We travelled with a team of 14 and all of us had a thoroughly pleasant experience. The Villa came complete with 2 maids as well – both of them were very friendly, and they cook really well too. On the last day, we had a complimentary late check-out and that really was the icing on the cake. Villa Maria may not be the nearest to Patong or the other touristy areas (save for Nai Harn Beach), but that’s a blessing because it provides for peace and tranquility. If you’re traveling in a group and are looking for a Villa that’s calm, relaxing and spacious – everything you’d want in a perfect holiday – then Villa Maria is it.
