We have just had 3 nights here in one of the silksand rooms. We asked for a twin room on the ground floor near the pool and got it (room103). We found the ground floor worked really well as we could have easy access in and out of our room when we were at the pool. We booked direct with them on the Internet and the rate was 10,500 baht inc breakfast and taxes for the 3 nights (on an early bird promotion). Email communication was quick and helpful and they contacted us 10 days before arrival as arranged to make payment on my credit card.
The grounds around the place are immaculate and really add to the ambience of the place and allow you to relax and really enjoy being here. I was here with my 15 year old son and we both loved the main pool. The pool was a good size, a nice temperature and plenty of comfortable furniture. Large Towels are readily available and you can order food and drinks as well which we did one lunch time. We went over the the beachside to have a look but spent all our time at the main pool as we loved the setting at this one(very lush and tropical). As a previous reviewer said it would be good if the pool was open until 9pm rather than 6.30pm as we often felt like a swim when we got back from dinner.
Breakfast was good and meant we didn't really need much lunch. A typical meal during the day was between 200 and 300 baht and both Thai and western was available. The food we ordered was excellent.
The room was good. Very clean and roomy enough for 2 and cleaned daily. We got bottled water twice a day and the cleaning staff called in early evening as well.Our shower was ok, a bit of a fluctuation from hot and cold but not as bad as some reviewers must have experienced. The beds were also pretty good. The shower and toilet are in a separate room but the basin is in the main bedroom separated by a curtain(this was no problem for us).
We used the tuk tuk service each day which runs between 11am and 9pm on the hour and they dropped us off wherever we wanted to go and we walked back which usually only took 10 to 15mins. This works well as we didn't have to worry about finding a particular restaurent we wanted to try and the driving staff were lovely.
For a treat we did the Thai cooking experience. 1500 baht per person and really enjoyed it. At 11am the executive chef Top met us and we went by tuk tuk to the local market and he explained all about the various ingredients and where he buys the food each morning at 5am. Then we were picked up by tuk tuk (cold water and towels ready for us) and back to the restaurent where we cooked 3 dishes with him and then had them for lunch. A really good experience and we learnt a lot, thank you Top!
Location is great, just out of the hussle but close to it all. A 7/11 is one block away.
Overall the staff are fabulous and the atmosphere really is one of a boutique resort. We think this is a very special place and highly recommend it. We also enjoyed talking to some nice people from around the world by the pool. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so good. We can't wait to come back again.
