As soon as we drove into Silk Pavilions we couldn't help but feel like we stepped off the treadmill,starting from the warm and friendly greeting to the spectacular scenery. We found ourselves relaxing immediately and our stay in the Thai Villa was extremely comfortable, excellent facilities and Sue and John's service impeccable. Then there was the food-adjectives like delicious,delectable,superb only...

Three times I've stayed and the fourth will be mandatory. Sue and John need to share their talent and associated skills with the hospitality industry. I cannot find a fault in their manner and regime. The welcoming sincerity shines through and during one's stay, they are always gracious and caring. The venue offers three different styles of accommodation and each...

Thanks John and Sue for a sumptuous gourmet dinner served under the stars and sharing your beautiful eco-paradise with us. Our Daughter gave us a voucher for a night in the Thai Pavillion for our 40th wedding anniversary, a perfect gift and a perfect night. Glorious !

Spent two nights in the Thai Pavilion. Sue and John were very friendly and accommodating hosts. The Thai pavilion is close to the main house but still maintains a lot of privacy , even the outdoor bath . I highly recommend the Host's dinner on one of your nights and the hot breakfast option is delicious too. Would love to...

Thanks for the kind words, we do appreciate travellers spending there valuable time with us and try to make it as pleasant as possible. We recently spent a few months away and have gathered some amazing new food ideas from Indonesia and some spices from Jordan and the middle east. Would love to share them with you at some future...

Having not visited the Silk pavilions before the drive to the area and map directions are fantastic. On this occasion we took the glamping option and on arrival was met by the host who were very friendly and welcoming. All luggage was taken down to your room with good instruction provided. The glamping tent and amenities were clean and tidy....

Thanks for taking the time to review Silk Pavilions. Sue and I were away for a few months visiting our grand kids (very cute, and we have pictures). We put the business in hibernation, now we are back and have just completed a detailed rejuvenation. Would love to have you back. I see you loved the host dinner well now...

Sue and John are a lovely couple and hosts that looked after us during our stay. We enjoyed a beautiful and very delicious 3 course meal with fantastic views. Glamping at its best with Nature and electric blankets for winter and the gorgeous winter sun during the day. A well deserved rest for us both thank you to our beautiful...

We have just come back to reality after a very relaxing time had in the Thai Pavilion. Unfortunately, the owners, Sue and John were not there, but nevertheless we felt truly cared for.

Thankfully I never got to stay. I was given a voucher to this venue; when I rang up to use the gentleman that took the call could not have been less helpful or more rude. I then get an email 2 months after booking saying they could not fulfil my booking as they had sold the business. As someone else...

Unfortunately there was a miscommunication it seems which came at a very busy period for us. Your request to cancel your voucher was done promptly and without question. We have so many people who have sung Johns praises below and what a wonderful host that he was, it was only a matter of time that someone would disagree. I suppose....

Not much to do but just relax and escape from busy life, exactly what my husband and I needed. We paid for a eco camping tent ( no bathtub ), and the tent was amazing! Loved the antique chandelier which Sue and my husband connected over. The bed was to die for with the electric blanket which i never experienced...
