The service we received was outstandingly good in every respect, from the personal welcome to the lifting of the bags into the taxi to the airport; nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and extremely efficient staff.
The "room" we were allocated was as superbly designed as the whole complex and felt more like a suite than a room. Comprising a bed/sitting room, balcony and discreetly separate en suite, it was compact, comfortable and very user friendly. Another triumph of the design is that it feels very open and spacious, yet no room is overlooked by another. Brilliant.
The exact location may not be everyone's cup of tea (when I tried to buy some postcards of Nai Yang at the airport, the shopkeeper informed me that there were none because Nai Yang is not pretty as it is too near the airport) but we liked it and would urge visitors to venture beyond the limits of Indigo Pearl (excellent though that is) and make good use of the shops and facilities of Nai Yang Beach. We had massages on the beach, bought clothes from the tailor and Mr. Kobi's Bar ("Broken English spoken here perfect") is an absolute must.
I cannot say what we liked best and least because we enjoyed all of it. What did surprise us was the extent of the Indigo Pearl development; I expected a hotel (the booking was made for me) and found a brilliantly designed holiday resort covering several acres. On reflection I think we can say that what we liked best about the whole experince was the combination of Indigo Pearl's seemingly effortless and unostentatious luxury with rougher edges of the beach resort.
Would we go again? You bet we would.
