Maan Tawan - Thee Sahm Raan Reviews


Our Review

Overall Rating:

Villa Thee Sahm Raan is one of the most balanced, well thought out and best presented villas we have seen in Phuket – it is probably why the owners use it a lot. It is the perfect holiday retreat for families or groups. The villa is clean, safe and enclosed, although the swimming pool is not fenced so non-swimmers would need to be watched. During our inspection we found the kitchen to be fully equipped – although the maid will do the cooking and grocery shopping if you want to escape those chores (provisions are on guest account).

The villa’s location is awesome – great beaches nearby, and convenient for restaurants, services, food and other shopping.

We revisited the villa three years after our first stay and were impressed to find that more facilities (including a computer and printer) and services have been added, thus we’re raising the review score a notch to reflect this. As well, Thee Sahm Raan is showing no signs of age – it is kept in pristine condition throughout.

Highlights

Outdoor living at its best … blue skies, sea breezes, privacy and luxury. The beaches at Layan and north Bang Tao are exceptional. After the beach, you can relax poolside in the shaded comfort of the sala. If you are looking for some real pampering, the Banyan Tree Spa is world-class and unforgettable – bookings are essential.

Surprises

We found no unpleasant surprises. The immediate area is slightly isolated, so we would recommend hiring a car or contacting the reliable taxi service in Laguna. The road immediately outside the estate is not great so do drive with care. (Alternatively, the villa can provide a car and driver at extra cost.) The superb beach is right next to the Maan Tawan Estate but to get there does involve a two-minute walk because of some fences.
