I stayed at the hotel with a friend in a twin room. We arrived a bit early for the check in. With multiple flights from Madagascar, I think they saw how tired we were, and did everything in their power to get us into a room before check in was available. The girls at the front were amazing. With “jet-lag” screaming from our eyes, we were helped to our room. We didn’t know whether to lie down next to the towel dog and curl into a long sleep with the aircon on- or to get the girls to organise a massage for us.
We picked the massage and pedicure- will be doing a separate review on Kuchorn.
The hotel offers a little motor-bike-bus thing that drops you off to a select few hot spots. This was great and we used this a couple of times.
Yes- there was some noise from some drunken singing up at a bar. But really- it is a holiday destination and not a country retreat. I suggest having a few drinks up at the pool, or out on the town. And if you really want- bring some ear plugs. I didn’t, and yes my sleep pattern was a little worse for wear due to Madagascar Air (Air potato!). But I slept fine.
My only problem with the hotel was the shiny slippery concrete around the pool access. Totally sober- I slipped down the wet stairs. A huge chunk cam off my leg and a few cuts and scrapes and some very huge bruises! The staff were great and offered to get me some medical attention. But as this was our last night (and working in the health industry in Aus), I chose to suck-it-up and pay for a taxi and then got medical assistance via a trendy wheelchair (wheel chair company is called… Karma!) .
I recommended to the manager that they would do something about this access to the pool. As I am sure that I will not be the last person to slip down those stairs.
I highly recommend this hotel, for cleanliness, great access to all areas of Phuket, and also for all of their awesome staff.
