As the resort name suggests our stay was beyond expectations.
We stayed from the 3 May for 8 nights, and as per previous reviewers, we used a voucher and stayed in a Palm Villa Premier room near the pool in 1306 (great position). The room was fantastic and had everything we needed including the small things like umbrellas, a torch, slippers, thongs, daily water and fruit platters to name but a few. We didn't spend much time in the room as the resort had plenty of activities. We used the exceptional gym (great quality equipment), Day Spa for massages (beautiful rooms and staff), stand up paddles boards and kayaks (extra charge), convenience store and of course, the fantastic pool and beach area. The pool has a number of different areas, some with spas and the fact it is an Adult Only resort, contributed to the relaxed environment. There was never a problem getting loungers and umbrellas (even though the resort was supposedly at 90%).
What made this resort, was it's position in a quite area of Khaolak, the unbelievably friendly staff, and the pristine grounds, pool and building areas. The breakfast spread and service was the best we have experienced. The Beach bar and Pool bar areas were great (including the daily happy hour), especially having Eddie and Alma around, and all the other staff. We also enjoyed our discussions with Robert and Danielle (Guest Ambassador).
The restaurants down the beach, such as Ma Ma's and Elicious were great as an alternative to the resort, and if anything, add to the overall resort experience. The pineapple fried rice at Ma Ma's was a winner. I would say that over half of these restaurants were still open when we left on the 11th May. We also walked to a local waterfall (about 6km return), which was great to get away and see the local life, especially how they extract rubber juice.
So thank you to Robert and all his staff for a wonderful and relaxed holiday. We look forward to returning again.
