We arrived at Sarikantang in pretty bad weather, but the location...right on the beach, lifted our moods right away. The beach is one of the best I've seen in Thailand! Location is great - only 10 minutes walk over a small hill and then we were at Had Rin.
We went to the Full Moon party, and that's when the issues related to the resort started. The resort encorage you to ensure you have 'special' sheets to cover bed linen if you cover yourself with floresent paint - which we did. And we had a shower when we came back from the full moon party, so we were 100% sure that we didn't cover any of our bed linen in paint. In spite of this, they still wanted to charge us for towels, pillow covers, sheets, etc. on the day of departure - even insisted that the housekeeping had found paint on one of the pillows days before we even bought the paint. This was a big let down on an otherwise brilliant stay at the Sarikantang, as we felt they wanted to squeeze a few more Bahts out of us before leaving. We were in a hurry to catch the ferry back to Koh Samui, just ended up giving in.
The day before we had noticed a row between reception staff and a British couple - again over some of the charges related to stained bed linen from the full moon party.
So some advice if you do go during the full moon period. Make sure you check your bed linen if you are using floresent paint, before and after, so you don't end up being charged for something you didn't do!
