Cant understand why there are bad reviews for this place.
Becks resort has a bird that can speak! Its in a big cage near the lobby and its always greeting guests in thai and English (: It looks well looked after happy.
Theres also an otter that wonders around - so cute! Doesn't bother the guests at all. In fact its a massive photo opportunity. Ive only seen them in Zoos.
The grounds of Becks is really natural and compliments the scenery perfectly. There are lots of trees, hanging orchids, dangliny plants, coconut trees etc. The sunset here is SO mesmerising.
The rooms are exactly what you need. Powerful water pressure in the shower ( have stayed at other places on the islands witg trickling shower heads). Comfortable beds that are made up everyday. Fresh white towels too. We also got our water replenished everyday (2 small bottles).
The beach bar provides sarongs for guests instead of towels. It doesnt pick up as much sand as towels do. The beach bar itself has 3 big roubd wooden raised platforms - perfect for suntanning without getting sand in my bum. Also got a masseuse to come by and we got massages on the beach deck under the coconut trees, right next to the shore. So relaxing.
Prices for food are pretty standard considering the quality. Best padthai I've had here. Street food in phangan isnt great. So I'd rather pay a bit more to know im getting good food.
The resort is located far from HadRin which is GREAT because its far less busy and safer for us to ride our bikes on the road etc. We went to the full moon party this month and when we came back it wasnt noisy at all. On the contrary we felt like we had the place to ourselves.
The kayaks are worth going for. Only 50bhat pp per hour (100bhat per kayak per hour). In Penang(Malaysia) we pay 120bhat PER PERSON per hour for kayaks half as good as the ones at Beck's so its really worth it. Also its the only place on this veach stretch that has kayaks and you can kayak to the island opposite Beck's. Bout 15-20mins each way.
Happy hour drinks at Beck's are much cheaper compared to outside. 7 bottles of singha/chang for 400bhat!
Oh a must order is the Chicken Burger with sweet chill mayo. Fresh cut fries and side salad. YUM. Chef definitrly has international experience.
Overall its a great place to be with a bunch of friends, as a couple or to bring the family.Would definitely stay here again.
