We went to Baan Bophut for our honeymoon and had a great time. The owners and staff were always nice and helpful and whatever we asked for we got, no questions asked, weather it was help with booking tourist things like a tour around the island or just general questions or advise and tips on where to go and what to avoid.
Like this one night at the bar when I ordered a drink with bananas, and when there was no bananas Lucy hopped on a scooter to go get some at 7 eleven. I mentioned that I play guitar and they let me borrow one from the hotel. They really did go out of their way to make our stay as good as possible.
The beds are AMAZING and very hard to get out of, but even if you roll out of bed long after lunch they still make you breakfast. The breakfast itself was not amazing,( a croissant with jam and butter, a bowl of cereal, a fruit plate, freshly squeezed juice and coffee or tea) but it sufficed considering the weather was really hot and personally I'm not very fond of a big breakfast when it's hot. There is however the possibility to add eggs, bacon, toast etc at a very low cost so there is food for the hungry ones aswell.
The pool is kinda small but there's not that many rooms so it doesn't really get crowded in there and it's nice to swim in. Fot entertainment you can borrow DVDs from reception and there's a TV, a DVD-player in the room.
You also get fresh water every day since tap water isn't really drinkable anf there's a little minibar aswell,
The rooms are average sized with AC and the view in our room was great. We had a room facing the ocean and it was lovely with this little porch in the front.
Bophut village in general is probably not the best place to go if you're looking for a party place, it's pretty quiet with nice restaurants and little shops. But if you want to go someplace to relax then I recommend this.
In conclusion, we are very happy with our stay and Baan Boput is without a doubt the cosiest hotel we've every stayed at. It feels like a family and I'm glad we got to be a part of it for almost 2 weeks.
Thank you Lucy, Mai, Tic and the rest of you for a great vacation and a memorable honeymoon!!!
