We have had the most amazing time at Villa Jasmine.
The staff have been amazing and really took care of us. They are so kind and any requests we had were handled very efficiently and always with a smile. The villa is absolutely perfect. The location is great and we had everything we needed. We will definitely recommend the villa to our friends and we will definitely come back :-)

Brian's response: 我很高兴红琳和她的朋友们喜欢茉莉花别墅。 我们对最后一天主水泵坏了感到非常抱歉，我的工作人员试图进行临时维修，但那天是政府假期（母亲节），我们直到第二天才能购买新的主水泵。 尽管如此，还是感谢您给予的五颗星，我们希望您很快能再次回来 - 我们将提供免费晚餐供大家说声抱歉！

Beautiful and Comfortable
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Villa Malee. The villa was beautiful and comfortable, with plenty of space for all of us. We really appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, private pool, and proximity to Kata Beach. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Although the villa was a short walk from the beach, we really enjoyed being up on the hillside. The views were beautiful and the air was so fresh and clean. It was also very peaceful and private compared to being right on the beach. The service was excellent - the staff were so thoughtful and attentive to our needs. The dinner provided was absolutely delicious. A highlight for us was the swimming pool, which we made good use of during our stay. Despite being a little away from the beach, the tranquil setting, top-notch service, tasty food, and pool made this a wonderful place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed Phuket and our experience at Villa Malee exceeded our expectations. We will happily recommend it to any friends or family looking for a high-quality villa accommodation near Kata Beach.
Ingrid, The Gold Coast, Australia
Our group of 8 adults occupied this magnificent villa very comfortably. The 4 assigned maids went above and beyond their duties, they were extremely courteous and unobtrusive and made delicious breakfasts every day 🍌🍍🥭🍎🥯🥞🥓🍳👌. Our concierge Kuhn Noi was a delight and organised a wonderful birthday lunch on our last day. Truly grateful to all for a fabulous stay. The best place in Phuket is the top deck of the villa (you'll see what I mean when you get there). The villa is built on quite a steep hillside, if walking to and from, you should have reasonable fitness. Golfers? Worth noting the villa's owner is a member of Red Mountain and Loch Palm Golf clubs. 🥂
The villa is so clean, comfort. Noi and her team work hard. They prepare most delicious food for breakfast and dinner. We have a great holiday. Thanks for all.
Andre, Queensland, Australia
Villa Malee is great. We highly recommend it. Thank you for a great holiday.

Excellent for eight guests (Four couples)
Villa Jasmine was excellent for eight adult guests. The staff were beautiful and couldn't do enough for us. It was nice sitting around the pool at night and not having to share it with other tourists. Nothing was a problem. We had a wonderful two weeks.
Hans, Texas, USA
We just stayed at Villa Malee at the end of a 2 week trip to Cambodia and Thailand. Brian the owner communicated regarding the process and all in all, everything was easy and a perfect ending to our vacation. The staff are incredibly talented and attentive. Noi, the manager responds to any question at any time almost immediately. The house was spotless and is cleaned daily by the staff. Muay, the cook is amazing. Whatever you ask her to prepare is done perfectly and she is a sweet woman. It was my wife's favorite part of the vacation.

