The Lotus Terraces took my breath away from start to finish of my one week stay. The Banyan Villa I stayed in (solo female traveller) was so tastefully done and luxurious, with an incredibly comfortable bed, and spacious washroom - with all the amenities you could imagine (every detail was considered!). Going out the the pool and the meal area, the view is absolutely breathtaking, not to mention the gorgeous landscape, everything is in its place and beautifully groomed. The beach and views were the best I had seen in Thailand, and the water was gorgeous, calm, and so picturesque. The infinity pool made for some truly stunning photos, and also, some beautiful swims in the morning after I did yoga on the deck, which overlooked the sea.
The food at Lotus Terraces was also exceptional, Khun Nam made healthy, fresh, inspired authentic Thai dishes, which were always unique and delicious. Breakfast on the patio overlooking the sea was my favourite part of the day, with fresh fruit and coconut jam made on the island. Dinner was always a fresh take on authentic Thai favourites - the best I sampled in Thailand. The service in general from both Sue and Kuhn Nam was exceptional - the staff are genuinely caring, sweet, attentive, and very good at making you feel like the Lotus Terraces could actually be your home. No request was too big or too small, and the staff went over and above to ensure that I was happy and fully cared for during my time there.
The spa services offered by the Lotus Terraces two in-house masseuses were also fantastic. I enjoyed an oil massage, and a manicure, in the very private and relaxing spa facilities there. You can also choose to have your massage outside in the private massage area on the patio, overlooking the ocean. The oil massage I enjoyed was really exceptional, given the many massages I had while in Thailand.
Tours of the island, the markets, and planning exciting evening activities, were all managed by Sue, who orchestrated wonderful excursions, with recommendations from the owners of the Lotus Terraces, Carol and Manfred. I can't say more about this amazing establishment. I would recommend it to friends and family of all ages, and all size of groups, the Lotus Terraces satisfies everything I was looking for on my trip to Thailand: luxury, wonderful service, delicious food, stunning views, great company, and getting in touch with Thai culture!
