THE BUILDING AND GARDEN LOOKS LOVELY however service is non existant. Miles out of town , only one shuttle a day, worst breakfast ever in Asia, no buffet, absolutely tastless so called Moroccan breakfast with no flavouring at all unless you want to put heinz chili sauce on it.Plastic jam, cardboard croissants and canned music. The internet took 5 hours to connect, had to ask 3 times for room to be cleaned, water in pool was very cloudy but told due to heavy rain and was ok to swim in. HUGE TV but no channels because of a coup so nt much use. No nearby facilities shops or visible places to eat found on our short stroll .Decor is quite ok and bed is comfortable, good bathroom, nice to have a bath for a change. ITS NOT CHEAP and feels abandoned, only appeared to be one other guest at breakfast...we had thought this would be a bit of luxury...only thing we enjoyed was a complimentary thai massage when we arrived. It is quiet and view onto river is pleasant enough...can see it has potential if it had guests,, was better managed and got a chef and more sevice and definely more shuttle option offered being so far out of town.
