“Returning to Sawan Mountain Villas with my family was a truly heart-warming experience! Even when you know the place, you cannot help but being completely overwhelmed by the beauty and tranquility, as soon as you enter the property. You feel how the soothing energy of the valley drenches every bit of hamster-wheel stress out of you, leaving you open to soak up all the peace and splendor, this gem has to offer. You just know, that this is going to be the perfect start to your holiday! 😊 Upon arrival, we were greeted by the lovely and very amazing Sawan staff, and when we entered the villa, we noticed how they had remembered little details about us from before; our preferences in food, drinks and snacks. This was very, very touching! The villa has undergone a total revamp and upgrade and everything is fresh, clean and new, and so beautifully decorated. Very cool vibe - really nice touches of the traditional Thai style with a modern twist. One of the many things that really stood out and we really appreciated, was the bedding and linen and towels which have also all been upgraded to great quality. All is white and crispy clean. As I write this, we have left the villa to stay in a hotel, and we already miss the easy villa-lifestyle so much! We miss just getting out of bed in the mornings, lazing around on the large terrace in our pajamas while taking in the spectacular sunrise behind the limestone karsts, drinking coffee), swimming, meditating, going for walks in the beautiful gardens, feeding the fish in the large pond, picking fresh fruit ….. Being together, but still with lots of space to do our own thing. This is one of the many advantages of villa rental. You don’t have to gather everyone to go anywhere. On the contrary, you just roll from your bed into the pool, laze on your deck chair, grab a drink or a sandwich in the kitchen(no galloping pool bar bills), socialize, retreat, get a massage, a yoga class … No fuzz, because it’s all there. Another great thing that we already reminisce about, is the hustle and bustle of the early mornings in the quaint, local village where we’d sample the delicious food from various stalls and go for an early morning swim in the beautiful and very clean spring and river at Sra Kaew. In the evenings we enjoyed dinners at some of the nice restaurants in the Nai Sa or Khao Thong area or had food delivered - or we’d barbecue on the terrace or cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen. The villa is situated very close to some of the nicest attractions that Krabi has to offer and of course we once again we enjoyed the amazing Hong islands with its many tropical beaches. Some which are deserted. An absolute must! You can catch a private long tail boat just 10 mins drive from the villa. There is so much to see and do in an area like this with so much natural beauty. We are not into the touristy type of holidays but for a shopping trip to Ao Nang, it’s a 20 min drive (we hired a car but also easy to get there by scooter, tuk tuk or taxi) with its rows of shops, bars and restaurants. After a few hours of that, you will be so happy to return to your mountain views and the peace and quiet of authentic Krabi. Last, but definitely not least, I want to mention the owner, Pat. She is the kindest and most courteous host. Always a quick response when we needed her, always objective in her approach, non-intrusive in the best possible sense of the word and just so kind hearted. One morning she suggested that we try out a private yoga class on the terrace. At first everyone just laughed(our family not exactly yoga types, we thought)but finally agreed to try and this proved to be one of the most memorable “adventures” of this holiday! The lovely teacher was just so amazing! She made sure we all felt comfortable. She made us laugh, and relax and we ended up wanting to book another class. I could go on and on about Sawan, because it has everything we need on a holiday. We have already decided to cancel another destination we had planned, in order to return to Sawan for the last few days of our holiday. It is the type of place you will long to go back to the minute you leave. Sawan means Paradise. This is as close as you get! My suggestion to other travelers is to simply book and experience! You will not regret it! Highly Recommended!”

“This time our family of five came to Krabi and chose to live in Anita's house. It turns out that this is the right choice. Anita can indeed be called a superb landlord! Because I forgot to confirm the pick-up time with her before departure, I contacted her in Bangkok. She arranged the pick-up service with great enthusiasm. Because Anita's house location is not in the city center, she also asked the driver to take us to the supermarket to buy things and then go home. It was already at night, Anita had opened the villa lights for us to welcome us, prepared fruit, bread and breakfast, and welcomed our local snacks. Anita was very enthusiastic and talkative. We introduced the facilities and usage methods of the room to us. We drove us to a great Thai restaurant that night. Every day, she will confirm our needs with us, and recommend great travel itineraries and restaurants for us. As long as she is within her ability, she will spare no effort to help us solve all problems, including driving us in person. So with her help, the location of the villa does not seem to be a big problem. When I left, my parents repeatedly said that Anita is very good. This trip is very good and enjoyable. For the first time, I also felt that the landlord really looked like a friend. If the family or group travels to Krabi, Anita's villa is indeed a great choice, very recommended!”

“This place is amazing!! If you are debating between this and another look no farther you will LOVE it here!! The resort is nestled at the base of some beautiful mountains. It is a slice of paradise! Just enough removed from the traffic and people and noise but still close enough only about 20 minutes so you can easily get to Krabi Town or au nang beach. (They have a driver onsite that can give you a taxi ride whenever and wherever you would like or they can set up a scooter rental for you if you would like your own wheels) the bungalows are gorgeous! They are hand build with beautiful wood work they have thought of every detail and these places are so pretty! The bed is SO comfortable and the linens are very nice! The bungalows are sparkling clean! They have someone come in and clean and change bedding and towels every day. It comes with soap and shampoo. The grounds are beautiful we just stayed at the resort a few days just to soak it all in! This resort is brand new and putting in a pool with should be finished soon! They have a cook onsite and she is AMAZING! We are vegetarian and we told her and she catered to our request. She made a large delicious Thai style breakfast every morning for only 150 baht. She cooked for us on demand anytime we were hungry we ate many delicious lunches and dinners there as well (Curry’s, vegetable tempura, pineapple fried rice in a pineapple, egg sandwiches, soup, omelettes, delicious fish dishes, and my favorite part was the beautiful platter of fresh cut fruit with every meal) she is a 5 star cook the meals are beautiful and so delicious! You won’t believe it! Joy is the manager she speaks great English, French and Thai. She is the resort driver. She will help you get all your activities planned and can drive you anywhere you want at anytime. She lives on the property and will take very good care of you. She is such a lovely person! She picked us up at the ferry terminal she was there waiting for us and came right up to me as I am walking off the ramp and just from seeing my air bnb profile picture says “hi I am joy”. And helped us with all our luggage. We were traveling with our dog and she was SO accommodating! She let her ride in the car and would always stop by to check on her and pet her and gave her hot dogs, Joy was always so sweet and accommodating to us and our dog. Everyone here is so nice and will go out of your way to make your trip to Krabi special. We loved this place and can’t wait to come back with family.”
