Now that we are back into the swing of things, we can't help but miss our sun drenched afternoons by the pool after a rewarding morning visiting the temples. Why did we love journeys? Because they care and understand that customers are best when kept happy. They always welcome you with a smile, clean the rooms really well, help you with anything you might require. They organise trips, tuc tucs, dinner reservations, all with pleasure!
They also offer free laundry, how good is that!! And believe you me, you will need laundry after visiting the temples in the heat.
They do a turn-down service which includes spraying the rooms for mosquitoes and other bugs, very important in that tropical climate.
The rooms are spacious we stayed at the top bungalows overlooking the pool.
You will not be in the centre of town but they have free tuc tucs in the evening and it only takes under 10 mins to get there. And it's an adventurous experience to catch a tuc tuc, you get a real feel of the place. And if you need to catch a tuc tuc outside the free tuc tuc time, it's only Us$3.
We also used their services to get a driver and a tour guide for our visits to the temples over 3 days and they put a morning itinerary together for us which was really well planned. We enjoyed it very much. Also we had one day with nothing planned left and after chatting to Rama (sorry cant remember how to spell his name but he was one of the main local staff members at reception), he suggested catching a tuc tuc in the morning and visiting some temples we hadn't seen yet and his suggestions were very clever and an amazing surprise. He booked the tuc tuc for the morning which included the tuc tuc driver picking us up and taking us to a few temples and waiting for us and dropping us back for under Us$20 for 3 people.
Special mention to the lovely girl who served us breakfast every day and to Michelle who helped us out when we needed to scan some documents and email them. And to everyone who greeted us with a smile, ie everyone who works there!