Amazing Stay From Start to Finish
We have stayed in many vacation homes around the world, Villa Malee surpassed them all. Communication with Brian was excellent. Cannot say enough good things about the Staff. Some of the most kind and caring people you will ever meet. They all took such great care of us. Fabulous cooks! They were like little fairies that just seemed to know when you needed something and would magically appear. The Villa itself was immaculate in every way. Comfortable beds and lots of nice linens. Plenty of hot water with good pressure. The pool was crystal clear and cleaned each morning. Good location with short walk into town. However, taxis were cheap and quick to arrive. We appreciated the security safes found in each bedroom. Truthfully, never felt the need to use them, as we felt entirely secure with the staff. Highly recommend Brian's lovely home. You won't be sorry you stayed here. Thank you so much to Khun Noi, Mhoo, Mhee, Natty, and my very special gem, Moay. It was difficult driving away with them waving us goodbye. A tearful and heart-warming moment. And thank you, Brian, for providing such a wonderful stay!
Jason Widner, Washington
Amazing vacation stay at Villa Malee. The staff were very attentive and made sure that our stay was exactly what we wanted! Brian and Khun Noi were very friendly and responsive as well. We have already booked our return trip and we highly recommend this property for any group looking to be spoiled. Thank you Brian!
Laurent Lamarlere, London
Villa as described
As described, great villa, great location with lots of restaurants and beautiful beaches to go to. Also, a super friendly staff that made our stay peaceful throughout the entire stay, especially for the kids! Highly recommended!
The chef's cooking was delicious!
David Cronk - Singapore
This is the second time we’ve stayed at Brian’s home and it was just as wonderful as the first time. We’d not hesitate to come back or recommend his place to friends! The staff are amazing and looked after us so well. A great spot for families, a group of friends…close to the beach and anything you could need.
Mohit Bhatia - Surrey, Canada
The Villa is excellent
Neat with all the amenities. Food is cooked on premise and tastes wonderful. Thai and western dishes. We had most of the meals at the villa. Noi and team take care of all your preferences. We made good use of the swimming pool - which is well maintained. Highly recommended and would definitely visit again.
Ling. Hong Kong
Staff very helpful
Laurence, Roger, Christelle, Denis and Dave. Tolochenaz , Switzerland
Here we are all back after good trips. We would like to thank you for this wonderful stay in Villa Jasmine during which everything went very well. We have found your property as described - all of your description is correct. A special mention for your staff who took great care of us. The prepared meals were a real success. It's a standing ovation! If we have the opportunity, we will not hesitate to come back to you and we will not fail to recommend your villas to our acquaintances and friends. Thank you again for everything and good luck to you and your family.
Mark Povalski, Michigan, USA
Coming back in 2025!
Hi Brian and Hi Prada, Both you and Prada have been very gracious hosts for all of us. Thanks for organizing the golf for me and the girls. All of your restaurants were big hits. You are very nice people. We will be back to Phuket in 2025 for at least four weeks, maybe longer. I will be communicating with you shortly to arrange staying here again. We had a wonderful time, the staff was very good and the car was surely needed.
Summer Xia - Hong Kong
Amazing stay at Villa Malee. Professional staff and nice environment. Host Brian is very welcoming and available at any time. I really envy his lifestyle in Phuket because it is exactly my dream lifestyle after retirement.
Julie Wagstaffe - UK
We had a fabulous time at Villa Jasmine. The location, the luxurious property, the amazing staff, who couldn’t possibly do more. The food was so good, cooked by the staff that we ate in, as the food couldn’t be beaten, it was so special and relaxed. Anything we wanted and the lovely Noi sorted it for us, from booking taxis, boat trips and even showed us how to cook authentic Thai food. Honestly I can’t recommend the Villa enough. Also If you like golf, you couldn’t be in better company than with Brian and Prada, who looked after our party so well.
Alistair Cochran - Hong Kong
We loved the stay at Villa Jasmine.
We were a party of 2 families each with 3 small kids. In total 10 of us. From booking through checkin, during the stay and check out we were totally taken care of by Brian and his team. The villa is managed day to day by Khun Noi who has 3 staff available for any request. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners were prepared and cooked. In my opinion the food in the villa was as good if not better than anything outside we could have found - the ingredients freshly bought and meals were all our Thai favourites plus some new ones we hadn't tried before. The villa itself is lovely, the location is walkable to Kata Beach and outside the hustle enough to unwind and relax. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the beautiful sunsets with a few drinks after a long day. We cannot recommend this place enough, you won't be disappointed ! Will come back soon I hope!
Alex Bruce Cookham - UK
Would highly recommend this property and the staff 5stars!
Stunning property with amazing views out to the ocean. Very comfortable living space. Highly recommend this villa, the staff were very attentive and very friendly. Catered for all our needs. can't fault the stay.
Steve Antcliffe - UK
What an amazing 6 star villa!
Furnished and equipped to the highest standard. The pool is so relaxing and to have this just outside your superluxury living area is sheer heaven. The photos you see on the website are actually as it is, no wide angle lens or photo shop. Staff are friendly and efficient, no job too much for them. Brian is the perfect host as well. I suppose the best thing you could say about a holiday villa is that you want to return. Well I don't want to return , I want to live here!!
Tiffany Paton-Phillips - Germany
Villa Malee has everything you could ever want for a luxury holiday and so much more!
We were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks at this amazing villa in Phuket recently. Villa Malee has everything you could ever want for a luxury holiday and so much more! Villa Malee staff are fantastic. There is an extensive menu of delicious Thai specialities but they can also make some tasty Western dishes too. Nothing is too much trouble. The four bedrooms are downstairs from the main living area and pool, this means that they keep nice and cool. The raised area above the pool is perfect to sip something chilled as you watch the sun set. It truly is a magical place.
Birgitte Vahl Valbæk - Denmark
Vacation of your dreams
We have been to Villa Jasmine and Villa Malee twice and it already feels like our second home. Being recognized by Khu Noi on arrival and a smiling team is the best start you could wish for. They are always ready to help and make the holiday as pleasant as possible. There are many good restaurants in Phuket - but the best is 'at home'. On behalf of ourselves, our kids and grandkids and the rest of the family members – best place to spend a vacation. See you again, Brian and Khu Noi
Jeremy and Alessandra Dixon - Dubai
OUR EIGHTH VISIT
The fact that we have just returned from our 8th visit to Villa Jasmine tells you that it ticks all the boxes when it comes to the perfect holiday accommodation and then some. We happily stumbled on the website for Jasmine and its sister house Malee some 13 years ago and it’s been our tropical home away from home ever since. We love being able to spread out and have personal space and enjoy eating and drinking at supermarket prices; only we are not the ones doing the shopping or cooking—truly the best of both worlds!
Believe the glowing reviews you read below – it’s all true, and yes the house does look like the pictures which is not something that can be said of a lot of accommodation advertised online nowadays.
Brian is a friendly and efficient host to deal with and house manager Khun Noi is a gem who can answer any question, book any trip and solve any problem. The live-in staff keep the villa spotless and can cook the most delicious meals on request.
Having toured Phuket extensively over our many visits we can confirm that Kata really is the ideal location; a quieter “village “ type atmosphere with a truly beautiful beach but yet a short drive to nightlife or the historic old town.
Thanks Jasmine team, a wonderful visit as usual; see you again soon.
Claire Dore - UK
Loved Villa Jasmine. And the girls were amazing. Thank you for everything
Thank you for the most incredible stay. Villa Jasmine was beautiful. Very comfortable. Great pool. And amazing staff to look after us.
Jan and family - Denmark
NOTHING TO IMPROVE
the Staff and Khu Noi took very good care of us, as always. We had a fantastic time in the villas and the families were very pleased, so very sad to say there is nothing to improve 😉 Thanks for this time, we hope to see you and the fantastic Villas again 🙏🏻
Chekib & Family - Hong Kong
We stayed at villa Jasmine for 6 weeks
A very comfortable house for a long stay. As a family of 5, with 3 children. Our stay was very comfortable, and we felt at home from the beginning. The villa is spacious and very well equipped. The view from the terrace and swimming pool over Kata is very nice. The service from the on-site maid, Mon, and especially from Noi, was excellent. We didn’t have access to a washing machine, which would have been helpful while staying for so long. On the other side it’s easy to get laundry done outside. In all a very good stay and would highly recommend Villa Jasmine.
Response from Brian:
Hi Chekib, Great that you and your family enjoyed your long stay in Villa Jasmine. We change all linen, bedding and towels at least every three days, so our washing and drying machines are virtually always in use. Our laundry service does a wonderful job with your laundry returned within 24 hours, washed, dried and carefully pressed for less than 3 US Dollars per kilo - it is fantastic value. Having said that, if I had known you wanted to use the washing machines yourself, I would of course said yes - the message never got to me. I have now told Khun Noi that if guests wish to use the washing machines themselves, they must be permitted to do so!
Aude & Cédric, Hong Kong
Our family has had a great six weeks stay in Villa Malee
Thank you very much for your diligence and kindness. We have also warmly thanked the staff, the ladies in the house, the handy man and of course Noi. They are truly helpful, great and nice people. We have really enjoyed our stay, the kids were very happy, and we have had a very nice family time together - some refreshing and enjoyable moments after 2 years of painful Covid background. By the way we have used Five Star Marine for our boat trips, and they were really professional and nice, with a decent price, a great tip from you. Thank you very much Brian again, and our best wishes.
Sharon and Michael, England
Brian is a superb host of two villas, Villa Malee and Villa Jasmine in Kata, Phuket. From the moment we arrived at Villa Jasmine, we were treated so special by all the staff at the Villa, namely Muay, Mon, Mhoo and Khun Noi the Manager. They were all there to greet us on our arrival. The villa is set on a hillside; therefore the views are spectacular looking out towards Kata and the sea beyond, with beautiful sunsets on a nighttime. As the Villa is designed to make the most of these views, the living quarters are all upstairs, with a beautiful infinity pool with Jacuzzi and elephant fountain, leading from every open door to the outside. There is a beautiful sunbathing area with beds and mattresses and umbrellas for shade, and a separate shaded area with seating also. The pool also has a children's pool attached to it, so it is ideal for families with children. There is an outside shower which is very handy and an inside toilet upstairs. On this same floor was a magnificent kitchen, with everything you could possibly need to cook your own meals, although staff were on hand to do this for you if you so wished. An enormous dining room table was also next to the kitchen, which is perfect for family meals/or get togethers. Also, on this floor is a large sitting room with two large sofas and what looked like a mini library, with many books that guests could read to pass their time away in absolute tranquility. There was also a large television in this room. Downstairs, there are four beautiful en-suite bedrooms, each with their own television, leading off from a large entrance hall, absolutely perfect if staying with family, as everyone has their own personal space. We stayed at the Villa for nearly six weeks, and it was the most relaxing, tranquil place we have ever encountered. Muay and Mon were there in a heartbeat if you needed them and Khun Noi was available 24/7 by phone, if you needed her, which was very reassuring. Our time at the Villa absolutely flew by. We had our last few days in another hotel before we had to leave for England and were so surprised when Khun Noi arrived at our hotel, wishing us both the best before our return home, but still offering that if we needed any help, she was still there for us on the other end of the phone. Thanks to Brian and all the staff at Villa Jasmine for making our holiday so perfect and we hope to stay again in the future.

Andy, Florida, USA.
I cannot recommend it enough .... We LOVED our stay here!!
The stay at the Jasmine villa was nothing short of amazing. With wonderful staff ready to fulfill our needs at the moment's notice, beautiful, clean rooms and private setting. We all felt like in paradise and agreed to stay here again whenever back in Phuket. I can't recommend it enough, LOVED IT!! There was absolutely nothing that we didn't like about our stay at the villa.
Brian and his partner Prada are genuinely 1st class hosts
There is a team here at Villa Malee who will cater for your every need. Villa Malee is amazing with its beautiful pool made for relaxing if you just don't want to go out. The girls who work at the Villa cleaning, cooking, or shopping for you are 5*+ with the manageress Khun Noi on basically 24hr standby should you need any help with anything. They are just fantastic!! If you're thinking of booking it, don't hesitate just do it, you will not regret it. This is my 17th year coming to Thailand and I have just spent two weeks in Villa Malee. This has been my most memorable trip by far because of these guys. I will be back 100% for real to stay here at this amazing Villa. Brian is also well connected along with Prada to pretty much every golf course on Phuket and has introduced me to some new golfing friends so if golf is your poison, then you are in for a treat. I can't thank the whole team enough for how good they have made my stay here. Thank you all so much.
Allison Blancho, France
The Staff was extremely kind and discreet
Good Morning dear Brian, Thank you very much for your email. We had a wonderful family stay at Villa Malee. The staff was extremely kind & discreet, and the service was impeccable. The Villa itself is very convenient for a family and we very much enjoyed the location close to Kata Beach. I will write to Inspiring Villas too. Thank you again and see you soon 🙂
Simron Rayat, Australia
None of the travellers with me were affected by the coronavirus
It was good to see so many facilities in Thailand providing hand sanitises. We were all welcomed back into the country with no problems. Our stay at Villa Jasmine was excellent. Your hospitality and the staff friendliness was the standout qualities of the villa. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Villa Jasmine.

