Wow! Just returned from 3 weeks in Thailand and this was the best accommodation we stayed in.
The location is fantastic right on the beach front on Haad Salad beach. The beach isn't the best for swimming but you can have a float or swim further out if your prepared to wade out. This however is made up for by the fact that the beach is kept clean, people out cleaning every morning, and is very quiet and picturesque.
There are quite a few other small bars and hotels but nothing noisy or big so the perfect spot to relax for couples and families.
We stayed in two different rooms first the family sea view room. This had two large doubles a bathroom and a lovely veranda with a large daybed hammock, table and two chairs. There are 4 of us 2 adults and 2 teenagers and the space was just about big enough.
Our second room was the beach front family. ( Worth the extra money) There are two of these joined together. this had a very large verandah, with sunbeds at the front a hammock and table and chairs for 4. Inside is a huge double bedroom, with huge bed a small twin and a lovely big shower room. Both bedrooms have a tv and in the main bedroom there is a lot of storage.
The service at Salad Hut is fantastic. The same staff seem to work all day from about 8am till the end of service but still always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean and were cleaned while we were at breakfast so no disturbance was made to your day.
The food is fantastic, in fact it was that good that we ate there all the time we were there. Breakfast is included in the room price and was very good with lots of choice i.e pancakes, muesli with fruit and yoghurt or full english, each one coming with toast juice and coffee.
In the evening the restaurant gets full so book a table. The food was great and he choice was huge. The whole fried fish, which you can have in various ways such as with red curry sauce, was very good. Just be aware spicy means spicy. Prices are good, not the cheapest on the beach but good value.
Another thing i was impressed with was that the minibar in the rooms was a reasonable price, we have never used a minibar in the past as the charges are silly but not here.
So in all a fab place for couples or families, definitely not a party place, thank goodness.
