This resort has a fantastic location, incredibly well appointed rooms and extremely friendly and efficient staff - BUT
The food is poor- overpriced and poor quality of ingredients. The coffee is for a motel bedside and is frankly undrinkable by anyone with a discerning palate.
Alternatively meals can be taken at a variety of local restaurants in the local village, 5 mins walk away, for a fifth of the price and superior quality.
Disgracefully, the management of Sivalai have posted a misleading, unsubstantiated and frankly libelous warning about food poisoning at village restaurants.- SMAME ON YOU SIVALAI!
Whilst iternet access is available sitting in reception it is not available in rooms. Thus a stay of longer than 24 hours becomes problematic with no communication and only 5 channels of Thai language terrestrial TV.
It is also worth noting that the hotel do not mention the incredibly strong tidal currents on the north side beach - strong swimmers struggle to make headway - a child would soon be long gone out to sea!!!
Oh and don't forget the 20% service add- on for everything!
There is no beach side bar - a shame in such a great location. And the cocktails from the restaurant are substandard. However there is a lovely cocktail bar in the village (Farm Ville) in a garden with great mood lighting and a true pro mixing the drinks.
Perhaps it is the quality and taste of the clientele who are happy to put up with such disappointments which allows Sivalai to prosper?- We didn't stay long enough to find out!