Ocean Views from luxury private pool, full staff including chef and concierge
We just returned from a week at Villa Malee, and there just isn't enough praise we can give! From the minute you book, to safely arriving back home, the owner Brian is in contact making sure everything is seamless! Immediately walking off of the plane we were greeted by our driver and swiftly whisked away to our paradise. The house is spacious and impeccably clean. The house staff Muay, Mon, and the house manager Noi are beyond 5 star! They cook the most amazing food and pamper you in every way. Every ride and outing was promptly taken care of without a moments hesitation. From water, to a cooler full of refreshments by the pool........they do not miss a thing. We are a family of 5 and parents and each child had their OWN room and bathroom. I honestly cannot imagine our time in Phuket being anywhere other than Villa Malee! It is far better than any resort! Do not hesitate , you cannot go wrong booking ANY of Brians properties!
Asta Uvsitalo and the crew, Finland
The Villa Jasmine was everything we expected
It was in a peaceful area. The rooms were good size as they show in the pictures. It was clean and neat. Kitchen was always clean and upstairs was spacious. The pool was a good size and the view was amazing. The cooks made amazing dinners :) the pool's cold box was always full of drinks. :) we were a family of 8 people and we had a great time in Villa jasmine. Laundry left in the morning and came back super clean next day. Air con worked in every room, upstairs you didn't really need it. Nice breeze every now and then blows in from the pool area. Close distance to the Kata and Karon beach, and not even that far from Patong beach. Every day sun shining to the pool. Everything from booking to arriving and accommodation and leaving went great. Khun Noi was always available and ready to help. When you think of a holiday! This is the kind it is supposed to be. Thank you for the amazing holiday in your amazing villa! :)
Tricia Wiley. UK
Highly recommend! You will NOT be disappointed!
If you book to stay here you will not be disappointed! The owner, Manager and team look after your every need and go above and beyond! The property is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The pool is lovely and warm and cleaned daily. There is a fantastic chill out area which is out of the sun which we maximised in the evenings to relax. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need. Bedrooms and ensuites were perfect and had both ceiling fans and aircon. From first booking Brian the owner was brilliant with exceptional communication. He even arranged a few rounds of golf for us with him and his partner along with club hire at a reasonable cost. On arrival the welcome was amazing and we felt at home and taken care of. Nothing was too much even popping to the shop to buy some wine for us! We ate at the villa several nights and it is better than any restaurant food and we were only charged the cost of the food which was very reasonable. Meuy who stayed at the property with us was discreet but there when we needed her. Arranging for washing to be done at a very low cost and even doing some ironing. We rented the Villa for a birthday celebration and they helped organise everything including a yummy cake! Noi the Manager checked in with us on a regular basis and helped us to organise excursions and gave us great recommendations. I have nothing negative to say and if you want to have the most wonderful holiday then this is the place to go! We will certainly be going back very soon! Worth every penny! Thank you to all the team for their hard work and for making it a holiday of a lifetime! Exceptional!
Tim Collier, Bangkok, Thailand
Great villa, great location, great service
The team at the villa went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make the holiday fun and relaxing. The breakfast and dinners cooked for us were fantastic. We had a great stay at the villa. The place is great and Khun Noi and the team went out of their way to ensure we were well looked after. We were particularly impressed with the standard of the breakfast and dinners. The food was much better than many hotels and restaurants we have visited. Thanks for letting us stay. We hope to be back again in the future.
Ari Ojala Party, Turku, Finland
This was our eleventh time in Thailand and one of the best!
Our Holiday was perfect and everything went well. Villa Malee was very clean and just suitable for us. Meals were very tasty and the staff was very friendly and professional. This was our eleventh time in Thailand and one of the best! Greetings to the staff for their good service and thanks to you for the quick replies to my mails. We may be back!

Ocean Views from luxury private pool, full staff including chef and concierge
As described and Professionally Well Done. The owner Brian was a joy to work with; he was professional from the start, with promptness and accurate information. The property was as advertised, innkeeper/concierge manager was as equally communicative via WhatsApp and the professional staff was responsive and friendly. I felt very safe working with HomeAway policy, but it was Brian’s professionalism that sealed the deal. The whole experience of our stay at Villa Jasmine, from the complimentary Airport Transfer of day one to the day we left 7 days later, was flawless, comfortable and enjoyable. The property is easy to get to (it is an hour ride from airport without traffic); 5 minutes to beautiful Kata Beach, Promthrep Cape, 10 minutes to Old Phuket Town, Chalong Marina (all kinds of boat rides), 1/2 hour to various animal shows/rides and an elephant sanctuary. Quiet enough to avoid too many tourists (like Patong Beach), but not short of night markets and good restaurants. The kiddie's pool, efficient kitchen and updated utilities helped make the stay with children, and various generations of families, easy. The Concierge, Khun Noi, is just a WhatsApp text and call away for requests and answers. Our vacation was also made easier with the villa recommended tour company; reasonable prices too. Definitely will work with Brian again should we decide to visit Phuket again. Highly recommended

This is a Must Try place to stay in Phuket
Great place and wonderful staff you have there. Last but not the least the best dinner ever!

Relax beside your Sea View Infinity Pool, personal chef and staff will provide
My extended family and I (5 adults and 2 children 4yo and 18mths) spent 7 nights at Villa Jasmine. From the first night we arrived there was no issues and everything was catered for. After a long plane trip and 1 hr bus ride we arrived at the villa and dinner and drinks were there waiting for us. Every day and night after continued to be so easy. The day before we would tell our in-house maids what we liked for dinner and breakfast (some nights we just told them to choose) and what time. After that they did the rest. The food was simply amazing and better than any local cuisine and easier. Depending on what we chose for dinner the price was about $70 - $80AUD for 5 dishes (whole fish, fried rice, veggies, curries, stir fry....etc). That’s for all of us. Just great value. And the drinks were cheaper then on the street. You can’t go wrong with this place. We will be coming back. Overall the bill was $1200AUD each adult (5). Which included Breakfast, Dinner, Accomodation, any special requests (like sparkling water, ice cream) and beer and soft drink. Spirits can also be purchased however we didn’t go there. However prices were responsible. The rooms were spacious and cleaned everyday. Each room had an en-suite so everyone had there space. A baby cot and high chair was provided also. The rooms are downstairs and living/dining/pool upstairs so no one gets disturbed. Noi (villa Manager) is always contactable via Whatsup or through the maids to organise anything you want. We had massages in the villa for 100baht ($5AUD) more than on the street. It would cost us 400baht for a round trip to the shop. No brainer. Noi also organised tuk tuk at the drop of the hat and trips to the elephant sanctuary with tour operator Otto. The maids were so lovely and nothing was too much to ask. They were great with the kids and would play with them giving us a little break. We would like to thank Noi and her team for a fantastic week. Our family loved it.

