Sava Beach Villas - Villa Essenza Reviews


Our Review

Bold and bright, Villa Essenza has a futuristic design, yet the ambiance is cheerful, relaxed, and feels just right for the tropical setting. It’s easy to settle in, whip open the heavy glass doors and let the sea breezes flow as generously as the champagne that you’ll crack open to celebrate arriving at one of Thailand’s most beautiful, peaceful beaches. The staff are equally as cheerful, and the maid always seemed to magically arrive just when a glass needed filling or a towel sourced. Though families are welcome, the sophisticated Sava leans more towards groups of adults – more ‘hen party’ hang-out than mother hens’ nest. We didn’t party during our stay (we had work to do!) but with the elaborate entertainment system, barbecue facilities, the chef and the divine open layout, a garden soiree is a must-do here. We were told that all the holiday villas in this estate have played host to some great events and weddings, and the management company can liaise with local event planners to help with larger events needing more staff and services.

With its six bedrooms arranged in two separate wings, the villa’s ideally laid out for two families or groups wanting to share a holiday without being on top of one another. Although there’s plenty of privacy here, and peace and quiet abound in large doses, the villa is part of an estate so it lacks the feel of a total hideaway. Yet under the starlit tropical sky, cocktail in hand, with only the lapping waves disturbing the silence, it felt as though we had the whole beach, indeed the whole world, all to ourselves. Bliss.

Highlights

Sand, sea, sunsets! The beachfront setting is superb, the views wide and wonderful. There’s also a huge amount of garden space to enjoy – we used only a fraction of the area available to us at the front and back of the villa. We loved opening up the ‘disappearing’ glass doors through the entire living area – a refreshing way to greet the morning. The staff and facilities are all first class; we were never left wanting for anything.

Surprises

With the open pool and proximity to the sea, parents will need to keep a close watch on their young ones. The upstairs master suite does not have a bathtub – such a pity, with those incredible views! Those yearning for romantic sea-view soaks will be battling for the ground-floor master bedroom.

Dearest team, Thank you for the wonderful hospitality for the past four days. The food was amazing and we never had a chance to feel hungry! Everyone enjoyed the pool and utilities. Unfortunately, we came during the monsoon season and the weather kept us indoors. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and wish the team all the best

Dear Pui, Noym and the Team, What an amazing experience! While the villa was second to none, the service and attention that you provide, made us feel like it was our second home. The food was delectable! A million thanks for all you have done, including keeping the little ones out of trouble! Much Love

Fabulous three nights of staying here! Great view, awesome food, professional and friendly staff who had initiative to know what we needed even before asking. Spacious villa, good pool size for eleven of us. BBQ Dinner was fantastic too! We will miss this villa. Thank you for being so awesome!
