We really enjoyed our visit. We stayed in Baan Sawainam for three nights. Heather was there to meet us on our arrival and was always contactable by the phone that was left in the room for us. She ensured we had plenty of towels, water and everything else we needed including booking tours and advising us on restaurants. The pool... More
