“Cooking School review”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We were staying in the Fishermans Village but after an exploratory walk we signed up for a 4 course cooking class with Chef Pramote at Peace Resort. If you are new to Thai cooking this course is fantastic. Chef and his assistants guide you through the preparation and cooking of your choice from 4 different menus each of 4 courses. The course is now held in a dedicated and beautifully kitted out kitchen. I have been cooking Thai food at home since my first visit here 30 years ago but Chef Pramote is so full of tips and knowledge that it was worth every Baht. Warning: do not eat breakfast before this course. We were also given an apron to keep and a certificate of completion. Great fun, great food and lovely staff. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful resort with sweet little bungalows dotted among rainforest like gardens. It really is a quiet haven away from it all. The pool is lovely and clean with well kept deck chairs both around the pool and on the beach. You can walk to fishermans village in approx 15mins (slowly along the beach) the sand isn't compacted so it's difficult to walk on. Or you can take the main road out the back which takes longer but is easier on the legs ;) The standard bungalow was beautiful and much nicer than I expected with a fabulous air conditioner. I would definitely love to visit this resort again as the whole place is kept immaculate and is very clean.

As you drive in from the main road, you reach a jungle oasis! I soon realised I had accidentally left my phone on the airport minibus and the hotel staff kindly got it back whilst we settled into our room - very much appreciated!

We stayed in a beautiful and clean sea breeze villa. The resort was quiet, so it was even better! The room is large, with a separate seating area. The bathroom isn't hugely private as you can see to and from the toilet from outside the room, but nothing you can't work around. The bed was divine, huge and so so soft!

The beach was lovely, plenty of loungers in the shade or sun - we didn't try sitting by the pool as the beach was too good. The beach was quiet as the big resorts are closer to the village, which reduced traffic which was nice. The village is still easy to get to by beach or road.

The restaurant staff were great, remembering our coffee/tea preferences in the morning and we were made to feel very welcome by Julee. The selection at breakfast was huge, something to suit everyone. The grounds staff worked incredibly hard and always smiled as you passed, same with the efficient security at the gate. My boyfriend enjoyed a thai massage overlooking the beach at a very reasonable price.

Unfortunately the reception staff really let down the hotel - they were mostly disinterested (except the kind girl who rescued my phone!), on one occasion one male member of staff was rude and laughed at my boyfriend and with the other reception team, ignoring him whilst behaving very strangely, which made him feel very uncomfortable, whilst he was asking if we could extend our stay. We didn't - but only because they wanted to charge us double our existing room rate for an extra night, despite the hotel being quiet. However, the kind girl did intervene and took my boyfriend aside to discuss the extension - unfortunately we didn't get her name.

Our check out was unnecessarily slow, with limited pleasantries and again, disinterest, despite prior arrangement to ensure we got to our transfer to Koh Phangan in good time. We were left confused where the pre-booked car was as we headed down the drive with our luggage after being dismissed by reception and very concerned we would miss the pre-paid transfer as we only had a few minutes to spare. Unfortunately the hotel driver then got lost and we did almost miss the boat - if not for the care of our next hotel who tried to find out where we were and kindly delayed the transfer for us.

I would give the hotel 5 stars if the reception team matched the quality of the staff elsewhere in the resort, it was just such a disappointment. Nevertheless, this would not stop me coming back and i wouldn't want to put you off staying at the beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: Sea Breeze Villas are spacious and a stones throw from the beach.

location is perfect, just 15 min walk from the fisherman village, the beach is gorgeous, the food is good, the standard room is a bit small but apart from that it is lovely, you feel like you are in the middle of a forest, the vegetation is stunning. I would go back again.

Our awesome travel agent Vanessa from MTA Travel booked this sight unseen for myself and my son and we stayed for 1 week. I would have to say I was very impressed from the time we arrived (we were greeted with a drink on arrival). The Staff were very friendly, but most of all the whole resort was spectacular as can be seen by my uploaded photos. Breakfast was included in the mornings which was very nice (I recommend trying the Omelette cooked in front of us to our request). I must say that we didn't eat at the restaurant for any other meal nor did we attend the Bar as we were too busy exploring this awesome Island. We both hired Motorbikes from the resort for $7.00 au a day, but I recommend checking the tyres and helmet condition,making sure it is in sound condition.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be in a good position, although we stayed central.

Peace Resort.... Very well named. Calm, tranquil, unhurried, thoroughly relaxing - all of these joking to create such a marvellous atmosphere. The beach side location is stunning. If you're in to beach walking, try turning left and keep going for nearly 6 miles of wonderful beach. A much shorter walk the other way brings you to Fisherman's Village. We only stayed for two nights and we ate in the resort on both nights. You are spoilt for choice, however, in Fisherman's Village. Some great places (by all accounts) and amazing value for money. Both our evening meals were stunning. We had one of the bungalows. It was charming, very comfy and we loved it. Our friends had a beach villa. Even better. A great place and we'd definitely consider returning.

Stayed at Peace Resort for 10 days in May, loved the location and the traditional Thai feel of the resort. We booked with Hayes and Jarvis, and for some reason got half board included in the deal, this is something that we have never bothered with before on our prior trips to Thailand but as we never turn down a freebie we of course accepted this. We had a three course set meal at the Sea Wrap Restaurant which is sublime and overlooked the ocean. Very relaxing. The hotel is also not far from Fishermans Village which is a great place to go in the evening,especially on Friday nights when they have the night market. The staff were lovely, big thank you to Julee, Pang, Pie and Chock and everyone else in the restaurant and also the bar staff, apologies for forgetting everyone else's names but everyone was fab. Hopefully we will get to come back to the Peace Resort which really does live up to its name.
