Stayed at the Satai for an extended period while in town for business. The decor and atmosphere is very serene and tranquil. The staff was professional and helpful. The rooms are well appointed, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The shower is awesome. The pool area consists of 3 separate pools (all different temperature) with a large amount of of lounge areas available. The beach is right there and the private area for the hotel is excellent with plenty of lounge chairs and an attentive staff. The gym is small but sufficient and very clean and although I never used it, the spa facility looked nice with a professional looking staff.
The breakfast buffet is expensive but there are plenty of choices. The only thing I didn't like were the pancakes and french toast which is not made fresh and sitting out on a platter. The breakfast buffet gets very busy during the weekend so I would suggest getting there as early as possible. The complementary newspapers at the buffet are also a nice touch.
The only negative thing that stands out was the turndown service which sometimes showed up as late as 11 PM when I was consistently already settled in for the night and I sent them away more times than not (like I said I was there for work). You would think they would have figured it out and done my room earlier. The housekeeping, room service and maintenance staff were all very good.
Overall it was an excellent stay and I look forward to returning.
