This must have been an amazing resort, when it was opened. However, only some five years later especially the rooms look nothing like in the nice photos on the web.
Staff is nice. Food at restaurant good. The location right on the beach is nice, even though the beach is not great for swimming. Main pool is nice.
Rooms are really run down. Feels like the entire resort is run on a very tight budget. I feel sorry for the staff, who all tries hard. Floor boards feels rotten, especially around our own pool. Looks like they are re-working all the rooms now though.
Many minor flaws in room too, doors not working, fridge not working, a/c and shower both difficult to adjust in temp. I can go on. We had bad luck too, very dirty water in our first room, apparently following a broken pipe earlier that day. Only a day later we were offered a change of room. Millions of mosquitos and flies. We had a large mouse living with us in our room, until we got help from staff to sort him out.
We had bought a package deal with inclusions like meals and massage etc. there were repeat confusions about the contents, and it felt like we were constantly 'complaining' because no one knew about the stuff we had been promised (by deal.com).
Feels like this place only need some TLC, and it can be a great cool place, especially for couples looking for a romantic retreat.
Will i come back, no...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The general area is underdeveloped and peaceful with the only a few high-end residential villa projects sharing the beach. The resort occupies 5 acres (12 Rai) of land, with 26 villas. Most have private swimming pools, and outside areas. The 100 meter beachfront and 50 year old trees help provide the X2 atmosphere the owners were striving to achieve, and gave designers the background on which to recreate the resort. ... more less
