Just returned from a great stay at the aquamarine. The resort is traditional thai design and gives you a wonderful feel of thailand. My room ( oceanview) consisted of twin beds on a raised wooden floor. Decor again is traditional and tasteful, although the dark wood panelling on walls and floor means that the room is dark and lights needed even during day time. Mattress/pillows firm which is not uncommon in asia, however reception did offer to try and soften with blankets on check in. ( not needed). Breakfast was busy but then people seemed to disappear, so that you always felt like you had peace and tranquility. Breakfast had great selection, pancakes, eggs, pastries and diff types of bread, fresh fruit being cut in front of you, cereals, asian and western dishes.The setting for breakfast is almost devine, with views if pool and ocean.
Pools there are three and all lovely, on a couple of occasions I had the pool to myself. Massages in the lotus spa, within the resort also well recommended, ( they had a two for one offer but happy to let me attend for massage on two consequtive days).
The resort is perched on the side of a hill and a do able walk 15-20 min to main beach and village. there is also free shuttle bus from resort to patong or beach.
Staff were all so polite and friendly.
Only downside was that it seemed to be all couples or groups and I was the only solo traveller, so felt that I looked a little out of place.On one evening happy hour was just me at the bar!
Also the mini mart in the hotel is pricey.
All in all though, it was a great place to relax,swim, read and recharge the batteries. ( which is what i wanted).
Thank you to Philip and all the staff for a lovely stay :)
