Kaleane Villas, located in the quiet of Krabi creates the ultimate, peaceful getaway. Built on stilts within a lake and also at the beach front this is the perfect location for all people!
The villa we had the pleasure of staying in was named Issara (one of the Kaleane villas) and it was architecturally fascinating! Issara is built on stilts within a lake filled with beautiful lily pads and ravenous fish. Through winding mangroves you can see The Andaman Sea as the villa is built on the beach front too. Within the Andaman Sea there is a direct view of various different Islands which are simply picture perfect. We were lucky to have one incredible sunset during our stay and with the mangroves, the ocean, islands and this stunning sunset you could imagine just how breath-taking the view was.
Issara sleeps up to 8 people and contains four bedrooms each with their own bathroom, a kitchen with drinking water (rare), a living area, an outdoor dining area, a stunning spacious pool with spa and a large grass area. The styling of the villa was modern and also included a Thai twist, particularly in the kitchen/living area. The walls in this huge room were a stunning yellow colour which made the room pop plus the inclusion of wood within the detailing reinforced that you were in fact in Thailand. An amazing attribute of Kaleane Villas was the peacefulness you felt due to the isolated location. You could lay on a sunbed by the pool with the warm sun on your face, listening to the breeze within the trees and the waves rolling to shore.
Kaleane Villas contrast from accommodation in Aonang, and whilst there is not much distance in between them (this is good for island hopping) all the loudness and chaos is removed. A basket with brochures and flyers regarding trips to various islands was available and the staff were more than happy to help organise these too! Each morning we woke to a beautifully prepared breakfast within our villas kitchen prepared by staff. We were served eggs, pancakes, orange juice – all of the good stuff! For any other meals we headed to the restaurant just across the road or an alternative was to walk down the road to the local village where they had ingredients for you to cook your own meals.
As you are amongst nature you come across the usual creatures such as geckos which you see everywhere within Thailand – just something to be mindful of. Kaleane was a wonderful tropical getaway and was the perfect space to relax within. The location of Issara was peaceful and away from the loud of Aonang not to mention, it was lovely to be surrounded by both a lake and the sea – something we had never seen before!
