L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Phala A1 Reviews

With its gorgeous sea-view setting in the Patong hills, we found Villa Phala A1 to be the perfect place to enjoy opulent surrounds and some good old-fashioned pampering. ‘Carefree’ best describes the experience here, with a great range of facilities, services and attractions easily available and close at hand. Our time was nicely varied: one day we retreated from the world completely and lounged by the pool, ordering our meals in and catching up on some reading. Another day we wandered down the hill and plunged into Patong’s busy hawker-lined streets and shopping arcades.

We were impressed with the level of care taken in both the villa’s design and upkeep. L’Orchidée clearly runs a tight ship, with a large team of staff and contractors providing service for 25 villas – keeping the villa and the entire estate neat, tidy, and looking brand new even though it was built in 2006. Service is efficient and professional; all of our requests were understood and taken care of. In all, we found Villa Phala to be an ideal holiday home, offering ample opportunity for both exploration and utter relaxation for people of all ages. Kids especially will delight in having a choice to play in the villa’s private pool or hang out with other children in the shared pool and shallow children’s pool at the clubhouse, just a few minutes’ walk away.

Highlights

The stunning sea views are about as good as it gets and the villa’s design takes full advantage of the view wherever possible, especially at the spacious pool area, where the evening sky’s hues can be enjoyed to the full. Night-time views are equally as impressive, with Patong’s city lights stretching across the valley below. We also enjoyed the friendly and efficient service throughout our stay.

Surprises

The villas within the estate are quite close to each other, intruding somewhat upon a complete sense of privacy, though Phala A1 benefits from being near the top of the hill. Stairs and steep hills throughout the estate will be difficult for some to manage, though the free buggy service is a big help.
