My first visit to KPG in 2012 I stayed at another hotel on the island. While there I was blown away but the amazing service from everyone, but specifically from a young guy named 'Machi.'
When I arrived again to Phangan last month I returned to that same hotel, only to learn he no longer worked there. Disappointed, the staff told me he was now at Milky Bay Resort a little bit further down the road. Since I had no reservation I decided to check Milky Bay out.
I was ecstatic to see Machi working at the front desk. It had been nearly 2 years and he still remembered me! He showed me the resort and the rooms. Very nice setting, clean and quiet beach. I was sold! Found the food to be a little more expensive, but was still quite good. Free Wifi is available. Even on the beach, albeit a bit spotty. Service was exceptional at the restaurant, bar and again Machi and his colleague Pim (?) were outstanding at the front desk!! Really the highlight of the stay were the wonderful staff - keep up the excellent work guys!!!
Don't know when I'll be back but I hope to run into you all again! - cheers
P.S. I RARELY leave reviews but thought it necessary in this case!
