This place is more than the pictures and description! My wife and I wanted to get away and detach for a while and this villa was our slice of heaven. We were so pleased with the privacy and luxury! Luk and Ian are AMAZING hosts and dare I say, new friends!
Luk, Ian and their staff attended to our every need, even accommodating our late arrival and arranging for a late dinner after hours. They arranged for all of our needs to be met, from taxi rides to town and the beach, to boat ride excursions to in villa massages!
We woke up every morning and took a dip in our own private pool, while breakfast was being prepared and brought to us!! We couldn't have asked for anything more.
We are so pleased to have chosen this villa for our holiday and HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who doesn't want to pay for expensive, crowded, impersonal hotels! Do an internet search and contact them (save a couple of bucks)!!! You will not be disappointed!
The villa is amazing the perfect place to relax. After a lovely breakfast we enjoyed a 20 minute walk down to Long Beach every morning which is gorgeous. After lunch taxi back to villa with snacks and ice cream from 7 eleven to laze around the pool. Most evenings we spent in the villa ordering food in, which was delicious. Luk, Ann, Joke and a taxi were on speed dial on the mobile phone provided for our use for anything we needed. Highly recommend this villa.
Luk and her husband Ian were the perfect hosts. We felt very welcome! The pool villa is a 10 minute car ride from the beach and a 5 minute car ride to the main street where you will find various restaurants. The villa has everything we needed to make our stay most comfortable. Two bedrooms with two separate bathrooms. The living, dining room and kitchen were in an open space. Great for entertaining. The air conditioning was excellent. There are various seating areas outside on the patio by the infinity pool. Even an outdoor barbeque with we didn't have the chance to use.
This was the first time that we booked and paid directly through TripAdvisor. This also worked well.
Unfortunately we had a car accident during our stay. We are so grateful to Luk as she helped us out in organising everything with the car rental company and the police. She was our saving grace. We can't wait to go back!
We just love this place. Stayed here for two weeks last year and a month this year, seriously thinking about moving in !! The infinity pool is just wonderful with the best views. The icing on the cake is the great breakfasts that are delivered to your villa at the time you choose by the lovely staff. What a great way to start the day. Needless to say we have booked again for next year. Guaranteed that if you stay here once you will want to return. Thank you Ian,Luk,Ann and Joe.
Love this place!
Our first stay was in late 2014 and the villas were as good as new. Ian and Luk keep the villas in mint condition and we were surpriced to find that the villas still looked brand new 3 years later!
Luk and Ian can arrange for transport from the airport and any trips you might want to go on.
The staff are super helpfull and friendly.
I could not recommend the villas and staff more!
Go see for yourself - I promise you won’t regnet it!
We can’t wait for our next stay!
Beautiful villa with an amazing infinity pool. The views from the villa are equally gorgeous; Sunsets in the evening and star gazing at night from the pool.
The service was extremely good. Ian organised an airport pick up and drop off between Krabi and Koh Lanta. Luk took us around the villa and explained everything thoroughly. They provided a phone with Luk’s and Ian’s phone numbers, including a number for a taxi. Bau (taxi driver) was always available whenever we needed a ride to the town (around a 5 to 10 minute drive from the villa). The two ladies who work for Luk and Ian were also lovely. The villa was spotless!!
We organised a private long tail boat through Ian and it was the best decision ever!
Overall it was one of the best experiences we’ve had. A wonderful stay! Kulraya is a little hidden gem!
The villa certainley made an impression when we arrived it was simply beautiful with high spec interior throughout and the most amazing far reaching views down to the sea. As the villa sits facing west the sunsets were a sight to behold. The beautiful infinity pool allows you to gaze across the stunning landscape and really feel you are in paradise !
Luck & Ian are the Villa owners and whilst we met Ian a few times most of our dealings whilst staying were with Luk and she cannot do enough to make you stay a comfortable one. Throughout the stay at the villa you have the use of a pre loaded mobile phone in which you can call Luk or Ian when you are travelling around or to simply request or enquire about something.
The villa is set away up towards the jungle and sits very much on the edge of it so it may feel remote but you are really no distance from the local village and beaches or the busier town of Ban Saladan.
Ian & Luk have also come to an arrangement with a local Tuk Tuk driver, Mr Bow to be a sort of taxi service and his number is stored in the phone so you can call him pretty much any time to take you down to the beach or to the local restaurants or around the Island. Mr Bow is a lovely man, always happy to help and very reliable. You may be able to source a cheaper ride but we felt Mr Bow deserved our 'loyalty' and we therefore used him for our entire stay at Kulraya.
The women who daily bring your breakfast up to the villa and clean the villa are also very lovely people. The villa was cleaned to a very high standard and we daily had clean pool and bathroom towels. Also, if you ask for clean beach towels, again this is no problem at all.
We would love to think we will one day return to Kulraya asit really is a beautiful villa in an amazing setting, we have no hesitation to recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed.
