We spent the 2012 Songkran Festival (Thai New Year) at the Birds & Bees Resort and had a fantastic time. We were there for 4 nights (two families - 4 adults & 3 children) and were blown away by the resort. The location is simply sensational and you would never know you're only 150km from Bangkok and just south of Pattaya's madness. The restaurant is the highlight, with magnificent, huge trees overhanging the wooden decks and also providing shade on the beach in the mornings. The food was very good and there was a nice combination of Thai food and some western dishes if you wanted them. Pricing was not cheap for Thai food but the quality was excellent, so you grin and bear it. We had both the Big Bird and Big Bee units and they were great! Absolutely perfect and no complaints with the rooms. A resort information folder would have been good to have though. The kids pool area was a win with the children and gets shade in the afternoon so is good. All round this resort is worth staying at. The only negatives in our opinion were a) the attitude of the restaurant staff, who could not have been less attentive and disinterested and devoid of a smile if they tried (notable exceptions were Khun Prayoon and Khun Kittaya, who were fantastic!!) and b) the amount of rubbish/litter in the water and on the beach. The resort does clear the beach area each morning but again it's probably a staff attitude that sees the rubbish prevail regularly during the day. The rubbish in the water is not the resort's fault, as it is a problem in that province/area on the whole, with local operators, fishermen and businesses simply using the sea as a dumping ground. Sad, but local attitudes will need to change if this situation is ever going to improve. Birds & Bees Resort is great and we will definitely be back!!!
