We, 4 total, booked packages flight (Bangkok Airways) & room (original was Ibis) thru Zuji.com travel agent (but had the worst service when dealing with the people at the Zuji office, NEVER EVER AGAIN TO USE THEM. I made one character spelling error during booking, they charged me $110 US dollar penalty for the amendment, but did nothing to amend my ticket after taking my money, I ended up stood at the airport for an hour & 15 min to take care of the matter myself with a great help from the Bangkok Airways clerk. I swear and am taking a legal action to demand my money back from Zuji.com ). Anyway I got only one room for 2, so I must find another hotel close to Ibis on Bophut, we ended up with the Peace Resort, and turned out it was a great choice- a room included buffet breakfast. A typical breakfast nothing fancy but a lot of choices, also you can have the egg cook to your liking: omelet, egg white or sunny sided up, boiled...the staff are very friendly (had read plenty reviews from other travelers talking about unfriendly employees at other resorts, well, you won’t find that here :) The restaurant setting was most appeal to me more than the food itself, if u can get a table along the beach side. The resort lobby decor is fine but the path heading to your room is gorgeous, the garden is so tranquil, the birds and flowers! Our room is a bungalow style and surrounded with tropical vegetation, that truly takes your soul away from the busy city! The room is decorated in the Thai style and with a pyramid roof ceiling and glass sink set on top of a tree trunk vanity, very unique (see some candid pictures uploaded to the site), but the faucet filter did fall out from the tap. I recalled reading reviews from other travelers talked about the air con vent directly pointed right at your head; so I used the bottle opener provided in the room (a perfect tool, really) to turn the vent toward the side of the wall, so the air will bounce back into the room, without blowing right at you. As for the loud noise from the air con, well, just be thankful that we got air con. One thing can be improved is the swage smell in the bathroom right after shower; but the smell seemed to go away after 2 days. I am sure if I were to request for a room change, there should not be a problem since the resort is not full anyway. The pool got lot of chairs and were available (during early March) and saw big huge pillows laid around the beach for hotel guests (no other resorts providing this feature for guests, nice touch. I had walked down toward the northwest side of the end of Bophut beach). Unfortunately, the new gym was not opened yet while our staying, it looks very nice though from the outside. Anyway, as most travelers wish that wifi should be free for guest. Ibis does and I did walk to Ibis to use their wifi since my other family members stayed there. Would I stay at Peace Resort hotel again, YES! you can beat the location, walk to F.V about 15 min or less depending on which entrance to the village. you can cut through any hotel down to the beach.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on Bophut beach in the northeast of the island, the Peace Resort is a newly refurbished, friendly bungalow style resort, ideal for a relaxing family getaway. The style is best described as contemporary Thai with the architecture following local traditions, but a transformation in 2008 has given a more up-scale look and feel while the prices have remained very reasonable. The resort is well laid out in small buildings, ensuring a more intimate, human scale, while the grounds are tranquil and green, with a restaurant that spills out onto the beach. ... more less
