L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Suriya B2 Reviews

With its stunning sea-view location in a luxury enclave and close access to many island attractions, we truly enjoyed the best of both worlds at Villa Suriya. We relished the choice of either spending our days in pampered elegance relaxing by the pool and venturing out for a quiet stroll along Patong’s sands; or enjoying a night out on the town in the knowledge that it was only a short taxi ride back to our quiet villa. Having two master suites is a real plus for extended families or travelling couples, and we especially welcomed the high level of privacy offered by their downstairs location.

Though a chef and in-villa staff can be provided on request (extra charge), we were happy enough with the daily maid service and with the innovative Thai dishes we had delivered from the estate’s central kitchen. A large team of staff and contractors are employed to keep the estate in tip-top condition, and it really shows.

We did not bring our children along for this visit, but we think they would have had great fun swimming at the villa’s pool and watching the big cable TV (with a cartoon channel). And having the shared children’s pool nearby offers even more play-time options. Though there’s plenty to keep everyone busy in nearby Patong, the management team can arrange yacht trips, rounds of golf and other excursions, as well as in-villa massages which, much to our dismay, we ran out of time to try.

Highlights

The incredible view was an unending source of inspiration throughout our stay. A beautiful glittering sea, magnificent sunsets, and the twinkle of Patong's lights at night were enjoyed especially from the terrace and pool area. The quality craftsmanship and high level maintenance make the villa look brand new even though it was built in 2006, and the service provided by the L'Orchidée team was notably efficient and friendly.

Surprises

The villas within the estate are quite close to each other and, while they are arranged sensitively, an impression of total privacy is lacking. The third bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, but lacks a sea view. Stairs and steep hills will be difficult for some to manage, though the buggy service helps immensely.
