We found the restoration of the main building to be really very special although the indoor pool looked as if it needed a clean. We had a bungalow in the grounds which was very spacious although the internal step up to sleeping area and down to bathroom could catch out the unwary. But some work was being done near to reception and there was lots of banging and noise of electrical tools. We enquired at reception when this would be finished and were told 7pm - at 9pm when it was still happening I had to complain to reception which did stop it. As the resort seemed very empty we couldn't understand why we hadn't been put further away?
The staff were very friendly but at dinner there were only two other couples eating and we just felt the place was coasting backwards. It needs an international on site manager with experience of working elsewhere to give the whole place a shake and inject some vibrancy.
There were a number of people at breakfast but the choice was very limited and looking around it seemed as if the main client group was Myanmar citizens with money.
As our luggage was carried out of the door staff were heading in to strip the bed etc!
I would seriously consider if this meets your needs.
