This resort is very modern an fairly new to koh Samui.Its the sister hotel to Samui resortel & spa ,just 10 min walk down the road ,south way.We stayed at Samui resortel last time,twice,it's very nice,but more expensive as its on the beach.Chewang best beach!!!!.we thought we would give verticolour a try this time.it's a 10-15 min walk to the main hub of all the expensive restaurant,but the eating outlets down this end are more cheaper to dine in an nice an quiet too.
Check in was smooth,with welcoming staff ,we got a free up grade to a deluxe room,which was great,overlooking the pool an in a quiet spot of the resort.
The room was spacious ,good size bathroom,air con,etc...... Hard mattress,but still manager a not bad sleep.......The door to the room an bathroom door was very dirty with hand marks,due to the fact the doors were all white,white doesn't stand a chance in any hotel or house !!!! .......
Free wifi only in the foyer was a available,there is 4 Internet computer to use in the foyer,if you don't have your own iPad,etc. it's fast wifi too.
The pool is of a big size,it's is bigger than its sister hotel,heaps of deck chair an sun shines all day over this pool.There is a pool bar with good price drinks.There is showers an toilets by the pool as well.I can't understand WHY a pool would open at 9.00 am only,I miss out on my early morning swim an seeing the sun rise.You can also use the beach deck chair at Samui resortel on the beach,buy drinks there too.The BEST BEACH of koh Samui .!!!!!!!!
Breakfast was served by 7 am to 10 am only ,it was basic,but ample for us!!! .There was 2 juices,toast ,jam,white toast only!! ,eggs,sausage,ham,salad , fruit and noodle chicken veg.tea,coffee.i think it was better than basic.
Overall this resort represent fantastic value that's for sure,it no 5 star,it's more like a tunes hotel standard ,but with bigger rooms an more services available an nice pool an the beach is straight across the road,though another resort.
Would stay here again,maybe yes for a quick cheap holiday,but I would choose the 2 room suite.
PS : if you want my taxi drivers number,who I have use 3 times now,just inbox me an I will send it.He has a motor bike shop too to hire bikes from,cheap ,cheap !!! He's does transfers to airport too.
