bed and we could then enjoy our evening meal in peace.
Exceeding its own high standards
We recently completed our third visit to Villa Jasmine and it keeps exceeding its own high standards. The house is perfect for those travelling with children – parents who need somewhere for them to run around and play during the day and somewhere for the adults to dine/relax when the rugrats have retired for the night. The house easily sleeps 8 (3 double and 1 twin room, all en suite). Having staff to cook and clean for you makes for a very relaxing holiday and enabled us to spend quality family time together (leaving aside trips to some of Phuket’s great golf courses).
The staff are incredibly friendly and unobtrusive. Challenge them to prepare any Thai cuisine and they will present you with something that would match anything from a 5* hotel. It is also worth pointing out that all food and beverages (soft drinks and beer) are bought by the staff at local prices, so there are no nasty surprises when it comes to settling up at the end of your stay. As guidance, our total bill was approx. $50/day for food, drinks and laundry for 4 adults and two messy kids (and the first beer was usually opened indecently early). That would barely cover breakfast at a hotel. We love staying at Villa Jasmine – it feels like a home from home and I would highly recommend it to family and friends.
Gary Mander UK
Cooking was first class
Yes we had a great time thank you again. I think the boys loved the golf but will miss the caddies this weekend! I will get everyone’s views and feed them in but generally the villa was fantastic and the staff were exceptional. May’s cooking was first class and enjoyed by all and the discreetness of the staff was amazing and you hardly knew they were there. Exceptional.
David Aston, The Netherlands
A wonderful 10 days in Villa Malee
Just a short note to say that we had a wonderful 10 days in Villa Malee. We could not fault anything in the time we were there and were very sad to leave. You have a great team, with Noi and May, and the food was simply amazing. It was also an amazing coincidence to find our great friends from Bahrain staying next door in Villa Jasmine !
Henry McMullin Japan
The food and service was outstanding
The week in the Villa was fantastic. The food and service was outstanding. We hopefully will be going back in the future. Thank you very much for the use of Villa Jasmine. I hope we were not much burden on the staff !

A fabulous holiday
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we had a fabulous holiday. The villa was wonderful and we especially enjoyed the pool!
Bei Li Hong Kong
We all had a great time
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say thanks for letting my friends and me stay at the Villa Jasmine. Everything worked out very smoothly. We all had a great time and hope to return soon!
Kath. Archdeacon, Australia & India
15 people absolutely loved their time at the Villas
Everyone within my family of 15 people absolutely loved their time at the Villas. We were able to share time and also have plenty of individual space. The staff were just great in that they were able to anticipate our needs at all times. To arrive and have dinner shortly after we arrived was just wonderful. The villas are maintained at a maximum standard. This was important to us.
Neil Williams, Australia
The villas are very spacious
I would to thank you and your staff for the fantastic time we had while staying at your villas, (Via a booking made by my brother in-law Michael Archdeacon). By booking both the villas gave us enough room to enjoy our own privacy or spend time playing games, swimming and just having fun as a family. The villas are very spacious and sometimes that is not easy to find with a large family wanting to stay in one place. The food was some of the best Thai food I have had including here in Australia and Thailand (can you thank the girls for me), the pools where very clean and used by all almost nonstop.
When we return to Thailand we will certainly look you up again as we all have agreed it was just a great time from day 1 until we departed. Once again thank you.
Larisa & Michael, Latvija
Great service and lovely memories
We are just back from our trip. We want to say thank you for this wonderful vacation, for great service and lovely memories about Villa Malee, Phuket and Noi. Looking forward to come back again!
Penny Halliday, South Australia
A fabulous stay in Phuket
I would like to thank you for a fabulous stay in Phuket. As we come from the Hospitality sector ourselves we appreciate the effort that your staff went to to make our stay as comfortable as it was. We arrived very late (our time) but the girls had a meal ready if we required. This was very nice of them. As it happened we all went straight to bed!!! We had the meal the following day for lunch. It was very nice.
We enjoyed your very comfortable home, the pool, especially the kids, and the two girls, Ros & Noi who looked after us so well. It was particularly good for our family with the two small children. We ate out a couple of evenings and then decided that the meals at home were much better, so we asked the girls to cook for us. Their meals were fantastic and much better than in the restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful stay and rest assured we will be giving your contact details to other people coming your way and if we come again we will be staying with you.

Kun Noi and Team was Excellent
We guys had a wonderful time at Phuket. Our experience with Kun Noi and Team was Excellent. Your Villa was nice and Overall the entire Experience was sometime to remember for Long time.
Brian Grossman – Milwaukee, USA
The property, food and hospitality are all incredible. We cant wait to return
Villa Jasmine exceeded our expectations. Everything was made easy for us, making for an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The owner and manager are very professional and easy to work with. Our couples experience included the following: – Personal pick-up at the airport by a professional driver in a modern mini-bus – The 2 housekeepers, maintenance man and manager, Khun Noi, all greeted us upon our arrival. All are incredibly nice people. – We were immediately given a tour of the property, provided drinks, a bottle of champagne, flowers for the lady and a cell phone with Khun Noi on speed dial available 24/7. – We were asked what time we would like our dinner cooked for us…they had planned a special meal of butterfish and duck curry dishes whenever we would like it cooked. After taking time to unpack and relax a bit, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner. Both dishes were outstanding – see photo! – Every morning, we were able to selec t a time for breakfast and preferences…eggs, bacon, fruit, fresh bread, pancakes, french toast, etc…whatever you would like, they will get it.
The cooking by the two housekeepers was amazing. – A cooler near the pool was kept stocked with a variety of beverages…including my preferred beer. – After traveling for a week in asia already, I needed laundry service…and 2 days later, everything came back clean and very neatly pressed. – If you would like lunch and/or dinner, they will also cook for you…whatever you would like. They have a recipe book with both Thai and western items, including some photos for ideas. They even have a menu of wines available at the local shop that they will gladly get. – Transportation was a breeze whenever we needed it. Just call Khun Noi to arrange. Kata Beach is nearby. We enjoyed The Boathouse restaurant one evening. – Golf courses are also within 30 minutes (and more are 60 minutes away). Red Mountain is incredible (but expensive), Loch Palm is very nice and more reasonably priced and Phuket Country Club is a good value and third choice for variety at a lower cost. All were very enjoyable to play with great caddy service. Also, the restaurants at the courses were very good for post-game lunches. – Massage is everywhere…for about USD $10/hour or less…in or out of the villa. We did both but I strongly recommend hiring in. A 50% Thai / 50% oil massage for 90 minutes was great. Khun Noi will arrange, even on rather short notice. – Weather was great. – On our last morning, the entire staff sent us off.
Final settlement for items consumed and groceries/wine purchased on our behalf was very professional with itemized bills and receipts. The cost was very reasonable and fractions of what you would pay for meals, snacks, drinks, etc. at a resort. – Return transportation included to the Phuket airport was very prompt and professional. Overall, I cant say enough good things about our stay at Villa Jasmine. Im already excited about trying to plan my next visit!
