Luxury Villa Phuket

Guest Reviews

We've had a lot of guests stay with us, and we think that most of them, if not all, would tell you what a great time they had. But it's not just the villa that makes your stay one to remember. It's the staff, and how they add to an already great experience. We're quite sure you won't be disappointed.

Tim, Michelle and all

Baan Kata Keeree exceeded our already high expectations

As a group of 12 friends from UK, Australia and Canada meeting and catching up around the pool and the amazing Thai banquets every night - it was the perfect location. It really feels like a luxurious family home, each bedroom had something special about it, and a recent refresh of the decor was really appreciated. Homes in a tropical climate with sea breezes take alot of maintenance and they really have done their best here to keep everything looking beautiful.

Somjit did a great job accessing yoga teachers to come in the morning (Thank you Pin and Ann), organising tours and transport, special meal requests and even access to medical care. One of us needed hospital care while here (unrelated to the stay) and he prioritized their welfare and insisted on transporting to and from hospital himself.

We love the access to the guest kitchen, for making cocktails and snacks if needed; if staff were there they were always keen to help.

We're very grateful to Khun Somjit, Kay and all of the staff for taking such great care of us!

Excellent location and view of kata beach

The place is very quite and peaceful. Close to the beach, 5 minutes walk. There are few restaurants within 10 minutes of walk. The service at the villa was extraordinary, we had 4 staff helping us, some at the kitchen and others cleaning. Breakfast was the best part for me, excellent food and view. The pool was cleaned daily and it was very nice. The pictures doesn’t do the place justice. I would go again

The home is immaculate but Jo and his staff truly made it special

I have traveled a lot and stayed in a lot of Guest Houses and BnBs. This home is in a class of its own. The full time staff and manager Jo were incredible. It felt like I was at a billionaire private home. They had everything we needed and were incredibly responsive. The fridge was always stocked and the dinners each night were wonderful.

Our family of 11 people enjoyed a wonderful five-day vacation

The villa is in the perfect location with stunning views from the terrace overlooking the entire KATA Beach. It is a superb view in the morning, dusk or night. It's only a 5 minute walk from the villa to the beach, which is the perfect distance and the best thing about this place. We can always walk to the beach, snorkeling and surfing or just take a walk. The scenery is unforgettable. We also flew a drone around the Villa to capture panoramic video. The chef cooks so well that everyone from children as young as 5 to people as old as 75 enjoyed their meals. Joe, the butler, was a very helpful person, helping us book a lot of activities and transportation on the island, driving us to interesting places nearby, and shopping for groceries and snacks as requested.

The venue was excellent, clean and comfortable.

A fantastic location close to Kata beach (3-5 minutes walk). Great, friendly and helpful staff who couldn’t do enough to make your stay memorable. The in-house chef was excellent for preparing Thai cuisine. Wonderful evenings were spent on the deck with spectacular views overlooking the sea and beach

FABULOUS - you need to book this place!

Accommodations are perfect - beds are comfy, the pool the perfect temperature, views gorgeous, even the gym has top-notch equipment in good working order. The beach is just around the corner, and there is swimming, snorkeling, jet skis, parasailing. Though snorkel gear can be rented, the villa even has a couple of full-face masks available. Despite the surrounding beauty, the service is what makes this place stand out - we've never experienced anything like it. The entire staff greeted us on arrival and treated us like royalty from that point on. Take advantage of their impeccable service - fresh ingredients for every meal are purchased daily, arrangements can be made for any excursion, and not only is there no upcharge (i.e. you would spend the same amount if you did everything on your own), staff works to find the absolute best deals for guests. Joe, in particular, is practically psychic & knows what you want or need before you do!

This property exceeded our expectations.

The staff, especially Joe, offer exceptional service that makes your stay truly unforgettable. The property is spacious with stunning views of Kata Beach, making it perfect for a peaceful getaway. The in-house chef is amazing, we had delicious meals, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, showcasing the best of Thai cuisine, grilled lobster and fish from the local market. I highly recommend KataKaree for anyone looking for a luxurious and unforgettable stay in Phuket.

Wow! You MUST stay here.

This was hands down the coolest experience we've ever had It is just like the pictures and exceeded pur expectations. Particularly because of the amazing service from the staff, especially Joe. They are there to help you with anything you need! The property is stunning to walk around with incredible views of kata beach. We had a beautiful chef dinner and delicious breakfast everyday. You can also get in house massages which were amazing. I can't wait to come back here and highly recommend this.

Everything about the Villa was perfect.

Beautiful grounds, great gym, great pool, beautiful outside dinner during sunset. Joe and the rest of the staff were so friendly and it was sad to have to leave them and the villa. I hope to stay there again someday. Highly recommended.

