The place is by a very good beach with deep water. Good for swimming.
The room was just as advertised and very comfortable and clean. Despite being furthest away from the beach I loved the pleasant walk each morning through a well tended and decorated garden and various birds singing.
I like the beach restaurant too with good service. Now the pool is very very small but to be honest the sea is so good that I don't think anyone other than children would want to use it.
Here are a few ideas to make the place so much better.
- It would be great to add some ashtrays near the beach beds. And put some sort of a sign for people not to throw trash on the sand (since there is a bin available for that). People, especially when on holiday need to be reminded of such civil requirements.
- Replace the wardrobes at the cheap rooms (the one I have stayed smelled of mould so much that I just kept its door shut throughout my stay. It may just as well be not there. Maybe some shelves should be put up there or something instead.
- The tap on the sink somehow rotated on its own but since it did the job, I didn't feel the need to request repairs.
The place is not at a lively area but there are some good restaurants nearby and if someone would like to socialise, the crowds in Lamai are just 10 minutes away on foot (or a motor taxi can take you there).
The staff was helpful but there is free wifi so you don't much need concierge service.
If I ever visit Koh Samui again, I'd like to stay in this hotel. There isn't false advertising and it is definitely good value for money.
