Ao Nang was a bit lively & noisy for us in general so the Tipa was a delightfully peaceful & verdant haven. Loved the bungalow - very spacious log cabin with balcony tho would recommend the rooms on stilts,if your budget allows this, which looked gorgeous. Location of bungalows only a problem if you are elderly, disabled or extremely unfit!
Bit of a mixed experience with staff. Firstly, I emailed to request taxi pick up from airport - this did not happen & although it was easy ( & cheaper at 600 baht) to get one directly from airport myself, there was no apology whatsoever when I brought this up later with the receptionist. She did not bat an eyelid in fact! We arrived at 9am & were told we had to wait til 2pm to access the room. I knew this was a possibility when I received my details but thought that maybe they might be more accommodating after a 13 hour flight but obviously not. On another occasion one of the receptionists was rather rude & dismissive when we asked for help contacting a local company regarding a trip when the car didn't show up. Ok, maybe this wasn't a trip through the Tipa but she certainly could have been a bit more pleasant & helpful. On the plus side, the restaurant staff were warm & polite (especially Air) & when we had a problem with the safety deposit box, someone came pretty much straight away to resolve the issue.
Now on to the breakfast. Before the holiday I had read negative reviews regarding this but I was extremely pleasantly surprised. I loved the yogurt, muesli, tasty pastries & delicious omelettes cooked in front of you. Admittedly, if you are a meat eater, the tinned cocktail sausages, greasy bacon & very weird triangles of processed ham kept in boiling water are not appealing but personally I looked forward to breakfast each day & left stuffed after being a bit piggy!
So on the whole, very happy with our Tipa experience!
PS really helpful having a well stocked supermarket just outside the entrance.