What a beautiful sanctuary this villa is.

Our family is still daydreaming waking up to the view, enjoying morning coffee while also listening to the sound of the waves. From the moment we arrived, we were struck by the calmness of the place, the cozy homey traditional meets modern interior and the friendliness of the staff. It felt like being a guest of a home rather than commercial accommodation. The villa offers view of Kata beach, so close yet so private. Daily breakfast simple but delicious. Pool area is wonderful with staff always keep cold beverages in a cooler. The rooms are big and cleaned daily. Joe the manager is so helpful and accomodating sometimes for last minute plans. Communication always responded promptly. Joe and the staff is well experienced, they understand what guests needed and they make our stay really enjoyable. Thank you very much for the hospitality and the memories. We definitely will recommend this villa to everyone who's visiting Phuket.

Wow! You MUST stay here.

Wow! What a great place to stay! We had a wonderful stay at KataKaree. We were a group of 3 families, and we had the villa all to ourselves. The villa was spacious, more than enough space for 9 of us. Each room had everything we needed, air conditioning, clean bathrooms, fridge, couches and great views. It was so nice to wake up hearing the waves. The pool was fantastic and cleaned daily. There was a gym and kids play area. What made it extra special was the beautiful kind staff. Joe, the house manager, Kay house keeper and the chef, cleaning staff and gardener were friendly and willing to help us. We ordered delicious breakfast daily and most nights had dinner on the deck with the sunset ocean views by our side. It was magical. Location is about 30min from Phuket airport, and it was no trouble as Joe arranged for a van to pick us up. It was less than 5 min walk down to the surf beach and shops. It is a quieter area, which is what we preferred. We all had a wonderful time in Phuket and I think made extra special of this villa and it's staff. Thank you Joe! Five stars, we will stay here again!

This property is amazing!

Such a great location.. just a few minutes from the beach. This place is obviously not new.. but does not feel old or tired. Everything appears to be in place and fantastically done up. The best part is the staff- they can anticipate your wishes before you can say it. For sure we will be back! Thank you everyone

The villa itself was definitely a highlight of our trip to Thailand

Location is extremely close to the beach, Joe (villa manager) is very knowledgable and helpful! Villa is managed well, definitely worth for the price! The staff are all very kind and the villa itself was definitely a highlight of our trip to Thailand. I would recommend this Airbnb to anyone reading this.

This has been an incredible few months!

Whilst the world continues to struggle with COVID-19 and were in lockdowns in the UK and Australia, we were here in this incredible villa with its breathtaking views... To Mr Jit, Win, Kay and Soe, thank you for carefully and thoughtfully attending to our needs. We have loved every minute of life at Baan Kata Keeree, a truly special part of the world. To hear the birds sing, the waves crashing, and the cat purring, has been so good for the soul. The blue sea and soft sands of Kata Beach will always have a place in my heart.

This really is somewhere special.

What a ridiculously beautiful, relaxing and fantastic place to be. From Bom's neverending list of absolutely delicious cocktails, to the most amazing Thai food we've ever had. This really is somewhere special. Wish we had more time!

5-star Thai hospitality

OVERALL We brought our team ( 11 adults; Ages 25-35) here for our annual retreat and team-building. We have a distributed team, and needed a place where our team could observe and participate in superb customer experience, excursions, team meetings, and other activities. Our team was blown away from day one, and wanted to never leave.

WHO’S IT FOR This is for people who want all options and possibilities open to them, and who appreciate 5-star Thai hospitality. There are no limits. Whatever you want to experience, wherever you want to go, it is available to you. Groups: Families, Teams, Retreats, Friends. You can go with no plan, or with plans and their team will help you execute your itinerary.

MANAGERS Khun Joe and Khun Bom are accessible, attentive, and anticipating. They repeatedly impressed our team with the magic they helped us create. Every request was executed cheerfully and often above our expectations. They also allowed us as much space as we needed — so they were available when we needed them, and were elsewhere when we did not need them. Khun Joe helped us arrange activities with local tour companies — which did not respond to our email inquiries before the trip. Khun Joe called and helped arrange dinners, boat tours, visits to the elephant sanctuary, and our team building activities. Khun Bom kept us organized daily, and arranged meals according to our schedule. Whatever request we had, he made it happen on the spot. Tammy was incredibly helpful before our arrival with quarterbacking the communication between Khun Joe and our team. She helped us all get on the same page, arrange schedules, and also arrange meals to the diet needs of our team.

ACCOMMODATIONS / ENVIRONMENT Serenity and completeness overlooking Kata Beach. The property is sheltered from the crowded and busy beach, and within a 5 minute walk to Kata Beach, and 10 minute walk to Kata Noi beach. Our team especially enjoyed the outdoor lounge the overlooked Kata Beach, where we could meet. We also very much enjoyed the outdoor dining, where we ate many meals together.