Sherene Hartland, Australia
We will definitely return :-)
We had an amazing time in the villa. Your staff are lovely, really made our trip so enjoyable. They are also very professional and the best Thai food in Thailand (no kidding!!)
Seppo Kallio, Finland
Better food than in restaurants
We had a very pleasant holiday, as always in your villas. Everything went smoothly and staff was superb. Especially Khun May was so sweet and she is a very good chef. Better food than in restaurants.
And we were pretty lucky with the weather, only few showers and thunder storms during the week.
Last time there was some 3G internet and now it was proper (fast) WLAN, great improvement.
Overall our holiday was great and I definitely will recommend your villas to my friends and colleagues.
Yong Lim, Western Australia
We would recommend your villa to anyone.
My friends & I had a wonderful time at your villa. Khun Noi & her staff were the best. We love their authentic Thai cooking.
Meagan Mcneill, Australia
No request was too difficult
We all had an absolutely fantastic trip and our stay at Villa Malee was a highlight. Noi and her team were amazing – no request was too difficult and the food was incredible. We will certainly be recommending the Villa to our family and friends (I already have a friend who is being me to go back next year!).
Steve Geddes – U.K.
Swimming late at night in the pool
We had a fantastic break at Villa Jasmine and would be more than happy to recommend to friends and family. The quality of the Villa and the service provided from the ladies certainly made the trip a bit ‘special’!
Having a clean and well maintained pool was a great addition…. especially having 2 children who are part mermaid!! Swimming late at night in the pool is a memory that will stay with them as this is not an option back at home. We had concerns that being a good walk from the town would be a problem but we hired a 4×4 which gave us the freedom to come and go as we pleased, again efficiently sorted out by the ladies.
Overall, faultless and wouldn’t rule out another trip in the future.
Bruce and Angeline Forsyth, Australia
Certainly recommend the Villas to our friends
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Villa Malee and Kuhn Noi, May and the other staff were first class. I cannot think of any improvements I would suggest and I will certainly recommend the Villas to our friends.
Mark Keddie, West Australia
We had an absolute fantastic time staying at your villa.
The two housekeepers were a joy and their cooking was out of this world especially the duck curry. There is not one negative to say it is all positive.
Finella Oakley, Australia
The house itself was perfect
We had an amazing holiday at Villa Malee. When I look back now it was a true break. From day one Noi met us and let us know that they would look after us our group no matter what.
Firstly the meals were outstanding. Reading the previous testimonials I was a little sceptical about the standard compared to restaurants.
No doubt the food that Ros and Mai prepared were delicious and far superior to restaurants. Thank you ladies. I am still salivating over the pork with kaffir lime leaves –(could Ros please share her recipe?)
The house itself was perfect. Usually when you go on holiday, you expect the beds to be not so good, but these were extremely comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nicely appointed and kept scrupulously clean at all times. It was wonderful to enjoy a tasty breakfast and go to our rooms to find them already made up ! Also the little things, such as always plenty of ice for drinks as well as cut up limes for our obligatory G+T’s every afternoon. Honestly we did not have to do a thing.
All the staff were fantastic really and were also great with the children. Noi helped us out with any queries over local transport and was always available for any questions, no matter how minor. The two families have returned very relaxed and we cannot wait to plan our next trip and hope to book both houses.

Adrian Usher . UK
We had an absolutely brilliant time in Villa Malee
Myself and all my guests absolutely loved the villa. What a fantastic place. The rooms were large and really well appointed. Confess that the running machine didn’t get much use but the pool certainly did. It is a stunning venue in which to relax. We used it as a base to play golf and do some diving out of Chalong harbour. What surprised us was how much we enjoyed just lying around the villa doing not very much but looking forward to the next fabulous meal. Our memories of the villa will be dominated by the gorgeous cooking of May and your staff. It was an unexpected but wonderfully welcome aspect of our holiday that we enjoyed the evening meals so much. I would unhesitatingly recommend this villa to anyone thinking of booking it.
Brian, on a slightly more personal note, can I thank you for your generosity in being so accommodating to Dickie and Simon with regard to the golf. They were hugely impressed not only with the courses they played with you but with the standard of golf displayed. Dickie is somewhat traumatised by his golfing display but he still enjoyed it.
In summary I would absolutely recommend your villa to anyone . We had a fantastic time and I’m already missing the place. I’m not sure when we’ll be able afford to come back but if I ever get the chance I would be back in a shot.
Caron Johnstone, Australia
Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay in the Villa Jasmine
All of us enjoyed our stay at the villa very much. None of us wanted to go home.
The service received from all staff was above exemplary. The breakfasts were yummy, we had a few evening meals cooked for us and they were delicious, better than a lot of the restaurants we ate at. Nok, Ros, Noi and May just couldn’t do enough to help. They were always smiling and so friendly. I was very tempted to bring one of them home with me. I would love to eat their cooking each night.
I will definitely return as too the others. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
Karen Hsu – Hong Kong
We really enjoyed the holiday.
It’s a wonderful villa for us. It’s the first time we stayed in a villa and it’s very different from staying in a resort. Thanks for the help by Noi and her 2 staff. We had the best Thai food in the villa.
Barbara Jones – Australia
It was just the ticket!!
Well what can I say – after six years without a holiday it met all my expectations, the villa was perfect and the food fantastic, read two books, relaxed, and did the touristy thing for one day-perfect, that was just enough, two nights in Singapore on the way home with drinks at Raffles-what a way to finish the whole thing was excellent.
All I can say is the food that was prepared for us by Noi & May was fantastic, in fact we said if she wanted to come to Australia we would set her up in a restaurant, so make sure you look after the excellent staff you have in those two – otherwise I will pinch them.
I would like you to email me your rates for Aug/Sep 2012. Many Thanks and please thank Noi & May again for me after the recharge of my batteries – it was just the ticket!!!!!
Alan Geddes – Shanghai
I will be back to your villa one day soon!!!
I very rarely can say that I enjoyed every minute of a holiday but the time in your villa was very special, relaxing and tranquil by comparison to my normal daily life!!
Now, I have taken my jacket off, put away my umbrella after a wonderful day in the office and having a beer, listening to the cacophony of horns on the road outside! Shanghai is wonderful! I will be back to your villa one day soon!!!
Donald Keene – South Africa
Kindness, smiles and outstanding service from the staff
My family of eight (six children) had a wonderful stay of 11 nights at Villa Malee during July 2011. What made the stay so special was the kindness, smiles and outstanding service from the staff, the sumptuous meals home at the villa and the nice location close to Kata Beach. Kun Noi and the staff went out of their way to attend to our every need, even if it was something small or was after-hours. For my family, this was a much better option than staying in a hotel.
Jon Marigundon USA
Thank you for letting us for using the Villa Malee!
My friends and I are very pleased and we enjoyed the time and accommodation. Definitely, we will be sending you another email when we get back to Phuket.
William Pflugradt and Friends USA
All I can say about the stay at the Villa Jasmine is WOW!!!
