My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks in February 2013. This place was simply lovely.
We arrived quite late in the evening but check in was a breeze. Our room was at the very top so you definitely needed a golf cart to whisk you up there - but there always seemed plenty of these around so it never felt like an inconvenience.
Our room was large, had a great sea view and really comfortable. Bed was large and comfy and the room was equipped with all mod cons. The TV/PC system was fantastic. The library of films and shows was extensive. We also really appreciated the free Wifi.
Breakfasts were fabulous! So much choice on offer, I'm not surprised that I gained weight on this trip. Lots of fruit, cereals, breads, pastries as well as different cooked breakfast options. Definitely a highlight.
The pool area was beautiful. Although the sun loungers were really funky, some had seen better days and there just wasn't enough room for everyone. We were lucky to get beds every day but we are early risers so we didn't struggle. However late sleepers did struggle and we did see a couple of heated exchanges between people about bed hogging.
The bar was great. The cocktails were delicious - my favourite being the porn star martini which was just the best!
We only ate at the hotel a couple of times. Food was good but we preferred venturing out and trying new things. Shuttle buses to Fisherman's Village and Chaweng Beach were very convenient.
All in all this was one of the best value for money trips I have ever taken. The hotel had a cool, laid back boutique vibe which we really liked. What really made it special was the staff who were attentive to your needs and really made you feel welcomed. I would definitely come back!!
