The overall long journey from Cape Town took its toll on me and I was not feeling very well when we arrived at Nirvana very late the evening. I was offered a warm herbal tea while we checked in and by the time we were taken to our room, I was feeling revived.
The room was spacious and nicely decorated with rural Thai furniture and linen. The goose down pillows ensured a good night's rest every time. The air conditioner worked very well.
The bathroom was clean and spacious, with fresh towels provided every day. Our room was situated on the rocky beach and we had a clear view of the sunrise every morning.
The pools and sunset deck were gorgeous. The hotel offered free transfer by boat to the nearby beach, as well as the use of their kayaks. They also arranged for the rental of a scooter to investigate the rest of the island.
The only item I did not find comfortable and up to standard at the resort was the massage service. It was done by a mother and daughter at the pool, and although under cover, the afternoon sun still shone directly on you. The massage was also not what you expect of the legendary Thai standard and during my foot massage, a towel was not placed under my knees to protect my lower back.
All in all, we found the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was reasonable but I enjoyed their dinner (Thai) menu more. In the end, we extended out stay at Nirvana with 1 day because we enjoyed it so much.
