This was our first visit to Thailand and we read Many reviews on tripadvisor before hand. Dispite some of the negative reviews we just kept coming back to the same resort because of the beautiful pictures of the authentic wooden huts. I am so glad we did! The experience has been awesome!
On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who offered us complimentary drinks, he showed us to our hut (102) over looking the sea and carried our bags. He showed us how the room worked, airco, mini bar, safe, wifi Internet ect and then left us to it.
The hut was amazing, very clean and comfortable. We were blown away by the decor and the romantic feel. Fresh flowers laid out on the bed, scented oil burner in the bathroom and the most incredible rain shower!
The resort itself was very quiet when we arrived the week before Xmas which suited us perfectly, as we were after a romantic getaway.
The gardens are beautiful and the staff work very hard to keep them clean and tidy.
The resort is situated perfectly... Close enough to the main shops and restaurants, but far away that you are not in amongst it all. We hired a scooter from the shop opposite the resort as recommended by the staff and they were brilliant.
Some people have said that the staff seem unfriendly here, we totally disagree, they smile and are very happy to help, just like any forgien country you need get to know the locals and you need to say hello and smile too.
The restaurant food is lovely, lovely staff and very well presented food. It is expensive in comparison to thaifood on the main strip but not over priced compare to back home.
Most days we were the only couple on the beach and by the pool and it was so relaxing... Being that I am a school teacher the lack of screaming kids dive bombing the pool suited me just fine, but I am sure kids would love the resort too.
The beach is small and not the picture postcard Thai beach but it's a very close second. The sea can be a little rough to get the best snorkeling in but if lying on a secluded beach is your thing then it's no problem at all.
Honestly the only negative thing I can say from our stay is the beds are a little hard, I prefer a softer bed but in the end I slept very well!
Hope you enjoy the resort as much as we did, we will be returning next year!
