Upon seeing pictures we were taken back, the scenery is gorgeous, the bungalows lovely too and booked a superior bungalow, nice in size and layout, more expensive than we would normally pay but it was lovely on reviews.
We got picked up in a 4x4 from the port and the journey to the resort explained why. Once turning off the main road for the 1.5km trip up hill to the site it was clear that only mountain goats and 4x4 drivers could make this tripconsisting of some of the most extreme road inclines you could imagine.
Once on the resort not much changes, its all very steep needing to call reception to send a car to get you or be soaked in sweat from the climb.
Once at reception the cost to town is a shocking 200 baht per person per journey, so a weeks stay will cost your average couple an extra £80 for a five day just in transport costs.
When you approach the staff they merely shrug there shoulders when there is no night manager available to talk to.
We paid £320 to stay here for 6 nights and if we get a refund we won't be staying the duration, i sure as hell would not recommend this to anyone who enjoys seeing a place as there is nothing here for miles unless you part with even more hard earned cash. Great if sitting on site is your thing however, being under 60 and active it would be nice to get out and about without crippling your budget on transport as there is no way any scooter you hire would make it up those hills.
Avoid at all costs
A very unhappy, dissatisfied traveller!