Everything about it was just amazing and beautiful!! The staff was a great service and the food that they prepared for us was just tasteful. Paul the driver, was great helping us get to our destinations and translating for us when needed. The rooms where just beautiful and the greetings that we received when we showed was like being at home again. Anyone who comes to Phuket needs to stay at your villas. We loved the view of the hillside of the villa looking downwards at the beach of Phuket. Its secluded and in a private area like we wanted and needed. Overall the Villa Jasmine was a 10 in my book!! Thanks again for everything and tell Noi thank you so much again.
Christine Ricateau, Jordan
We had a FANTASTIC stay at Villa Malee
You have created the absolute paradise there… the staff is fantastic and May’s cooking!!!!!! WOW!!!!
Everything is so well organised, food for the kids,soft drinks by the pool, I forget now but we have been thinking a lot about how well you have organised everything. Kun Noi is so helpful and kind, we had a fantastic time and we will never enjoy again a stay at a hotel!
I am already preparing for finding another opportunity to come back, this time with my sister probably, hopefully next year at the same season.
Christoph Merz, Hong Kong
We hope to be back again in the future.
I meant to write to you earlier to thank you for the wonderful time we had in Kata. The inlaws as well as the kids were very happy and we all enjoyed it a lot. Noi, Ros and the other lady whose name I already forgot were very nice and extremly helpful, not to mention the delicious food they prepared for us every evening. We particulary appreciated the mobile phone and the cordless bell which made it really easy to call if we needed something.
Again we had a great time, the reception was very warm and the staff was great. We hope to be back again in the future.
Carl Ravenhall, UK
I’m not sure how we can match it in future!
I think it’s fair to say all the family had a fantastic time in Villa Jasmine . The villa was perfect for our needs and the service provided by Ros and Noknoi was faultless. I’m not sure how we can match it in future!
Mike and Penny Tanner UK
The villa surpassed all expectations
Back in UK now having all had a wonderful time in Villa Malee. Wanted to get in touch to tell you haw much we all appreciated our break. Noi and May saw to it that everything was 5 star.
They could not have been more accommodating and helpful to us. Every challenge was met with a smile and a special “your welcome”! The villa surpassed all expectations and everything laid on to make the holiday so good.
We will just have to visit Thailand again as we loved every minute and every mouthful of May’s delicious cooking.
John Gillett, UK
We all had a great time in Villa Malee
Please thank your staff again for their consistent friendliness, hospitality and wonderful cooking. I hope to return again next year.
We all enjoyed our stay
Every thing was fine at Villa Jasmine and Villa Malee, we all enjoyed our stay at the villa hope to see you next time . Thanks for organising it.
Jean Claude Gigoi, France
The food was the best i’ve ever ate
We would like to thank Noi, May and all the staff for this wonderful week, their kindness, their smile made our vacation a perfect moment. I used thai food for 15 years but the food was the best i’ve ever ate. Also, the place is very quiet as we could relax during the day. My family and i would definitely come back to your villas!
Ty Cerminera, Australia
I would recommend to any group
The holiday was great, I think we may over indulged a little, but when in rome , you know what they say. Staff was awsome at all times, you could leave stuff in bedroom, money etc and it was never touched. Really puts ur mind at ease knowing the staff are trust worthy. The meals were great, Villa is great, beds are a little soft, other than that it was perfect and i would recommend to any group for sure. Very private and it was hassle free. The girls were also very helpful.
Del Catella, Hong Kong
A very happy holiday in Villa Jasmine
Just a quick note to say that we had a very happy holiday in Villa Jasmine. Khun Noi, Noknoi and Ross and the gentleman who came in to clean the pool were all very good and everyone were impressed with the level of service they provided. They were very thoughtful and attended to all our needs (and some whims) and we could not thank them enough.
We discovered that we could catch the rugby game in one of your TV channels so everyone just stayed put which worked out very well.
We also managed to go around Phuket a bit – elephant ride, sea canoeing, white water rafting and of course Kata beach – all of them thoroughly enjoyed. Your pool provided excellent time for bonding and relaxing.
Jill Murphy , Singapore
A beautiful experience for our whole family
Thank you to you and your staff for making our first trip to Thailand so enjoyable. It was just a beautiful experience for our whole family and the villa was just perfect. We have decided to christen it our home away from home! We have already formulated plans for another visit in June, but for longer this time! You will be hearing from me soon in order to confirm dates etc.
Thank you once again and please pass on to your staff how much we appreciated their peaceful nature, extraordinary efficiency, amazing cooking abilities, and their general happy demeanour as they dealt with such a busy household.
John Dale UK
Villa Jasmine lived up to expectation
I am delighted to say that everyone really enjoyed the holiday. Villa Jasmine lived up to expectation and fully reflected what was advertised on your web site, without exception. The highlight was of course Ros, who was just fantastic. She and the rest of the staff went about their task in a pleasant and unobtrusive way, which made life very easy and restful. She prepared several evening meals for us and we were delighted by the quality of the cooking and presentation, definitely restaurant standard.
A good time was had by all, so thanks to you and Noi for your organisation and management. I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Jasmine to anyone who was interested.
Alan Shelley, China
We had a wonderful wonderful holiday
We are back in Shanghai now and I have time to write and thank you for our wonderful time in villa Malee. We are fortunate enough to have been able to stay in some very good hotels when we have been away – none of them could compare to our stay at Villa Malee.
The best bit of the holiday for me were the staff, they made beautiful authentic Thai meals, never did I see anything but pleasantness from them towards each ourselves and each other, they were discreet yet always available – I find it difficult to put into words how good they were. When we were in Bangkok we spent more on 2 meals than we did for 9 days in Malee for All our food and drinks and we did not hold back.
To sum up we had a wonderful wonderful holiday and would go back again rather than stay in a hotel – any hotel. Many thanks to yourself, Khun Noi and the staff ( absolute diamonds ).
Anne Marie Aujla and family, UK
I can honestly say everything was perfect
We are very lucky , that every christmas I fly my whole family off to far away places, this year decided on thailand, I did extensive research and found villa Jasmine, and what a find.
I can honestly say everything was perfect, we have had some amazing holidays in the past, in the best 5 star plus !! all over the world, but as a whole I think that Villa Jasmine has now moved to no 1!!. Everybody agreed it was amazing. The villa is so clean and beautiful it is faultless on every level. We decided to alternate night outs for eating in the evening, but by the third night my Dad, made an announcement that he wouldn’t be leaving the villa again, “why are we eating out when we have got the better cooks and better food right at our finger tips!! he was right , after that we spent every night eating at the villa, it was wonderful. They even cooked a full turkey lunch on Christmas day including all the trimmings, we all had to admit it was better than our own at home! on some occasions they even made 6 different meals on the table, they also can now make a mean rice pudding after only 5 minutes instruction.
Please tell me how they have the ability to make us not know they are there,? we were worried about having people in our house, but it was quite the opposite, they knew exactly the right time to be around and the right time to disappear.
