The Villa Habibi project began in mid-2015 when I took over an 11-room rambling 1960s tropical Thai-style villa near Silom on Sathorn Soi 1. I had always loved this neighborhood and stayed here whenever in Bangkok because of its real-Thailand-urban-village-feel. It has been lovingly restored and transformed into quiet, cozy, green studio apartments with a large common area. Surrounded by mango and jackfruit trees and with a small herb garden it is a small urban oasis of quiet and privacy. Having been a tenant myself in Bangkok before, I knew what expats wanted, whether for a short or long-term stay - kitchens, fast internet, good management and no tricks with deposits and hidden charges. Voila Villa Habibi... Our guests love us, so try to book ahead when possible.
I have lived in Bangkok for over 13 years. My partner Peter takes care of things when I am on the road with my other work as a concert pianist cultural diplomat in over 140 countries. We have a friendly and helpful management style while giving you all the privacy and freedom you need. I look forward to welcoming you to Bangkok and to Villa Habibi, our little oasis of peace and quiet in the heart of the Big Mango.
