We booked 6 "beachfront" nights here because the NTBR1 wasn't available. After taking a walk up the beach to the ntbr1 ; we were very happy with our choice. The #2 has a better beach, better lounging area (more shade trees), is a smaller resort , & has an overall more relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely return there.
The lock on our door was a 2 man challenge until we figured it out. Our main complaint was we only received one metal key+card & the card is used to turn the lights on + off. So at night time, to lock your door from the inside , you have to remove the key card to use the metal key in the lock. So have a flashlight handy. Solutions would be to separate the metal key & power card so bring an extra key chain for the metal key OR use a spare 'credit' card for the power slot.
Staff is very friendly; English limited.
Golf cart will take you to grocery store on main street. Just request at front desk when you want to go, no set time schedule. ATMs available there.
Resort is at end of paved road. If you continue along on gravel section ( duck under a bamboo gate) you will also arrive at main street , but at the other end of block ( lots of stores) from the grocery store . So a circular route. We took the hotel's cart to the store; walked south along main street stores, then turned right onto 'red' gravel road (< 5 min walk) to hotel & vice versa.
Hotel pickup service to & fro the Phuket airport is excellent. Their van is deluxe.
Restaurant food was good. Had all breakfasts & a couple dinners there. Pina coladas served in coconut shells... yummy !! And they deliver to your bungalow.
