Rooms are tiny.. Just big enough to fit a King size bed and desk. Was a bit of an odour from bathroom also.
Hotel had spent alot of money on landscaping which is nice but the rooms were a disappointment (we had a poolside room).
The hotel is going for a shangrila type wooden and teak tribal look but they don't pull it off in the rooms.
Hotel is 10 mins walk from kata beach but pool side is better. Has a small pool bar where you can drink whilst still in water and avoid the beach lounge fee.
Breakfast was ok but dinner was good if a little expensive by thai standards, drinks are also expensive and near Western standards. Wait staff were slow and inattentive e.g. We had 3 empty plates on our table for 15 mins during breakfast before they were cleared - there were only 3 other people in restaurant.
Bottom line was that our stay was Ok but we won't be back. If a hotel is going to charge 4-5 star prices then I expect 4-5 star service and amenities. Probably closer to a 3-4 star experience for us.
