The lodge is in fact three hotels in a complex. The tower, Corona and April. We stayed in the Corona and found the room always very clean although dated. The staff was the best I have ever experienced. ANON who worked on reception gave some good advice on trips and was pleasant to talk to.
The breakfast was excellent with a mix of traditional British and many exotic fruit.
The April section is the newest and looked much better because of that.
My top tip is use the laundry service. Turn round is 24 hours at minimal cost. So nice to come home with a suitcase full of clean and pressed clothes!
There as a bar outside on the driveway, this was good for a lifting drink before going out or a nightcap sometimes up to 3am. It seems they would stay open whilst ever anyone wanted a drink.
Do’s – Laundry, pedicure or manicure on the beach, flight of the Gibbon rainforest trip, coral Island trip book in the hotel a saving of over 1000 Baht (800 in hotel and 2000 at the beach) and the professional go kart track. Best bar with sensible friendly staff ‘don’t tell mama’ on walking street.
Don’ts – The submarine trip. Waste of time and money with staff that was so much under pressure they lost the land of smiles!
