So this time two years ago we went to Krabi, Thailand with the whole family for the Easter break. My sister was getting married out there, so we decided to kill two birds with one stone.
Looking for a family Villa?
Well thats what we did instead of a hotel, as it was more convenient for us. We found this beautiful luxury Villa called ‘Villa Saifon‘ in Aonang Krabi.
The view from the villa was absolutely breathtaking, it was hidden away in this peaceful place. It truly is a hidden gem.
The owner Fon was so accommodating, if there was anything we needed we just had to ask her. The Villa came with a chauffeur driven mini van, which was very useful to say the least. We would be driven to and back from restaurants, bars, beaches, shops etc.
Fon was also our chef, from the menu provided we chose our meals. We mainly asked her to cook our dinners. It was much more convenient after a long day of sightseeing with three exhausted kids who did not want to go out to eat.My husband and I could just sit back and relax as Fon and her team whipped up a delicious meal for us!
The boys could not get enough of the pool, with the weather being so beautiful they sure did make the most of it. We did not have to worry about finding a sun lounger or sharing the pool with other travellers.
We could use it at any time at our leisure. The cleaners would come every morning to clean the pool as well as housekeeping and laundry.
If you wanted to go sight seeing, this can be organised too. There are a range of package tours in the brochure at the villa. We did a combo Rainforest tour which included the Hot springs, Emerald pool, The Tiger Cave Temple and Elephant Trekking.
If you do decide to climb the approx 1260 steps to the Tiger Cave Temple be sure to take plenty of water. I’m not kidding when I say the steps are very steep so be very careful when climbing up and down. We got to 250 steps and wanted to turn around and go back down. However, the boys were so excited that they wanted to carry on, and boy did they!!!!! mind you at the time they were 8, 6 and 5, yes! my 5 year old climbed up approx 1260 steps.
The panoramic views from up top is spectacular and worth the climb. The boys did not think so as they were expecting some type of trophy or reward after climbing all those steps. We did buy them some treats once we got down. They were all so proud of themselves, as were we.
If you are not interested in climbing the Tiger Temple Cave in the hot weather, then there are plenty of Temple buildings at ground level.
The view from up top!!!!
A day of Island Hopping, includes visiting three island via a speedboat. You get about an hour on each island to explore or do as you please. After visiting the first two island you get some time to snorkel and go swimming in the sea.
Afterwards you are taken to the final island to eat and explore. Our time was spent on the beach with the boys playing football and building sand castles.We had such an amazing time, and my sisters wedding was just so stunning. The boys loved the whole experience so much, they want to go back again.
Until next time, safe travels everyone!
