A nice small place with less than forty rooms. Apart from the three villas (the Jacuzzi villas are recommended) the rooms are localised in 'Salas' i.e. one or two (most of them) storeyed small houses. The lower level has basically no view other than towards the outside walkways, and more importantly, whoever walks on these can look into your room. The rooms have large windows on three sides, so your room is pretty exposed! Hence, choose the upper level rooms on these houses or keep the curtains down.
The toilet section of these rooms is not ventilated and otherwise open. The AC-outlet is situated right above the bed which might be disturbing if you need to run it when asleep. Internet is complimentary, also in your room (WiFi) if within reach of one of the routers.
The staff are most helpful and go a long way to secure your needs. The morning/lunch staff at the 'Kitchen' definitively can be improved upon. Most staff at this restaurant are male and the restaurant and guests would very likely profit from changing this gender ratio.
Overall this hotel has adopted a policy to try to keep the guests business within the hotel, having a moderate price level on all services provided rather than overcharging as most luxury hotels. This is most commendable!
The pool is fine and beautifully situated just by the sea shore, which in itself is very nice and very secluded. Around the corner lies a long white beach that stretches for a couple of miles also past the Krabi Sheraton.
By the way - do not walk on the slippery rocks when the tide is out! I wonder how many injure themselves each year? The hotel does unfortunately not provide a warning sign. If you take a boat tour the staff will however meet you on the return landing with a fresh drink and towels - very pleasant!
We tried also the spa, at a reduced rate and this is definitively to be recommended.
For those that do not know Thailand that well; Always start your vacation with a manicure and pedicure treatment, then have a few massages (e.g. starting with feet and legs) during your stay. It does not come better and more affordable than in Thailand.
The guests you will meet here are mainly couples 30 +/- 5 years that do not really seek to interact with others. No disturbing music.
In conclusion, this is a small quite hotel where you can enjoy a high degree of privacy and good service at a reasonable, although not too low, price.
Probably the ideal honeymoon place.
If you want to spend much more money and get much less, go to the Rayavadee!
