After much debate, we settled on the Banana Fan Sea Resort.
The impressive quality began with the airport pickup: air conditioned vehicle, moist towel to freshen up and cold water to help cool down. At the reception, we were greeted with big smiles and a friendly staff. We were served a complementary drink while filling out the paper work.
From there, we were taken to our room where we were greeted with a small little house near the pool (room 106). We were on our honeymoon, and therefore, received a beautiful flower-made greeting on the bed and some champagne.
We made the most of our first day and enjoyed the large pool, the massage service on the beach and the - best of all - beautiful and warm beach water. We had a bite at the nearby Baitong Restaurant (linked to the resort) which was also responsible for serving breakfast. Breakfast was plentiful and had everything you could want. Bread, cereal, pastery, eggs (various types, made on the spot), fruit, cooked foods, etc, etc. Everything was delicious. The first night (Monday) we also made a reservation for a BBQ night with Polynesian Dancing. These happen every Monday night and should be attended by all.
The sleep was also good. While located on the main street, our room was distant from any noise that could ruin our nights. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. However, don't expect (at least for room 106) completely new and modern equipment and furniture. Nonetheless, that won't be the reason for a poor stay at the resort.
In the end, the staff at Banana Fan are priceless and make your stay perfect. It's right on the beach and leads to the main street of Chaweng, where you can find shops and restaurants.
Don't miss the chance to stay here!