We shall come back again
总体很赞 很适合带老人和孩子一起度假｡You can get everything under one roof We shall come back again
Aparna Sharma, California, USA
I am pleased to write a 5 star review.
Our Phuket family trip couldn't have been better than this one. Brian and his whole crew - Noi, Nuch, Muay, and Mhoo were above and beyond in serving us, ensuring we are comfortable and enjoy every moment during our stay.
The moment I confirmed the booking of Jasmine villa, Brian & Noi started communication via email/WhatsApp and were available for all my queries, making all the arrangements, services we needed during our stay
NOI - She is so loving and light-hearted. She was our point of contact to get anything we needed in Phuket. We never had to worry about figuring out 'what, where, how.' You ask Noi, and she will make it available for you at very reasonable prices.
NUCH - The best Thai food we ever had was from Nuch. We were a family of 6 adults & 2 kids. Thai is our favorite cuisine except my dad :). Since most of my family is vegetarian, Nuch modified her dishes, as per my instructions, to vegetarian dishes but still retained the authentic Thai flavors in the food.
MUAY - Such a sweetheart with a big smile on her face all the time. She was helping Nuch in the kitchen with dishes and other household services
MHOO - You will not see him a lot and might forget about him. But he is working behind the scene with getting all the groceries and anything you need from the market.
Breakfast was inclusive of the stay. We ate almost every dinner meal at the Villa prepared by Nuch at a very reasonable price. The total expense for six days( includes dinner, food/fruits from the supermarket, laundry, snacks, drinks, beer, etc.) was around USD 367( 11167 baht), which is so nominal for the services offered by Noi & her staff.
THANK YOU - Brian, Noi, Nuch, Muay, Mhoo, for making our stay a pleasant and memorable family trip. Whenever we plan a trip again to Phuket, will be staying at villa Jasmine or Malee.
I have already started recommending your Villa Jasmine to our friends and family 😊. We have been sharing our great experience and services your staff offered us.
Surely, you and your staff deserve five star ratings. Many thanks to your crew for making our stay and family vacation so pleasant and enjoyable in Phuket
Siegrid Yu - USA
Can’t wait to come back sometime. Couldn’t have stayed at a better place. Staff was helpful, friendly and great cooks!
Todd Humphries, Vancouver, Canada
Unbelievable family vacation. The owner Brian was outstanding dealing with leading up to the stay. The staff at the Villa (Muay and Mon) were the best! They were so respectful, professional and the best chefs in all of Thailand! The food was so good, I think we only ate out once. The villa was exactly as advertised. If you want to feel like royalty and truly settle into a once in a lifetime vacation book the Villa Malee or the Villa Jasmine through Brian...you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Brian!
Carla Hyland. Singapore
Fantastic stay at Villa Jasmine
Our party, ranging from 70 years old to 2 years old had the most wonderful stay at Villa Jasmine. The property is perfect for young family’s with safe outdoors area, kids section of pool and bedrooms that are dark and quiet downstairs. The property is spacious, very well maintained and spotless. The real highlight was the cooking of the Villa staff who gave us the most amazing dinner each evening, and better than any restaurant we ate in. We ate and drank to our hearts content at hugely reasonable costs. We can’t thank the villa staff enough for a wonderful stay. We had the most wonderful stay, please thank your staff, they are amazing. The food they cooked was incredible, best I have had in my many visits to Thailand.
Harold Washington, U.S.A.
The staff, property, location, and views were all amazing!! If you are going to Phuket this is where you want to stay! My friends and I were 100% satisfied and we are already planning our next trip back to stay in this same property!
Ali Rana - Dubai, UAE
The staff is beyond belief
Brian's Villa and everything that comes with it has easily been our best AirBnb. We were a group of 8 and each and everyone had a blast. The level of detail and caretaking done by the staff is beyond belief. Would 13/10 recommend to everyone else.
Wendy Payne, Western Australia
We booked this villa for my moms birthday and had family coming from the UK to join us from Perth, Australia. The 4 family members that came from the UK were picked up in the morning and as Brain didn’t have a booking the previous night he kindly let them check in early at no extra cost. We arrived from Perth in the afternoon and as had our family in the morning, were greeted with a nice cold drink and a friendly smile by the 2 maids, Muay and Mohn. The villa was spotless and the amenities were great! The pool was lovely and clean (and maintained every day). We had a few meals cooked for us and they were amazing! Nothing was too much trouble for these girls who were always up early in the morning to set about cleaning and cooking our breakfasts. Noi,the housekeeper, was always available on what’s app when we needed anything and helped us to arrange food, shopping, taxis and tickets etc. Brian’s communication before we arrived was also excellent and answered any questions we had promptly and was very helpful. can’t recommend this villa highly enough and will be recommending it to our friends and will definitely stay there again. Thank you to the whole team for a very memorable holiday and wonderful experience

We'll be back to see you in the future
We had a great stay in your villa. Khun Noi was taking care of us, she is an exceptional person. We will leave a five star review. We'll be back to see you in the future. Thanks for everything.

Thank you so much for making our vacation a dream
Nous avons passés un moment magnifique et magique en Thaïlande. Le pays est magnifique les gens sont accueillants gentils souriants....
Votre villa est splendide, bien agencée. Le personnel est juste extraordinaire. Elles sont gentilles, dévouées, serviables, souriantes. Elles ont été extraordinaires avec mon fils.
Bref, il n y a rien à redire tout est parfait, continuez ainsi.
Merci mille fois d avoir fait de nos vacances, un rêve.
Hello, We had a wonderful and magical time in Thailand. The country is beautiful people are welcoming smiling kind .... Your villa is splendid, well arranged. The staff is just amazing. They are kind, dedicated, helpful, smiling. They were amazing with my son. In short, there is nothing to complain about everything is perfect, continue well. Thank you so much for making our vacation a dream.

You'll never want to stay at a hotel or resort again!
My stay at Villa Melee was my first after two prior stays in Villa Jasmine. Once again, everything was outstanding. The accommodations, food, transportation, service and activities available nearby were top notch. The owner, manager (Noi) and their entire staff are focused on making sure your trip is a great one. Highlights of this trip included the following: Service and cooking by the staff were again excellent. The house and pool are kept spotless. We enjoyed breakfasts each morning cooked as we requested with eggs, crispy bacon, fruit, toast and coffee. For dinners, we enjoyed spectacular home cooked Thai dishes. The refrigerator was kept well stocked with beverages of our choice - wine, beer, water, vodka, etc...whatever we asked for, the staff obtained and only charged us cost. Masseuses arranged to visit the home were skilled and cost less than $20 USD equivalent. Golf at Red Mountain, Loch Palm and Laguna was enjoyable - each unique. Red Mountain is one of my favorite courses in the world to play. The location of the villa is perfect to be in a central location and have access to activities both on the west and east sides of Phuket - and be near beautiful Kata beach. The area includes a variety of great restaurants to sample in addition to enjoying meals in. A strong and consistent high speed wifi signal can be obtained throughout the entire villa - made keeping up with work easy. When staying at the villa, you don't have to worry about anything. The staff will go out of their way to do whatever is needed to make sure your trip is enjoyable and exceeds your expectations. After staying in Villa Malee or Villa Jasmine, you'll never want to stay at a hotel or resort again!

