This is a stunning hotel from the reception area, to rooms, through to the pool.
It is most definitely the best bed we have EVER slept in, and was hard to actually leave the hotel room! I even tried to purchase a pillow on departure!
We opted for a standard room overlooking the park and it was more than adequate, in fact it was bigger than most rooms I have stayed in before. I would certainly recommend the cheapest room and save the money for your holiday.
The staff were always friendly and willing to help with anything you needed including organizing day trips and sorting out taxi's etc.
The hotel has thought of pretty much every small luxury you could want. The food is also great. We didn't actually eat in the main restaurant as it always seemed to quiet which is a shame.
When reading the other reviews we thought that people may be exaggerating about the issues with taxis and finding the location of this hotel. It didn't take us long to realize that no one knows where it is. After speaking to a friendly ex-pat he explained that the road name 'wireless' is a recent change to the road name. It used to be called Withiyu (check on spelling) but it translates to radio. Make sure you make a note of this for all taxi drivers otherwise you could be driving round for ages.
The hotel helped us arrange a trip which was about 5 hours in duration and covered most of the major temples (wats) and a river cruise along the canals and waterside homes. Was a pretty great trip. Our guide was called Pina and was wonderful.
We ate a a place called Eat Me which was amazing food and a really nice atmosphere (if you are lucky the owner will also share a little glass of his speciality Mars Bar Vodka with you!).
The Banyan Tree roof top bar, Vertigo/ Moon Bar is worth a stop too!
You will not regret booking this hotel.
