We stayed one week on this hotel, in April/May 2011.
The hotel belongs to Relais & Châteaux and it really deserves that.
It's a boutique hotel with a lot of details you can enjoy with your senses.
All the rooms are very well decorated and our, in particular, had a great sea view.
The hotel grounds are beautiful and well mantained.
The swimming pool is diferent from the normal, since the material in which it is made is a noble one. Pure luxury! Besides, the swimming pool has a wonderful sea view, also.
The restaurant is top! Beach front, tranquil, exquisite and delicious food... so romantic if you have dinner here!!! It seems like you are being bless by the stars!!!
The breakfast is a la cart and it's really a finding. Everything is fresh, tasty and refined.
All the staff (specially restaurant's staff) is very kind, helpful and nice. They provide all that you can need and all the concierge service you may request.
The hotel is street faced, in a not very beautiful area, but, inside of it, you don't notice this fact.
The beach, itself, isn't good. It has quicksand and the water is not clear. We stayed the most of the time on the swimming-pool and went several times to the hotel's sister resort - Peace Resort, on Mae Nam Beach. The hotel provides free shuttle bus service to Peace Resort and to Fisherman's village. But we rent a motorbike, in the hotel's front and go riding. It's safe and more funny!
The only thing we didn't like was that the room was quite small and the air conditioning didn't work properly in order to refresh the space. Besides that, the air con was right in the front of the bed, which was harmful to our health. At night, the room is too hot and become unbearable to be there without air conditioning. And if you turn the air conditioning, you'll get frozen as the air con is right on top of you...
The hotel management MUST improve this!
