About Adele Hetherington

It took 2 years of painstaking planning and construction of the villa - our passion is to create a well made high end villa and we definitely succeeded. WE ARE VERY PROUD of the upkeep at the villa and the special touches that make this a perfect break.

Adele Hetherington purchased this villa in 2009

Why Adele Hetherington chose Rawai

We loved the quiet headland yet it was convenient to get onto the two beaches and the village. The four staff who wear a loose informal Asian inspired uniform will care for your everyneed - they wear no shoes so quietly glide around the villa - you get plenty of privacy and they do all the work

What makes this villa unique

Peace and serenity with moments to all the action.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Adele, I just wanted to thank you for what was truly the most magical weekend we have enjoyed in a very long time. Baan Saleah was simply wonderful. From the moment we stepped into the door and were greeted by frozen hand towels and chilled freshly squeezed watermelon juice, till they delivered us to the airport late last night, the whole experience was magical. Kun Noi and her team are amazing and my god, despite having lived in Bangkok, I would go so far as to say the food we ate was amongst the best meals I've ever eaten. I just wanted to bottle that woman up and have her come home to cook for me daily.

There were 8 adults in total no children so we just enjoyed ourselves to the full, food, wine, swimming, relaxing and daily massages by the pool.

It was a weekend I think we will all remember for a long time to come, so thank you thank you.

take care,



p.s. the bathroom was a highlight for me and I'm still dreaming of the smell of the organic liquid soap - it was great you offered such large bottles and big soap.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The house is built around the natural landscape to catch a beautiful view of waves crashing over the rocks below. Two beaches within a 5 minute walk. Kata is a nice smaller easy going coastal village with enough on offer to keep you interested. The staff are great, nothing is too much trouble, we ate all our meals at the villa, very good quality Thai cooking. Overall a wonderful experience

Incredible seafront villa hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We were recommended Bliss Villas by a friend and cannot stress how wonderful the experience was. Right from the start the correspondence with Adele was easy and informative, to our arrival at the incredible property and throughout our entire stay.

The staff were wonderful and the cooks served up the most delicious Thai food I've even eaten. It's almost not worth eating out, though the local restaurants are equally great. Perfectly maintained and thought out, it was immaculately clean and simply walking through the property was a delight.

The location is second to none and the house perfectly compliments the beautiful Andaman seaward views. With a luxurious infinity edge pool stretching out and full complimentary bar, we never wanted to leave.

Absolutely amazing - best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot begin to describe this amazing villa and it's equally amazing staff. From the moment we were picked up by Paul from the airport we were treated like royalty. The food was amazing and there was so much variety. We ended up letting Ging choose for us and everything we had was delicious!! Best Thai food I have ever had.

We went with family and a friend for my 40th and it truly was the most amazing holiday experience. Noi, Noi, Ging and Heen made sure we had everything and anything we needed. They spoilt our two little boys rotten (1 1/2 and 4 years old) making them special meals and entertaining them.

My birthday cake that Noi organized was beautiful.

We are going to go back next year for my sisters birthday and then hopefully every year after that, just because it is the best and Noi, Noi, Ging and Heen are wonderful!

Baan Saleah - 'heaven on earth'

  • 5 of 5

This villa was absolutely superb, we were lucky enough to be able to stay here for 2.5 weeks and by the end of our stay we didn't want to leave. I wouldn't really consider this place as just a luxury villa it's more like a luxury home conplimented by a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the rocks and also ocean that lies between Kata Noi and Kata beaches the sunrise and sunset were spectacular to watch with such amazing views. Noi was superb she arranged 100% of everything we needed. She offered impeccable advise that tourist rely on which helped us all alot. Inclusive in the stay are live in staff members that work very closely with Noi, that became more like part of our family especially Ging she taught us the basics in Thai and we also taught her some basics in English. We weren't used to such amazing services and hospitality from the food catering, organizing of day trips, transfers, massages overlooking the beautiful views, daily housekeeping, laundry services the staff were willing to go above and beyond to ensure our stay was more then what we expected we truly felt spoilt and are not use to such catering. The pictures of the property are superb but it's nothing compared to when you are there in person it's truly a remarkable place. We are planning to stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone traveling in a group or by yourself. The locals in Kata are beautiful people, with so much culture to offer. We tried a couple of the restaurants nearby Leonardo Davinci offering authentic Italian, Mom Tri Kitchen which offered local and western dishes these places were delicious we also tried a few different local restaurants down in Kata shops which are cheaper then the two restaurants I mentioned and all the food was perfect the services were excellent and only a 1-5 minute walk from Baan Saleah. We ate at these places mainly for lunch as we were out during the day most of the time exploring. Breakfast and dinner was a must provided by the Baan Saleah, as they provided a chef to do all the cooking of dishes that are preferred and picked by us the villa offered western and local foods with also the service to provide anything else that we desired. We had access to two different beaches Kata Noi and Kata that were within walking distance that offered fun activities, like para-sailing, banana boats, jet skis and much more the waters were so warm and clear. Overall highly recommended, we can't wait to return to such a beautiful place.

Beautiful villa and perfect Phuket location….

  • 5 of 5

We had a grand time at Baan Saleah. It was the perfect fit for our group! All of the bedrooms were so nice and the fact that they basically were all of the same quality set Baan Saleah apart from other villas where all bedrooms aren't always created equal. The house was so relaxing, peaceful and beautiful. It actually showed better in person than in the photos online. We loved it. The staff were terrific and looked after our every need. Khun Noi and Khun Ging were fabulous. We couldn't have chosen a better spot to enjoy ourselves. We had made bookings at the fabulous Baray Spa which was just a few minutes away at Sawasadee Village, Mom Tri's kitchen was literally right next door where we had made our birthday dinner reservations and we rented a sailboat which left out of Chalong so it was only a short drive away. Everything was perfect. The Thai food at Baan Saleah was delicious and we even had the staff make hamburgers and fries on the last day which were yummy too. Our only regret was that we weren't able to stay for 2 weeks!!

Best Place to Stay in Phuket

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't imagine or actually build and create such an amazing place to stay if I tried. Instantly felt at home and comfortable, some of the best thai food cooked in house meant it was a waist of time eating anywhere else. Me and My spouse had a wonderful relaxing time with our 6 children with them all fitting in easily. Not once have we experienced such a relaxing family holiday.