Never have we been looked after so well
Thank you for a wonderful holiday in you beautiful Villa Jasmine! Everything was in place for our comfort. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. It is beautifully appointed and the pool was perfect. Never have we been looked after so well, by lovely people from Nuch and Noi, Noi and Kao the tailors, and both of you. Thank you for playing with us at Red Mountain (breathtaking course and immaculate) and Phuket Country Club, again lovely in its own way. We had a pretty good trip home, just long. Arrived on time and were on our way to the Gold Coast for the 2019 Masters by 1.30pm. Feeling a bit weary, but will soon bounce back. I have been talking the villas and Phuket up today and one lady has already asked for your contact details. Good thinking giving me the cards. I will continue to do so through the week. All the best to you both and if you ever feel like a complete culture shock, we would love to have you at our place
Trish Harris, South Australia
The food cooked by the staff is delicious and fresh
Brian’s place is in a perfect location, close to whatever you need, but far enough away to be peaceful. All the rooms are large and have excellent bathrooms. The whole house is spotlessly clean. The food cooked by the staff is delicious and fresh, and are happy to accommodate kids’ quirks. Communication with the manager about services (eg in house pedicure, extra bread, day trips) is helpful and valued. If you are prepared to pay a bit extra and have a wonderfully relaxing trip, stay at Villa Malee. The ladies in the house, Muay and Mon are absolute delights. Kind, sweet, and anticipated our needs amazingly. I hope you pay them well!!
Trish Harris, Daw Park, Australia
Best Airbnb yet!
My husband and I and our two teenage children stayed at Villa Malee and wished it was our house! Great accommodation, amenities, location, staff..
The relaxing atmosphere of this beautifully contained villa is only enhanced by the amazing service of Noi and her team. I have to admit that I am a friend of the owner but that does not take away the fact that this is a great place with great staff and an amazing attention to detail. Highly recommended!
Mark Norris, Singapore
Amazing service, fantastic location, welcoming stay
A beautiful house to spend a long weekend while diving in Phuket. Great service as soon as we arrive and nothing short of perfect food. Everything was prepared and ready with the staff welcoming.
Meg Coleman, Australia
It was just brilliant, you won’t regret choosing to stay here
From booking via email with the owner Brian through to our first meeting with Noi the villa manager, Muay and Mon our beautiful villa cooks and cleaners, we were super impressed. We were a group of six adults/three couples on our first holiday without kids. It was heaven! The vast in house dining menu was impressive but more impressive was the freshness, quality and value for money of the food. Breakfast everyday was delicious. The staff are beautiful, were like ninjas, ensuring every need was met with zero fuss. One person in our group was quite unwell at one point and Noi offered 24 hr contact and support for any local information and advice. She was hilarious and joyous, loves her job and offered us such a warm welcome. We had cold drinks and beers on arrival after an overnight flight, which was so well received by all of us. The pool was spotless, every detail was thought of, right down to secretly topping up our supplies or arranging our belongings in neat order without us even seeing them. I can not recommend this place enough. We actually stayed in the other villa as well for our last two nights, Villa Jasmine. This offered the same high quality with beautiful views. If you are thinking of staying somewhere with great food, great facilities and a welcome feel in Kata Beach then spoil yourselves and book either of these villas. Kata Beach is a lot quieter than the hussle and mayhem of Patong Beach. The villas are located on a hill so if you are wanting to walk into the town area with bars/shops and restaurants you can but it’s a steep walk. Take comfy shoes. Karon is just ten minutes down the road by taxi or tuk tuk, great spot, lots of life without the full mayhem of Patong. In terms of accommodation, it can be hard to please six different adults, however, Villa Malee and Villa Jasmine managed to please all of us well beyond our expectations. It was just brilliant, you won’t regret choosing to stay here. Value for money was outstanding and nothing is too much trouble. We loved everything it offered. We will miss you lovely people. Hope Noi recovers well from her operation and we wish Brian every success. Thank you, it was just beautiful and so incredibly easy.
Megan Bird, Australia
The food was insanely good
We will all be more than happy to leave five star reviews. We were so impressed with the villas and with the beautiful staff you have. Noi in particular was incredibly helpful and adorable. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Muay and Mon were brilliant, and the food was insanely good. No restaurant could match the quality and freshness of their amazing cooking.
Ahmed Alkurdi, Bahrain
A good villa that I think suits families very well
The location of the Villa is very good, being close to the main Phuket beaches and within easy access of Phuket town and other beaches. The villa is very safe and secure. There are two maids that lives in the house is their own room and you will only see them in the morning when preparing breakfast and once in the evening checking that the kitchen is clean and everything is sorted in the living area. The house is not modern in style but very classic and super clean unlike many other villas I stayed in which looked all nice and fancy but lacked in cleaning. We had one meal cooked in the villa and in terms of quality it was top notch and price was decent. The Villa is stocked with beverages and extra cold beers and snacks, all being sold as per market price. I believe they are provided for guests' convenience rather than for profit. All in all it was a good villa that I think suits families very well due to the excellent sleeping configuration and en suite toilets.
Malcolm Hall - Dubai
The meals were better than anything you can get in the local restaurants
My family of 7 had an amazing two week holiday staying at Villa Malee. The staff will go that extra mile for you and the meals were better than anything you can get in the local restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here. I also have to say your girls were amazing and really looked after us.
Rohan Parekh, Mumbai, India
I had a lovely time in your villa. Thank you very much.
Alessandra and Jeremy - Bahrain
We are sure that visit number 7 is on the cards
As always a lovely time was had in Villa Jasmine. The fact that its was our 6th visit in 10 years I hope conveys to you and your team that you are doing something right. We’ve visited as a small family group, with extended family and have shared with friends; each time the house has suited us perfectly and it is really now for us a 'home away from home'. Villa Jasmine continues to provide comfortable luxury, excellent service and as always the most delicious food! We are sure that visit number 7 is on the cards.
Camille Huggins - California, USA
The staff and location were great.
This home actually exceeded my expectations. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable, and our needs were met. Thank you so much. The staff and location were great. Thanks for everything!

Had a great time staying here with my family. The staff did a great job !! Very easy as Brian provided detailed information and answered all questions! Staff was excellent at villa and arranged for everything we requested.

哈哈，我又回来了，强烈推荐这个别墅，我们去别的地方住了几天觉得不好，退订后回来这里的。 对于孩子们来说，这里做的饭非常好吃，干净实惠，吃好就有精神玩。泳池干净，房间干净，根本不需要自己带床单 对于大人来说，更好了，管家和佣人都非常热情，美食品尝的太爽了，尤其要吃蔬菜春卷和蒸螃蟹，而且，每天的早点丰盛，吃的很舒服，到中午都不会饿，水果随时都可以吃。 我们住这里得四天，只有晚上去海滩看晚霞，其他时间都在别墅游泳，打牌，喝茶，煮咖啡 也要推荐别墅帮忙约得Anm瑜伽老师，水平很高，我们练得很舒服，老师人非常好 感谢这次美好的体验，下次要跟家人在来休闲一次

Thank you for making my first trip to Thailand a memorable one
From the moment we arrived the staff made us all feel so welcome. The Villa was well set up and gave us everything we needed from a well appointed room to the beautiful meals. There was no way we were not going to have a great holiday. Nothing was any trouble. The language barrier was no issue with the staff. A hidden 'Gem' and as we had a larger group we had next door Villa Jasmine as well. Certainly great for a larger group ( 15 adults) to be together in private. Thank you for making my first trip to Thailand a memorable one. Special people, Great memories.
Peter & Helen, Wagga Wagga, Australia
The rooms were of excellent standard and very well appointed
We recently stayed at Jasmine Private Villa. I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting wonderful accommodation in Phuket. The facilities were outstanding. The staff were of excellent standard, supplying us with the best meals, pampering us with their kindness and most co operative with anything we asked. Nothing was a trouble to them. The villa was so relaxing. The rooms were of excellent standard and very well appointed. I recommend this villa to anyone wishing to secure accommodation in Phuket. Thank you Brian for all your hospitality throughout the holiday.
Chris & Marie, NSW, Australia
The accommodation & amenities were 5 star quality.
Myself & Marie would like thank you for your hospitality during our recent stay in Villa Jasmine. Your staff were amazing, nothing was to much trouble from getting laundry done, trips to super market for refreshments, trips to the different golf courses and island tours. The meals that your staff prepared for us were first class, (loved the prawn & pineapple curry). Please pass on our gratitude to all your staff.
Susan Vo. Menifee, California, USA
The food that was prepared in the home was better than any restaurant we visited
I had an amazing experience with your staff, and your home was absolutely beautiful. The food that was prepared in the home was better than any restaurant we visited. I really appreciate them being patient with us. Truly amazing staff. Thank you for having us and trusting us to be in your home. I will submit my review as soon as I can!
Hannah, Bangkok, Thailand
Villa is amazing and it is made even better by your wonderful staff
This is the second time I have stayed in this villa and it lived up to expectations again. This villa is a dream. It is spotlessly clean. The pool is beautiful. There is a lovely roof terrace which you can see the sunset from. The bedrooms all have en suites and are beautifully presented. It’s in a very quiet area but still near to amenities in Kata and Karon. The thing that makes this villa stand out is the service that you get from Brian, the owner and his wonderful staff - Khun Noi, Khun Muay and Khun Phat. They take care of your every need, made us lovely breakfasts and helped us to organise so many things. No job was too much for them. If I go back to Phuket I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. Thank you to Brian and his team for an amazing stay.
Saar, Kolkata, India
The staff and the manager were extremely accommodating
Thanks for the amazing golf and the great villa. Really enjoyed your company. Please say thank you to your staff they were awesome. The staff and the manager were extremely accommodating. We had a family of 10 and they listened to everyone and accommodated all of them. The food is one of the best in Phuket and they prepared veggie items for us as well on a regular basis. Would recommend this Villa to any family from 7--10 people See you in Phuket for my next trip
Brian Kilpatrick, Australia
First class vacation. This was our second stay!
I would like to thank you and your staff for providing us with a first class vacation on the 14th march 2019 2 weeks. As you know we were a group of 8 golfers and we took both villas so everyone had their own bedroom. The maids and chef were sensational , the place was well catered for with plenty of refreshments available every day. We were treated like we were at home, clean house everyday. The swimming area was great plenty of fresh towels pool cleaned every day. Comfortable beds, nice linen. The girls were polite and very friendly a smile every morning fantastic. This was our second stay, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Complements to you and your wonderful staff.
Peter Richardson, Australia
Your staff were excellent
I had a great stay at Villa Malee in March 2019 and your staff were excellent. The villa itself was very spacious with each bedroom generous in size with full en-suite. The view overlooking the pool(which was always very clean) gave sweeping views to the beach and we enjoyed seeing beach fireworks each night. The availability of staff to cook breakfast or simply a coffee during the day was excellent. Definitely use Villa Malee next time when in Phuket
Reagan Reigate, Canada
Very clean home and perfect location
Brian’s home and hospitality was exceptional. What really made the whole experience amazing was the staff that took care of us. The meals are a must! We wish we ate every meal at the villa! Very clean home and perfect location just conveniently away from the crowds but quick to get everywhere you will want to go. Don’t look any further than this villa to stay at when visiting Phuket!
Lea Bouges and all the family, France
Dream stay. Séjour de rêve.
Dream stay. We had a wonderful stay in Villa Jasmine. Noi and the staff lavishes attention to make our stay unforgettable, and we thank them all for that. They all were unobtrusive, helpful and efficient. Bravo to the cook, food was delicious. Brian provided us with all the information we needed and carefully followed all our requests . The staff can not do enough for you, and we thank them warmly. We highly recommend this fully staffed villa , especially for a family holiday. What happiness! A big thanks to all of you. We hope that one time we can come back.
Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour. La villa correspondait exactement à nos attentes. Brian nous a fourni toutes les explications dont nous avons eu besoin et suit avec attention les demandes de ses clients. Le personnel que nous remercions chaleureusement est aux petits soins. C'est une formule et une villa que nous recommandons vivement surtout pour un séjour en famille. Que du bonheur ! Un grand merci à vous tous. Nous espérons qu'une chose pouvoir revenir
Everything was great
We have returned back home, but definitely not forgotten our Thai holiday We had a great time, and have no complaints – Everything was great; we liked the villa, staff and the food.

