We always use Trip Advisor but have never felt the desire to leave a review until staying here.
It takes alot to impress us (me) and wanting so much from a holiday I expect to be disappointed by a few things here and there.
Arriving at this resort we chose the Sansky villa as we have an almost 4yr old and wanted the room divide area to section her off so we could have some privacy and not wake her when we use the bathroom or get a drink etc of an evening. The initial downside was that the room divide is not glass but wooden panelling with fabric inbetween so the privacy was still an issue. However, outside the villa is a HUGE bed with 3 massive meter square cushions so we used those to screen against the doors and this really helped and was little hassle.
The roof terrace was nice as we could put our little one to bed then have drinks upstairs on the oversized couches.
The villa was a great size. No toilet door shocked me but we got around it. There is a main door to the bathroom area but there are slats above it, as a very private couple this didnt sit very well with us at first.
This resort has more cushions, beds, 3 pools, is immaculate, more staff than we have seen before. We are expats so travel ALOT and see many places but we are already booking to return this year. We just do not want to leave. The prices for food are reasonable and all food has been amazing. The Oceanside pool, beds at night, food, drinks are all top class. This is one tightly run ship. Great for couples and families but we loved that it was not a place full of screaming children yet more of a relaxed, kicked back, luxury place with everything you could wish for.
Hints: with kids the Sansky Villas give the most space for a family, although are not Oceanside-this did not bother us. There is a man to help cross the road, which is not very busy. We preferred this side at day and the other of an evening.
The Silksand rooms are surrounding the main pool so are not overly private but are still beautiful and spacious. Ground floor have no bath first floor have no pool access so take your pick.
The beach is the one downside. The resort more than makes up for this. Where the resort has sand it is pure white. Our little girl was calling it 'snow' as it was so white but the actual beach smells strongly as the tide is out far during the day and the grey beach is hardly appealing. You just don't need it with infinity pools, oversized daybeds, cabanas everywhere, even table top air conditioning for outside...loved it! They have thought of everything. In the evening the tide comes I and the water in right up to the restaurant so it's beautiful and the sound of the waves helps sets the scene.
If you NEED beach then you can taxi it along the cost a little but I would stay at this resort for pure indulgence and personal attention.
Happy hour buy one gets one free every day 5.30-7pm! Free lollies and ice creams at selected times...it is just a nice place to be.
There IS a sewage plant next door. We stayed in room 306 and didn't have any problems ŵith smells or noise. It is Thailand though so hard to go out without smelling some horrible things here and there in the main streets. It is too hot with alot if cooking going on for there not to be. We live in China so are used to this.
Would highly recommend cicada market. It is only on sat/sun but is beautiful. The other markets are on every night and are the typical markets you expect from resorts in Asia.
So sad to be leaving....we will be back with our friends for sure again this year. Loved it!
