Lovely Hotel at the north end of Chaweng. We always take time when deciding which hotels to stay at when going on holiday and this time was no exception. I am pleased to say our homework really paid off and we enjoyed every minute at this gem of resort.
We enjoyed that the hotel was in a quiet location but with the “excitement” of Chaweng just a short taxi ride away (200 Baht, agree price with driver up front). The beach area is not as good as elsewhere in Chaweng, but that did not bother us as we prefer to use the pool for swimming. The pool side loungers were close together so we preferred to use the loungers at the beach where it was less crowded.
We had a deluxe room on first floor level with a large verandah. Those at ground level seemed to have a much darker patio area and did not appeal to us. On reaching the room it was a good size, but fitted with 2 single beds, rather than a king sized. The staff seemed upset that things were not as we wanted, and this was very promptly corrected with a minimum of fuss. Lighting in the room was not that great, but a minor inconvenience.
The buffet breakfast at Ocean Kiss overlooked the sea. There was a wide choice to suit all tastes. We had lunch at the beach bar a couple of times. Nice choice of food, well cooked and presented.
The hotel staff were fantastic and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. Khun Ball, who made up our room and did the turn down service, was really friendly and went out of his way to make sure things were just right for us.
We used the library for occasional use of the internet access, but that was really an excuse to get the benefit of the air con.
We never got round to making use of the kayaks – I had fancied exploring the small isle about 200 metres offshore however our guide on an organised tour of Samui told us it is teeming with king cobras, so a lucky escape…
