My 2 daughters and I were met at the jetty by Allen the proprietor and immediately made to feel welcome. On arrival Allen sat us down with a refreshing drink and spent time telling us all about the island and the best places to go which was so helpful,
The Thaidaho Vista is a small, clean and extremely well appointed haven. Air con in the room and free Wi-Fi provided some creature comforts which was a bonus. We had been recommended by friends to stay at the Thaidaho and were delighted to have found a hidden gem.
The views from the resort are nothing short of stunning taking me back to the bounty adverts I used to see as a child with the beautiful sandy beaches and palm trees.
Now on to the breakfast ! On the first morning I ordered the Woodys breakfast which was hash with fried eggs and fresh toast. Absolutely superb ! Allen, being American certainly knows how to cook a great breakfast.
If you want a quiet, recharge the batteries break at a very reasonable cost with an amazing view and great food, the Thaidaho is a must !!
