Villa Malee a great place to stay and to relax
I and my friends enjoyed our stay in Villa Malee. When we arrived the housekeeper Khun Noi showed us around and explained everything about the villa (we were given a mobile Phone and we could call her 24/24h whenever we wanted). We also met the cook of the house, NokNoi. Mostly, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in the villa. Why ? It’s very simple, NokNoi is such a good cook that no restaurant in Kata can reach the level of her cooking. So most of the time we let NokNoi surprise us with her own choices of Thai food. Everything NokNoi cooked was great! For the meals and the drinking in the villa we paid +/- 5.000,- THB/person for 12 days of staying (that’s around 20 meals and all the drinks of beer, wine, soft drinks, vodka, gin, water). The staff were very discrete and you have the feeling that you are alone in the villa, but when you need one of the staff, they respond immediately to your request. The staff were very friendly and you can count on them 24/24h! The bedrooms and all other rooms of the villa Malee are kept very clean. The swimming pool is not very big (good to play in or for cool down but not for a swimmer). The “jacuzzi” in the swimming pool was great! There is a small sea view and the trees and greenery around the villa hides those walls of the buildings around. The beaches of Kata or Karon are great. It is a walk of 20 à 30 minutes to the beach or by taxi (400 THB one way/5 persons). A taxi to Patong costs 800 THB (one way/5persons). The day-rent of a private 2-engine speedboat with crew costs 20.000,-THB (transfer from villa to harbour and lunch included and maximum 8 passengers and visiting 3 islands of your choice). Conclusion : Villa Malee a great place to stay and to relax. There is a very good staff present in the villa and a great cook NokNoi.
