This hotel is located within a row of buildings running east to west so despite the description you are unlikely to see an impressive sunset set from your hotel room however mix a quick Daiquiri and take the lift to the rooftop pool with it’s spectacular views in every direction and you won’t miss a thing!
The north-side hotel apartments face the rear of another hotel so not much to look at there from your balcony. We asked for an upgrade to an apartment with a bigger balcony which we got and also as a bonus it was on the south-side of the hotel. The view was an expanse of greenery in front, tree clad hills to the left and ocean breakers to the right. The staff call this the “garden view” but I would call it jungle view myself.
We were really pleased with the upgrade and surprised that we were not asked to pay any surcharge for it.
The hotel was built in 2009 so both apartments that we experienced were almost antiseptically clean and fresh. Delightful bathroom. Modern air conditioners in living and sleeping areas, big wide screen TV, (however limited to only 10 channels when we were there and only 1 of these English speaking).
The buffet breakfast, if not included, is 200 baht per person and is well worth it. Both European and Asian features on the buffet which changes daily. There 3 Internet connected laptops set up in the guest area for guest use free of charge.
The reception staff are super-friendly and always helpful.
It’s less than 100 metres from the hotel to the sea and it’s a beautiful beach.
One of our best ever hotel stays. We’ll be back there.
