Private residence without the hustle and bustle of a resort
My wife, myself and 2 adult sons stayed at Villa Malee during the month of July 2017. Paul the driver used by the Villas was very professional and courteous and had a modern van with seat belts fitted. He collected us from the airport. Noi emailed me a couple of days before we left Australia to see what shopping we wanted and upon our arrival at the villa, food and drink was in the fridge in the kitchen and icy cold drinks in the large ice chest near the pool ready for us. The staff cooked us dinner on our first night which was Chicken with cashew nuts, fried rice etc. Great food! The villa is great. Clean, large bedrooms and living areas, large TV and DVD and TVs in all bedrooms. The pool was cool and spotlessly clean with Jacuzzi jets at one end. When we needed a taxi, the girls ordered one and the wait was no more than 15-20 minutes. The girls made our beds daily, cooked breakfast (we chose to have American breakfasts, with bacon and eggs, toast, baked beans, juice etc but you can have whatever you want) and then left us alone to eat and then came back and did the dishes. Breakfast was included in the daily price and you only pay extra for the ingredients for any lunch or dinners that you want the girls to cook. Alternatively you can do your own cooking if you prefer (but why would you?) The staff didn’t get in the way at all, but were always on hand when needed (you can call them with a buzzer in the kitchen). For anyone wanting a private residence without the hustle and bustle of a resort, this is the place to go. It can accommodate 8 persons in the 4 double bedrooms, so is relatively affordable on a person to person ratio. My wife and I had Thai massages in our rooms almost daily and it saves going into town to have them. Overall a great experience with personalised service and we will be using the villa again when we next return to Phuket.
