This place is only 4 star on many booking sites, but I think it should be at least a 4.5 if not a 5! it is glorious! From the off the street reception, to the staff, to the individual bungalows, to the gorgeous restaurant, to the pool/bar area, to the best massage Ive ever had - everything was wonderful! And surprisingly reasonably priced!
The only thing I would comment negatively on - to be very picky - was the sand on the beach was a bit coarse to walk to the Fishermans Market, but I thought of it more of an exfoliant! (husband not so impressed). The water in the bay was a little milky.
Good location, short walk to Fishermans Market, which has local markets on Friday nights. Excellent recommendation for snorkelling at Ko Tao from waitstaff (Julee) who was lovely, and taught us some Thai at breakfast. My husband was impressed with the breakfast buffet (he rates resorts/hotels on this alone), omelette station, european selection, cereals, bacon, yoghurt, fruit etc.
Would certainly recommend staying here. It was lovely and romantic as a couple, but also would suit families with small children - kids pool, kids room etc.
- 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
