Grand Sunset Hotel, Where do i start!
This hotel is everything it says it is and more.
"Simple But Different" , "Home away from Home" All of the above.
Grand Sunset was recommended to me by a local Thai friend, and WOW what a recommendation it was.
We had 4 rooms in total 2 x 2 Bedrooms Suites and 2 x Grand Deluxe Rooms. All on the 5th floor.
All rooms were clean tidy (serviced everyday), fresh free drinking water daily, in room safe, cheap mini bar, separate air-con and flat screen TV's in each bedroom. (Not that you come to Thailand to watch TV). If you are staying in a 2 Bedroom suite with friends. Make sure you aren't shy with bathroom use. As there is only a frosted glass door between the bathroom and lounge, the bathroom also has another frosted glass door adjacent to one of the bedrooms, like an ensuite.
Yes the even numbered rooms have a great view of the hillside and the odd numbered rooms have a view of the buildings next door.
Breakfast was included and served by the rooftop pool on the 6th floor. Breakfast was buffet style, with fresh fruit, Thai and Western selections as well as eggs and omelettes cooked to order.
The hotel is a short walk across to the beach, there are many restaurants and everything you need nearby. The location is perfect, far enough away from the hussle and bussle, but close enough to walk. There are plenty of eating options and a market nearby.
There is 10% discount offered at the restaurant, massage place and wine shop next door as they are all owned by the hotel owner.
The staff were the number 1 from the warm welcome on arrival, to bringing us endless drinks around the pool.
This was my 5th visit to Thailand and 1st time to Karon, this hotel is 3.5-4star, taking that into consideration. Be friendly, smile and treat the Thai staff like human beings and watch the 5 Star service come forward.
Simply amazing. Thank-you to Starfish and the team you are doing an outstanding job, keep up the great work! I will be back very soon for sure.
Even Number Rooms have best view.
