Thailand, West Coast and Islands
Info : Sawasdee Village
Sawasdee Village is an intimate and cosy boutique resort set in lush gardens around an inviting pool shaded by flowering trees. Itâs tucked away in Kata, but only a 5 minute stroll from the town and beach.
Sawasdee Village has a unique style, full of decorative art and interesting, traditional architecture. The spa "Barai" is housed in an elaborate, glittering pavilion where you can experience exquisite, ancient therapies from India and Thailand. The resort features a fantastic Thai restaurant and there are many superb local places to eat within a couple of minutes walk.
Sawasdee Village currently has 46 rooms set in low level traditional Thai buildings. The rooms are not extravagant but are comfortable and offer all amenities such as TV, mini bar and air conditioning.
Sawasdee Village is a great value resort with some really special touches, the service is fantastic and the walled gardens make it feel like an oasis of calm.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
