We stayed at this hotel on our honeymoon, and i can honestly say it more than exceeded our expectations.
From the moment we arrived we were picked up from the airport by 2 very kind and gentle thai characters who were very helpfull towards us.
The rooms are "AMAZING" the bed alone must be 7ft x 7ft squared it's huge and the room itself is very spacious, lovely modern features, quiet aircon, big bathroom with tv at end of bath, free toothpaste every day and complimentary water, beds turned for you every evening, they even sent us up a special cake with happy honeymoon on it, it's the small things that count.
The resort itself is lovely with a great spa (tad pricey though) nice breakfast (included) and a shuttle bus to and from the town.
All in all we had a wonderfull time here and can totally recommend this hotel to ANYONE, if you are only thinking of staying here well stop thinking and just book you wont be disappointed.
One bad thing, although not directly the hotels fault.. but the concierge girl who organises the tours (she worked for an outside company who set up in the hotel) we were totally unaware of prices of the tours, and this girl recommended we should go by taxi to the elephant camps and then pay in, we trusted her and went with it only to find out later that the taxi was in fact her husband and we were charged 4x times the going price (literally) from her rather than go to the local tour offices where it was a quarter of the price (we only seen all the tour vans when we got there which aroused our suspicions as to why we were the only ones in a car)... maybe sometimes we should not trust so easy in future with these things.
Dont let that put you off though this place is amazing.
