Amazing place definitely a yes to stay here!!
The room was large, well furnished, large bed with good standard of bedding.
Bath room was a glass enclosed capsule in the room. There were blinds on the glass walls if you wanted privacy. Separate shower, massive bath, and normal sink & toilet. Bath & pool towels were provided in the room.
The whole place was designed like a mini village, courtyards with swimming pools and streams everywhere. Plants, trees and flowers everywhere. The key holder has a map on it....and we needed it.
The hotel slops downwards to the beach with stairs, ramps and little wooden bridges everywhere.
I think it is ok for disabled and pushchairs if you don't mind pushing back up the ramps afterwards. There were disabled toilets available so I guess they must have rooms for disabled too. I didnt see any disabled access to any pools. One pool I saw did have concrete steps the rest were metal step ladders.
The food was very good, buffet style breakfast and dinner. A good mixture of western and Thai. We were offered dinner during our stay due to workmen on the beach ( putting up reinforcement wall ) didn't really affect us but dinner was a nice touch.
The spa was more uk prices, but the staff were well trained and services were good. Outside the Hotel units offering treatments were hit and miss to the quality of the treatment.
Free wifi in the lounge otherwise it was fairly expensive in the room about £10 for 3 hours ( if I remember correctly)
We both really enjoyed our stay here, it is pure bliss, quiet and well designed with friendly professional staff.
