My wife and I stayed here for one night as part of our Golden Triangle Tour.
After a quick check in we were taken to our room and given a brief introduction.
Rooms/tents are great, nice big space, huge bed, bathroom was beautiful, tea & coffee, mini bar, AC, TV all we required. After a tiring day we had our meal in our room which was very good although there wasn't a huge choice on the menu.
The next morning we saw our surroundings for the first time and weren't disappointed. This is a really beautiful setting and so peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of city life.
We had an early start as our driver was picking us up a 8.00. We were told breakfast started at 7.30 which we felt was quite late. Anyway, we were there at 7.30 on the dot to find another guest already dining, he left just a couple of minutes after we arrived??? They appeared to have the facility for a buffet but that day breakfast was cooked to order. Not a problem if the hotel is not busy then I understand there could be a lot of waste. We placed our order straight away, scrambled eggs for my wife, scrambled eggs and the 'meat dish, of sausage and ham. It took 15 minutes for my wife eggs to be served and was closer to 8.00 by the time I got mine. As I said I'm against waste but this is standard breakfast fare and should be ready much quicker. (we had no plan to stop for lunch so breakfast was important to us)
Already late for our tour we rushed to reception to find another guest checking out, after what felt like an eternity it was my turn. 10 more minutes wasted doing who knows what and we eventually got to leave now 40 minutes late. Not good enough I'm afraid, you are charging top prices so I'm expecting top services.
Our driver commented that when he phoned our guide to advise of the delay the guide said this was not uncommon for the Rasa.
Overall a beautiful place and the staff were very polite and friendly, but breakfast not starting until 7.30 and then the time taken to make breakfast and check out is just to slow.
I can only rate this as a 3 which is a shame but if you're not in a hurry this is the one for you.