Jason Seow Singapore
Excellent service by staff, with fantastic view
We booked both Villa Jasmine and Malee which are side by side. There were 16 adults and 2 infants. Even with such a big group, the staff made our stay a pleasant and memorable one. The services were first class and we need not bother a single thing at all. We merely stated our needs and they were all arranged for without much hassle.
Khun Noi, the manager and all the staff made our stay so warm that all of us agreed that the next time we stay in Phuket, it will be with Villa Jasmine and Malee. Thank you guys!! You were great!!
Carole Green, UK
The staff are fantastic
I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay in the same villa throughout our holiday we had a fantastic time. The staff are fantastic, we loved the sound system, and the running machine was such a bonus. Hopefully we will return soon.
Robyn & Glenn Morrison – UK
We will be recommending the Villa to our friends and family
We had the most amazing time and Villa Jasmine was everything we expected and more! The staff especially Ros were so good to my children, husband and our grandparents. Ros is the best cook ever and we didn’t realize until the last few days how much cheaper it was to get her to cook (as some nights we ate out) as when we got our bill for the food we did eat, we were pleasantly surprised that we were only charged for the actual groceries cost not for Ros to prepare and serve (we didn’t actually realize this) her food was so good and better than any restaurants. The staff really were great and it was nice to have Noi only a phone call away with a mobile phone she provided us with so when we got into a muddle (we did a few times with getting to places) we simply just called Noi and she sorted what ever it was straight away. We loved the pool and the large open areas of the villa and the location was only 200 baht by tuk tuk to the beach so it was easy for us to get around.
Thank-you again it was was a fantastic trip and you should be very proud of your staff who are doing an excellent job with guests as usually I am hard to please and I have no complaints for you what so ever! It was wonderful.
Thanks again and we will be recommending the Villa to our friends and family.
Andy Riley, England
We had a perfect holiday and are definitely coming back
I would like to say thank you to you and your staff at Villa Malee, the house and girls were amazing, nothing was too much trouble , the food and friendliness was way beyond what we expected. The Kata Beach resort was the best we found in Phuket. Thanks for a wonderful vacation in your beautiful house.
Rebecca Sargeant – Australia
We had the most beautiful holiday ever!
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your villa. We had the most beautiful holiday ever! Your staff were fantastic, so much so we wanted them to come home to Australia with us. We are looking to make a booking for same time next year for both villas for about 3 weeks.
Willy Burm – Singapore
We had a perfect holiday and are definitely coming back.
Sarah Burm, Singapore
Villa Malee is a wonderful place
We had a great time there, it was a great experience. Villa Malee is a wonderful place on a very beautiful island. The food is also awesome.
Aaron Tong – Hong Kong
We had a really great time in Villa Malee
Thank you. Baa and May were really nice and also Khun Noi was very helpful. Food was great as always
Greg Young, Australia
All was perfect as always.
Once again we had an absolutely fantastic time.
Rob Stubbs and Family, Macau
All the staff were wonderful
Just a quick note to thank you for the time in Villa Malee. All the staff were wonderful and the food was superb. Our families all enjoyed the villa and would like to pass on our thanks.
Nick Mutch, England
The personal touches of the Villa team on my wife’s Birthday made the trip so much more special. The trip back to the UK was nothing but eventful with cancelled flights back to the UK. Luckily BA took care of us in the end and we were only delayed by a few days.
Zoe Trubridge, England
We would definitely go back to Villa Jasmine
We just got back yesterday and wanted to let you know we had a really great holiday the Villa was lovely, so relaxing. We cannot praise Ros highly enough. Her cooking was fantastic, we just let her choose what to cook so that we experienced many Thai dishes that we probably wouldn’t have chosen in a restaurant. All dishes were fantastic and perfectly cooked, not too spicy for our palates but often with Chillies added so we could spice it up if we wanted. The breakfasts were always really good as well. The rooms were very comfortable and everything was kept impeccably clean and tidy by the team.
One of our friends was ill while we were there and Ros really was helpful in getting medicine and arranging a doctors appointment and even cooked him some chicken soup. If we get the opportunity we would definitely go back to Villa Jasmine.
Ralf Schalfirt, Switzerland
The villa is perfect
We came back yesterday. So, still quite jet-lagged and the temperature drop from 40 C to 10 C here is desperate. Indeed, we had a wonderful stay in your villa. The villa is perfect and your staff is very caring. Excellent cuisine! We will definitely recommend your villa to friends.
Stefan Dehaar, Singapore
We truly enjoyed the culinary highlight
We had a very good time in Phuket and enjoyed your Villa Malee. Especially the service of your staff (K.Noi, May and Baa) was exceptional and we truly enjoyed the culinary highlight on the second evening of our stay. I hope we didn’t embarass your staff too much.
With regards to the golf courses, we enjoyed all three (3) of them, we played: Red Mountain, Phuket Country Club, Blue Canyon (Canyon)
In terms of scenery and maintenance I believe Red Mountain is best course to play, but I have to admit that I like Blue Canyon lay-out bit better.
Phuket Country Club always a fun course to play, but they have to do something about maintenance.
Irene Kendall, Australia
The villa met all our expectations
We had a wonderful time at Villa Jasmine and special thanks to Ros, Mon and Noi. The villa met all our expectations and we have been vigorously recommending you to friends and family. We hope to visit again in the future.
Catherine Boutayre, Australia
We hope to visit again this year
We had a lovely holiday. The villa was everything you promised, as were the staff. We hope to visit again this year. If it is not this year then hopefully next year.
Sarah Dubrey, United Kingdom
We had such a brilliant time at Villa Jasmine
We got back safely after the long journey. Not too cold just loads of rain! We had such a brilliant time at Villa Jasmine and it was just what we wanted and needed.
My main concern was always for our little girls, but the house was so comfortable and homely that they felt at home straight way. My next concern was going on holiday with the in-laws but again it worked out so well and I think its because we were not on top of each which we would have been in a hotel!
May, Ghan and Baa did such a wonderful job looking after us and the worst thing about coming home has been having to think and cook again! And I`m having withdrawal symptoms from May`s cooking and Thai food.
Thanks again , we will be recommending your villa to all our friends.
Phil Spears, United Kingdom
The place was fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful
Just got back after a great time in Thailand. Please accept both mine and Mick’s thanks for making everything at the villa so wonderful. The place was fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful. The children were safely kept away from the pool by some pot plants sourced by Khun Noi. The maids were really helpful and extremely discreet, and the food cooked up was delicious.
Once again, thank you for the time and effort shown in making our holiday so special. As for returning to Phuket, we intend to make this a regular event. So much so, that whilst in Villa Malee, we met up with some friends who were staying in Bang Thao and bought both families back to the villa. Despite them staying in 6/7 star luxury, they preferred Villa Malee for the location to Kata, Chalong & Patong, the maid service, and the overall package. We are going to meet up in a couple of weeks to discuss getting all four families renting both villas at the same time, at some point in 2010.
