7 of our greater family including two young kids stay at Villa Arawan for 5 days at beginning of July. The Villa was spacious and the pool deck was relaxing with nice view of Adaman sea. The best part was Khun Cheer, the Chef, who made us delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We asked for our favourite thai dishes, seafood, etc. they were done well and we enjoyed eating out in the villa without the hasel of going out and kids can play around us as they want. - Roger C., , SingaporeRoger - July 2013
