There are 7 ‘Cielos’ in Sava Villas situates in Phang Nga Province. The main entrance has a gate with a security guards which is good. Our driver took us to the wrong cielo (supposed to go to Cielo 3) as there is no sign of the cielo number at all. For the same reason, wrong visitors occurred during our 5-day accommodation here.
The ambiance, house setting, facilities has not much difference to the photos of the management office. Wifi connection was unstable, easily disconnected and was frequently asked to re-enter the password. The indoor temperature / pest control was satisfactory. Televisions are set to work on apple tv though local channels seemed not available. The outdoor swimming pool is fully sun exposed during most of the day. The beauty of this villa was, the high ceiling & extraordinary spacious washrooms but only 2 out of 6 have bathtubs.
We have a villa manager (Aom), a chef (Pia), two maids and a handy man. Their services, table setting, house cleaning were at hotel class. We had BBQ, thai / seafood cuisines, all lived to our expectation. Pia has a spot-on sauce (we called it ‘green sauce’ that made of coriander, lime juice, garlic and 2 more ingredients) that it goes perfectly well with seafood but we requested to have it prepared for all meal. Upon request, Aom assisted to arrange some therapists for a 90-min body massage at B1800++. We found that they were not too thai-style but rather Swedish. Downside is, you could only have the treatment performed either at the outdoor beach front shaded area (we were fear of mosquito bites) or in your own room with their provided mats on the floor.
For budget wise, extraordinary house service, outdoor swimming pool with partly shade, steady wifi connection, boat pick up from the beach in front of the villa, we prefer villa Inasia in Koh Samui.
