The positives- location-at the good end of Kata beach- but you need to go down a very steep set of steps to get to and from the beach. Lots of restaurants very close by. The size of the studio rooms are very good and they are stocked with wine glasses, corkscrew, plates etc which you don't always get in a hotel room. One other positive of the hotel was the housekeeping- they kept our room very clean and the towels were really new and fluffy
Negatives- the pool is really shaded and cold. This means your option for cooling down is a very cold pool or going to the beach. If you are not a beach person for every day keep this in mind. No sun around the pool so you won;t be getting a tan there.
-Breakfast was clearly a cost saving attempt. For $270aud a night I expected more.Understand in a small complex that a buffet is not feesible, but the a la carte options should have been of a higher standard. This really irritated us after an 8 night stay because it was just being cheap and money grabbing on the part of the owner. See my review for Kata Villas where breakfast was excellent at $3 to see what I mean. Staying in upmarket villas and being offered breakfast options such as cornflakes, chicken sausages and basic sliced bread doesn't cut it. it wouldn't be hard to mix up a batch of bircher museli every morning and offer some nice breads- especially since the owner is swiss and a lot of europeans were staying there.
Frankly I felt that we were being gouged a lot of the time for food, drinks and the overall value.
