I went to this hotel in the end of July and stayed there for almost 2 weeks during all my vacation. Staff was very friendly and helpful, smiling and greeting every time they saw me. The room is very cozy, bathroom is big, everything is clean and new.. and I’ve got nice view to the hotel’s garden!
Breakfast was good, the menu is almost the same in every Thai hotel – eggs, sausages, fresh veggies, different fruits, corn flakes and toasts. Also they have some Chinese food like rice and noodles.
Walking distance to Patong beach and Bangla Road, also you can easily rent a bike and go anywhere on the island.
But the most memorable thing about this hotel - they have Thai Cooking class there! It was one of the highlights of my trip. There was one more student except me and we had a fantastic hours preparing Thai food and after that eating everything we cooked. Firstly we went to the market with thai chef Thon, he explained so much to us as we walked through the market. We purchased few items for our dishes and went back to hotel. When we arrived - staff already transformed the garden in front of hotel into professional cooking area. We got out aprons on and began learning various steps in preparing our 4-course lunch! My favorite dish was green curry with chicken, or maybe lemongrass salad? Difficult to decide)) Banana in coconut milk was also delicious. As a surprise bonus, we got carving master class from the chef after we finished our amazing lunch. Chef Thon is very professional, friendly and patient. We learned so much from him, starting from basic knife techniques to some cooking secrets. in the end - photo with the chef and sertificate on hand! We also got copies of the recipes, so im gonna impress my friends with delicious thai food soon.
All in all, MUST do while in Thailand. Thank you for this unique experience!
