This is an excellent, exotic property on the Pattaya - Jomiten beach away from the hustle bustle of pattaya city, yet it is very much within the main city. The resort is quiet, relaxing, comfortable and has the luxurious touch. The staff has been very courteous and outstanding. The breakfast is good and has a wide range of food items. The cottages are spotless and has antique furniture and decor, very different from the conventional standards of a resort/hotel. The resort manager was excellent and she was doing her best to keep each and every customer happy. The moment you enter the resort, you would feel that you somewhere admist the nature..wood, large trees, tropical flower..etc. The hotel folks would give you a small rabbit shaped candles as a sovenour. We stayed at R4 cottage which is closest to the pool and the beach. The cottages are very spacious and all the doors and windows have nets to keep the mosquito's away from the room. The beach road is closed between 8am to 5pm for vehicles, after which the hotel has a pick up and drop service to the main road. The hotel is not surrounded with standard night life activities, so it is quite peaceful and safe as well. If you take the bus directly from Bangkok International Airport, the bus would stop bang opposite to the hotel property ( with a 5-10 min walk). The bus fare is roughly 130 Baht from Bangkok International Airport to this resort and same is the cost way back to main city ( but from different bus station/depot, which is again a 10 min drive in tuk tuk), so no need to take the taxi ( unless you want to splurge upon). The food is excellent and the dinning area over looks the beach..and we had a lovely candle lit dinner on the 1st/2nd day. The breakfast area is same as the dinning area. At night, one can take a nice stroll as it is quite safe. The resort has two swimming pools (a) Adult pool (b) family pool..so you can opt for either of them. The spa/massage packages are also not that expensive and one should surely go for it. Hotel food is also served on the beach bed..so you can have both local and food ordered from the hotel. Some of the beach beds are been charged for but if you are staying at this resort, they have exclusive Rabbit Beach beds and only the guest can use it. The resort has wifi facility and you can receive the connection even till the beach/beach bed..so you can enjoy your reading on a laptop/mobile/tablets. The resort will also help in booking the Tiffany show well in advance, so you dont have the hassle to go early and book tickets for the show. The rooms have microwave, minibar and safety deposit as well. Orchids being the national flower of Thailand, our rooms had the flowers everyday which for me was quite nice. The only thing which i didnt like is that the restaurant/room service used to close at 10.30pm local time ..but again cant do much about it, because guests generally tend to visit the main city. Last but not the least, the room rates are not that expensive compared to the resort facilities, ambience, location etc. All in All, it was an outstanding experience and one should visit this property a tleast once if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay/holiday.
