Have you ever went to visit someone who has made you feel like you are the most important person in the world? Would you like to and at the same time be living on a very beautiful beach, having everything that you need for a luxurious, relaxing and peaceful holiday with excellent service on a personal level?
Go to Luckanawadee Boutique Beach Resort.
My wife and I went to Thailand with our son Noel, who is 1,5 yrs old, during Christmas 2010. This was our first trip outside Europe with Noel, so we booked a package deal to an all inclusive family resort. in Khao Lak, Thailand. Due to many reasons we did not like the family resort and started looking for another place to stay. By chance we stumbled upon a hidden gem at the end of the beach, Luckanawadee.
When we first went in through the entrance it felt like we walked in to a private home. An estate with several beautiful buildings built in Thai/Colonial Style (Ordinary since Thailand never ever has been colonized) accompanied with an lovely and lush garden, filled with exclusive pottery, orchids and palm trees of various kind.
The suites, which all are of very high standard and have everything you need - Bathtube, shower, TV, DVD, air condition, fan, american style toilets, safety box, wardrobe etc - are situated in 4 different and separate houses. There are two beach front villas, one house with four suites (we stayed in one of these) and one house with two suites. At a total the place hosts 20 guests, which makes it very special and personal as well as creates a feeling of being by your self, exclusively.
The Owner, Luck, his partner Adam (american) and their small staff will get you anything you want or need. If you want lunch or dinner they will get it for you from the really good local restaurants and serve it outside your room, in the open air dining room, on the beach, by the bar or where ever you want it.
However, the best part of it all is their breakfast idea. "What you want, when you want it." Every morning you get the question: "What do you want?" And they literally mean it. The first morning I ordered a pancake, two boiled eggs, some toast and juice. There is always a selection of yogurth available (Strawberry, KIwi, Coconut etc) and every single morning they go to the local market to buy fresh fruit (Papaya, Mango, Pineapple, Dragon fruit etc) - only to serve it to you nicely cut on a plate while waiting for your order. And if you are in a rush, please tell them, cause it takes some time to make 10 different orders, so there can be some waiting.
However, when some one presents a heart shaped pancake especially made for you it is all right to have been waiting for a bit.
There are so many things Luck, Adam and Luckanawadees staff did to make us feel at home, special and exclusive that we can not tell you all. In a place like this, managed by the family, there are always small things that needs to be fixed. And they are. Continuously.
We had a very relaxing and refreshing experience at Luckanawadee and I can heartily recommend you to go there. With me I have memories for life and when I go back it is with the feeling of going to visit dear life long friends.
