We stayed here for the second leg of our honeymoon. Unfortunately we had the first leg at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok, so Bo Phut had a lot to compare too...
We think its a very nice place, but I would definitely class it on the smaller, quieter, boutique side. So if you are looking for huge and fancy and lots of activity, dont stay here. If you are happy with a quite and intimate stay - then its just fine. The place is lovely and the staff are great. My husband STILL talks about the delicious welcome drink we were offered on arrival.
Pool is nice, although a bit small. Beach is ok...I think there are nicer ones on the island though. It was nice to be able to walk down the beach to the small town nearby for dinner - which we did almost every night.
We also went next door to the Peace resort a lot for lunch, as its WAY cheaper and just as good in my opinion. Peace resort also has a cheaper spa, although its not air conditioned. Peace resort also has a beach hut where you can get a full body massage for peanuts - sadly we discovered this on our last day. Otherwise I would have been over there like EVERY day.
Now about that air conditioning. We went in June and it was MEGA hot and humid. One day it was so hot and humid that we didnt even feel like we could leave our rooms. The rooms and the business centre and the spa are the only places in the resort that have air conditioning, so you can see how you can feel a bit trapped if this is something that is going to affect you.
But thats pretty typical of all the resorts on the island, so not a criticism of this hotel.
We did enjoy our stay, although got a bit bored by the mellow and quiet by the end of the week. City people, what can I say?
But if you are looking for peace and quiet, a high standard of service, and a beautiful little boutique resort - yes I would recommend it.
