My husband and I had a really nice experience in this hotel as it really met our criteria. We had looked for a small family runned hotel as often more pleasant, simple (to get away from the crowd such as the one we find in Phuket) but romantic place to stay at, and read many reviews on trip adviser before chosing this hotel, and the choice revealed itself to be the right one.
We got married six moths ago and spent our honeymoon in Fiji. Although the pacific ocean is wonderful, no doubt about it, everything is incredibly expensive there and the hotel team we stayed at was always trying to push guests to spend as much money as possible. Haadson resort is completely different : the team is always trying to please and advise you as much as possible without being pushy. In fact you go there to relax, enjoy reading a good book on the beach or by the beautiful pool where you can order a fruit cocktail or else whenever you feel like it, or to walki on the long white sandy beach and to experience a few getaways such as the James Bond island or some islands where you can do snorkeling. Whichever hotel you stay close to Khao Lak offers you the same deal anyway. At least close to Haadson resort, apart from the fact that it is on a public beach (busy on the weekends but not at all during the week) and far enough (a few meters from the beach) to be on the safe side in case of another tsunami, but just as normal as it would be in our countries, it's not full of people. indeed, it is quite far away from the other hotels which mean you have space for yourself.
When we experienced the James Bond island, we really enjoyed the fact that everything was planned only for the two of us and it really felt special. We had our own taxi, boat, guide, table in the restaurant for ourselves. We were even able to swim just the two of us in between the rocky islands. What a romantic holiday, isn't it ?
The last thing I would like to mention is the incredible evening we experienced on December 31st, 2008. The choice of food we were given in the buffet was incredible and the show and dances organised with the local school funded by the king after the tsunami on that night was simply wondeful. Moreover, the amazing and most memorial moment we experienced on that night is when the guests of the hotel were given those balloons to light up in the air. There were hundreds of them in the sky.
Surely we will remember this holiday ! Thank you so much for all of this you have given to us Haasdon resort team !
