My wife and I stayed at Casa De La Flora in early December 2013 for 8 nights as part of a short tour of Thailand which, in addition, took in Chiang Mai and Bangkok.
We booked Casa De La Flora a few months in advance directly with the hotel. The staff were very responsive to our needs and questions which covered both the hotel reservation as well as tours and recommended activities located nearby.
We stayed in a Beachfront Pool Villa which had amazing views of the ocean, a private pool and a secluded garden area for sunbathing and relaxing. The room was perfect, all mod cons with home entertainment system, movies and music. You can easily plug in your own IOS devices too. Early December was very quiet in the hotel; this suited us completely. Having said that, we felt that even at full capacity, the design of the hotel meant that it would never seem oversubscribed and would therefore remain a very relaxed and tranquil place to stay.
I saw in previous reviews, some people mentioned problems with paint and cracks and evidence of the property "ageing" - On our trip in December we saw no evidence of this, whatsoever - everything was perfect and great care is taken to look after both the property and gardens.
The hotel staff were all excellent, extremely polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is lovely, but the staff make it truly exceptional.
I would definitely return to Casa De La Flora. We were a bit dubious about it at first, as it has a fairly radical design for Thailand and does not necessarily fit into the traditional mould of traditional teak style hotels. That said, we loved the design and as we were travelling to more traditional hotels later in our trip, the modernity was a great contrast.
