Haadtien is the paradise! We only stayed for 3 nights and we really with we could stay for longer!
Rooms: My friend an I stayed in Getaway Villa, which was a handsome looking cone shaped hut, with almost 360 degree of glass walls all around. You can have a full view of the slope, the trees, the swimming pool, and the sea down the beach. (And of course you can shut the blinds easily, so no concerns needed about privacy.)
Environment: All the architectures in the hotel including the reception and dining area are so delicately designed that everything mixed with the nature perfectly. (I think the hotel is basically desgined for couples rather than friends. It’s a bit too romantic!!) The beach is wide enough and the view is beautiful. The sand is the finest I’ve seen in Koh Tao and Koh Samui. But there’re scraps of corals and shells rushed from sea on to the beach, so be careful when walking bare feeted.
Location: Situated at Shark Bay, the hotel is a little remote from the downtown area. But the hotel arranges 3 shifts of free transportation to/from downtown, so it’s not a big problem (and Haadtien’s truck is really cool!). And being far from the crowded area ensures its tranquility, especially at night. (Indeed there’s some construction going on at the neighboring property, but as Haadtien has a very large territory, most of the places are not affected by any noise. And the construction is said to be finished near year end.)
Service: Honestly speaking, the staff members here are not the most warm and humble ones we’ve seen in Thailand. Some of them look a little too serious sometimes. However, they responded to our requests most promptly and efficiently and with no hesitation, which we felt very grateful.
Overall, we strongly recommend this hotel for families, couples on vacation or diving trips. You’ll love it!
