We stayed at the Senses for 6 nights in November and we loved it. We had the pool access room which was amazing and well worth the extra money for the convience, location and view. The rooms were large, well equipped, the bed was farily firm but that didnt worry us. Very good standard of room in our opinion.
The pool is huge and has an amazing view overlooking Patong. The deck located by the pool was great to sit down, have some drinks and food while looking out over Patong and the ocean.
We all loved the breakfast, great selection, awesome omlette bar and again that view you cant beat.
We met some amazing people at the hotel and Tony out the front seemed to always be there to greet us by name and offer and advice we needed.
Its probably about a 10min walk from Bangla and 15min from the beach but its not a bad walk, fairly easy to find your way. Close enough to get to everything but far enough away from everything in the same breath Yes there is a hill to get to the hotel but its not nearly as bad as some people say. Probably takes you 1min from the bottom to the top.
Its farily new resort so a lot of tuk tuk and taxi drivers dont quite know the name of it, so make sure you take one of the cards with the addres and directions. For ease once you arrive specially if late at night maybe consider the hotel car to pick you up, definatly made our arrival so much easier.
So all in all, its great value, great location, great rooms and great people, what else could you want. Next time in Patong we will be staying here again.
