PPLand is perfect for families with young children and couples that want to get away from it all and singles that want to be hermits!
When I finally start building on my land... I sure hope it looks something like PPLand! Absolutely stunning property. We stayed for a short 3 days but definitely left wanting more! If we're ever in Thailand during the cooler high season we would love to get away from it all at PPLand for weeks and weeks!
Immaculate bungalows. Best bungalow construction we've seen all over Thailand. Pads on beds to make them comfortable. Pristine bathrooms with outdoor feel. Hammock on every bungalow deck is a fabulous addition. Decor inside bungalows is lovely. Community space/dining area is visually pleasing. Pool is salt water and super clean. Massages onsite are fabulous. Resort location is close to the pier and close enough to walk to the other beaches (everything is close if you hire a motorbike). Fabulous price for this level of quality and attention to detail. Also the pool is stellar and the kids absolutely loved it.
All over the world, wherever it is hot, you have two options: fan or a/c. This is standard across the board. At PP Land, you have neither. Although you are coastal, at night there is no wind. So sleeping can be uncomfortable. We loved the place and would've stayed for 2 or 3 weeks, but with no wind, no fan and the days getting hotter and hotter, we just couldn't do it and decided to leave.
Plugs are only available during the day. Why this is bad? If you want to use your camera during the day, you cannot charge the battery at night. Another thing is that the plugs are only available from around 930am and get turned off at 7pm. So if you are gone all day you must come back early if you need something charged for the following day.
The food is great. Actually it's fantastic. The only problem is the ordering. There's not a regular wait staff so it can be quite awkward at times to ask someone to make you something. They have a system where you write what you want in a ledger book, but the book is behind their counter, so you must ask for the book. If you know what you want you quickly write it down but by this time the person that handed you the book is already gone. So you must find and tell them what you wrote. We stayed at another resort on this island, their system was simple. A person was always near the counter, they have pads of paper, you write what you want then write your room number on the paper, then take a seat. This sounds similar, but at the other resort there is no awkwardness, all the staff understand that if you're approaching the counter, you want something. At PP Land, they walk right past you even though you've just walked into the community room. I've stayed in family run guesthouses where you feel welcome in their "home," but PP Land makes you feel a little like you're putting them out.
Final bad mark, the dining room is set up for couples. 99% of the tables are set up for just two people. This also makes for an anti-social environment.
The kitchen closes around 10pm.
