Ok..to sum up. My husband and I LOVED Ten thousand waves.
It was peaceful, calm, lovely..etc...The staff save for a couple rude floks was lovely and pleasant and helpful. We stayed for 4 nights in the Full Moon room.. It is their biggest and most expensive room. It was a lovely room. It reminded me of what a weekend cabin in the woods would be. The bed was a bit hard but not too bad, a king would have been nice.. The full kitchen was wonderful to have. We shopped in town and cooked several meals on our own. The breakfast in the morning of granola and fruit was surprisingly satisfying. We also barbequed on the habachi on the deck on night. Our room also had a washer and dryer. All very nice. The problem here is the price of the room. For 349 dollars a night this was in no way worth it. The room didn't have a separate bed room and the bath room was no more than a normal bathroom in a normal house. Though we did LOVE the heated toilet seat!! Also it was odd to get no benefit at the bath house for staying on site. We will be back. But we will be back in low season and we will stay in a smaller room. If they drop their prices we will be back more. For those staying on site maybe something like a free private bath at night? Discount on spa services? Something to cover the crazy cost. Go there, I highly recommend it, but go in low season or it will break your budget.
