This small boutique hotel is a delight.
This trip was planned partly to honour our anniversary and for the event I had contacted the hotel prior to our arrival to book a table at the restaurant for our anniversary date. Without any request and at no extra charge, to our delight and surprise the staff had set up a table for us located on the grassed area outside the restaurant overlooking the Andaman sea. The table was decorated with beautiful plants and candles. We were also treated to a complimentary bottle of wine in our room, an anniversary message in flowers on the bed and the staff had filled the outdoor Jacuzzi for us and decorated it with frangipani and rose petals.
This personal service set the scene for our stay at Chongfah. Bliss.
So if you are planning something special and want to feel your custom is valued, stay here.
The food was very good and great value. Breakfast especially was excellent - a wide variety of options was offered.
A few things to consider - the beach is not accessible from the hotel at this time of year.
Not an issue for us but may be important for some.
We suggest to the hotel that they consider making the restaurant a non smoking area. There was a seating area nearby which could be used for smokers after or before eating. For us, food and smoke don't mix.
The Happy Hour is very happy for cocktail drinkers ( 2 for 1 ) but my husband suggests that he would be much happier if there was a 2 for 1 beer option as well!! So not so happy for him!!
The music playing in the restaurant was well chosen and played at a perfect volume.
It did not detract from the overall peace and tranquillity at Chongfah.
Chongfah is close to many restaurants, massage venues and the market. It offers free activities such as towel folding ( Alis thanks for the elephants ) and fruit carving classes and a trip to see the turtle conservation area at the nearby naval base,which we thoroughly enjoyed. There are laptops in the foyer for guest use if required - very convenient.
Overall the stars earned by this hotel are earned by all of its staff. We have travelled many times in Thailand and are used to Thai hospitality but Chongfah shines brightly. The staff are attentive, humorous, and were willing to share their language and ours. This made for a rich experience - what travel is all about!
