We booked this hotel and we a soon as we stepped in we knew it was the wrong place. What we though about it The Very Good None The Good Only one guy ( we did not get his name but he wears glasses and helped us to rent a motorbike) He was willing to help because the rest of the reception had no intention to help The Ok None The Bad 1. The girls at the reception 2. The room 3. The location. Totally isolated of everything 4. The noise. They were building a extension next to the hotel or a different hotel. 5. Surrounding landscape. C’mon guys have some shade. 6. Private beach! C’mon that is a 30 feet long artificial beach. I would never stay again ever. In fact we left the place even though the room was paid. We went to Fisherman Resort and we love it. Pick the garden suite though Photos from Agoda are deciving …
Stayed here for 4 days midweek , virtually had the hotel to myself as this seems to be a weekend retreat for the Bangkok set, They are currently building a new hotel next door which will ready early next year & will double the room size to around 160 rooms. With this in mind they have taken on a brilliant new chef from the 5 star Avani in Chang Mai, it is my opinion he is one of the best chefs in Thailand & he will make a huge difference to the quality of food here, his name is Nan & he looked after me throughout my stay with mouth watering dishes. This is a beachside location a bit remote but just right for a short relaxing stay.
This modest hotel in Thai regional area met our expectations - it’s a resort hotel on the beach, nice reception area with wicker chairs and view of garden, has a swimming pool. Basic decor in rooms, good size bathroom, excellent hot shower. Bed very firm, air cond good so slept well, very helpful service. If disabled request a room on ground floor as they don’t have a lift. If on second floor staff will carry bags up stairs. Table and tv and tea making facility. Restaurant food good quality, well presented, a la carte breakfast options limited but both western and Thai options tasty
This hotel is compact and convenience. Swimming pool is in the heart of the area. Nice photo shots can be take around the swimming pool and the beach. However, the beach is quite short. I did not see anyone swim around. Local food shop for souvenir is opposite the hotel. Car park is limit. Food is fine, not good but not bad. People can reach the rooms easy. Quality of bed is okay. Size of bathroom is okay.
We visited Laem Pak Bia in December 2017. Spent four nights at the I Tara Resort & Spa. Ours was a bird watching trip. We had a great stay at the resort. The room was clean and simple. We had a room with a nice view overlooking the sea. No frills and nothing fancy. The staff was friendly and helped arrange transport to and from the birding sites. If you are looking for a private taxi to the birding sites, I would strongly recommend Mr Nut. He can be reached at +66 853730375. He speaks good English and knows how to engage you in a conversation. He is reliable, punctual and a safe, defensive driver. We really liked his service and engaged him for the ride from the resort to Bangkok airport.
chose this Hotel, as it was not too far a drive from Bangkok, and the previous reviews were OK. so here are my thoughts: Positives: Clean spacious rooms, and large bathroom Food was very good and tasty I thought breakfast was good pool and surrounding area very clean easy access to small beach area Not too far from public beach area and few beach restaurants Negative: The beach is not really for kids or able to sit on a little too much litter for my liking, wouldnt take one of the staff more than 5 mins just to wander down in the morning and remove the washed up bottles and plastic bags... make it look cleaner we will come back to this resort though
We have meeting conference many times here. It takes 2 hours drive from Bangkok. The hotel is not so big but it is lovely. There are room type and bungalows which very close to the sea. The room is clean and modernly equipped. All rooms have sea view. The foods here are quite spicy but delicious. I recommend improvement of the fitness room. By the way, the mosquitoes are common here and in this nearby area.
I've stayed at this place several times before. The rooms are great. Comfortable, clean, spacious and with a sea view. A queen-sized bed and a hot shower add to the comfort and the kettle with tea and coffee are the icing on the cake. There's no doubt about it, the hotel and the location are brilliant if you just want a quiet place on the beach, or are birding. There is nothing else around, town-wise, except Phetchaburi which is a 40 minute drive or so, and Cha-Am a long way south. The gardens and pool area are well kept and very clean. The staff are very well trained, polite and courteous and the reception staff speak English. Check-in is always easy and quick and there is a friendly atmosphere. Those are the positives. The less than positive is the food. Breakfast is okay. There's a range of cereals and eggs, with tea and coffee and toast etc, fruit, and a choice of other tastes from a menu. The evening meals are less appealing. The menu is limited and the portions small. Some were nice, but some were not very. An omelette one night was dripping with grease which gave me a bad stomach that night. However, for the five days we stayed, it was manageable. Mosquitos are also a problem in the hotel and the restaurant and rooms do have some which have excellent radar and home in on humans as soon as they appear. I carried an electric anti-mosquito tennis racket and it helped a great deal. This place is a good hotel to stay at, no question about that. It would be a great hotel if they got a better chef and a wider range of food on the menu and got rid of the mosquitos once and for all. I keep mentioning both, but nothing improves. A pity. Would I recommend it? Certainly. The last points are minor when compared against the location and the friendly staff.…
I Tara resort is a great sea view / Beach location called “Laem Pak Bia Beach (First Sand Beach)” On Phetchaburi province that’s not too far from Bangkok. This resort is very clean and quite you can feel peace, by clean beach view with nice windy and wave sound. A swimming pool that when you swim you can see a beach which is very relaxation. Resort have a restaurant with a good value and good taste! I had order “Kao Kra pow Moo” Mince pork with thai basil ; one of my favorite thai food. This dish is super tasty not spicy but flavor is rich good to have with Thai rice I love this menu. Another dish I order “Phad thai Goong sod” Chantaburi noodles stir fry with Thai sauce and shrimps. Surprisingly, it is super tasty omg! So yummy! End up with my dinner with “Pork Porridge” this on is good either, Pork is ferment with thai herbs so its tasty and the soup is mellow top up with fry garlic thai style, YUM! The thing I really love is when you go for vacation, you don’t need to go out many place to find something to eat. If you get a good place and value price of restaurant not too expensive, with a nice view & friendly staff. You can really relax your own vacation day! Breakfast at I TARA is super worthy, in the morning you can go to the restaurant staff will give you a menu shortlist that you can order many kind of food with UNLIMITED until you full! Moreover, every menu they made it warm and new Grilled ham cheese sandwhich serve with salad. Pork fried rice very tasty! Full flavor and very huge dish! (You can choose a choice of Chicken fried rice too) Pork Porridge Pork is ferment with thai herbs so its tasty and the soup is mellow top up with fry garlic thai style as I mention up there. Bedroom was ok, clean bed is soft/ air-conditioned is cool / frees still water / hairdryer is available. Bathroom has shampoo / soap / no toothbrush and toothpaste. Ps. Everyroom have a terrace…
Nice and clean resort, with easy access to the beach. A very affordable 4 star resort located in a quite area not far from Bangkok. Rooms are very large and comfortable with full amenities. In my opinion Hotel needs to improve the service especially for foreigner customer,, it should be better add some western food at buffet breakfast,
