This was my first stop on a tour of Asia. The hotel owner himself (Dan) and wife Tan waited up to welcome me in despite my flight not landing until 2230. Very kind, they also organised a taxi driver who spoke english and was there waiting for me for the average price of a private taxi.
They both checked in with me each day (as i was alone) to ensure I was enjoying my trip and offer tips and advice. Such as the Banzaan Night market which has AMAZING thai food really cheap and a buzzing atmosphere. They also booked a tour for me to the James Bond Island which exceeded all my expectations for the price (half that advertised).
Finally on the last day they let me keep my room despite not departing until 3pm. Lounged by the pool having cleaned out my room, where the cleaner brings me my sunglasses I'd left in the room having fixed them for me! (I'd broken the arm off and lost the screw) but I'd put them in the bin so that was totally unexpected!
Ever want a midday chat, stop by Dan to hear about his latest book!
Overall, a lovely stay with much needed advice given from them both and a good hotel out of the madness but close enough you can join in!
PS the shower was brilliant!
