Lovely villas in a quieter location in Phuket
We are just finishing up an 11 night stay in Villa Orchid. The villa has been an excellent choice for us ( we are 4 adults in our early 50s). The villas are beautifully kept and equipped and have all the creature comforts of home. The maid comes in quietly each day and does an excellent job of keeping the house on track without being in the way. Our maid helped us with meals when we were home, washed up after us, did our laundry, did our local shopping for us and made sure we had a never ending supply of fresh towels. She even washed our beach shoes when we returned from the beach!! We had our maid cook a couple of dinners for us, both of which were excellent and extremely cheap.
The villa is located between two lovely beaches – Nai Thon and Nai Yang. Both beaches were very pretty and largely clean. They had trees for shade. We found we preferred these beaches to the crowded and more popular beaches of Patong, Kamala and Surin. Most evenings we ate out at either Nai Thon or Nai Yang and there was a good selection of moderately priced restaurants. For 4 adults with alcohol we never paid more than 2000 Thai Baht and usually paid less than 1500 Baht.
These villas really are a great choice for those who want to enjoy the beauty and climate of Phuket, but want to be away from the crowds. Guests should know that you would need a car unless you want to spend a fortune on taxis.
Finally I want to say that the Bismarck organization is excellent. Our airport transfers occurred without difficulty. Whenever we had a question, we could just pick up our cell phone and it would be answered immediately. Rides were arranged as needed. One day we could not buy beer at the store due to liquor licensing rules. We called Bismarck and just as we got home cold beers were being placed in our fridge!
We would definitely come again. This is a perfect place for a quiet stress free vacation!!
Would you recommend this hotel to a friend? Yes.
