“Terrific Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

We had a marvelous stay at this resort! The shower and tub were fantastic and the room was wonderful. The rooms with the pool access are definitely worth the price as the pool is fantastic. It really makes the resort special. The breakfast was more than adequate, with lots of choices. The staff was friendly and helpful, although some were more fluent in english than others. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel room is very nicely decorated, very comfortable bed (with mosquito net, which really helps), food is lovely and service is good. Wished I had more time to use the swimming pool though, as it is really gorgeous.

After leaving the hustle and bustle of Phuket, never to return, we landed in Chang Mia at this beautiful resort. I would have to say this is the most picturesque hotel/resort that I have been to in Thailand. The pool is just amazing, the rooms are unbelievable (spa in the room, shower with 8 shower heads, soft comfortable bed), staff that cannot be more helpful. Chang Mai is an amazing place without the rubbish of the tourist area of Phuket. Would highly recommend doing a couple of days in Chang Ria if time permits as it is a brilliant base to see so much.

Room Tip: Deluxe Lama Pool Side Access is worth the extra cost.

There is actually not much to say, we just had a great time:
- Beautiful rooms with a great bathtub and shower
- Stunningly friendly staff
- Good breakfast
- Great pool
- Shuttle service to the airport

Only downside is the location, it is pretty far from the city. You need a taxi to get there.

Beautiful decoration and the lake shaped pool is wonderful. It is huge with islands in the middle; it takes about 5 minutes to do a circuit. Our beautiful, comfortable room had French doors giving onto our private terrace with a table and chairs, and a step directly into the water.

The grounds are beautifully maintained, the staff helpful and the food good. Outside the hotel is a fascinating local night market with food, bars, restaurants and massage.

Pros:
1. Private jacuzzi with good hot water system. Never run out of hot water.
2. Pool access from balcony.
3. Good range for breakfast. You can even request for breakfast box to be sent to your room if you have early departure for touring to Chiang Rai for example.
Cons:
1. No wifi in rooms, only have cable for lap top.
2. They didn't bring in the breakfast box on my last day.
3. Location is 10min drive from town, costs TBH200 each way.
Tips:
1. There is a spa right outside the resort. Above the Shabu restaurant. Only TBH200/hr for Thai massage and TBH300/hour for oil massage.
2. Night market outside resort has many stalls that sell things at incredibly low price. A pair of short khaki pants only TBH75!!!!
3. Big C supermarket walking distance with wide range of food at the food park and many fast food restaurants.

Room Tip: Get the one with pool access. If you use tablet and not lap top, you may want to request for room 31...

I would like to confirm all the positive reviews of the hotel. Love this hotel. Stayed 6 days 6 nights (cos checked in at midnight). We could spend almost 3 whole afternoons in the hotel without going out but just using the facilities: jacuzzi in the room, gym, sauna, pool. And do not mind so for the entire stay.

Breakfast: I beg to differ on the reviewer who was not satisfied with the breakfast. The spread was more than we could fill. There's western breakfast (toasts, waffles, danishs, croissants, cakes, bacon, ham, sausages, baked beans, grilled tomatoes, baked potatoes, your choice of omelette or sunny side up cereals & even mueslis). There's the savoury ones which include fried rice, fried noodles (different everyday for up to 5/6 days), porridge, soup, local popular curries, stir fried fish/chicken,and veggies). There are also a good spread of fresh fruits and salads with a variety of dressings. It is promptly topped-up. Even after 10am (after the stipulated breakfast duration). What more could one ask for? As a saying goes, "Free lunch could be given provided one controls his/her appetite".

Pool: The pool area is so nice you could just doing nothing the whole day.The pool is very clean (cleaned everyday) and do not have any chlorine smell. Or if you like, there is also a fully equipped gym (with sauna and steam bath). Towels, drinking water and lockers are thoughtfully provided.

Service: Great service, great hospitality. The front desk receptionists and the concierge staff are very helpful. They even used their own handphone to call the numbers we got from the internet to enquire about the attractions (i.e. elephant park, flight of the gibbon). Our request to extend the checking out time to 1230 was easily granted.

WIFI: WIFI access in the restaurant and area around it.No WIFI in the room but looks like there is a cable for internet access which we only noticed on upon checking out (which is a blessing in disguise for totally undisrupted holiday). There are 4 PCs provided in the lobby for internet access. Sufficient for most guests.

Environmental friendly: The drinking water is provided in glass bottles instead of plastic bottles and are replenished everyday. 4-5 bottles of 500 ml. We only need to buy a 5L from 7-11 for all the 6 days. Unlike in other hotels which we would need to do so every other day. Also, rattan laundry basket is provided instead of plastic bags. Most of the trees are named along the walkways.

The photos would speak for itself. There are too many photos to post that exceeds the allowable numbers so I have compiled them.
