We must say that the WARMTH of the staff in THE SHORE made them stand out from the rest of the locals, even comparing them to the current 5star we are staying at now.
Room: Fantabulous view of the Kata Noi beach! We could've stayed all day in the room just staring out to the sea from the TOPMOST villa. The sound of the waves were heard even from our high villa which made it so relaxing... Since I put a lot of weight on to room views --- I must say the room is a 5. Size of room very large and I love the wooden floor planks in the washroom -- keeps your feet warm after shower.
Breakfast: Very good! They serve steak and many other stuff. I also loved their mangosteen. Must mention the very friendly staff especially SHOLON (hope I got his name right) who took the time out to chitchat with us & told us about the Tsunami that hit Phuket few years back. He also taught us how to perfectly peel a mangosteen. It's service like this that makes you feel like you're being pampered.
Restaurant: Fine dining was excellent! Premium quality beef and seafood and recipes well done.
Serenity Spa: SUPER excellent. Maybe the BEST we've had NOT just in Thailand but compared to all Spas we've been to! The technique and the pressure was PERFECT. We can tell these staff were trained VERY well.
Beach: Unfortunately as lovely as the view from the high Villa, the actual waters of Kata Noi was a disappointment ---- there was bits and pieces of garbage that lined the ENTIRE shore. Made us stay clear from the beach waters. Maybe a major cleaning project needs to be implemented, though we know they clean the shores 2x/day.
Resort Facilities: Library tiny ; Boutique items not nice ; Fitness center tiny ; Lobby tiny.
OVERALL a pleasant experience. Resort quite pricey though.