Modena Sandford, UK
Very impressed with the Villa Malee
Just to say after returning from Thailand my family were very impressed with the Villa Malee. I myself found standards high with charming helpful Thai staff. My son Nicholas made several visits to oversee details of the pool etc, the pot plants were perfect especially with the small children using just the steps as access. Having visited Thailand many times I have always stayed in hotels but would recommend your Villa to friends.
Lisa Guit, Singapore
The staff were excellent
Just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to stay at your villa. The staff were excellent and we all had a wonderful time. Also thank you kindly for the delicious wine – it certainly put a good start to our night.
Sonia Fuller, Singapore
Thank you also from me – we had a great time; the villa is stunning, the staff were amazing and the food they prepared for us was delicious! I will definitely be back at some point and will pass your details to anyone I know wanting to hire a villa in Phuket.
I can also add that the villa was very clean, I loved the fact that you provided products in the bathrooms (such as the Pantene – a nice touch) and even though the staff were cleaning throughout the day, they were so discrete you never saw them but everything was miraculously great! Brilliant, brilliant!
Andrew Carroll, U.S.A.
I will be definently be staying with all you again!
I just wanted to email to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit!! Everything was absolutly perfect with the Villa and the staff!!! Khun May’s cooking was absolutly amazing! We all enjoyed it so much! All the staff were so helpful! I cant wait until I have the chance to return to Phuket, because I will be definently be staying with all you again!! Thanks again!!
I shall definitely recommend the villa
We had a lovely time at the Villa Jasmine and shall definitely return in the future. May was a perfect host and her cooking was truly amazing. I shall definitely recommend the villa to my friends.
Satinder Singh: U.K
We all enjoyed the stay at the villa!
Especially the catering service, by your chef, May! We definitely will come again! Thanks once again.
Glen & Luke: Australia
Our stay was fantastic, thank you.
The villas were everything we were expecting and the girls did a wonderful job to make us comfortable (and well fed) each day. Praise all round from our entire group ( all eight of us) . Thank you for helping to make our stay in Phuket memorable. We would certainly be happy to recommend you to others planning a holiday in Phuket.
Francisco Marigundon: U.S.A.
The service is top notch.
Just want to say “thank you” for your help on the Villa. We had a great time! The service is top notch. By far the best time I had in Phuket. I highly recommend to any travellers to stay in the villa vise a hotel. Hope to be there again next deployment.
John Kemmett: Malaysia
The villa was fantastic
Myself and family had a great time in Phuket . The villa was fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful . We all had a relaxing and enjoyable few days. The kids are asking when are we going back !!!
Mohammed A. Al Ammari, U.A.E.
Your villas are really fantastic with everything.
Scenery, food, services and kindness of employees especially MAY with her delicious food & now the air-conditioning. Thank you for your offer & I and my family hope that we can make it this year.
Van McLaughlin, U.S.A.
Favorite vacation haven
I do not know when I will get a chance to return to Thailand and my favorite vacation haven in Villa Malee, but it is in my plans to return again in the future. When the NY Stock Exchange tops 10,000 my booking will not be far behind.
Michelle Nisbet: Australia
Thank you so much, we all had a wonderful stay.
The villa catered for all our tastes but I think my daughter Ruby had the best time of all. She constantly wandered around the villa calling out to May who is her favourite person. The meals May cooked for us were superb! They were far superior to anything we got in the restaurants there, including Mom Tri’s Boathouse. The villa was well set out for the little ones, and we felt secure to let Ruby run around, knowing she couldn’t get into too much trouble. Thanks for everything, I have been raving about your place to all my workmates who seem keen to consider the villa for their next holidays. I hope to visit again in the not too distant future.
Jeremy Dixon, Bahrain
Villa Jasmine was pretty much perfect for us
To be honest with you, Villa Jasmine was pretty much perfect for us. The services provided by your staff were precisely our reason for choosing Villa Jasmine and what set your villa apart from others on our short list. I know that as a big group we may have been demanding and are very appreciative of their hard work especially with their needing to take care of, and impress their boss at the same time!!! We have yet to make our holiday plans for next year but I am sure that Phuket may well feature so we may take you up on your loyalty club discount.
Allan Dreyer: Australia
This should be on your list !!
I had the pleasure to experience this most wonderful holiday location to celebrate my birthday. Anyone looking for a great holiday, this should be on your list !!
Martin Kerrigan: Australia
Our stay in Villa Malee was very beautiful.
The staff were wonderful as was the cooking. The amenities are beautiful and all in good order. It was a wonderful holiday for our family and I wish you ongoing success with the property.
Greg Smith, Singapore
We had a fantastic time
The villa was fantastic, the staff there were fantastic, the Fortuna fantastic, everything! I’ll definitely be spreading the word that everyone should go and try it.
Philippe Rouch: France

Everything was perfect
My friends and I all enjoyed staying in Villa Jasmine and appreciated our stay. Everything was perfect and we really have no negative comments. Should we return to Phuket, we certainly would take your house again. I also would be happy to give your name to any friends deciding to go to that area.

We had a fantastic time at Villa Malee
May was friendly and discreet and as you said, an excellent cook. We ate only Thai food and May was able to meet the different needs of the family. (spicy-not too spicy.. you know with kids), but still letting them discover a new world in food.
Everything was clean and perfect and we were impressed by the high standard of construction and of design. If you are looking for suggestions for even more perfection, the only thing that crossed my mind was that I would have liked to have the choice to save some water by changing towels and linen only when I thought was needed. This is now done in most of the best hotels and it helps my conscience.
The children loved Thailand. We spent 3 nights in a remote resort on Phi-Phi island, in Balinese-style wooden bungalows which were very beautiful and comfortable but without any mod-con such as TV or any distractions powered by electricity. The bungalows were buried in the jungle yet by the sea, so snorkeling, looking at corals and chasing fish kept the children busy. We particularly enjoyed exploring the corals around Koh Phi Phi Lee and Bamboo Island, which are outstanding, even better than those seen around the Similan Island (so says my brother who went diving there).
We spent some time in Phang-Nga where we experienced the real Thailand away from mass tourism. We visited the underground cave underneath Elephant Mountain, a temple in another cave with lots of monkeys, went into the jungle and mingled with ordinary Thais. We ate sometimes in little local restaurants for under 400 Bhat for 5 and also in a fabulous establishment by the river popular with the local elite. Guests arriving in large SUVs are served in discreet booths in bamboo at the foot of a huge cliff, high on stills on the edge of the water with many beautiful exotic plants.
Karin Fussing: Finland
We have had a great holiday.
We enjoyed our stay in the villas. Kun May is fantastic. She did all she can to please everybody. And she is a very good cook. We hope that she can relax a little bit before the next guests arrive. We hope to come back next year. Thank you for a very nice holiday. I have just told the people I work with about the houses. They where very impressed. So maybe they will contact you.
Lars Ketner: Finland
We enjoyed our stay very much
May is perfect and really made a nice difference. Please give her our best regards and thank her for her efforts.
