“The property, food and hospitality are all incredible. We can’t 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, as did the owner, Brian Phillips, who was staying next door for the weekend. 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!
Every morning, we were able to select 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 can’t say enough good things about our stay at Villa Jasmine. I’m already excited about trying to plan my next visit! Brian Grossman – Milwaukee, USA. December 2011
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!!)
We will definitely return:)!! Sherene Hartland, Australia, November 2011
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. Seppo Kallio, Finland, November 2011
My friends & I had a wonderful time at your villa. Khun Noi & her staff were the best. We love their authentic Thai cooking. We would recommend your villa to anyone. Yong Lim, Western Australia, November 2011
