 If you worry that staying in a gated community means dealing with intrusive neighbours and beating them to the sun beds in the morning, think again. As soon as you close the front door at Baan Sarika you're in a private, exclusive world and free to relax in your own space, surrounded by tropical extravagance. The decor may be a little magniloquent for a beach villa, but at least you never forget you're in Thailand and once you slip on your bathers and flop into the pool, you quickly get used to feeling like a royal guest.     

A team of staff take care of the entire estate, and as a guest at Baan Sarika you enjoy VIP treatment (although you can stipulate the amount of attention you receive!). Mealtimes are almost as much of a pleasure as the down time in between, most of which is easily spent doing very little in a horizontal pose.     

When you yearn for life's simple pleasures, you can wander along the quiet beach to watch the fishermen bring in their catch or just gaze over the calm waters to the small islands on the horizon. Although you share the beach with other guests and residents, this part of the island never feels crowded and local island life continues around you undisturbed. This is the kind of villa that inspires a long, satisfied sigh.

Highlights

The two comfortable salas are an absolute delight and great places to spend your day. Thai artwork and artefacts have been thoughtfully placed throughout the property giving it a traditional, sophisticated ambiance.

Surprises

Some of the furniture is a little ornate, which may not be to everyone’s taste, but does lend the villa its unique charm. Peace and quiet predominate in this part of the island, although being part of a gated estate doesn’t afford as much privacy as some people may like and proximity to other villas means a degree of noise from neighbours is inevitable. However the estate does ensure a sense of security and increases the chance of making some new friends – especially handy for families with children.
