We stayed here a week early July 2013. Surprised about some of the reviews as we found the place really great. Staff really good, rooms great, some construction happening "next door" in what will be new 2nd pool area but never heard it and probably finished now 3 weeks later.
We moved out of a older wel lestablished 5 star place further north on the beach after 2 nights after seeing Synergy on a morning beach walk. It was a no brainer - $100/night per room cheaper and much better quality. Just looked at their website for photo's it really does look like that and believe me I've stayed where reality doesn't match the brochure.
Selling points were:
Best part of Chaweng Beach for swimming - can't swim in some parts of the beach as 30cm/ 1 foot deep eg the 5 star place we intially had booked. Really nice infinity pool and bar area, heaps of loungers and umbrellas pool side probably 10 times as many as possible guest bed/rooms on the beach.
Rooms really good - very modern, bathrooms large and very clean. Very good (and quiet) aircon, linen etc very good quality (surprised at some other comments on this - not our experience) We opted for 2 x Sea View Rooms - 407 & 405 (M&D + 2 teenage kids) - sure not Beach Front but then they have rooms called Beach Front which are. We could "see the sea" from the deck it aint an uninterrupted vista of the sea but hey walk 25-30m and your literally on the beach anyway.
Staff really friendly and helpful (big thank you to all of you - great service couldn't be more helpful). Place feels like you are staying in a modern Boutique Hotel. They are close to finishing a much larger pool/resturant complex (probably finished now) which will be make place even better.
Location wise it is about half way along the main Chaweng beach. Shopping, resturants on main street is great but you are about 75m down a side road so nice and quite but very quick easy walk from the bustle of markets, no pumping music etc. New hotel so many locals don't know where it is - yet. Local Tour operators did though.
Hotel only opened recently so all new team there but they are customer focused and work hard. Management were really helpful also. Resturant was still getting up to speed but meet expectations food was fine - actually the Thai meal we had one evening was one of the better ones in a 2 week trip. Breakfast OK - all hotels pretty much same - best bet to go and eat at one of the many local resturants, bars etc than in hotel anyway. Happy Hour when we stayed was more like Happy Half Day starting at 1:00PM.
We have stayed in many tropical island places around the Pacific/Australia/SEA and this place is really a gem.
