My friend and I stayed at AKA Resort Guti on our weekend and we really enjoyed it there.
The staffs are very welcoming and friendly. One of the front desk staffs came to our car to help us with the luggage right away when we parked. The check-in process was quick. All smiles from every staffs until we got into our room.
We booked a one bedroom deluxe pool villa which was spacious. The deck and pool terrace had an amazing view of the fields and a little pond with lotuses. We stayed there for the rest of the evening enjoying the view and the complimentary minibar (2 cans of beer, 2 packs of kitkat, a pack of Lays and there’s also a 300 ml. bottle of Thai rum which we kept it for the night).
Breakfast was very good, especially the pastries and their homemade banana and strawberry jam (wish I could bring them home!). The waitresses are friendly as well as the Chef that came out and talked to the guests which we found that very caring.
Late that morning we went cycling with the resort’s bicycles around the area. There’re not many cars around so it’s pretty safe. After a good ride, we showered, changed and jumped into the resort massive infinity pool which was perfect for lap swimming. The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing by the pool with another greenery view.
If you’re looking for a tranquil place to enjoy some quiet time not too far from Bangkok, this is the place to be.
