My partner & i decided to go with Villa 3, when booking our honeymoon in Thailand. We arrived late at night, and found the transport/service to the hotel to be well managed and courteous. As soon as we got there, we were provided with fresh drinks, food, wet towels - amazing service.
Upon arrival, we were blown away by the villas features - large infinity pool, incredible views with close proximity to beach/jet ski hire/thai food etc. The photos do not do justice - you have to see it to believe it, the villa is extremely beautiful.
The view from Villa 3 is unbelievable, with 180 degree views of the sea; we enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets while relaxing in the pool certain afternoons& again the service also matches the views - 5 stars. The team went out of their way to provide us with whatever we desired - thai take-away delivered certain nights, drinks, snacks - whatever it was, it was never too much hassle for them to help us. You are provided with a mobile phone and can contact your dedicated villa manager, to also assist with tour recommendations, relaxation retreats, local fine dining & restaurant suggestions and more. It was really great having the support of the team navigate all the different options on the island.
The Intercontinental Hotel is also just around the corner, so would recommend having a few cocktails one night, at Sky Bar - it was insanely gorgeous at sunset - unforgettable experience.
We look forward to going back again one day, and taking our kids for the ride. Memorable experience and highly recommended.
As I try to stay warm on a cold damp winters day, I can't help but think about my wonderful trip last summer to Villa 3.
We went for a girls weekend and it could not have been more perfect.
Highlights include, but by no means limited to:
- Super easy airport pick up
- Villa 3's gorgeous setting, view is picture book material.
- The abundance of greenery and flowers, including Bougainvillea and Jasmine- two of my favorites.
- The Villa is light and airy, with beautiful furnishings. Everything is clean and the bedding is so comfortable.
- The morning Yoga classes by the our pool, arranged for us, with fabulous instructors who ensured we started the day off right. Not to mention the lovely masseuses who also came to the Villa.
- The in-house chef, who prepared fresh, healthy meals for us.
This place is special. It has all the 5 star comforts without that "package" feeling of a hotel resort. We were able to relax and unwind at our own pace, in our own style.
We stayed at Headland villlas Jan '16 and loved it so much we returned the following year with my parents. As we were a larger group we booked villa no 3 with the larger pool and extra loft beds for the kids.
Trust me, Headland Villas did not disappoint. The service on arrive was fabulous. We were early (8am) and the previous family were just checking out. The villa staff made sure we were comfortable while they quickly cleaned etc. We were sitting by our private pool by 10am, refreshed, bags unpacked etc. Wonderful service.
Poor Saumi had unbelievable non seasonal rain during our visit, but it didn't matter. The villas are so open and spacious we all had plenty of room. Villa Manager Lek made sure we had everything we needed (including fast wifi for the kids), and our housekeeper always making sure we were dry/feed etc. Because of the rain we really took advantage of the in-house chef. You can design your own menu and have it prepared in your own kitchen, it was surprisingly reasonably priced and great food. The staff also worked very hard on keeping the grounds/pool clean, tough job in such poor weather.
Even checkout was a pleasure. Once again a late afternoon flight, as our villa was needed for new arrivals, we were given the use on another villa to spend the day, relax, swim and shower. This is the sort of personal service your really appreciated when travelling, nothing worse then an late check in or early check out, which involves lots of waiting around.
We did get 3 days of sun out of our 10 and only as Headland villas and Saumi can do, you just forget all about the rain and enjoy this delightful island, wonderful sunsets and great accommodation.
We will be back again, thats for sure.
Our stay at Villa 3 was perfect in every way, and we were blown away by the experience.
Villa 3 has the largest pool in the property, and the pool is perfect for travelers with young children, because it possesses a large shallow area for them to play in (something the other pools do not). The view from Villa 3 is extraordinary, with 180 degree view of the sea; we enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset while relaxing in the pool every evening.
The staff and service were top notch (even better than many 5-star resorts we have stayed at before). They were professional, but also give a very personal experience just like the villa itself, as they went out of their way to provide us with everything we wanted (whether it be drinks, snacks, dining options, souvenirs, transportation, etc.). The staff were incredibly friendly, and even spent time playing with our 3 year old daughter from time to time. In terms of food options, we would definitely recommend having a chef cook lunch and dinner: not only is it extremely delicious (especially the Thai seafood), but it is also great value when compared to your usual resort restaurant. And allowing us to stay camped in our beautiful, spacious villa all day long is an additional perk to say the least!
The Headland property itself is gorgeous and all 5 of its villas (as well as The View) are unique in its own way: some are more of a "jungle" or private variety, while others are more spacious and open, so there is something for everyone. Although it isn't large by any means, it is a pleasure to walk along the path leading to the beach, and the property possesses a very private feel to it despite being situated next to the Intercontinental resort.
All in all, The Headland Villa 3 was a perfect experience, and we definitely look forward to going again.
We booked this Villa for our daughter & son-in-law’s honeymoon (Cassie & Chad). Dean Cooper was very helpful and ensured everything went to plan – thank you! The property didn’t disappoint – Cassie & Chad were blown away. The Villa staff went out of their way to provide awesome service, which was much appreciated.