Philippe Rouch: France
This is the most beautiful holiday
Splendid Villa, reception and services exceptional, top-of-the-range services, calm absolute, serenity, let you rock by the reception, the kindness and competences of the staff, always with your listening and available permanently…..Big kisses to May and the staff.
You do not need to do anything, May is there to organize everything. The rooms are exceptional, the beds very soft and immense, the splendid bathrooms!! In a word, this is the most beautiful holiday that we could have abroad, thank you Brian for all that.
Concerning the meals in the villa, they were quite simply the best meals than we could find anywhere during our stay. May’s cooking is exceptional, the experience is first class. You want to stay in Phuket? Do not hesitate, book Villa Malee!!!
Gertraud Hinterreither: Austria
It was a fantastic holiday
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Malee really very much. It was a fantastic holiday, the house was perfect for all 8 people and also the children enjoyed it very much. They had enough space for playing football – but sometimes they shot the ball into the neighbour’s garden. But it was never a problem.
May is a wonderful person and an excellent cook. As many other guests have written, it was so comfortable staying for dinner in the Villa, so we only went out 3 times in the evening. Especially after a golf-day (and we played 8 times) we enjoyed staying in the villa. Also Donald and Tjoop of VIP Golf organised our golf-trips perfectly.
We would like to spend our next Christmas holidays again in Phuket. But this is not possible for the other family , so we have to book a hotel, because your Villa is too big for 3 people. But we will recommend your villas to all our friends and if we can find some friends to come with us, we will book your villa again.
Grace (Comments Via Agent)
The highlight of their trip
Grace and her friends loved the villa and told me it was the highlight of their trip. They gave excellent comments on your staff and said it was the best food they ate during their entire trip. If they wanted something, your staff went out and bought it immediately, and were quick to serve it. Your staff was also very quick to fix a leak in a sink or a toilet, I believe in the master bedroom.
Nick Kearsley: UK
We had a fantastic time.
The villa was great, the food and service was excellent.
Our holiday was very nice
...and everyone enjoyed in Villa Jasmine. Please, let May and her team know that we were very satisfied.
Van McLaughlin: China
Took very good care of us
The stay was fantastic. The villa was again a comfortable retreat which was especially beneficial this year as I try to recoup from open heart surgery. May and her crew took very good care of us. This included coordinating our travel, internet usage, laundry and of course the wonderful meals that they prepared. I want to and will visit again without hesitation. As this is our last 7 months in China we will have to take the trip from the USA next time which may be quite costly and time consuming. I guess we will have to stay two or three weeks to make it worth while!
Laurence Ireland: UK
We had a great holiday
Villa Jasmine was great and May was fantastic as you said. They could not have done any more to make us comfortable, we had a great holiday thank you.
Michael White: UK
We had a brilliant time at the Villa Jasmine
If we are coming down to race again in Kata, we would definitely use you again and recommend friends and family.
Sampo Verkasalo: Finland
We enjoyed our stay in Villa Jasmine very much
Sorry for not replying earlier. We enjoyed our stay in Villa Jasmine very much. Thank you and tell thanks to May also. We flew Phuket-Munchen-Helsinki, and everything went smoothly.
The Kilmaster family: Alberta, Canada
In a word, our stay at Villa Malee was outstanding
The family enjoyed the villa and facilities enormously. I must make special mention of May and her team of ladies separately as their standard of service and attention to detail was of the highest order, in particular the evening meals, which were beyond our every expectation, absolutely fabulous.
The travel plans for the family were disrupted in a minor way due to the problems in Bangkok, with our eldest daughter and her boyfriend having to stay in Phuket for an extra two days and catch a different flight out to a different destination order to get home. They were not too disappointed about the extra stay – in fact the rest of us were a little envious.
We all found Phuket to be a fascinating place, and did our best to do and see as much as possible whilst there – bungee jumping, elephant rides, cobra show, Fantasea, Thai boxing, lots of beach time and of course the shopping experiences will be remembered for a long time. Thankyou for a fantastic holiday, and please pass our further thanks to May and her team for an outstanding effort in looking after us. We have already begun to sing the praises to others and hand around your business cards.
Richard Fairhurst: UK
Looked after us so well
Khun May and her team looked after us so well and her cooking was every bit as good as you had told us. And, somehow, she always managed to sense when we had finished a meal or that we had vacated our rooms and they were ready for cleaning, without being told.
Dr. James Griffiths: Australia
We look forward to coming again soon!
I have been trying to come up with some constructive suggestions, but I’m afraid I can’t think of much. Your staff, especially May, were wonderful. The villa ‘book’ has lots of useful information about the running of the house, and there are lots of useful pamphlets left from previous guests. Many thanks for your assistance, and we look forward to coming again soon!
Mohammed A. Al Ammari, Saudi Arabia
I Admire your deep Concern towards your Business
The whole Family Enjoyed their Trip as well as the Villas, the food, and May and Her Assistants, both of them were very Polite and very Nice . I have already passed your name and the Villas information to a lot of my Friends who will get in touch with you hopefully soon. Many thanks and Best Regards.
Greg Young: Australia
It was fantastic once again – May is a real gem – Is it too soon to book for July/August 2010? Unfortunately we are unable to come in 2009, but definitely wish to stay again in 2010.
Emma Robinson: UK
The food was excellent as was the standard of accomodation
Our group of 4 hired the villa for a week at the end of a trip to Beijing and Hong Kong so a welcoming, relaxing retreat was what we were looking for and that is exactly what was delivered. Sadly the weather was incredibly bad throughout the duration of the trip but that is in the lap of the Gods. The staff could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent as was the standard of accomodation. I would strongly recommend this villa to anybody contemplating its hire. Thank you to Brian and his staff for providing such a beautiful property to my friends and I.
See Fawn Lau: Hong Kong
We had an excellent stay at the Villa Malee
The whole family enjoyed the Villa and Khun May and Baa’s hospitality, even Moo the driver who made us feel like royalty, when he chauffeured us around Phuket. We are seriously thinking of renting Villa Malee again sometime. Thank-you very much for your very detailed arrangements, such as preparing our dinner the first night when we arrived.
Cathy Booth: Australia
We were treated like royalty
Well, what a lovely touch of paradise you have there in Phuket!!!!!!!!! And what lovely, lovely staff. Where on earth did you find such gems?? From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. It is a credit to you and your staff. Boy I’d like to sell my house and move to Phuket myself. Can I ask will you ever move there or are the villas investments? We have been to Phuket 4 times over the past 15 years and always stayed in hotels. No more.. Khun May cooked up fabulous meals and canoeing was organised with no problems whatsoever. Thank you so much for a lovely stay. I will be recommending to anyone who travels to Phuket to stay at your villa. Thanks once again for everything running so smoothly and nothing left to chance.
Jeetesh Patel: UK
The food she had prepared is better than some restaurants!
My group and I had a great time in the Villa. May was excellent. I had planned to celebrate my 3 year anniversary with my girlfriend and May took care of things and it was a wonderful night. She booked all our cab service and the Boathouse restaurant. And the food she had prepared is better than some restaurants!
