We spent 4 nights here in Room 711 which is a Luxury Pool Suite. The room was very clean and the room well presented with modern and fresh facilities. The beds firm but very comfortable for us. We had two doubles and pushed them together to make a giant King sized bed. The housekeeping staff then made that to fit each night which was very kind of them.
The room we stayed in is on the ground floor. This hotel has all of its facilities at the Ground floor which was really convenient when accessing the restaurant and the pools.
This room had its own private plunge pool which was very refreshing. The only feedback we had for the hotel is not to lay polished marble around the pool as when it gets wet it is obviously very slippery.
I said pools because in this place, there is no shortage. There's a lagoon pool with a constant depth of 1.2m, a kids pool with a slide and another pool. Then there is a lazy river meandering around, two jumping ledges and another river raft slide.
The resort is right on the beach with a private reserve access with shark nets. You can hire watersports from the pool towel hutt. There are no jet skis here at this resort.
Central Karon or the Markets are a 15 minute walk or 200THB by hotel transport or tuk tuk.
The Buffett breakfasts were very comprehensive and the evening buffets we avoided only because of the cost. We are each night either having Pizza by the pool, in room meals or at the Beachcomber restaurant which is a steak house in front of the hotel beachside. at the steakhouse you pay around 220-280Thb per 100gm of meat.
There's nothing we could complain about here.
