Everything about our stay at this resort was wonderful and for a honeymoon it was just perfect. The words Happy Honeymoon were spelt out with petals on our bed and there were also petals in the bath. There was also a complimentary bottle of wine and a cake. What a fantastic start to our honeymoon.
You get the feeling of peace and tranquility as soon as you enter the reception which is very tastefully decorated in Thai style with relaxing subdued lighting. The tropical gardens are amazing and immaculately maintained. There is a lily pond with water fountains surrounded by palm trees and beautiful flowers wherever you look.
The pool and L'Ocean restaurant overlook the beach and it's a perfect setting for breakfast. The choice for breakfast is very extensive and a great start with the days just getting better. The sun beds overlook the beach and staff are there to help with towels, parasols etc. The pool is a very good size and is great for dipping into to have a quick cool-down. At about midday, you get a piece of fruit and chilled scented facecloths which is just a lovely little touch. Lunches at L'Ocean are delicious and not really expensive compared to the prices paid in little ramshackle cafes. You get freshly cooked food, always with linen napkins and cold cloths to refresh you afterwards.
All staff are very courteous and polite and nothing is too much bother. You are always greeted with a lovely smile and hello. The traffic controller at the entrance is ultra polite and helps you get across the very busy road and also gets taxis for you. In the evening, the turndown service covers everything, lighting, blinds pulled down, slippers laid out, water replenished, clean towels, and an incense burner lit in the bathroom which gives off a really lovely aroma and is very welcoming when you come back to your room later.
I also had a birthday and I was completely surprised by the staff bringing out a birthday cake and singing happy birthday. I thought it was my husband who had arranged this, but it was the management who obviously check dates of birth. And in the evening the words Happy Birthday were spelt out in petals on the bed. You've got to give them ten out of ten for attention to detail.
I could go on and on, but really will just repeating what other contributors have said. We loved our week here. Believe me you will not be disappointed.
