This is a tricky one to review. The hotel's mountain setting looking up to a huge, beautiful Buddha statue and down on a superb sandy bay with a sapphire sea and spectacular surf is a travellers' delight.
The accommodation is quiet, cosy and lacks nothing in the creature comfort department. Rooms are well equipped with massive beds, global tv, fridge, safe and all the expected luxuries. Balconies are a good size but because of a sloping wall partition with neighbours, a little lacking in privacy
The lobby and adjacent restaurant area are comfortable and border on the stately home.
The food is consistently delicious. The menu is huge and nothing disappoints.
The pool area is picturesque, comfortable and is taken care of by very attentive staff. The beach is a different matter. It is a long way away and not very accessible. We tried the stepped footpath and it was very steep and a long journey. The alternative is hourly bus transport to a sister hotel which is also not actually on the beach.
The Thai and Philippine staff are friendly, helpful and mostly very efficient except for the odd occasion in the restaurant, when your main course arrived before your starter or, a bit more awkward, they both arrived together!
We went with Thomson who were superb in every respect. Their trips to James Bond Island and the elephant rides were brilliantly organised and entertaining in every respect.
The nearby towns of Kata and Patong are full of life - shops, bars, clubs and restaurants and well worth a visit.
I think anyone planning to go to this little gem should do so soon, for I have a feeling that before long this will become pretty much an exclusively Russian reserve.
Thanks to all for a super holiday.
