What an amazing place for our family who live at ends of the world to meet. Having traveled From the U.K. and N.Z. to meet here in the middle Phuket, we were so lucky to find such fabulous accommodation, such amazing weather and the best hosts we could have asked for. Wawa and the rest of the team were helpful, kind and provided everything we needed. We ate in most of the time because the food was so good and authenticity Thai. Thank you so much from us all.

This stay at villa Baan Surin Sawan was the most amazing stay we ever had here in Phuket. The villa staff was sincerely special and professional. Chef Pou is the incredible chef. Her food was out of this world. I am vegetarian but I could not get enough of her delicious food. The housekeeper, Sao and Noi kept the hold house superbly clean at all times. The villa manager, Woody is the most professional person - very gentle, also very helpful. He organized my son’s birthday party expertly. The whole house was decorated with dozens of balloons. We and friends, everybody left this property with memories. The whole team is beyond amazing and next time I would like the very same team on-board please. With this all in mind I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you very much for your everything and god bless with best wishes.

The villa itself is absolutely wonderful, it definitely has the wow factor and as long as you've got a good book there's very little point in leaving. We had children with us however so when we did want to go out and about, Pat the manager was extremely helpful in making arrangements for us. The chef Lucky is a superstar, we couldn't believe just how spoiled we were at mealtimes. We did have to ask to be kept informed on costings for food etc but once that was ironed out, not a problem at all and it was very reasonable. There are several villas on the hillside and it's luck of the draw who your neighbours are (for them and us!) But unfortunately we're a bit old for the 5am revellers with loud music. The mornings can be a bit noisy as people begin about their day very early on the roads around the villa grounds so there was traffic noise and a bit of shouting going on, so I didn't get the sleep-ins I was hoping for. The villa is not as remote as I was hoping for.

We had a wonderful time at the villa - we were especially impressed with the expansiveness of the villa which is beautifully furnished. We were also very lucky to have Pat and her team who took care of all our needs, they were super friendly, reliable and did a great job! We loved it so much we plan to go back again very soon.

This was a perfect getaway for my wife and I. The Villa gave us privacy while offering a spectacular ocean view with an infinity pool. The housekeeper was lovely and exceptionally nice and provided everything we needed. The villa was so wonderful in fact that we barely wanted to leave it. I wish we could have stayed longer. I particularly loved the outdoor jacuzzi in the master bathroom, an awesome way to end the day.

The property reflects its owners’ passion for travel and art, evident upon arrival as guests are serenely greeted by a superb collection of Buddhist monk statues. Throughout the villa are intricate wall hangings, embroidered fabrics, African masks and other works of art sourced from around the world. Floor mosaics and eye-catching design details combined with an extensive use of wood, marble, stone and other natural materials give the villa a distinctive flair.
The villa’s pitched-roof pavilions house welcoming private and communal accommodation in four spacious bedroom suites, an inviting living room, entertainment room, modern kitchen and stately dining room, while tropical outdoor living can be enjoyed to the full around the villa’s 8-metre pool.
Baan Baan Surin Sawan is staffed with a full-time Thai chef who prepares delicious meals daily, maids and a villa (concierge) manager who will be pleased to assist with guests’ holiday requirements both in the villa and beyond, including golf tee-off times, dining reservations, yacht charters, island tours, massage treatments and more.
