That's right after the first night excellent. I would have given the resort 5 stars but for the original bungalow we stayed at. But first the excellent part:
The Long Bat is situated on Haad Yao on the north western part of Koh Phangan. Remote yes but a 20 min tuk tuk or taxi and you are in town (Thong sala). You are on a beautiful beach eating breakfast or dinner to the sound of waves crashing on the reef. Want a massage no problem- the hotel has its own (at a 10% discount). Beach is also home to other places for food or drink. Check them all out. I also highly recommend Reefers Diving. It is 5 min away. They have everything you need for diving and it isnt a factory. They give personal service.
Now why did I take off one star you ask. Well I had ordered the cottage. When we showed up- my wife (which means me too) was very disappointed. If we had been a young couple no problem but I guess age has spoiled us. The cabin was small with cracks in the wood floor; a leaky air conditioner (which was fixed), a door that sort of closed. Not the greatest atmosphere. Trying to change it was a big hassle. The claim was there was many people coming. However I offered to pay an additional amount to change to the deluxe cabin. The amount (for us) wasn't much but the room was sooooooo much better. Larger, with closets, safe, and a smile on my wife's face.
So don't skimp get the higher priced room and enjoy.
