We were really excited about this part of our trip- Thipwimarn was to be the luxurious and decadent part of our backpacking honeymoon! We had booked the superior room for 7 nights and when we checked in the staff were great, the views from the main deck to die for and we couldnt wait to jump into the infinity pool. Our room, however was a complete disappointment- the room was tiny, tv tiny but the worst part was the bathroom flooded everytime we had a shower. We had little visitors (geckos etc) but that was to be expected given the surrounds. Given the price we were paying we decided we could do better at another resort down the road (and also be closer to the main st and not have to pay for a hotel taxi everytime) and approached staff. They were very polite but adamant about no refunds on our deposit so we were just going to cut our losses and leave anyway, when the manager stepped in and offered us the seaview studio for the same rate- which we jumped at. The room was a vast improvement but overall, i didn't feel the rooms themselves justified the rates- we were essentially paying for the view. The bathroom was separate to the room itself but facilities modern and the room itself was nice. The restaurant food is amazing but exxy for Ko Tao prices and after the episode with the room the staff were sullen and not so friendly. Ah well.
