Is there a problem with the Evason?

Looking at Evason's own site there is no reference to Evason Rawai & BonIsland? Has it been sold or is there a problem?

Not showing on Agoda either?

Thx RingO & CathandGarry

To be honest - we're shattered. Stayed there in January and I had an accident which resulted in hospitalisation and the care and understanding showed by the staff to us was humbling.

Especially there was one person name Da who went above and beyond for us and I hope she and her family are safe and sound. Would dearly love to make contact with her if anyone who knows her reads this site.

Hopefully the new owners appreciate the talent they already had. The resort would not have been half as good, other then for the staff, especially the butler team, who were amazingly caring and thoughtful under trying circumstances.
