I stayed at this resort recently for 6 days at the end of a very busy and compact trip around other areas of Thailand, and it was the perfect location to relax, chill out and unwind. The resort is mainly used by families or couples but I stayed with my friend and had an amazing time.
The rooms are fairly basic but reasonably comfortable, functional and kept very clean. Mosquito nets were provided for us and were muchly appreciated in our battle against the beasts! As was the A/C after a long day outdoors. Our electrical appliances worked on a standard European plug with no problems. The pool area and pool itself is lovely and kept in great condition with the GMs particular ideas on poolside etiquette. The bar area is a great place to chill and enjoy the scenery with plenty of cocktail options.... If its not on the list, they'll create it for you! The restaurant is also in a lovely cool position. The breakfast buffet had everything you would expect and catered for both Thai and more western tastes. Although we didn't really eat there much during the day as we preferred to venture out and about. But the lunch buffet was tasty enough and would be great value for families.
Twin Bay is in a stunning location, you just can't get tired of the view there! During our stay if we went on the beach we were often at least 50metres away from the nearest people.
The staff were exceptionally kind and friendly, and Erik went above and beyond our expectations in making sure that we had an enjoyable stay. Both John and Erik were great in their recommendations for organising day trips and which restaurants to visit in the town.
My only critique of the whole set up is that the bar closes quite early (usually 10pm) so you will need to go into town for 'entertainment' although the staff certainly didn't mind us having drinks in our rooms or by the poolside once the bar had closed. This probably isn't an issue for the majority of guests staying in family groups though.
Twin bay resort is not a palace if you want extreme luxury, but it is excellent value for money, is clean, comfortable and has a friendly, homely feel to the place that in my opinion money just can't buy. In fact, there's simply no other place I would stay if I ever manage to return.