Tan Meng Seng, Malaysia
Villa Malee was nice and cosy
Thanks! All of us had a great time in Phuket, especially my kids. Villa Malee was nice and cosy, and services provided by Khun May and gang was pleasant and cordial.
Tom Mutch: Hong Kong
We booked out both Villas
We booked out both Villas and celebrated two birthdays during our stay. We also had guests coming from as far a field as the UK, Western Australia and Hong Kong, all arriving at different times. We thought the logistics for arranging this would be a monumental task but the team in Kata handled it perfectly. They were patient, polite and as attentive as you could hope for. And as everyone says, the food truly is fantastic. Don’t bother going out. Trust me on this one. You have a fantastic pair of properties. We ended up with an adult pool and a kids pool, with aunts and uncles press-ganged into entertaining nieces whilst the parents relaxed over a couple of cold Singha. We ate all together in Jasmine every night with a couple of old collapsible tables added on either end for lunch and dinner. I have a couple of awesome photos I should send over – seated dining, family style, for 16 people. Brilliant. The trips to the beach were also fun. Tuk-tuks were easy to get back.
Melanie Robson: Australia
We had a lovely time at Villa Jasmine.
The food was wonderful and the atmosphere very relaxing. Thanks for everything.
Philip Lau: Hong Kong
Diificult to fault the villa
The holiday was great and we throughly enjoyed the villa and the hospitality extended to us. We found it very diificult to fault the villa and Khun May and her team.
Dianne Pickard: UK
I am recommending the villa to all...
What a fantastic holiday had by all…the villa was absolutely fantastic… May and Baa was even more fantastic. This was probably the most relaxing holiday we have ever had, we could not have wanted more. May and Baa were so lovely, they work so hard you would never know that they had another family to look after in the other villa. The food they cooked was the best Thai food we have ever had, every night was a gastronomic experience, and the children’s food was lovely too. We are Thailand sick this week and feeling very sad we should have stayed longer. We will definitely be back, sooner rather than later. It was so great not having to make any decisions other than what we were doing that day, and what we were eating! Just what a holiday should be like. What more can I say. I am recommending the villa to all our clients and friends, but they had better not want it next Easter as that is when we wish to come again! Thank you for making the villa and all the extras so special.
Claire George: Australia
We really did enjoy our stay at Villa Jasmine
... and felt that the Villa was very suitable for a group like ours. ( 6 adults and 5 children , 3 of whom were under 2 years old).
We particularly enjoyed the meals and thank May for going to the extra effort of preparing and serving separate dinners for our children – which allowed the adults to indulge in a (semi-peaceful), yummy Thai dinner a bit later on. This was an unexpected bonus! I also was particularly impressed with May and Ghan’s cleaning ability. Things were always clean and tidy (which is a mean feat when you have 5 children and six lazy holiday makers in a house!) Thanks again to you, Ghan and May (and all those behind the scenes) for all your did to make our stay at Villa Jasmine memorable. We have been (and will continue to) tell others about our stay.
Donna Chang: Hong Kong
We had a great time at Villa Jasmine.
Khun May and her team were great. Khun May is such a good cook we didn’t go out to eat once! The villa itself was very comfortable and relaxing. We hope to come back again!
Simon and Family: Perth, Australia
Cooking was out of this world
Once again thanks for the “loan” of your house and staff. May is an absolute treasure, she also said we were “easy” guests, I hope so. Her cooking was out of this world we were all surprised at how often we ate at the house.
Julie Marley: Coventry, UK
Our stay at Villa Jasmine was wonderful.
Your villa is beautiful and May was a gem – nothing was too much trouble for her and our stay was so relaxing after the hectic pace of Bangkok. We have already told all our friends and put details of the villa on the hospital (our workplace) notice board. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. I’m sure we will be back!
Paul Coope: Kowloon, China
The Villa was superb and met all expectations.
Given the fact that we’ve been fortunate to travel widely and stay at some fantastic places this is praise indeed. The food, in particular, was memorable and both your staff were helpful, professional yet unobtrusive. Our daughter had a wonderful time and this was the main purpose of the holiday. If we get the opportunity we would certainly book again.
Raili Jaatinen: Finland
Staff are wonderful
We had a great vacation in Villa Malee. The villa is very nice, staff are wonderful, please send our best wishes to them. We will recommend Villa Malee to our friends.
Adrian Muir: New Zealand
Villa Malee was definitely one of our highlights
We have just arrived back home – Villa Malee was definitely one of our highlights of our 1 month away. May and the rest of your staff did a mavellous job of making us welcome and May’s cooking was every bit as good as you claimed.
C. Ruane: Thailand
A fantastic two week holiday
We have just stayed in Villa Jasmine and had a fantastic two week holiday thank you, we all loved it and hope to return one day, the food and staff were amazing!!
Mirjam Boom: Norway
It was really a good holiday
We had a great time in the beautiful house and with your great service it was really a good holiday. We had lovely weather and the kids had a good time at the beach and the pool. The diners were a feast.
Mr & Mrs Pulsakowski: England
It is a lovely villa and pool
We had a very enjoyable stay at Villa Jasmine. It is a lovely villa and pool. Whatever we asked May for she always replied “yes” with a smile. May and her assistant prepared and cooked us some great meals, kept the villa nice and clean at all times and kindly arranged our transport on request.
Mr.and Mrs. E. N.: Yorkshire, UK
We had a wonderful time in your villa.
Your staff, especially May, were superb and answered all our requests quickly and efficiently. The food was top notch and on the Friday she cooked lobsters for us which my wife said were so good. Thanks again for your help.
Margareta and David: Sweden
It exceeded our highest expectations!
Khun May is a pearl and she really does never use the word “no”! Villa Jasmine worked perfectly for a three generation party. We enjoyed Khun May’s Thai cooking nearly every evening but preferred to have our lunches at the beach (Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach and The Phuket Yacht Club beach). She really spoiled us in every respect and you may rest assured that she fulfilled all our wishes with a smile! This was our first trip to Phuket but definitely not the last one. We have already started to spread the word about your houses among our friends.
Van McLaughlin: Shanghai, China
The Villa stay was outstanding!
May and the crew totally spoiled us. I came out the hero for grabbing this opportunity. The only downside was that we had to leave and move to a normal hotel. My family is calling it vacation #1 and vacation #2. If I have any influence we will come back to Villa Jasmine again. Thanks for all your help and personal attention!
Greg and Lynne Anzelc: California, USA
The food experience was the ultimate dining pleasure.
May is a fantastic chef and we still miss her wonderful dishes. Both girls were extremely professional and sweet. The establishment was clean, beautiful and enjoyable. However, the highlight was May’s cooking. Her dishes were superb, and we enjoyed every morsel (and wish she could come home with us). You have a gem in May.
Eugen Nygaard: Norway
Thank you for a wonderful time at your Villa
We would very much like to come back soon.