FOOD I have to open here, because they blew me away. EAT HERE — especially if you have a group. I’ve spent more than 2 years worth of time in Thailand over the past 10 years, and I’ve eaten all over the country. The food prepared at the villa is superb, fresh, clean, consistent, and delicious. They are able to make a variety of Thai Food, and while we stayed about a week, we had different meals each day. Whatever we wished for — Thai, vegetarian, halal, meat, avocados, pizza, finger foods, fresh coconuts, mangos, fresh espresso drinks — the villa staff made it available and plentiful. And WOW IT IS GOOD! The on-site staff can make authentic Thai taste. They even arranged an ice-cream cake for us! It’s much easier to eat here as a large group because we could get about 5 different dishes and feed 11 people easily without fuss. Khun Bom worked with our team to set meal schedules and menus daily.

ROOMS The rooms surrounding the pool are beautiful and each unique. They are also quiet, so we were able to sleep even when people were playing in the pool. Our team of 11 shared the rooms with room to spare. The air conditioning works wonderfully!!

CLEANLINESS Very clean. Things are up to date. There’s no worn or broken anything. The property is in great condition. The Villa staff also quickly hides outdoor cushions if rain ever starts, and then sets it back out as soon as any rains end.

DRIVER The villa partners with Khun M — who drove and arranged drivers for our group all week long. Khun M is very friendly and knows many places to go. He even rescued a jacket and a wallet from another driver’s van after the items were forgotten. He took us everywhere we needed, and even helped us do shopping for motorcycle parts ( requested by our team ). Khun M. is friendly, kind, and very helpful.

SERVICE This is 5-star Thai service — nothing less. What you wish, Khun Joe and Khun Bom make available. Here are a couple of examples of their magic Christmas Party — They arranged a fully decorated tree, Christmas hats with blinking lights, wrapping paper, and finger foods. Floating Lanterns — Khun Bom arranged a floating lantern ceremony on our last night for each person! Talk about mind-blowing. In-Room Massage — Our team hadn’t had a chance to try Thai Massage, so the villa arranged for 5 of the best local masseuses to come the villa and give massages in-room!! Art materials — Our team produced some presentations, and Khun Bomb helped get art materials for them, including a white board!

AMENITIES Internet - Fast, never any down time or network congestion, even with 11 people on it, doing work. Clothing Washing - Khun Bomb arranged for clothing washing, and it was very inexpensive. This was great for people who packed lightly. Pool - very nice, and saltwater-based. Our team enjoyed playing games here. Surround Sound - We used this during the mornings and also our holiday party. It’s very convenient to play music with your phone’s bluetooth. Living Room - We used this for team meetings and presentations at night. There’s plenty of seating and space for everyone.

LOCATION Whatever you want is available at Kata Beach. There’s plenty of restaurants, beach, massage, etc — it’s all there. Not as lively as Patong, and that fit our preferences. The Villa served us well as a jumping off point to the bulk of Phuket.

BEACH Kata Beach is beautiful and long, and calm in the mornings. Our team did morning runs on the near-empty sands. The beach tends to get pretty full by noon. The villa overlooks Kata beach, but is far enough away that no noise or tourists stumble from the beach to the villa. Kata Noi is nearby

What a joy. What a delight

Dear Friends and Fellow Travellers, what a delightful and wonderful hove filled with light and love, we are all truly fortunate to have found this part of Phuket. A beautiful villa poised over the white sands of Kata Beach... we were fortunate to find this haven. With the wonderful team of Joe/Jit and their fantastic team of chefs and polite staff we became part of a family and we guided to many wonderful experiences. What a joy. What a delight.

The best ever!

Halfway through our 9th stay over the last 15 years, we are still as enthusiastic as we were in 2004, when we first stayed at the house with some friends. We are just a bit older, but actually, not that much... The staff is as friendly and efficient as ever, the owners take wonderful care of their house, every detail has been thought of and though our children are now all grown and have family of their own, this is THE place we enjoy spending time all together. Hope to live at least till 100 to be able to come back again and again for a looooong time.

We were in paradise!

We spend 9 nights in total with 7 friends and we had a wonderful time. The staff was very attentive, the villa and its garden located on a superb spot, whitin 5 minutes from Kata beach. The cooking was just fantastic, said that, you don´t even want to find out what´s Else out there. :-) We did some nice stuff like scuba diving, Jet skiing, watching Thai boxing matches, massages and Hot Yoga, hiring Scooters, etc. In the end, like always, the time flew to fast and we had to go back home to cold Switzerland. But we will be back for shure. Thank you very much for this nice experience.
