How to Get There
We had a great 10 night stay at his this beautiful resort. The highlight of the stay were the staff. They are genuinely friendly and we’re a pleasure to deal with.
The food was great and to buffet breakfast was amazing. The omelet’s are made fresh in front of you and go very well with the freshly squeezed juices.
Every couple of days they have a Thai boxing class on. I did it with the kids and they really enjoyed it. Om who takes the class and also works around the pool and bar is fantastic. He’s a real asset to the resort. We stayed in the pool villa and it’s private and well maintained. The only drawback is that the beach out the front isn’t quite as nice as some of the surrounding beaches. At low tide it’s quite ugly. On the high tide it’s nice. Silver beach just up the road is lovely and only about 800 metres away.
Breakfast need to be improved.
Light on my villa in the pool and garden was not working however I did not request to be fix.
Too much mosquito every where as the bathroom is outside the room. Even though the spray the room every day but still. Hotel need to find solution for that.
The beach has to much rocks.
I was so excited about my stay here, having left another (beautiful) hotel in Koh Samui to break the trip up a bit, and I have to say...I was disappointed.
As you arrive at the hotel it is set back off the road, down a dingy alleyway guarded by possibly the most grumpy looking man in Thailand. You then arrive at the main entrance, which is up a beautiful set of steps.
The main entrance is taken up by a massive pond type feature which just seems to be a haven for mosquitoes rather than the image the designer probably had in mind.
My room wasn't available so I went to relax by the pool, which is absolutely beautiful on first look. The staff there are nice, but are certainly not particularly attentive. Given that at any time of my stay there were a maximum of 10 people, you should not need to call staff over and then wait 20-30 minutes for a drink to be delivered.
Staff then came to meet to advise that my room was ready and offered to show me various features of the room. Unfortunately I don't think that the hotel website particularly represents the rooms well. I was in a Plunge Pool Suite and it was so dark. There is little privacy and all of the rooms are overlooked, so you have no choice other than to close blinds and curtains all the time, leaving the rooms like a cave. The bathroom is outside on the other side of the pool, so if you get up to go the bathroom during the night you are exposed to a million mosquitoes, and no air conditioning. The light in the bathroom is also poor to the point that I couldn't even attempt to wear makeup for the whole of my stay for fear of what I might look like!
The rooms are also extremely dated and because all the windows and doors are wooden then are very noisy. I felt like I had a heard of elephants in the room above me because everytime they opened or closed a window or door I could hear it. It also means that there isn't a great seal - the door to my pool didn't close fully, it was lockable but huge gaps left room for many flying biting insects to get in. The turn down service do spray the rooms, but offering mosquito coils would be beneficial.
The 3 nights I stayed the internet failed every single night at 18:00 and was offline until 09:00-10:00 the next morning. This isn't helpful when you're trying to work in the evenings. No explanation was given when I reported this each night and for a 5 star hotel, there really should be reliable internet.
There is really only 1 restaurant in this hotel - the Ocean Pier isn't used so is essentially just an eyesore that attracts algae on the beach, the Plunge Bar serves the menu from the main restaurant. Other restaurants are really a taxi ride away rather than walking distance.
The staff are the saving grace here, they are very kind and thoughtful, but as mentioned, not as attentive as I would expect for this brand.
The beach here is not a swimming beach, which isn't really an issue for me, but if you book here expecting to be able to walk onto the beach and go swimming, you'll be disappointed, and this isn't really reflected on the hotel website.
There needs work for this hotel to meet Le Meridien standards.
