My group of friends and I (16 of us in total) were on our Graduation Trip to Krabi when we booked the Villa Saifon 3 & 5 for 3 nights.
We were greeted with such warm, welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful staff. The Villa Manager, Fon, was such a sweetheart to be around. She showed us around the villa, sent us to the Ao Nang area and always looked out for us.
She helped us know more about the place and took care of us when we were in need. My friends had rented a motorbike and had gotten into a small accident and Fon was there to help us.
The villa was cleaned every day and I love how they took care of every detail of the cleaning (from the arranging of towels to the toilet paper). The villa and its spectacular nature view was really such a beauty.
Perfect place to stay in, worth the money and priceless experience :) Will totally come back again.
We were a group of 7 (family of 5 and partners) to celebrate my husband's birthday. We gasped when we arrived at the villa - it was beautiful and the limestone mountain backdrop was stunning. Beyond the pool was a large pond and then the limestone mountain, so it was very relaxing. and calming to swim and look at the beautiful scenery beyond. Michael, Fon and their staff were there to greet us on arrival with cold towels and a welcome refreshing drink. After the airport pick, we requested to be drop by a large supermarket (Tesco) to load up on drinks etc. (I read about this from an earlier review for this service).
Decor: The villa is decorated in teak style with wooden furniture. Kitchen is fully equipped and whatever you need is all there (there is even a rice cooker!). It is very comfortable
Housekeeping: Michael was very nice to have the pool cleaned daily for us. There was daily cleaning and towels were changed daily as well
Food: We only tried Fon's cooking of two dishes (stir fry morning glory and tamarind prawns) and were very satisfied. This is in addition to a BBQ which they prepared for us. Everyone enjoyed the food and service - you just sit at the long table in front of the pool and were served like a king. We had chicken wings, angus beef, chicken thigh and squid. All were very good except for the squid which should have been grilled longer.
Service: Michael and Fon were very hepful and prompt with our queries. They even went to the extent of having my husband's birthday cake collected from a bakery and sent to a restaurant for the birthday dinner celebration. This was a very nice extra touch which they did on our own and I was pleasantly surprised when Fon told me what she had done (I had thought that we would need to drop by the bakery to collect the cake on the way to the restaurant but she took the initiative and collected the cake and sent to the restaurant instead! Thank you Fon! This is really thumbs up for your service.
Transport: Two round trips per day to Ao Nang were provided and driver was very good.
Phone: The use of a house mobile phone is very good and thoughtful.
In all, it was a very good stay and in fact my daughter is making a return trip and staying at the 5 bedroom villa in July (we stayed at the 3 bedroom villa). On hindsight, there was no need to pay for an extra bed as the sofa in the living room is big enough for an adult and very comfortable. One suggestion though - they should look to have a proper blanket or quilt for the person sleeping on the extra bed (instead of using a the bedcover as the blanket which was not warm enough).
Thank you Michael & Fon for the wonderful stay - it will always be in our memories. Please look after my daughter and her friends when she is there in July (and you will have a lot of referrals).
great view on a cliff and a pool even from the bed room. Manager Fon is very nice, she drove us to market for shopping and recommend the best local foods for us. Excellent transportation twice per days, high speed internet,etc. Manager Fon and her staff, this villa will be forever in our memory,it is a nice memory !
Lost for words. This place is outstanding. Stayed in the 3 bed Villa Saifon. A little oasis in the middle of the wilderness. Stunning view from beautiful infinity pool. Even saw an elephant walk passed ! Internal decor luxurious with all mod cons. Staff ( forgive spelling ! ) Sol, A and Hakim were first rate and Fon's in-house cooking was simply delicious. Used the included taxi service to the local beaches most days. Long Beach was my favourite in particular the Pan Beach area. Recommend the speed boat trip to Phi Phi and Bamboo island. This place is definitely on my list of places to return to. Thanks for a wonderful week.
Myself and three others stayed here for four nights as a alternative to a beach resort. Our main goal was to relax, refuel and avoid resort guests that "hog" all the lounges around the pool!
Everything about this rental was superb. Airport pickup, charming hosts, complimentary shuttle service to Ao Nang, beautiful villa with everything you need. Highlights were the pool, the beer fridge and Fon's cooking.
Recommendations for your stay is to ask the airport pickup personnel to detour via the big supermarket to pick up supplies as the Ao Nang one is small but still OK.
