We stayed for 10 nights in November. It is simply a beautiful resort. We stayed in the Shino rooms. I'm so thrilled we booked these. Best room I have ever stayed in. They felt authentic, stylish and very spacious. The woman who looked after our room, Nok, was so friendly and lovely she really added to our stay. The other amenities were also lovely - reception and the reading room, breakfast buffet/Sue's restaurant, the pool and the beach.
The food was nice enough at breakfast and at Sue's. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant on the main road where we had one evening meal and it was delicious but slightly more expensive than other place we had eaten.
The women who offer massages on the beach are so friendly especially Pom. It's an hour long message for around £6 which is amazing value and makes up for the lack of privacy.
Unfortunately the wifi signal was poor and I could only use the internet sat in reception. There was a couple of days when an older man was around Sue's restaurant shouting orders at the staff, we presumed he was management. We were disappointed by this as we found the staff amazing but this gentleman's behaviour poor. Also the sand paths, which are pretty were annoying especially in the rain. We would be caked in sand on an evening out. In addition there's a biting bug that lives in sand in Thailand and I'm sure the sand paths increased the number of bites I got. I was disappointed the hotel didn't do a little extra for my friends 50th birthday despite an email exchange about this, I think it was a missed opportunity for them.
The hotel's location is amazing if you don't mind low over head planes. The staff, reception, bell hop and security made us feel safe and cared for. Lovely beach, great for shopping. Great choice of bars and restaurants. Walking distance to the lake. If there in November I'd definitely recommend the Festivals of lights - Loi Kathrong. And also pack a rain mac! When it rains it really rains! We lost the beach due to high see levels after several days of rain and two boat trips were cancelled. We made the most of it when it rained though, better than being at work in chilly Yorkshire!!
