We stayed at the villa Kalyana 3 nights mid-march 2013. Actually, we organized our wedding there. Everything was more then perfect: contacts with the owner (Mr Mack) before we arrived, the location of the villa, in a very secluded private beach under a canopy of coconut trees, the staff of the villa, always there for us, but very discreet. The villa is very beautiful, very luxurious: very ancient wood tables, beautifully decorated bungalows and rooms... The garden is amazing: you can just lounge on the sofa, enjoy a good swim in this amazing pool, or wander around the beach. Of course, all our guests were delighted: everybody had a great time and we had the most beautiful wedding, with our ceremony on the beach in front of the villa. Transfer were also very easy, as the staff will come and pick you up. They will also drive you back to the pier or the airport after your stay. We are already planning on coming back for our anniversary sometimes!
This was the nicest spot that i ever been, and i use to be in many resorts around the world. The word paradise is exactly the right word to describe this place the bungalows are huge and fully equipped with all luxury you might need! The staff reads all your wishes from your eyes, and the catering is just fantastic! I wish i could stay longer but business is calling :-( By the way i booked already for next year :-) Many thanks to Villa Kalyana!
Feeling like in Paradise ! The Villa resort is nestling between a generous native old palmtree garden! The Villa Resort is the most exiting I have ever been. The place is very quiet and for stressed business people the perfect place to relax, swim, eat and have fun. The Villas have 75 qm, they are equipped with antique furniture and docking stations for apple equipment, everything is very lovely. All villas have a large bath room, and a separate outside shower, that's fantastic. From your bed you have a direct view to the Sea, the large wonderful pool. There is a fully equipped TV room, and a pool Billiard. It needs only some steps than you are your own private beach and can take a bath alone in your private bay. The staff is very nice and friendly, they fulfill every wish before telling it. For example if you want a fresh coconut you get it in a couple of minutes. The food is excellent and varied. There are also several restaurants around but in my opinion in the food in the resort is better. For breakfast you can have whatever you want. If you want to go out for a cocktail or dancing its not far away from the resort but you will be glad to come back to your luxury home.
The villa is an ideal getaway place, rustic - modern, luxuriously decorated, peaceful, quiet, relaxing...strategically built in and around a canopy of coconut trees, all amidst lush greenery. Soft clean sand covers the private beach. The natural oval shaped lagoon has a consistent depth and its calm makes it safe for the children. Two canoes and oars lay by the beach, available for use. The whole place is well constructed, not too far from town and amenities. It was a wish came true...just what our group needed (a breakaway from our daily hectic schedules & routines)! We had exclusive use of the whole villa...allowing the kids to have a wilder time (without having to worry about annoying other guests). Coupled with the games room, gym and wide range of DVDs, the kids were always occupied, leaving us adults, at last, free and uninterrupted to indulge, be it a meal, chat over a freshly brewed coffee or surf the internet. So ideal was the uniquely long dining table that could accommodate all of us. We spent much time there, chatting & laughing, sharing & interacting (our favorite past time together). Our daily meals, from breakfast to dinner were all taken care of, which otherwise can be a headache for our group (kids to elderlies, with varying preferences). We were spoiled with the villa hospitality. Renaud, the very hardworking, hands-on villa manager, made sure our stay was comfortable. Ms Chin, the villa chef, and a wonderful cook, never fails to surprise us with every meal! From the wok to the table - delicious Thai dishes, desserts or Western meals, all made to our liking. We simply took our places at the table and were given the best service ever. Their team of helpful, friendly staff were ever ready to serve with a big smile! Not forgetting adorable Loma, a very friendly, gentle Rottweiler...he only barks at intruders and makes us feel safe. It is not a hotel, it is not a service apartment - it's a six star Villa! Thank you everyone! We thank God... It was truly, a memorable week at your lovely Villa Kalyana. And if He is willing we will visit again!
