We paid a premium to have return transfer from Bangkok. The hotel was good to accommodate my request to pick us up from the central Bangkok CBD instead of the airport.
However the drive on the way to the resort never followed any traffic rules with his constant speeding and overtaking along the journey. We almost couldn't arrive in the hotel in one piece! It certainly didn't make the start of the holiday an enjoyable one for us.
On the way back the driver was first class.
I requested via email for some activities and details on the SPA packages, etc before arrival, but until we checked out the information was never provided.
There's no TV in the room so you get time to reflect on things, the iPod preloaded with songs makes the experience very relaxing.
The pool is on the small side but is on the first floor facing the beach, Dining there at night is a very romantic experience.
The double bed is somewhat uncomfortable with an uneven gap in the middle between the 2 combined metress.
The Pranburi beach is an absolute gem and this won't be the only visit, but we are keen to try the nearby resorts next time to compare the experience.
