Visited this hotel the first time on a company sponsored meeting. I was overwhelmed at the sheer beauty of the property upon arrival. The check-in was a bit tedious due to the number of our party arriving at the same time, but this was quickly forgotten due to the hospitality of the staff and the cordial greeting.
My room was awesome, spacious, with wonderful view. Large bathroom with strong and hot shower (a must for me) with plenty of closet space. Bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning was perfect.
As mentioned, the facility is exceptional and the grounds are second to non as far as landscaping and overall beauty goes. Plenty of paths and walkways which are well marked. The rice paddy in the idle of the place near the bungalows was a nice change.
The fitness centre is adequate, could use more weights (if you are a serious weight lifter) but it works and you can get what you need done with a little effort.
The food was as good as I have eaten at any hotel in Asia. Thai dishes were superb an the western food was really nice. Enjoyed the variety at breakfast. The bar was well stocked and the staff there was genuinely cordial and funny. also enjoyed the pool bar as well (check out the pool in the early morning...quite quiet and refreshing, well maintained.
Tours arranged by the hotel were exceptional, visited the elephant sanctuary and a local traditional village in the area.
I am looking forward to a visit with my wife in the near future. this hotel is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.
