The hotel was recently opened (in January) and construction work is still going on. The main block was ready but access to the hotel rooms was a bit complicated since there was not elevator connecting reception to the rooms. They supplied transportation service with small vehicles like golf cars up to the first elevator. The cars are not going up when it is raining because of the hill is quite steep and the road is very slippery. You have to climb up on foot what is quite a good exercise. During our stay they started to bild a small stairway uphill what helps a lot. Anyway currently you should take this into account if you have mobility problems.
We had to wait our room until 18:30 pm when we arrived because of late check-out of the prevoius guest. We were offered the other rooms at lower levels but there was no view from the window. We stayed at garden view room on 4th floor. Would recommend garden view rooms starting from the 3rd floor because at lower floors you have a look against the brick wall from the balcony. It is nice to see the jungle from the window but still the other side with sea view would be better choice with a great view to the city and the sea.
Room itself was nice and modern. The walls are thin, so you can hear neighbours snoring. Bathroom was nice with both shower and bathtub. They have very lovely pool area with great view over the Patong beach. Breakfast was exellent and service at the restaurant was good as well although we were the only guests there in the evening. The staff is still learning and try their best which is simply lovely.
The beach is 10 minutes walk from the hotel. It takes approximately 25 to 30 minutes to walk to Jungceylon shopping center, but they offer transport service 3 times a day there (10 am, 15 pm and 17 pm). This is one way trip, currently not driving you back to the hotel.
Suggest to stay there until they have discounts.