We had an awesome 5D4N stay!
Thank you so much to Brian for all your fast responses and to Khun Noi and all the Villa Jasmine’s staff who made our stay a very memorable one! Good Job! Keep it up! :)
We really enjoyed our stay
Villa Malee was awesome and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff made it extra special for us.
Remarkable property and service beyond compare
We have travelled to Thailand many times and generally stayed at hotels as a couple. On this trip we brought our 4 x teenage children along for the journey and lodged at Malee villa for 7 nights. From the first night we arrived we were treated like family and the premises felt just like home. The accommodation is remarkable with extensive bedrooms and bathrooms, large upstairs living area, well-appointed kitchen and relaxing lounge. The pool and outdoor living area is the jewel in the crown where we could soak up the sun or relax with a quiet beverage. It is a very safe villa and the views from the 3rd floor balcony were spectacular. The live in staff prepared the most amazing traditional Thai meals or others as required. I must say the food was divine with a large variety that rivalled the best restaurants in town. The staff also helped manage tour bookings, taxis, arranged our drinks catered for other activities we required whilst abroad. This team have won the best villa, private pool, chef and breakfasts for a reason. They are quite simply the best and we will unreservedly return with our extended family to experience the wonderful experience that Brian, Khun Noi and their team have provided.
Everything is great!
We have spent a wonderful time in Villa Jasmine. The villa is clean and quiet, a good place for family holiday. The maid is professional and helpful. Everything is great ! We love the swimming pool and the delicious meals in villa. We will come back to stay in Villa Jasmine again.
Joe Stearns, Taipei
Relaxing retreat perfect for a family holiday
Everything was exceptional. Truly one of the most relaxing vacations we have had together as a family. Truly one of the most relaxing vacations we have had together as a family. The weather cooperated perfectly, and the Villa offered enough space for each to do their own thing when desired. The property was beautiful and comfortable, but the best part was the attentive staff, the daily meals prepared for us, and the little things like calling for a taxi or massage, and being flexible to our schedule, which formed daily with almost no up front planning. Very impressed with the cooking, and the chefs taking our orders in the morning, then shopping during the day for the freshest ingredients, and having the meals prepared for us when we arrived from activities throughout the area. We saved considerable money and avoided stress by not having to worry about restaurant reservations and coordinating our group's logistics. Not sure when we will be back to Thailand, as we have much more exploring to do in Asia while I am posted in Taipei. We have used many VRBO apartments and homes in the past, but having the chefs and staff available during our stay is something we will look for in future family retreats. Thanks for opening your home for families like ours. Happy to provide a 5 star review!
R. Simpson, Spain
Khun Noi couldn't have been more helpful
The villa was ample. very well furnished and exceptionally clean. The food was better than many restaurants - we hardly went out to eat they were such good cooks and amenable to every suggestion we made for the menus. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Also Khun Noi couldn't have been more helpful, arranging taxis and trips and with local knowledge. The rooftop 'eyrie' (Sala) was great for after dinner drinks watching the sunset and as we were there over New Year - a great view of all the fireworks and lanterns. A car would be an asset as transport is needed to go almost everywhere. ( 7 seater self drive 4x 4 available at 50 US dollars per day) - 12 seater luxury minibus and driver available for 110 US Dollars per day - taxis and tuk tuks available for shorter journeys.
Kandice Pedley, USA
This place has everything you need on a family vacation (or a vacation with friends). The staff is great as well as the food! We could watch the sunset from the pool every night after a day at the beach or touring. It was so nice to explore during the day and know that we would be coming home to a great meal and relaxing pool (as well as an amazing staff!) This is an amazing value for what you receive. the staff is so wonderful, not to mention great chefs and friendly. They arranged for us to have massages, manicures and pedicures in the privacy of the home. They also arranged for private transportation around the island to see the sites. I hope we can come back again soon!!
Great stay with excellent value, highly recommend. Staff is top notch.
Phil Walsh, Arizona, USA
A terrific choice
Staying at Villa Jasmine for a family Thanksgiving getaway was a terrific choice. After staying in Bangkok for a few days we flew down to Phuket and were picked up by Brian’s driver. It’s always reassuring when what is promised is delivered, and there he was as we walked out from the airport. A comfortable ride of an hour or so to the villa which is up on a hill overlooking the ocean about a mile and a half away. Great greeting from the staff and Khun Noi the manager who settled us in. Bedrooms are spacious, clean and beautifully appointed, a/c works well and upstairs the living room and dining room are spacious. What made the trip was the incredible staff and military organization. The food was above restaurant quality, we had lobster and steamed fish instead of turkey, but everything was fresh and delicious. Menus and information about the villa are clear and comprehensive. Noi gave us her What’s App contact info and anything we wanted was provided in 30 minutes or less. Food items, taxis, Tuk-Tuks, booking a catamaran etc. anything we wanted. Kata Beach is lovely and quiet (unlike Spring Break Patong) and Kata Noi is almost better and these are both within a mile or too. All in all a fabulous trip two thumbs up and thanks to Brian and his team.
No hesitation in recommending Villa Jasmine
We stayed at Villa Jasmine for 12 nights in October 2018 with our 3 adult children and their partners. It is difficult to think how our stay could have been better. All the bedrooms were large and with en suit bathrooms. They were cleaned perfectly everyday. The lounge and sitting area was great and the kitchen large and well equipped. The pool and outdoor sitting area had fantastic views down to Kata Beach and to the Big Buddha in the other direction. Undoubtedly the staff made our holiday. The manager Noi was available on whatsapp to help with restaurants and taxis at any time of day. She checked regularly to make sure everything was going well. The maids, Nuch and Pat are fantastic cooks. Breakfast was served at the time of our choosing. For the price of the ingredients they cooked the best Thai food we have ever eaten. You can choose from an extensive menu and they will prepare lunch or dinner. It was amazing every time. European style food is also available. Mhoo, the other member of staff, kept the pool area spotless and shopped for a fresh supply of beers and drinks everyday. Transport for 8 people to beaches or restaurants was always easily arranged by the staff. We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Jasmine to anyone.
We will definitely be back!
If you’re looking for an amazing family getaway, look no further. The home was perfect for our family. It was so nice to have the exceptional staff there to help in every way....cooking, cleaning, rides, ideas on what to do...truly amazing! We will definitely be back! We all thank you for an amazing time in your beautiful home. The staff were attentive and kind. The food was amazing.
非常棒的别墅和非常好的员工， 别墅维持的非常好，到处都很干净，床单，毛巾和浴巾都是一股香甜的柚子味道，Mon和Muay做的饭也相当好吃，还特别大份，我们7大2小，点3-4个菜就已经吃的很饱了，经理Noi特别好沟通，人也很热情，叫车和安排按摩都有求必应，负责接送的司机Paul开车特别稳，人也很礼貌，一出机场就看见接机的牌子，特别有安全感。希望下次有机会再来。 The villa is very superb ,and the two ladies named Muay and Mon are very friendly and always ready to help , both them are very good chef, offer very good taste food with fresh ingredient， the pool is cleaned everyday by Mhoo , kids like the pool and the Jacuzzi very much , all rooms have their own bathroom, everyone gest the privacy , in the living room and the top sala our family enjoy happy togetherness. Noi is a very efficient Manager， arrange everything for us in a short time, and Brian , the owner , keep in touch with us before and after we book , give us many useful information about our holiday. many thanks to everyone from Villa Malee to give us an enjoyable holiday. Highly recommended.
Your wonderful staff just amazed us
Villa Malee, what a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Kata beach without being in the hassle and bustle . * pickup from airport✔️ straight out the front and away. * arrival at villa ✔️ so welcoming. * Villa so clean , comfortable beds , all rooms with ensuite ✔️. * Villa staff cannot speak highly enough of the ladies ✔️. * Dinner cooked by staff, some of the best we've eaten. So fresh . Better than any restaurant we ate at✔️. * Breakfast every morning catered for all ✔️ * Transport at front door or staff happy to organise and not expensive ✔️ * Hassle free massage available at villa ✔️ Cannot recommend Marlee highly enough.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Malee. We asked about you, but Khun Noi said you were away. Your staff were excellent. Khun Noi had everything taken care of and Mon, Muay and Mhoo made our stay comfortable. The food cooked for us were all excellent. After the first dinner there, we asked for more for the next night. We got lucky with the weather. We heard from Khun Noi that it had been raining a lot. The sunset from the pool area were stunning. I'll try and upload some photos with my review on Airbnb.
Khun Noi and her team went beyond anything we expected
We stayed at Villa Malee for 10 days as a group of 8 in August 2018 and can honestly say that there was nothing about the stay that was disappointing. The place is very well presented, kept immaculately clean and in a good high location that gets breezes above Kata Beach. Khun Noi and her team went beyond anything we expected - food was magnificent and they responded quickly to all of our needs, taking the time to make sure we were happy with everything. What I liked in particular was there was nothing available in Phuket that they couldn't organise and everybody they linked us up with provided good service. Also, when it came to the end of the stay and paying the bill for food and drink it was definitely not loaded with margin. I challenge anybody to eat and drink to such a high standard in Phuket for less than it cost us.
Super great and hospitable
Just want to drop you a note of thank you for everything. We enjoyed ourselves and Khun Noi and team were super great and hospitable.
This is the best holiday experience I have ever had.
I have stayed at both Villa Jasmine and Villa Malee in recent years (currently July 2018). Both villas are simply lovely - tastefully and comfortably furnished to an extremely high standard with excellent house keeping services from the live in staff. The pool is sparklingly clean and there are super views down to Kata beach, particularly at sunset. A delicious breakfast is included, all cooked to order and there is a wide choice - I particularly LOVE the platters of fresh fruit all served Thai style with lovely decoration. The staff will do all your grocery shopping and each evening will cook a Thai or western meal of your choice for the cost price of the ingredients..... this is simply the best Thai food I have ever tasted - better than any five star hotel or restaurant! I would return again and again for the food alone. The manager, khun Noi, speaks excellent English and is available by phone 24/7.
The food & hospitality were amazing
We had a lovely stay at Villa Malee over the past 2 weeks. 4 x adults and 4 x kids aged 14, 9, 7 & 6. Everything went very smoothly. We loved the villa, the pool, the entertaining areas and best of all, the food & hospitality were amazing. Can't recommend highly enough. We will be back one day too. Huge thanks to you, Noi, Mon & Muay for our lovely stay.
An amazing 3 night stay!
The only times I crossed the gates were upon entry on the first day, and exit the last. We were spoilt rotten by Brian's team our entire stay. The food was absolutely exquisite! We will be back, Brian! It was an absolutely fabulous short break, Brian! I managed to completely de-stress, the kids had a ball of a time in the pool, and not having to worry about food (which was exquisite) just made the holiday that much more perfect! Your staff are so lovely, they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy!

