Just had my second stay at Ban Sua . I chose the Long Life room again for its nice private terrace and panoramic views .
I also brought some friends with me this time and they stayed in the Rocks room the first night . But we opted for an upgrade for them as the Rocks room is a bit small for two eole and lacks cooking facilities . So Klaus moved them to the highest big apartment , and that was wonderful with even better views than my room ! PLUS a huge rooftop terrace .
Once again the staff were lovely and friendly . And once again I was adopted by the hotel dog who would sleep on my terrace and greet me with a wagging tail every morning . And for people who like dogs , it is nice to have a temporary pet when travelling .
My friends hired some scooters , automatics , and they ran well and there were no problems. The staff supplied helmets . I recommend wearing the helmets because within 10 minutes they encountered a police checkpoint and dozens of people were getting booked for not wearing helmets .
Nice little local beach about 300mts away , usually with only 0-3 people on it ! Nice little cafe on the beach .
I myself opted for an AVIS rent a car and even though it was a little Yaris , it handled the steep access road with ease . You kinda do need transort as the main towns of Chaweng and Lamai are about 4km away . I found having a car this time was very handy . Ban Sua have cars to rent also that are cheaper than AVIS . I chose AVIS cos it was my first time driving in Asia and I wanted 100% insurance cover for peace of mind . In hindsight , it is safe to drive if you take it easy and keep an eye on crazy tourists on scooters .
All in all , a very pleasant place that gets a lot of repeat guests .
Thank you Klaus and staff at Ban Sua ..... and Dog .
