A dream hotel. Me and my boyfriend, we travel a lot, but we both agreed that this was the best hotel we have ever visited. I have to mention that the staff makes half of the whole impression. We stayed here just 5 nights and we felt very sad to leave this perfect place.
From the trips we did the boat trip with snorkelling and it was a great experience, lunch was included and we saw also the Morakot cave, a beautiful place. Don´t forget to take your camera with you, we didn´t do it and then we regreted that.
The other trip was Island discovery, but we wanted to change the program of a bit , because we read some reviews about Ko Lanta and we wanted to visit the National park, so the manager arranged everything for us for the same price. Some fruits and drinks again included. The route to the park is not made yet, so the travel in jeep was quite stressful, but it was worth to go there. We were just a bit disappointed of the driver, because we were told that he speaks English very well, but he didn´t. This is also one of the missing thing to make it perfect, but who has travelled in Asia knows that the people don´t speak English very much.
We were here during "the rainy season", but there was just a short shower in 5 days and if it rains you can go to spa or borrow a DVD from the library they have in the resort. Of course, it could be a bit risky and maybe we were lucky, but it´s worth the try. And even the price is good for such service during the rainy season. For shopping and going to bars it´s not convenient to come in ow season, because many shops and bar are closed, so except the trips we stayed just in the resort and we weren´t bored.
The pool is quite big in comparison to the pools we have seen in the hotels of neighbourhood. If you don´t like Thai food you can still choose from food they offer in their restaurant, but \i guess that after one week I would run out of the options. We had also fruits in the room for free.
The fitness center is very small and there is almost nothing (for women especially), this would be the worst thing about his hotel.
And also the fact we were greeted by the owner on arrival made an impression.
We were leaving early in the morning and we couldn´t go for the breakfast, but we were given a packed food for the travel, this has never happened to us.
We will always remember this place and we might come back.
