Stayed here based on other reviews and left after 1 night. So many better places actually situated on the beach with better quality rooms and food. Every hotel I have been to in Thailand has friendly owners and employees. This was more of the same service. There is nothing special or remarkable about this hotel that makes it stand out.... More

We chose the Shambhala as it was small, located on the beach and was well priced. We stayed in a room facing the beach and overlooking the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. The rooms were basic but comfortable. The pool was small but adequate. Shambhala is not close to the Main Street where... More

Lots of ants in the room gathering around food bits on the room floor, so not a good cleaning of the room. Super small,pool. No beach in front of hotel. Just a cement wall. Wifi poor... More

We stayed in this resort over Christmas 2015. At first it was very quiet but then got a lot busier over the Christmas holidays. The family went out of their way to make this a very special stay. It should be clear that this is not a swanky hotel, so if that's what you're after don't go here. What this... More

Very quite, nice big rooms, wonderful trees and plants all around, helpful staff. Thank you to the lovely lady that brought us a fantastic breakfast right in our room as we had to leave very early in... More

This resort is a family run business. It is a laid back place. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The beach is just at your door step. If you like traditional spicy Thaifood you have to let them know,otherwise the cooking is tailored for westerners . I also like they cook the included breakfast for you to order... More

This is a decent little resort. The staff are all very friendly, and welcoming. We did have trouble finding it in our rental car. We typed the resort name into google maps, and then spent about an hour driving into the mountains, and another hour back tracking. If you have a GPS, the Lat and Long is N 008 degrees,... More