If I could give 6 stars to Brian, his staff, and his villa I would
Very accurate in description and communication with Brian and Noi at all times was a breeze. Brian was very helpful with helping us plan different events, which can be difficult while in a different country. His staff was incredibly hospitable (yes, the cooking is probably some of the best we had while abroad) which only made the villa feel more luxurious than it already is. The location was excellent to relax at due to its proximity to the quieter Kata beach, however if you are looking for more of a party scene it is about a 30 minute ride to Patong beach. I would definitely recommend to a family or friend! Thank you so much for all of your flexibility, advice, and incredible staff hospitality. We all enjoyed our stay as maximally as possible and your stay was a main reason why!
The highlight of the trip
Thank you so much for your email. We had an amazing time at your home! Your house was the highlight of the trip to my children. Your staff was very responsive and extremely professional. I will write review upon my return back to Japan. Thank you again!
All of your staff was 10/10
Villa Malee absolutely lived up to our expectations, we loved every single minute.
I'll make sure to jump on Trip Advisor and give you guys a great review. There was no areas within the villa that could have been improved, your customer service from all of your staff was 10/10 (especially Muay who was our live in maid while we were visiting).
The entire team, especially Muay, was helpful, attentive and kind. We didn't have a single communication issue and every one of us loved our interactions with all of your staff. I've been to Thailand a few times, but for most of the group, this was their first overseas experience and it definitely left a great impression.
The service was so good, to the point that I'd be up early in the morning and make a cup of tea, I'd put the spoon in the sink and before I could blink it was somehow magically cleaned and put away. The esky was stocked for us every single day, the beers were cold, the pool was always clean and and water was always available.
Breakfast, every single day, was incredible. We always had enough food, and it was always bang on time. Both the dinners we had the girls prepare in the villa was some of the best Thai food we have ever tasted. (Also your menus are awesome and have HEAPS of options, the hardest part of our trip was deciding what we were going to eat!) Muay and Mon were respectful, always available, calling us taxis and helping organise our activities. I can't fault either of them, and when we return we would love them to take care of us again!
Our towels and bathrooms were refreshed every day, I honestly don't even know when they did it, they didn't interrupt our activities once. It was like everything was silently and magically cleaned without us noticing.
The villa manager, Noi, checked in on us a couple of times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We could text her on whats app at any hour of the day and she handled all our queries very quickly and always got us a great result (and great prices) on tours, spa treatments and massages.
We couldn't have asked for, or dreamt of, a better customer service, the entire team needs a big pat on the back, they were absolutely wonderful and we are already talking about dates to return to the villa next year.Thank you very much for having us, we will be back!
An unforgettable time
Seven people stayed and spent an unforgettable time. The most impressive thing was that the house was spotless, and eating and swimming were very convenient for the seafood we bought from the outside and returned for free processing. The next time we went to Phuket, we would stay again. In this, about three years.

