Front desk service was so so. Sent us letter on last night to remind us to check out and say we can request for late check... More

Whoever had the dream of building this hotel, just wow, I bow down to you, I don't think I will ever stay in a hotel that is so unique and enchanting ever again, it's a mixture of Arabian nights, jungle book and Kahlessi palace off Game of Thrones. The villas themselves are huge, with a lounge area, Jacuzzi, downstairs toilet... More

The hotel is approximately one hour from the airport. They served cold drinks when we checked in. It took ten minutes and we were in our room. That's the advantage of checking in a small resort hotel. The room was great. It's very comfortable and well-maintained. The location of the hotel was excellent for us. Many restaurants choices within walking... More

This really is a beautiful place! The grounds are lush and feel secluded. The villas comprise of 2 large floors; a seating and pool area downstairs, with the bedroom located upstairs.

Where do I begin? We were greeted by our driver at HKT immediately upon exiting the airport. Given that we had just been in transit for 32 hours this was extremely important to us. The Baray Villa is about 40 minutes from the airport. We couldn't really enjoy the scenic drive as we arrived well after dark. Check-in was speedy... More
