Malisa Villa Suites Hotel

Private pool villas with a good beach location, at quite a low price

With 41 private pool villas, the Malisa Villa Suites Hotel had been one of the more luxurious and reliable resorts along Kata Beach, and a recent renovation brought its former glory back. In the 5-star category this resort delivers a lot more than you’d expect at these rates.

Each of the 41 villas is large and comes with a Jacuzzi tub in addition to a private pool. Features such as lending of iPads and laptops upon request are unusual in this price category. Because, in part, of its distance from the airport and its on-site spa, romantic couples will find this resort a perfect choice.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Malisa Villa Suites Hotel are more positive than negative, especially in the past few years. Back in 2012, the resort underwent a pretty big renovation, which included updating the rooms.

Nowadays, the rooms receive plenty of great praise, along with the rest of the resort. Most cite that the resort is a good choice if you’re looking for a private getaway where you can spend most of your time relaxing in a lounge chair next to your very own personal pool. The only main concern that seems to be reviewed quite often are the mosquitoes that call the vegetation around and within the resort home. Luckily, you can buy bug spray nearby, which should help quite a bit.
