This is the fifth time using the hotel to do a visa run from Phuket - about a 5 hour drive to the Andaman pier. Over the five years I have done this route I have noticed gradual cost cutting measures but the basic comfort and food quality has been maintained. The cost of a room and breakfast has also gone up significantly in the last year. The 18 hole golf course is effectively 9 holes as maintenance is done alternately on the front and back nine.
It is good to see credit cards being accepted again after a few years break. (Visa, Mastercard and Amex). One tip picked up this time is that booking direct with the hotel rather than use the internet eg booking.com etc is 300 baht cheaper. Odd.
The monkeys now get very close to the hotel and I saw them getting onto some balconies in the evenings. Signs are up in each room warning occupants to keep the patio doors closed. It needs to be heeded but fascinating to see them so close up in the wild.
