“Fantastic Family Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Just returned from a 2 week break at the Apsara, we were upgraded to a Villa which was fantastic, very modern, spacious and clean.
The staff could not do enough to help and were always there to help, there was always a great selection of food at every mealtime and everybodys tate were catered for even my 8 year old daughter.
The beach was huge and you could literally walk for miles and the pools at the villas never seemed to get crowded unlike the main hotel pool.
The hotel is a little of the beaten track but thats what we went for, the relaxation and peaceful break. There are other restaurants if you wanted them in walking distance and for a few pounds you could take a 10 min taxi ride into the next town.
I would definately go back and highly recommend the elephant trek..

Room Tip: Go for the Villas definitely worth it.

Just got back 30/4/14, after spending 10 wonderful days at the Apsaras hotel. Could not fault it, the staff could not do enough,swim up room well worth the extra money, if you are really lucky you will see the monitor lizard that frequents the hotel pool and grounds.Even though the food was good at the hotel, we spent most of the evenings in The Kieng Lay restaurant at the bottom of the road, a short walk from the hotel. Fantastic food and a genuine family run business, well worth a visit if you want to experience real Thai food with the local people, make sure you cover yourself with insect repellant, especially toes and feet, the mosquitos are vicious!!

Room Tip: Swim up room a must.

Back from a holiday where the weather was fantastic everyday and this hotel is excellent. Not sure if would go all inclusive next time as opposed to bed and breakfast but that is personal choice. The photos do not do the pool villas justice you have your own private pad with Jacuzzi pool and front room and outside monsoon shower. The staff cannot be faulted and embarrass you sometimes at their level of service and will always golf cart you about the resort.
Special mention to golf and the staff at the horizons bar in the villas . If in the villas memories bar only a short walk which has loads of atmosphere.
Great place , ill be back

We stay in a Garden Villa for one week in April. We were stunned at the size and decor, it was absolutely gorgeous. Stylish and modern, with polished concrete flooring, pale teak furnishings and a rather trick outdoor bathtub, which we never used as it lacked the privacy I prefer in my daily toilette. The staff was very attentive and our every need was dealt with promptly, with a gracious smile. We ate most of our meals in the villa restaurant and we did all of our sunbathing at the villa pools. At first, I was a bit doubtful of the menu items, but I realized after a few days that it was more the descriptions of the meals rather than the food itself. Everything we ate was delicious. There was a barbeque one night that we at first didn't feel like we wanted but we were sooo glad we changed our minds! The hotel is a ways out of "town" but since we had deliberately chosen to have a relaxing week at the end of our Thailand trip of three weeks, we were fine with just hanging at the hotel most of the time. The main hotel did seem rather crowded with package tours clients, so my recommendation is to definitely spend the additional and stay in the villas.....you won't be sorry.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of the villas....they are all splendid. There are also pool villa b...

I am going to say without any hesitation whatsoever, that our stay in the garden villa here was the best holiday we've ever had....( and we're pretty well traveled )
Upon arrival we were swiftly taken care of by a very charming young man named Golf, who is the front desk manager. He personally escorted us ( we're a family with two young children ) to our villa, and explained everything we needed to know about our stay. He is very friendly and genuinely wanted us to get the most from our holiday.
The villa was spotlessly clean and spacious with very good air conditioning and ceiling fan.
Every single member of staff we encountered, from housekeepers to managers, were genuinely very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them ...they buzz around the resort in buggies and will always stop and offer you lifts from one side of the resort to the other...or if they already have passengers they'll grin and wave ...lol.
The hotel is 20 minutes drive to the local markets, but there are plenty of taxis available at reasonable cost. It's the perfect location to chill without being pestered by touts and it is on a beautiful clean white sandy beach. The food is plentiful and very nicely presented. Only two gripes I have are that the bed was as hard as a rock, and that smoking was allowed around the pool and resteraunt despite the claim that the hotel is smoke free.

My friend and myself stayed here for a week and we were absolutely amazed by this resort. The service is perfect. The staff was very friendly and always available if we needed something. We were always greeted with a friendly smile which made us feel welcome and homey. Both pools are really nice and provide a great atmosphere. The white sand beach is clean and perfect for some relaxing hours in the sun. The rooms were nice in size and well furnished. Only the bed was a bit too hard for my taste. We didn't book all inclusive but there was no need for it anyways. Right beside the hotel is a really nice beach bar with great drinks and awesome Thai food for really cheap prices. We spent every single day there and had a great time. The breakfast buffet at the hotel was also very satisfying. They offer a variety of different food ranging from eggs, bacon, different sweet stuff to stir fried noodles and rice. The only thing I was a little disappointed about were the fresh fruit options. Some watermelon and mango was really missing at the breakfast buffet.
Overall we had a really great experience and I can just recommend this resort to everybody. Hopefully I will be back at Apsara someday!

The hotel is perfect in every way. The rooms are clean and spacious, pools are lovely, beach is huge with soft golden sand. We were very happy with the food and cocktails full of fresh local fruits are to die for. The staff are very polite and friendly. I would recommend it to everyone.
