I escaped Phuket after busy working days with my girlfriend to Khao lak for one night.
We this time decided to not stay at our preferred resort but to try something different.
I was recommended to stay at Monochrome Resort. It looks great from the website.
It is chic and cool hotel comparing to traditional resorts in Khao Lak area.
I decided to book a lover room (kind of suite room). The rate found on internet is quite high up
to the entry room type of Le Meridien, Khao Lak.
Firstly, the resort location is difficult to find with no road side signage at all.
I drove pass for almost 10 kilometers and to turn around.
Upon arrival and check-in, I found that the hotel design is quite different and chic indeed comparing to others nearby. However, a lover room's configuration does not make sense i.e., there is no power plug for hair dryer in front of the mirror but on the another side of the room, there is no toilet door (no even a glass door) even though it is a lover room but I do not see or am seen all the times and how about preventing unsatisfied smell to the bedroom.
The resort location is not on beach in which you have to walk a long way to the beach or if taking short cut you have to walk pass back of the house of other resorts, not so nice.
The breakfast here I can say that it is the worst I have ever experienced, super limited and
very bad quality and taste. I understand that breakfast items during low season is limited but it does not have to be poor quality.
It wasting my limited holiday time and money. Even though I am very easy going and complaint free person but for this resort I will never go there again definitely.
