Our extended family of eight adults and two kids stayed in four of the five bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms was very comfortable and air conditioned with nice bathroom facilities. The pool was used daily and was a delight. We had massages in the massage room on more that one occasion that was arranged by the staff. We ate dinner inside at a large table that all ten could sit comfortably around with a table top in the middle that rotated so all could get at the various plates placed on top of it.
The food was cooked in the large kitchen and was excellent. Sylvia would ask what we wanted to eat and the cooks would accommodate any dish requested. Breakfast was served outside and again was whatever we wished for. Plenty of Thai dishes, fruits galore, eggs, pancakes - you name it! Coffee was plentiful and delicious in the morning and they never ran out of local brew. Khem and Krich drove us wherever we wanted to go and offered suggestions and were very helpful in arranging tours. Sylvia was our hostess and she was unbelievably friendly and helpful. Khem, Krich and Sylvia spoke good English which was a big plus in communicating our needs and desires. In summation, the facilities were fantastic, the food excellent and the service could not have been better!
I planned on writing a review of this place as soon as we got home, but couldn't remember the name of it. I stumbled across it today while playing on Trip Advisor, so had to let everyone know how wonderful it was.
The place is absolutely beautiful! Krich & his staff treated us like royalty. The beds are very comfy and the rooms are spotless. The linens and towels look like they are brand new. The cook is fabulous. I had not had much experience with Thai food before, but over a year later, I still often think about the amazing dishes she made for us. Krich drove us wherever we wanted to go and gave us a wonderful tour of the area plus gave us lots of advice and ideas of what to do and where to go. He is such a kind and wonderful person. He was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived and dropped us off there again in the wee hours of the morning.
There is a huge yoga studio on the premises where we were treated to hour long massages which Krich set up for us with some local therapists. The beaches are a ways away, but Krich dropped us off every day and set up a time to pick us up each time. If you are looking for somewhere to rent in this area, DO NOT hesitate to book it, you will not be disappointed by any means!!
Villa Salika will surpass your expectations on every level. Everything which embodies the stunning Thai spirit is here for you to enjoy. A spectacular villa which is large, yet so private. Every room will take your breath away in it's style and personal touches. Thai centric, but with modernity which leaves you wanting for nothing.
Wonderful Staff who are there to cater to anything you could want - Incredible food, cooked to restaurant standards; discreet housekeeping which means the villa is exquisitely clean and neat; humble generous advice which makes a good holiday, great - Krich and his team know how to make your stay truly memorable way beyond the villa walls.
Our group was 3 families, with a total of 11 people - 6 adults and 5 children. We loved every inch of Salika, and will definitely return.
I booked my stay for my 21st birthday and from the moment we were picked up, till the moment we checked out, we were treated like absolute royalty. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The entire villa was bigger than we expected and extremely clean. Most of the time we didn't even want to leave the villa because it was so comfy and beautiful.
The food they made as well was beyond expectation. I personally love Thai food, and to get that home cooked Thai experience was great. All the fruits they provided were fresh too. The only con I would say would be the location. It is a little far off, but the driver was great! And very accommodating to all our needs, so regardless, distance isn't really an issue. I definitely would recommend Villa Salika to everyone. It is truly an amazing experience. Worth every penny and more !
I should have given my review earlier. We had a great time. The host and staffs in the villa were very professional. They were accommodating to our requests. The meals were delicious and sumptious. The villa is well maintained and clean. The transport provided made travelling and sightseeing a breeze. Highly recommend this villa. If there's a chance, I'd definitely stay in this villa again. Thank you to Yingsak & his team.