Bill and Elaine Woodland: Washington, USA
The house and pool were beautiful
We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Villa Jasmine . It was just what we were looking for. The house and pool were beautiful. Khun May and staff were so efficient that we hardly noticed their presence, but at the same time everything was tidied up. It was so nice not to have to worry about where to eat, etc. Instead, while we had our before dinner cocktails, we enjoyed the smells from the kitchen and then just sat down to eat. Then quickly and quietly, everything was cleaned up again.
David Phillips: Singapore
Everyone had a great time staying at the Villa
A very enjoyable holiday. The ‘family friendly’ aspect of the Villa was great as we had 4 kids under 10yrs old – no issues at all with safety and security. Khun May is an absolute superstar and made sure everything ran very smoothly. She did everything possible to make sure that our stay was as hassle free as possible, and her cooking skills are quite outstanding. We all agreed that, apart from the Boathouse, the food prepared by Khun May and the team was the best we experienced for the entire week.
Adrian Sacco: Guangzhou, China
Without a doubt the best family vacation in years
Right from your arrival you are made to feel welcome by the warm greeting from the staff. The food is 5 Star and there is no need to have dinner anywhere else. The flexibility and assistance of the staff in particular May made this a very relaxing vacation. Without a doubt the best family vacation in years.
Miles and Gaynor Macfarlane: Australia
It was exactly what we were looking for
We had the most wonderful time at Villa Jasmine, it was exactly what we were looking for. It was so relaxing. Wonderful surroundings. Great food and May and the team looked after us extremely well. We couldn’t have asked for more…. We thoroughly enjoyed the Honeymoon Special.
John Madsen: Hong Kong
Very pleased overall with the Villa
I consider myself a world traveler, and I was very, very pleased overall with the Villa. The pool and view were a large draw for us. Kuhn May was always there at the right time to serve up something special or take care of transportation. We opted to stay at the Villa for the majority of two out of three days. The weather was stunning. Imagine that during the rainy season. We had a great boat outing to the Koh Phi Phis. Kata was a great beautiful beach.
David Nicholson: Dubai, UAE
A very relaxing time
Thank you, home safe and had a very relaxing time even if too short. Your Villa is very comfortable and I can’t think of anything to improve it at all. The girls were great, fantastic cooks and so very friendly and helpful. I hope we didn’t over impose on them. Many thanks.
Anne-Louise Hayden: Sydney, Australia
I didn't have to lift a finger!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Jasmine, what a beautiful part of the world! Our journey to Phuket had been so stressful but as soon as we arrived May and the staff made us feel right at home and we settled into Kata Beach life instantly. I cannot say enough wonderful things about May and the girls, they truly are a fabulous asset to you. I did not have to lift a finger, and May was always there for us when we needed her, and the kids just adored her and Baa. So much so, that my youngest, Charlotte, thought that Baa was coming home with us! (wishful thinking!). All in all an absolutely fabulous, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable stay! Speaking of which, we would like to come back again in 2008!
Fi Murray: England
We loved the pool and saw some beautfiul sunsets
We had a fantastic time at the villa, we loved the pool and saw some beautfiul sunsets. There was plenty of space for our two families and the villa had everything we could need. May and her team were lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful, plus May’s cooking was sublime. To have the independence of a villa combined with the luxury of being looked after, made for a heavenly holiday.
What a fantastic holiday we had in Villa Malee…we could have quite easily never left the house for the whole 7 days!! Khun May is without a doubt THE BEST Thai cook in the whole of Phuket. We went out to dinner a couple of times (even to the highly recommended restaurants) and, although they were lovely, the food was never as good as our “home cooked” meals. All the staff, went out of their way to make our stay one to remember. They were friendly and attentive without being at all intrusive. My friends all commented that Villa Malee was one the best accommodations they’ve stayed in, particularly for a group. Most of these ladies have travelled extensively throughout the world so that is a great compliment. I’m so glad we found and booked Villa Malee and I’m quite sure you will hear from some, if not all of us again!
Your villa was the perfect base for our family
We had a fantastic time in Thailand. Your villa was the perfect base for our family to get to the pier and the beach. The staff was everything and more than anyone could expect. You are fortunate to have them. It was great to put a face to your name, and we would certainly stay again and hope to in the not too distant future.
Anne Fraser: Scotland
A wonderful 2 weeks in Villa Jasmine
Just back this afternoon. We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Villa Jasmine – thank you for making the arrangements to ensure a great holiday. Khun May and staff attended to our every wish and we were spoiled with delicious meals prepared for us. This has been a very important trip for all the family. Thanking you again.
Ron Butler: Australia
Very well equipped
We had a wonderful time at Villa Malee. Your house is beautiful and very well equipped. May, Baa and Moo are outstanding. You are very fortunate to have them as well as Khun Noi as your manager.
Joanna Katory: Singapore
We will definitely return...
Thank you for letting us rent your villa. We all had a fantastic time over the 6 days. May is a brilliant housekeeper and cook and the other staff are great as well. We will definitely return if coming back to Phuket which we hope to do.
Keri Pennebaker: Japan
An excellent holiday
On behalf of all nine of us, I wish to thank you and your wonderful staff for such an excellent holiday. We loved every minute of our time in Phuket relaxing with the massages, exploring islands and forests, swimming in the pool, and devouring Khun May’s delicious meals. None of us wanted to leave your little piece of paradise and truly hope we can arrange another escape back to Villa Jasmine. We will recommend your villa to our friends.
Greg Young: Melbourne, Australia
We still think about Villa Jasmine with fond memories every day – please send our regards to May and the others, they were fantastic.
Just what we needed
What can I say, it was without question one of the best holidays we’ve been on (and we’ve been on quite a few!). It was absolutely brilliant! It was perfectly chilled and stress-free. Just what we needed. We have no complaints or suggestions to make it better – we just had such a great time that we didn’t want to come back.
Rob Cox: London: UK
Everything was splendid!
We had a fantastic holiday . The Villa and May and team exceeded our expectations! She is a credit to you and we would love to go back. Rooms are all excellent and great pool and other facilities. Everything was splendid! It is a five star experience.
May’s cooking was magnificent
We had a fantastic time, the vila is gorgeous and May and the girls were absolutely brilliant, you’re definitely onto a winner there with them. May’s cooking was magnificent. I can’t think of anything to suggest to improve it, it all worked so smoothly. Thank you for having us.
James Lisle: Macau and Hong Kong
The Villa was superb
The Villa was superb as was May and her team. Some of the best Thai food I have eaten in 24 years in Asia. I have forwarded details of the villas throughout my company and to my friends. I am confident you will get bookings from them in due course. Certainly my family and our friends the Berlin’s will visit again.
Martin Berlin: Macau
Fantastic service and cooking
My family and I had a wonderful holiday in the Villa Jasmine together with the Lisles. Fantastic service and cooking by May and her team. I will definitely stay there again and recommend it to my friends.
Absolutely fantastic villa
Just a quick note to let you know the holiday was a great success. You have an absolutely fantastic villa there and the girls were great. Thanks for all your help in the organizing Brian and I will hopefully speak to you again soon with regards to my next trip. Many thanks.
We update the reviews here every few months.
