We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Rouge where we had a much anticipated Christmas rendez-vous with our UK relatives and I have to say my expectations were surpassed on every level. We are 2 families both with young children (ages 1-7)and after initial anxieties about the fenceless swimming pool and deciding who would sleep where I'm pleased to say we survived the pool and had a truly wonderful holiday, thanks especially to gorgeous Sano who looked after us so well and was the perfect host with plenty of wonderful advice not to mention yummy food!

A couple of helpful points about the villa... it is in a wonderful part of Phuket, Bang Tao beach was a pleasant surprise for this Aussie girl with uncrowded clean sand and not-too-hot water, but note it is a short drive from the villa to the beach and we decided upon arrival to hire an additional rental car so we could get around easily. It was also handy to have the cars so we could explore up and down the coast a bit. We had some good meals out at many of the Thai restaurants on the beach but as mentioned by others on these pages the best Thai food was to be had in the villa cooked fresh by Sano according to our requests. For a change we did enjoy cocktails, pizza and pasta at Catch club in Surin. The villa is well equipped for babies and small children (apart from the pool!!) and even has a baby seat for the car. Note that the 4th bedroom is quite a long way from the other rooms with the pool in between so more suitable for older children or couples. We also enjoyed a morning at the Laguna Beach Resort with it;s huge pools with slide and baby elephant wandering around and the kids also had a day in the kids club there.. babysitting also easily arranged with Sano as an extra.

All in all our stay was better than I had thought possible and I would recommend it highly as the perfect place to relax with friends or family, we certainly hope to return in the coming years.

We spent 2 weeks at la villa rouge over Christmas and new year, with our family, all are adults. The villa itself was amazing the pictures on the website don't even do it justice, the pool and garden area is huge! We were looked after by a lady named Porn, and she was fantastic, and very sweet, we were very sad to leave her, her breakfast omlette was delicious. The villa is very private and extremely quiet, once you close the villa doors you're in your own little oasis. It was a 15 to 20min walk to bang tao beach so we enjoyed our morning walks, though on very hot days Porn would organize a tuk tuk for us (when we asked her to.)

Although it's not on the beach, there are some fantastic restaurants a short (5 min) walk from the villa in the town, and it was also easy to walk or tuk tuk to Bang tao beach at night to go to the restaurants on the beach. There is a free laguna shuttle which takes you part of the way to the beach if you want to use it.

And we had a chef called Puk come and cook christmas dinner for us in the villa, and it was great!

The rooms were all a good size, the twin room was a tad smaller but it didn't make any difference to us really...

We would go back in a heartbeat!

We have just returned from a week at Villa Rouge. We are a family of 4, and our friends came with us with their 3 children. The children's ages ranged between 4 and 7 years. It was perfect. 4 bedrooms, all with on-suite and 3 with a bath.

The villa was beautiful, it catered for all our needs and of course Sano (the maid) was fantastic. We were really spoilt, with breakfast made for us and lunch on the days we were there. We also had dinner cooked by the chef that is available and a bbq one night too.
The villa was clean and our laundry taken care of if we required it.

The villa is situated in the Laguna Resort area, so very easy to venture out to the beach or restaurants in the area. The beach isn't on your doorstep but once you walk out you can "hop" on one of the many Laguna shuttle buses to save little ones legs.

We went on an Elephant trek and chartered a boat one day, both of which were organized by Sano for us. Sano also organized a driver when we went out to dinner a couple of times and she looked after the children for us. (Babysitting is an additional fee, but very reasonable and the kids loved Sano).

The pool isn't fenced, but this wasn't an issue for our families.
The villa is set out very well, it has internet access, wireless available, tv and DVD player and a docking station for your ipod with outdoor speakers as well.
The kitchen has a microwave, dishwasher etc and everything you really need, but it was so nice not to have to worry about cooking and cleaning!

We all had a fabulous time, very relaxing, beautiful villa and we are hoping to return again next year!

What better way to spend a reunion with friends and the making of new freindships than talking a group to Villa Rouge. Styly surrounding and wonderful serivce made this a top holiday.

Everything was arranged with ease .... whether connecting at a local level for a market meal or to going to Relais & Chateaux's 360 deg bar. The rooms were beautiful & this was a super restful holiday. Villas are set in the Sai-Taan gardens a stones throw from the Laguna Resort area.

Certainly beats being in Patong if you want to be more serene. Oh and pedicures or massages arranged everyday at the villa if you wanted to be lush. It was all super reasonable even for a few of us on the Kiwi dollar. Thank you so much Villa Rouge! Art work was gorgeous too.
