There is no doubt, that when Andaman Princess opened is was supposed to be the flagship of koh Koh Khao. Probably the Tsunami in 2004/2005 sat the hotel back enormously. And the fact is that is has never recovered ! The hotel is worn and all over you see the signs of lack of money. From the broken tiles in the pool, to the fountains without water. From the lack of pool towels to the shappy looking pool bar. From the dirty beach area to the sad empty reception area. It’s actually very sad! We had a feeling of visiting a hotel in the end of a season, right before closing down, even though we were there in the absolute highseason.
We spend 4 nights from jan 05.2012 to jan 09 2012 and paid no less that 8200 bath pr. night for a beach villa, and that’s a lot of money and even though the villa was nice, you expect the surroundings to be of a certain standard – it is not ! As I wrote, the beach bar is shappy looking and really does not give you the feeling of wanting to eat there. The same applies for the restaurant. Therefore our impression was, that the only ones who ate there, were costumers on half board. The hotel seemed abandoned at night time. I think everyone fled down to the little harbour area. The spa I will not even mention, expensive and not good ,employing the only unfriendly Thais I’ve have ever meet!
Koh Koh Khao is a lovely island, as Thailand was 40 years ago! Very quiet a night time with wonderful beachlife at day time. And we do recommend the Island and even wants to go back, but not back to Andaman Princess . We checked out some of the other hotels and no doubt that next time we will stay at the C&N Beach Resort, cool, relaxed and upbeat !
