Two weeks of peace and calm and we have rebooked for December/January.
All the structures are open and lined with trees, shrubs and tropical foliage. The pool is square and inviting. Both the Ficus restaurant in the centre of the resort and the Beach restaurant are fabulous in their layout, clean lines and openness. The rooms are spacious. We looked at a pool suite but spent our stay in a suite on the first floor of the room buildings. Living room was huge and bedroom exactly right in size to house a super king bed. The bathroom was open and consisted of a rain shower, handheld shower, huge bath tub and a long rectangular sink for two. The WC had a frosted glass door. Wardrobe space was open, so was the storing space under the sink for toiletries.
There were two good size televisions but we could not hook them up to our apple devices which was a shame because the DVD collection in the resort library was rather outdated.
But there are electrical sockets all over and plug transformers are provided.
The food was excellent and the all day breakfast the best idea ever. I enjoyed this a lot.
If you love to be pampered, go and book a series of treatments at the very beginning of your stay. We booked each 5 treatments at the spa and had a massage every other day. What bliss! Joe who was at spa reception is also an excellent masseur. He is a gem. I also recommend Pang highly, whether for Thai or oil massages. All the other women masseuses were very good; I should know, I have a massage therapy diploma myself and tried massages all over the world and in the best spas. This spa is in several different purpose built huts and can accommodate two people at the same time.
There is a small fitness room with a treadmill, stationary bike, a few machines and free weights. But who wants to work out for long in a airconditioned place if you can take a long beach walk and swim in the ocean or pool?
Dawid K is a great manager and teacher of wines too. We spent a few hours learning about different wines in the “wine cellar”.
He also planned a very nice Xmas dinner at the beach and a stunningly beautiful New Year’s Eve party around the pool and beach. It was wonderful.
All the staff are friendly and all do their best in serving the guests. Kop around the pool was always setting up fresh loungers around the pool, replenished water and brought cool towels and fresh fruit in the afternoon. Mon was getting knowledgeable about wines in the restaurant. Alex managed to get us into a more central suite. Kade always had an eye on hospitality arrangements. Ben was very enthusiastic to get us into more adventure. So many staff, so many names; they were all fabulous.
It took us 10 full days to step out of the resort, going for a lengthy beach walk. We were so totally blissed out.
