We were at Infinity for 7 nights from 6th May, on the Deals.com.au package. Overall the value was good we think. Staff were as friendly as you could get, especially Aye- although the standard of English was sometimes a challenge- but get used to TIT (This Is Thailand). This resort is WAY up a steep hill and access to the ring road around the island (below) is by car only- however the resort has no issue (or delay) in delivering you down or picking you up, for the 5 minute ride. The loan of their resort mobile 'phone was a great idea. Note: the location in the north west corner of the Island is somewhat remote and you need to travel each day to other parts of the island. We were in the 4th block down the hill in a line of 16 townhouse 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom units, with plunge pool- as were a lot of other aussies (note- only the centre 3 units have views from the lower level). This was below the restaurant level and very quiet and clean although the noise from the airflow to the A/C in the unit was high- but we would not have been without it. The unit is modern and well appointed but there are 16 granite stairs going down to the bedroom level so this would be a challenge to the young and not-so-sure-a-foot. There were a couple of niggling omissions- on arrival we got the tour of the unit with intructions on the coffee machine but were not told we had to buy milk from the restaurant! Also, no trash can on the upper level. The long range water views are equal to the best on the island (even better are from the Intercontinental and Conrad, but they are much more expensive). To get around we thought the hire car from the resort at 1500 baht per day was great value and equal to what you could get in town (however there is a $AUS600 excess- the local scooter riders are OK but some of the tourists on these things have no idea- the risk is YOU getting hit). The food at the resort was OK but expensive- the seafood on BBQ night (each Monday) with lobster at 500 baht per 100 gms compared to great beachfront restaurants at Fishermans Village in Bo Phut at 200 baht (but this is 20 minutes drive away). Overall if you are looking for a 'lay around the pool in the sun' holiday- this resort is not for you- as the pool areas are more ornamental than practical. The sun lounges have no umbrellas and the grass beneath the lounges, up to 8 inches thick, was cut on the last day of our week. The resort would be more a 'base camp' from which to investigate the island. BTW whilst the Spa is not luxurious inside (it is a converted unit), the massages we had were equal to the best we have had anywhere. Hint: spend Sunday arvo at the Beach Republic buffett (in Lanai)- best food we have had in Asia.
