Thailand (and Asia in general) is interesting because it challenges the notion and value of 'luxury'. For me, this was such a luxurious stay and so affordable because what I want out of a hotel is comfort, cleanliness, and character.
Under the category of comfort, the bed that we slept in takes the cake. I've been in hotels all around the world, slept in all the westin heavenly beds, and sheraton sleepers you can think of, and none were as comfortable, soft, and clean feeling as this. The teak wood that the building is made of is so homey and soft on your feet.
Cleanliness: Bathroom spotless, room bright and clean, and great lighting.
Character: This is by far the most important. Since I am a Gold Starwood Preferred Guest, I almost stayed at the Meridien (where I would've gotten upgraded etc.), but I decided to try this place out for half the price and I'm SO glad I did. This is a boutique hotel with a great attitude. The people are so lovely and make you feel like you want to be there. The breakfast out in the garden each morning was just great.
This, in my opinion, is a luxury hotel. And I've seen them all.
