We stayed at this boutique hotel for one week and we found it very clean and comfortable. Since the hotel is relatively new the towels and bed linen were luxurious and the fittings and fixtures were of good quality. We made good use of the free transport to the beach although it is not too far to walk if it is not too hot. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby with a good choice of food. The staff at the hotel were efficient and pleasant and those on the front desk and tour desk were most helpful. The owner Tony was always on hand and made us feel most welcome. All in all a good experience.

Room Tip: third floor pool facing with balcony a good choice.

We stayed in Monochrome Resort for a week after Christmas and were very satisfied. The hotel looked nice and new, it still needs some improvements, especially to make the hotel more cosy and lively. The rooms were spacious and clean all the time and staff was nice and very friendly. There is also a very good italian restaurant which belongs to the hotel, so once you get tired of thai food it is worth to try it out. The hotel also provides transfers to the beach and other attractions in the area.

There were also negatives such as the selection of meals at the breakfast bar could have been wider and the pool had quite a cold water.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone who does not need a luxury 5 star hotel but prefers modern and clean accomodation.

Excellent rooms and amneties, very modern.
Bed and linen were the most comfortable in the world.
Attentive manager and staff.
Amazing Italian restaurant (Anici) with superb Italian products and a real Italian chef!

Despite not being on the beach, the hotel's electric car can take you to the public side of the beach (after all the hotels, few minutes away by car) which was nicely remote, nice and wild (great surprise!!), away from the buzz, no long tail boats around and with just a small a hut bar/restaurant and massage girls. Bliss!!

We had booked another hotel but were transferred here due to a bathroom problem - and we loved it. The room was beautiful, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the staff was really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it!

Booked via Agoda and got a great price.We spent 3 days in this exceptional resort.After having booked, we had heard it was a place for gay men and judging by the decor it is possibly true. But most of the guests were heterosexual couples.
The room was spacious, the bed supercomfortable with a large shower and bathroom. Balcony overlooking the pool -as is the case with all rooms.
The staff are amazing- always smiling and eager to help.
The beach is about a ten minute walk but they have a golf cart like shuttle all day and night.
Still needs a few final touches such as floor tiling outside but this is a real slick place.

Room Tip: all rooms are amazing- around the pool some rooms have a private "jacuzzi"

We were impressed with the service from checking-in to checking-out time. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. It was really nice feeling seeing the hotel owner was always around to ensure the excellent service. The pool bar was awesome. We love the brand new look of the hotel.
The Italian restaurant was the best Italian food we ever had with the Italian chef. Nice shuttle service to and from beach whenever we wanted.
Highly recommend this hotel. Great experience!!
