My wife and I stayed at Indigo Pearl from 23-26 Aug 08. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and I would definitely recommend couples and those searching for peace and quiet to go there. We booked them from Asiarooms.com
Had wonderful service all round from housekeepers to gym staff to waitresses, which made a huge difference.
We stayed at the Pearl Room. The bed was large and very comfortable. There was a holding area to dump all your clothes and stuff so that the main area would be free of clutter. Rain shower was great. Fragrance was also burnt in the room, and I was a sucker for this.
There were a couple of shortcomings: bathtub was located at the balcony in sight of everyone, so we did not use it. TV was mounted near the ceiling, so not very comfortable height-wise. Too much useless space at the bathroom, would prefer more room in the main area. Curtains were hard to pull.
Facilities & Spa
Gym had modern functioning equipment and smells clean and airy. The treadmill were better than those at my office :) A small TV was provided for each treadmill. There were table tennis and tennis facilities as well.
Tennis court was in bad condition though. The rackets there were just as bad.
We tried the spa which was up to par with other 4-star establishments we had been to. Expect to pay though. Approx 3000-4500 baht per person.
This is where Indigo Pearl shines. 2 of its 3 restaurants, Black Ginger and Rivet, had wonderful evening ambience. Very romantic atmosphere and wonderful staff. Food quality wise, Black Ginger serves Thai (good) while Rivet is sort of a steakhouse (average to above-average?). Be prepared to pay at Rivet though, it's as expensive as eating at a prime steakhouse in Singapore (S$50 upwards).
Head out to the beach (2 min walk), turn right to this small beachfront restaurant called Marina Seafood Restaurant. Ladies there very welcoming and whips up tasty, authentic treats. Cheaply. We had our lunch there everyday.
