This little place has all the potential to be a great hotel. Super location, great public areas in the hotel and the best beds in Southeast Asia. And it really looks good in the pictures. But the delivery of the product appears to have slipped. The rooms are spacious but austere. The only decorative wall hanging in our room was a "Prohibited" poster. The furnishings and wood work are made of plywood and in need of a good paint job. There was a broken box for facial tissues--when we commented to the staff, the box was removed, still no facial tissues. Or soap for that matter. It took two days to get a small bar of hand soap. There are NO towel bars anywhere or a shower curtain for privacy or to keep water from spraying around the bathroom.
Breakfast starts out as a good idea. A quiet breakfast on your own private patio. The first day the breakfast, very nice, was delivered cold. The second day it was so late we went to plan "B", deliver it to the pool area as we waited for our driver--cold again! The third day we opted for a fruit plate...hard to mess that up.
The front desk staff was friendly and did their best. And "Jim" the hotel tuk-tuk driver was outstanding in every way.
The hotel needs a good kick in the butt by ownership to get it back on track. The potential is just below the surface.
