First and foremost I have stayed in hotels all around the world (both budget and luxury) and this was by far the best resort I have ever stayed in. My husband and I picked this place, due to the great trip advisor reviews and stunning traveler photos. Let me just say that the online photos both on trip advisor and on the website do not come close to the beauty of the hotel grounds that you see in person upon arrival. Our stay was from April 16th-23rd. This resort is top notch, 5+ stars in my book and an incredible value! At a cost of only 53 euro a night, we felt like we were staying in a luxury resort of 200+ euro a night. We stayed in one of the suite rooms (suite 14), which was on the ground level, right by the pool. We had a nice terrace that we enjoyed sitting out on and soaking up the beautiful jungle views. Make sure you do bring bug spray though - you are in the jungles of thailand and there are mosquitos.
We organized a transfer from the airport to the resort with the hotel, upon arrival. Right as we walked out of the airport there was our transfer waiting for us. I would totally recommend doing this for 19 euro bc it is a good price and saves you the hassle of trying to barter with a tuk-tuk or taxi after a long international flight. We arrived early evening and were greeted by the lovely receptionist who escorted us over to the beautifully thai decorated outdoor living room. It was also a special touch to be greeted with a fresh flower lei and delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. She showed us around the resort, explained all of the tours we could set up and showed us around the room. We were blown away by such a warm welcome!
Our room was gorgeous! Tastefully decorated in thai style and was very spacious. We had a beautiful king sized bed and the flowers they sprinkled over our bed upon arrival was a lovely touch (and it wasn't even our honeymoon). The bathroom was also beautifully decorated in Thai style and had a big open shower that we very much enjoyed. Also, the a/c was a great escape from the heat of Phuket!
The hotel grounds are meticulously groomed and there are coy fish ponds, flowers and "Thai style" sculptures everywhere. It was very exotic and I felt very far away from reality. The pool area was great! The fountains into the pool and night time lighting made it feel very romantic. This is a very quaint resort and many times it was just my husband and I in the pool...nice romantic touchI also recommend taking advantage of the happy hour and enjoying drinks by the pool....it was the relaxation we needed after a busy day touring or at the beach.
The restaurant was great too. We ate here 4 nights during our stay. We tried the pizza one night and it was delicious! We never tried any of the Italian food, but the Thai food is top notch and the Thai waitresses are very friendly. Try the spring rolls for an appetizer...we got them every night. The breakfast buffet is included in your package as well, which we took advantage of every morning. The fresh fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice is out of this world! It is also open from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. which was nice for the days when we wanted to sleep in.
Sorry to go on and on, but this place was amazing and I would totally recommend it to anyone of all ages. The service was top notch too. Being a quaint resort, they accommodated any of our wishes. They helped us arrange all of our tours and transport (I recommend doing James Bond Island and the Phi Phi Islands tour). In addition, we had a late flight at 9 p.m. and they extended our check out time from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then arranged for our luggage to be in a safe place. Any time we had a question or concern, they were there to make our stay absolutely perfect.
The location was great too. It was away from all the craziness of the resorts directly down by the beach. It was quiet, peaceful and very tranquil. Instead of falling asleep to the sounds of cars and motor bikes (as I would suspect the hotels by the beach have a problem with), we fell asleep to the peaceful jungle sounds of crickets, frogs and other random jungle sounds. Don't be concerned about the resort being a 15 min. walk to the beach. The hotel staff will drive you to the beach anytime between 9-1 p.m. and will pick you up at 4 p.m. We took advantage of this the first day, however we enjoyed driving the motor bikes to and from the beach (200 baht a day, or 4 euro a day). The bikes were safe and loads of fun!
I am not going to ramble on anymore, but if you are looking for an amazing, exotic, peaceful holiday, look no further than this resort. My husband and I are looking forward to coming back here again in the future. Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay special!
ps-they give you these fabulous silk robes that we loved wearing around the room :)
