Stayed here for 6 nights in March and was really pleased with the standard of the room. Admittedly the room was looking a little ‘tired’ in places but was large, very comfortable and clean. This is quite a small site but despite this still has two very good pools which were never too busy. The staff are lovely and really helpful, in fact when I asked if they had an ice tray for the fridge, they were so upset and apologetic when they couldn’t find one I wish I hadn’t asked.
There is building work going on, not only next door, but over the road as well, but at no time were we disturbed so don’t let that put you off. You are more likely to be woken up by birdsong (in fact I would bank on it).
As other reviewers have pointed out the hotel does not have a restaurant, but there is a really nice one next door called Moo 4, and there are easily a dozen eating place within a ten minute walk.
The hotel is well located being right in the middle of Kai Bae. If you turn left as you come out of the hotel and walk about 150 yards you will come to a local restaurant, can’t remember the name but you will recognise it by the barbeque at the front with rows of chickens and fish going round over the coals. You must eat here. My wife and I picked a tuna and they cooked half with garlic and herbs and the other half sweet and sour, add to that a small salad and small bowl of rice, and there was absolutely no way we could eat it all, well worth a try. Next door to the Gajapuri resort is a row of bungalows which you can walk through to get to the beach, whilst this is probably not the sort of place I would stay, it looks a bit run down, we used their beach restaurant several times and had some lovely lunches, also worth trying.
All in all, The Stage and Kai Bae are lovely and I wouldn’t hesitate to stop here again.
