We booked here as part of a group of 21 guests, staying between 7 and 16 nights. We wanted a base where we would feel as though we were in Thailand and not in a faceless hotel which could be anywhere in the world.
The World Resort proved to be the perfect choice for everyone of us.
The deluxe bungalows although a little worn, added to the charm, perfectly comfortable, cleaned everyday, and new bath and beach towels everyday.
The setting is perfect, peaceful gardens, nice pool area, and pathway leading down to the bar/restaurant area overlooking the beach.
There are over 50 staff working here, they are all so polite, always smiling, and greeting you with "Sawadika".
The manageress (Dee) must be very proud of all her staff.
They made us feel like friends, not just customers.
From the receptionists (Soniaporn), through to the bar / restaurant staff(Na, Pu, Ko, Gate, Kassara, Ploy) to name but a few were so very good, always there to help with any request.
On one occasion the night before our daughters wedding (which took place on the other side of the island), they made up a table on the beach for 27 of us. Floating candles, flowers, chair covers etc + Gate and Kassara did a fire eating/flame show for us all at no extra charge other than the standard meal costs. This is just an example that they give that extra effort to ensure guests have memories to cherish.
The restaurant food is excellent, it may cost a bit more than the local roadside restaurants and some of the busy venues in fishermans village, but the setting overlooking the beach and bay plus the quality and quantity make it brilliant value. We tried many places and always our favourite was the World Resort
After a nice breakfast the beach area is the ideal place to relax, try a massage and swim in the warm sea. Enjoy a light lunch+drink and relax some more.....perfect.
I can highly recommend World Resort to anyone who wants what our party was looking for in a perfect Thai holiday venue.
Beach View Bungalows are best + the Beach Front Bungalow must be the best location in Bo Phut
