We visited here 2 weeks before Christmas. We really enjoyed our stay. The bungalow provides peace and quiet and has everything you need except wardrobe space but we managed. The bungalow was cleaned everyday and fresh towels provided. They have thought of most things providing a torch for walking to the fisherman's village at night (which is quicker if you walk along the beach 10mins stroll) an umbrella for the rain and even a beach bag. We did find it strange how the mini bar was cheaper than the hotel bar. We used the mini bar more as drinks were expensive in the hotel bar so we would drink on our balcony before heading into the village in the evening. Drinks and food in the village were extremely cheap. We did have drinks at happy hour in the hotel bar but did notice the times on this changed when Christmas was approaching and the hotel got busier.
The pool area was very peaceful and well kept. I had a range I'd treatments at the pool side from foot scrubs to massage which were all amazing and as a therapist myself really enjoyed the treatments which were great value although you could get them cheaper outside the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and happy to help. Taxi's are provided at the hotel entrance if required and I would recommend these over the scooters for your own safety. Taxis again are expensive so we chose to walk most places. We did have a taxi for an island tour one day which I would recommend as we got to see all of the island and our driver was very helpful in telling us about each place visited. Doing it this way also meant we could opt out of the animal shows and elephant rides (animals are not well cared for so we weren't interested as animal lovers) but still get to see the beautiful waterfalls. We didn't eat in the hotel as it was expensive compared to the village but the meals did look nice. Breakfast however which is complimentary there was a great choice on offer for everyone. There is a complimentary gym on site but we didn't use this. Over all an amazing holiday and a great place to stay would highly recommend and would go back in a heartbeat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on Bophut beach in the northeast of the island, the Peace Resort is a newly refurbished, friendly bungalow style resort, ideal for a relaxing family getaway. The style is best described as contemporary Thai with the architecture following local traditions, but a transformation in 2008 has given a more up-scale look and feel while the prices have remained very reasonable. The resort is well laid out in small buildings, ensuring a more intimate, human scale, while the grounds are tranquil and green, with a restaurant that spills out onto the beach. ... more less
