My husband and I stayed here for four nights in August and for first time ever in Thailand only eating at this resort and drinking bottle water we got gastro and were sick for two weeks after returning home. The worst holiday we have ever had! After having just stayed at The Shore Katathani (a true 5 star resort) we were extremely disappointed to arrive at this resort and be driven to our room past a stinky smelling river that nearly made us vomit. This smell is everywhere near the whole front of the resort and on the dirty beach. After having left the beautiful Kata Noi beach we were very upset considering the price we were paying for our balcony spa deluxe room.
Having said that one positive is the room, they are quite beautiful with plenty of space and a wonderful view from the balcony of the pool and beach (building 8). The bathroom is large if not a little strange with a spacelike shower and a mirror right in front of it but I still liked it. The cleaning staff were efficient, no problems there. The negatives are the food is terrible for a five star resort, they have a stupid towel/ticket system which I have never encountered anywhere in the world and our lift in building 8 was out of order for nearly our whole stay. We did enjoy the adults only pool but again its not very big with few loungers available. I would avoid this hotel if you are a couple with no children, its more like a cement jungle with crazy kids everywhere.
