Certificate of Excellence

My wife and I spent a week at Leelawadee Garden Resort. It was delightful. However, if you are a traveler looking for a beach property then this is not for you. It is located on top of a gentle hillock providing sweeping views of the karst landscapes of Krabi, and surrounded by a producing rubber plantation. The property exudes traditional Thai style and design, but is fully modernized for guest convenience. With a fully equipped kitchenette, flat screen TV with good satellite cable service, and some of the best internet service I have experienced in Asia that provides both strong wifi; and, in-villa wired ethernet -- albeit with a short cable -- it allowed us to easily stream movies online. About the only negative of the villa was that air conditioning was only provided in the separate bedroom. The 8 villas on the property enhance the low density experience and add to the sense of serenity. An excellent, but smallish, pool allows you to cool off during the heat of the Krabi day. The owners of the property are very friendly, and incredibly helpful with ideas on tourist sites, restaurants, and attractions. However, their checkout time of 12 noon is sacrosanct and they will cheerfully make sure you vacate the villa and the property at the appointed time. Not being able to even chill by their pool for a couple hours in advance of our flight time was a disappointing note to what was an otherwise excellent experience.

Room Tip: It is highly recommended you consider renting a car, or other mode of transportation. We rented a ca...

I recently stayed here passing through krabi for 3 nights after 3 weeks of staying in hotels this was a breath of fresh air so relaxing and scenery was beautiful !! Location is close to the airport and not to far from krabi town! I loved how homely and comfortable it was the service we were given was above and beyond and made our stay there! Great place for friends or couples romantic and peaceful! Couldn't of helped us more with anything we needed from mopeds to local information! Thank you for everything!!

We loved this tranquil retreat villa amongst the rubber trees and away from the tourist craziness of Krabi town. The well laid out villas are comfortable and well maintained. They provided all you would need in the kitchen to make snacks and enjoy your take out food ordered by Caroline. Perfect hosts for this lovely setting. Paul and Caroline were helpful and full of information about the area. You are not close to anything and will need to take a cab or rent a scooter while there but it is worth it. Cabs are not cheap in this area so be prepared. We did manage to walk to a near by bakery which is about a 20 minute walk each way on a few mornings. The pool area is lovely and relaxing with both sunny and shady areas. Our only disappointment was wishing we had booked longer. There are no room tips as I am sure all the villas are great. Kudos to Caroline and Paul!

My husband and I spent Xmas week (Dec. 21-26) at Leelawadee. It was wonderful for what we were looking for - a peaceful retreat with access to Krabi's beaches and nature. The villas are absolutely beautiful and very well designed. Fully equipped with all the details to make for a very comfortable stay (fridge, pots and pans, free water bottles, tea kettle, coffee/tea, flat screen TV, digital cable, nice big closet, beautiful bathroom, outdoor patio with table and chairs, great WiFi). The villas are immaculately clean and well-maintained. The pool area is also very nice for when you get back from the beach or daytime activities. Caroline and Paul basically planned out all of our activities during our stay, we didn't have to think about a thing - they booked us an awesome private long boat which took us to some great spots while avoiding all the crowds, they booked us the perfect place for our Xmas dinner at an awesome Thai upscale restaurant, got us a motorbike rental for the duration of our stay, gave us very detailed road instructions, led us to the best Thai crab curry soup we have ever had -- sublime as one other guest who also had it described it, gave us tons of tips, ordered and picked up meals for us when we were tired and wanted to stay in, booked massages for us, got us bread from a nice local bakery for our breakfasts, drove us to an ATM, all in all, did everything and more to ensure that you have a relaxing vacation. We basically went with all their recommendations and were never led astray. We truly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Paul and Caroline!!

In summary:
Pros - Maximum relaxation at what I would call a casual luxury "Thai villa", incredible hosts who cater to your every comfort.

Cons - It is not walking distance to anything but I'm giving it an excellent rating for location because this is what we wanted for our stay...to be in a quiet location. It is about 7-10 min on a moto to town, so if you want to be in town and in the middle of all the action, do not stay here. You definitely need a moto or a car rental. If you are an inexperienced moto driver DO NOT drive a moto in Krabi. It is not easy driving and it can be dangerous because of traffic and the lack of driving etiquette in Thailand. Rent a car or use taxis which are relatively cheap. We used an inexpensive car service at night when we went to dinner provided by the hotel and a moto in the daytime. The massage places offer free transportation to and from your massage.

We have stayed at Leelawadee from 31 Dec 14 to 04 Jan 15.

Paul and Caroline are both very friendly and helpful in helping us to get our way to Aonang, settling our meal and ensure that we are back safely for the whole trip... What makes our stay memorable would be Paul and Caroline will personally dropped by your room to inform us that our transport has arrived which most resort or even villa doesn't even do that...

My friends and I have enjoyed the pool, the peaceful surrounding and the company of the doggie ... We also have fun preparing food in the room with the equipped kitchen...
