We checked into the hotel as part of our longer tour. The hotel is about 50 minutes from Phuket airport and a taxi should cost no ,ore than 800 Baht. There are many stalls offering a taxi service outside, all at the same price. The hotel is situated at the southern most point of Patong beach, opposite the beach segregated with the road, which was great for us as we wanted some relaxation and didn't want to be in the middle of Patong. Just a quick note if you haven't visited Thailand before, Patong isn't a true reflection of the country. It's too commercialised, touristic and tacky. We knew this before we came and so booked this hotel as it was out of the way of the main centre but a very good price. Turning right out of the hotel and you are a 5 minute walk from the start of the bars and restaurants and around 15 minutes to the start of the bar street with the dancing girls, loud music etc etc. There is also a tour centre a one minute walk away where they offer laundry for 50 Baht per kg.
We had the mid category room type on offer and were really pleased with the size, comfort of the beds. The maid service was really friendly and very prompt. The bathrooms were large and ours had a separate shower and bath. You can have internet in your rooms but this is chargeable. There is also a beach bag in the room which we thought was a nice touch.
The friendliest staff we have come across on our trip so far, we have been away for 8 weeks and they were just fantastic. A special mention to Wanika, the manager, who looks after every person who stays at her hotel. We saw her at check in, breakfast, dinner and during the day talking to guests and ensuring everything was to their satisfaction.
Food and drink
The hotel offers theme dinners for a reasonable price of between 400 and 1000 Baht per person depending on the evening. We ate there once and were impressed by their fresh cooked pasta. The lunchtime menu around the pool was reasonable and happy hour during the afternoon was perfect as cocktails were 100 Baht and a beer the same amount. There was a varied selection at breakfast and on two occasions we asked for something we couldn't find and within 10 minutes the staff had made what we asked.
All in all a very enjoyable experience. There were a mix of nationalities, we noticed quite a few South Africans and Russians.
Hopefully that was helpful, anymore information please contact me.
