My partner and I stayed in pool villa 7 for 8 days over Christmas. It is quite an expensive villa/ room really , but if it had been worth the money I wouldn't mind.
Firstly the view from the villa is amazing, but that's it really.!
I think it unfair to call it a 'resort' , the restaurant was still being built and that is the only facility offered. We were asked if we would like our meals in our room, but the room is so far from the restaurant it would be cold by the time it reached us. There is no phone in the room service. There is a very steep, exhausting and at times dangerous walk to the restaurant which is by the sea. I fell over once in the dirt, there are limited lights and no hand rails. I am only 40 and reasonably fit but found myself dreading the walk back up the hill to our ' villa'.
The villa although at first has the wow factor you quickly realise once darkness falls (6pm) that you need to rush around lighting every mosquito repellant possible. There a/c in the villa but none of the doors shut together propery so you have to wrap you self in a mosquito net to sleep, it's such a palava. The bathroom conects to the bedroom with a folding door and the bathroom s open to the elements... The Mosquitos again. We had our own infinity pool but it was dirty and as the power goes off regularly the filter stops.
The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you, but it's very overrated. Definitely not worth 12000 tb a night!
