About Michelle Bibby

I am originally from the UK and living in Perth Australia. I have a business selling pearls and handmade pearl jewellery (Australian South Sea Pearls).

Michelle Bibby purchased this villa in 2006

Why Michelle Bibby chose Choeng Thale

I love the Residence, which is like home to me. The area is quite and relatively unspoilt - everything is available except for the noisy night life of Patong (half an hour away). The gardens are beautifully manicured and Bangtau Beach is one of the best beaches on the island.

What makes this villa unique

I enjoy having my own private pool and the seclusion of my own garden and upper terrace with the lovely mountain outlook.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa 216 at The Residence was pretty much all it promised to be. The staff were friendly and the surroundings were attractive and the environment peaceful. It was not difficult to find a reliable taxi driver who picked up up from the villa and took us out and about. There were plenty of good restaurants around and the night markets were a great place to pick up bargains. The local beach is lovely and there is a great golf course at the Laguna just down the road. Would recommend for a couple or family.

The Villa is fully equipped with both bath and beach towels. There is an iron and ironing board, washer and dryer. The Villa is within the Residence Resort and Spa and privately managed by my on site staff. The Resort has a Gym Spa and restaurant which you can use and you will need to pay the resort directly for these facilities. The resort will accept credit card. There is a small cover charge each time you visit the gym. The restaurant provides a good buffet breakfast daily which is reasonably priced. The spa is one of the best in Phuket and the prices reflect this. However there are plenty of alternative choices nearby to suit all budgets.

Amazing villa, staff and resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this villa. Albeit a little remote, we managed to secure ourselves a personal taxi driver and tuk tuk man from the resort main desk. We just text him when we wanted to picked up/dropped off and he was always on time. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His name was Ad and is available via the Residence reception. A tuk tuk to Catch beach club/Bang Tao Beach was 200 baht so very reasonable. It wasn't far but in April heat too far to walk with a 5 year old. All the staff were amazing, from the cleaners through to reception.

Bang Tao is still very undiscovered but is up and coming. There are plenty of western restaurants which are popping up all over the place. We can highly recommend Cut and Palm Seaside (stunning sunsets). We regularly visited Catch for drinks at sunset (great cocktails). Mr E at the end of Bang Tao supplies a long boat over to Rock Island where you can snorkel - amazing colourful fish to see and for 2000 baht for 2 hours on a private trip with a small child 5 years old it was a good price.

We mostly spent out days around the villa pool as it was so relaxing and comfortable. We had everything we needed with a well equipped kitchen and air con/fans in the villa. We used the bbq but found the terrace a bit too hot in April to sit out. After trying out Tesco Lotus we realised there was a more western supermarket available on Boat Avenue called Villa Market (go here don't waste your time at Tesco Lotus).

The treatments at the Residence are top notch. Probably the best we have ever experienced. Bang Tao beach water wasn't as clear as we hoped but overall the beach was clean, sunbeds are available and its a nice walk to Xana Beach club where we spent a few days including Thai New Year (Songkran) - what fun we had with the water guns and such friendly staff - children are allowed in the pool which can't be said for most of the beach clubs. This was fantastic for us as our little boy was in the water more time than he was out of it! Food at Xana is also very good.

We also visited the water park which was excellent to cool down and not too far to travel (30 mins by car).

Overall a very enjoyable stay in Thailand and we would recommend this villa highly.

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The villa, the staff and everything associated with the check in and check out was amazing. The villa was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. The villa staff were superb and attended to our needs immediately. The area is safe and secure with 24 hour guards on hand. There's a small shopping centre within walking distance but we took a taxi to The Laguna Boat Villa Market where they cater very much for tourists at the supermarket. Overall, we could not have asked for more and are very happy with our choice of this villa.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

I can highly recommend this condo specifically and the Bangtao Beach area in general.

The Villa and pool are as presented in the photographs. It is well-maintained, clean, new furnishings, new and updated bathrooms and kitchen. The unit and pool area are quite private.

Michelle and her staff were all quite responsive and very helpful.

Great place!

Loved it, will definately use again!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely amazing, perfect place for a romantic weekend away. It was lovely to have the privacy of your own villa, where we could cook a meal in and use our own swimming pool. The location was also good, close to the beaches and nice restaurants. There are nice views from the upstairs bedroom and the ensuite bathroom was lovely with a huge bath! Would definitely come back again.

Fabulous Villa with Private Pool

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous Villa with private pool & excellent service! I was picked up from the airport by friendly helpful staff and enjoyed a comfortable drive to Villa 216 which was luxurious and welcoming. No fussy check-in, just bags brought in and everything I needed was there and easily accessible. The Villa itself was stunning with a beautiful private pool and garden. I loved the Master Bedroom with en-suite and huge carved stone bath. The housekeepng staff were great (nothing too much trouble). Loads of amenities in the area, great restaurants, night market and good coffee shops and close to the beach. The Residence is in a secure, beautifully landscaped and tranquil setting with gym, great restaurant and one of the best spas I have ever seen. I will definitely come back!

Phuket is often described as the Pearl of the Andaman. It is a spectacular tropical island nestled in the Andaman Sea. With many fine, unspoiled beaches, it is a paradise. Bang Tao beach is probably the island's finest. Located on the famed West Coast of Phuket, between the Amanpuri Hotel and the Banyan Tree Laguna, Bang Tao boasts an array of restaurants including local, international and fine dining, with many at the water's edge.

On the doorstep of the Laguna Phuket Golf course, a short drive from Phuket Marina and only 25 minutes from Patong with its bustling night life. Bang Tao offers the best of Phuket with fun and friendly local markets and shops selling antiques and Thai crafts. The famous Jim Thompson silk has its factory outlet store at the Laguna village!
