Looks good but don't stay too longPosted Mar 3, 2013
Pros: The friendly staff and the excellent massages
Cons: Inefficient airconditioning and the bumpy road
Location: Secluded and quiet - view of paddy fields and ocean
The hotel itself looked great with the infinity pool and outlook over the paddy fields. We had a private pool villa and initially we thought it was perfect. However, only the bedroom was air conditioned and with a unit that was too small to cope with the heat. The room was not enclosed and so heat came through the eaves and also from the open air bathroom making sleep difficult. Added to that was the fact that the bed was really hard and instead of sheets they had duvets - which definitely weren't required!! The staff were very friendly and helpful and the massages were excellent. We were supposed to stay 8 days but on the 4th day they ran out of bacon at breakfast but we compromised with ham. At lunch time we asked for a burger but we were told that there was no fresh bread. This was the last straw so we decided to leave early. The other negative is that while it is isolated - not normally a problem - there was no complimentary transport to the nearest town and the road was so poorly maintained (not the resort's fault) that you really didn't want to travel on it anyway. So while it looked the part I would only recommend that someone stay there for 3 or 4 days at the most.
