Firstly this place looks stunning and I cannot comment on the resort itself as we didn't stay there.

We did however come to eat at the restaurant.

I feel the need to comment as it was a little cheeky... We were offered water at the beginning of our meal- we later found out this cost us 250 baht- we were not shown a menu at this point and it would have been nice to have been told the price before hand!

Now we eat at at expensive restaurants frequently and have no qualms paying for good food, but I ordered the Thai green curry. My husband enjoyed his tiger prawn dish but my dish had hardly any meat in it, some of it gristly...

We had 2 cocktails, 2 mains and our expensive bottle of water. It cost us 2000 baht... That is £40 and very expensive for what we got.

The service was good once they eventually gave us a menu- we had to wait over 10 minutes, the band playing were fantastic... but be warned this is a very pricey restaurant compared to other restaurants on the beach.

Dear Laura,
Some positive points about our hotel which I was happy to hear about, it truly is paradise and our surroundings are wonderful, I am sorry to hear there were some aspects of your dinner experience that was not up to your expectation, our service standard is to always ask if the guests prefer sparkling or still water, I will make a note to our restaurant manger to retrain in our water service.
We currently run a happy hour which gives you "buy1 get 1 free", our cocktails are between 220THB and 320THB, we only use premium pouring brands which is our brand standard within all our hotels so you will be guaranteed a quality product, not a local made or copy liquor.
I do hope you come back to our Island soon, I would like to apologize in person for our shortfalls and I would also prepare and cook your dinner.

Culinary regards
Chef Don
