If you haven't read my other review on Koh Ngai Resort, then i'll explain briefly, we had booked to stay there and the place was so disgustingly awful we moved to the Thapwarin after only being in Koh Ngai Resort for an hour and a half!
The welcome we got from the staff was a welcome relief after our previous bad experience at another resort, the young girl came to the beach (spoke brilliant english) greeted us with a 'Sawasdee Ka' and said I walked you walk all the long way up the beach you poor things' and then she took us both into the main resort and introduced us to her boss, who was a lovely lady who gave us drinks and took us into the reception, she grabbed our room key and said how glad she was we came to stay with them! She took us into the room, and showed us how everything worked, from door locking system to aircon system to fan to hot water everything! The room had so much character, no TV but none of the rooms here have any TV's! We said we liked it so she got the staff to take our bags to the room whilst she took a few small details from us. Then she gave us our breakfast vouchers etc and explained every kind of opening and closing time for every facility! She gave us a room jus off the beach, with a beach view, when I asked hor much expecting it to be about 4500Bht she said it was only 2500Bht!!! This is value for money, all the staff are happy and smiley and interested in talking to you and making sure they cater to your needs! All in all, brilliant resort!
Food is also excellent, the fresh fish to die for and reasonable price for fish as well, something in the restaurant are definately expensive in comparison though. However all in all I would say 3/4 days is more than enough on Koh Ngai, there really isn't too much to do other than relax and there is a trek you can do alone through the jungle which takes you to good snorkelling points and a paradise beach, all resorts will have a map of this, however its not as easy as they say and there are things us women don't like to think about like monitor lizards, snakes etc! Just becareful, me and my boyfriend got half way there and I had to turn back expecially as we climbed it in the heat and I saw a monitor lizard come flying out of the bushes across my path!!!