You have taken holidaying in Villa's to a new level
Just a quick note to say what a wonderful time we had in Villa Jasmine.
Kuhn Noi, Nuch and Pat could not have done any more to make our holiday better. Their willingness to help, was noted in many ways.
Charlie our 3 year old, still talks about Kuhn Pat. The memory of the evening she changed his nappy and gave him a wash will last for many years. Also when he got sick and had a temperature, while we were eating she gave him a light massage.
Kuhn Nuch, every day the food was presented as in a fine restaurant and tasted as good if not better. I had to do some work over the three weeks and needed some documents printing, Kuhn Noi was like having a personal assistant on hand.
Our 6 year old, Archie, just wanted to stay in that wonderful pool all day. He had bundles of fun.
In summary, I feel you have taken holidaying in Villa's to a new level. 6 stars.
Of course we know that money can buy most things, but you have managed to deliver the above at an exceptionally competitive rate.
Well done to you for delivering a quality product.
A wonderful holiday staying in Villa Malee
Our family ( 2 adults and 2 kids) just had a wonderful holiday staying in Villa Malee. The villa owner Brian, and his staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Home cooked Thai food was much better than what's out there in restaurants. We will definitely trying to book same place when we go back to Phuket next time.
Everything is perfect
Thank you very much ！Although the time is short, everything is perfect, especially the dinner is very delicious.

would visit again with no second thought
The customer service was awesome, would visit again with no second thought, love everything & everybody, did above the call of duty with respect and love!
Great place to relax in Kata
The villa is located in a quiet area of Kata, up the hill and about 5 mins drive from Kata beach. The villa is 2 story, with all bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs (all with air-conditioning), and the main living area upstairs, with another bathroom and the outdoor alfresco area. The living area opens up to the pool which has a lovely view of the mountain all the way to the beach. The pool has a lovely position for watching the sunset each night. The villa is of a very high standard of cleanliness, and contains all the ammenities you need for a lovely home away from home. Breakfast was included with the stay. Breakfast was eggs (multiple ways), bacon, sausages, mixed fruits, yoghurt, cereal and a selection of bread/pastries. Each day you could request anything in particular you would like for breakfast the following day. We also had the option of having the chef cook for us for other meals. We took up this option on 2 evenings after returning from day tours. The meals were by far the best of the entire holiday. All the ingredients were fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs and requests for the entire stay. And although they were on the premises the entire time, it never felt as though they were intruding on our privacy. I definitely recommend Villa Jasmine for a group of family or friends wanting a private, secure and well appointed place to stay whilst visiting Phuket.

Everything was impeccable
This villa is exceptional to accommodate a family. Everything was impeccable. The food was delicious. (Strongly recommended). The follow-up of our requests and the reception were out of the ordinary. We felt 'especially pampered'.
Cette villa est exceptionnelle pour recevoir une famille. Tout était impeccable. La cuisine était délicieuse. (Fort recommandée). Les suivis de nos demandes et l’accueil furent hors du commun. Nous nous sommes sentis ‘’attendus’’

The pool and the views were stunning
After several days of trekking all over Thailand, Brian's house and staff were a little piece of heaven. We arrived in Phuket exhausted from an early morning flight from Chiang Mai and were greeted at the airport by a driver who brought us to the house where we enjoyed a full breakfast and massages arranged by Noy, the amazing concierge. She also helped us arrange transportation to Freedom Beach and to the airport and ferry when the 8 of us went our separate ways a few days later. The pool and the views were stunning, and the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back.

Villa Malee is just amazing
Wau. Just wau !!! Villa Malee is just amazing. We stayed 7 people in the villa (5 adults and 2 children) for 13 nights and it was super. Very nice house in a quiet location. Lovely big pool and cozy terrase. Nice and clean everywhere. Good wifi both inside and out. And then there's the staff, they are a story for themselves. Very very nice and sweet girls (Mon and Muay). They did everything to satisfy us and made delicious breakfast every day and amazing thai food 10 out of our 13 nights, it tasted absolutely wonderful and we miss both them and the food totally wild. We must not forget the manager Noi, which is a big piece of life in herself. She was available 24 hours a day and responded promptly when writing to her. She was helpful with anything whether it was ordering massage, arranging a taxi or medical assistance, as we unfortunately needed it. It was as if she could do everything - nothing to small or to big. She is amazing and we miss her and her good mood very much. We must also remember Paul, the villa's driver. We booked him one day for sightseeing, it was absolutely perfect. Always helpful, happy and very punctual. Only little bit of minus is that the villa is a little bit far from down the city/beach, off a road that's a bit difficult walking on and you have to cross a very busy road, but it's a trifle compared to all the positive and we would love to come back to Villa Malee.
The concierge is also very attentive, providing advice and services anytime
The vacation experience was really great! Our big family came to Phuket for a total of eight people including my 80-year-old grandmother. This vacation took care of us in every possible way. The rooms are cleaned every day! I write this review in Chinese, I hope to provide more suggestions for the people. This villa is perfect for a family holiday, and the infinity pool is also ideal for taking photos. My sister and I very much enjoyed the two maids in the villa. They are very cute, very intimate, and super delicious to cook! Although it is not right next to the beach, it can be reached by car in 5 minutes. If you walk, you are a little far away. . As a resort, the villa is very quiet and very suitable for rest! The concierge, Khun Noi is also very attentive, providing advice and services anytime, anywhere. In short, it is highly recommended that you go to Phuket to choose Villa Malee!

The bedrooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent
Villa Jasmine was a better holiday home than expected, located in the mountains, not too far from the beach. Very conducive to the comfort of the holiday experience. Butler team and service team are very good. The owner is communicative and helpful. The villa is very comfortable. My kids loved the pool very much. The bedrooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent.

A very good experience
Villa Jasmine is a four-bedroom villa on the mountainside with the swimming pool and sunbathing area on the upper floor. Perfect for kids and sunsets. The chef's cooking is superb. With her experience she suggests popular Thai dishes we should try Fried chicken wings, Tom Yum Gung soup, fried pineapple rice, fried mushrooms, fried vegetables ... In short, everything is very tasty. It is better to use a car or tuk tuk for travel. The Concierge will arrange vehicles for you, local trips by tuk tuk are very cheap, and taxis for longer journeys not expensive. A very good experience, we hope to have the opportunity to go again.

Villa Jasmine was fantastic
Villa Jasmine was fantastic and staff always ready to serve (without a charge). Cooking was FANTASTIC - the best we have found in Thailand. And we love Thai food. ..Great ”European” cooking also for kids :-)! The villa is a great hideaway from busy Kata/Karon but still close with taxis that the staff are always ready to order. If you want to stay in the villa but still need shopping done, the staff is willing to do this too, again without a charge. Rooms where cleaned everyday with flower decoration & ”towel art”. When you go to this area of Thailand. Try this place! It was wonderful and your staff FANTASTIC. Amazing cooking too!

The crystal clear pool and rooftop sala are excellent...
We were a party of 6 visiting for a wedding at Kata Noi and had a fantastic time at Villa Malee for the week we stayed. Prior to our stay, Brian was quick to respond and provide helpful advice to the many queries I had about Phuket or the villa. Once we arrived at the villa, it was made to feel like our second home. Our villa manager, Noi, and her team provided the most attentive hospitality you could ever need. Noi's english is superb, which made organising things like taxis and grocery shopping a breeze. The meals prepared by Mon and Muay, two of the helpful staff at the villa, were hands down the best we had in Phuket, if not the whole of Thailand! The crystal clear pool and rooftop sala are excellent spots to hang out during the day/night and enjoy a drink with friends. All rooms are spacious with big comfy beds, while the living room and kitchen are very well equipped. We will definitely stay again when we visit Phuket next.
Wish our stay was longer!
What can I say, Villa Malee is perfect! The kids love it and even before the holiday is over, they talked about returning to the Villa. The pool is very good size with float and jacuzzi. Nothing to fault about the villa which is very well kept. Host Brian popped over to say 'Hi' and he was prompt with his response even before our trip. Khun Noi the villa manager made us feel so welcome and she is very efficient, arranging our massages, nail painting. Both Brian and Noi gave us piece of mind by assuring us that they can be contactable at all times and indeed they were. The maids are very good cook and prepared such delicious home-cooked and fresh food, I must say that they are restaurant standards! Any regrets booking with Brian at Villa Malee? Yes, we have, wish our stay was longer. Brian, we certainly had a Great Time in your immaculately kept villa!

Hard to tell what could be improved
We would like to thank you for the excellent stay at Villa Malee and extend our warmest thanks to Noi and her whole team at the villa. All our expectations for the stay were met and exceeded, and it is hard to tell what could be improved based on our experience. We hope to return to Villa Malee at some point in the future.
We update the reviews here every few months.
