A Couple's Retreat
Posted Mar 22, 2016
A Couple's Retreat, a perfect hotel on a beautiful island which opportunities to relax. Unfortunately, I was not in a couple, I was travelling with a friend and had booked this hotel because it was close to Nathon Pier, where we were next travelling from. After the antics in Bangkok this place was perfect to just relax on the beach but I very quickly got bored and apart from the use of the gym and the kayaks there wasn't much else on offer and the nearest busy beach with bars and other travelers was on the other side of the island. However, this wasn't the hotels fault at all, who offered free travel to Chaweng (not back, that would have been helpful though) and were always on hand to help with any questions. I wish I had done more research before booking. Nook, one of the women on the reception was particularly helpful, always greeted us with a smile, spoke fantastic English and always tried to help as much as she could to resolve our boredom, one day booking an excursion for us. A great hotel for couples, NOT TRAVELERS, unless you want to get away from loud noises and the hustle of travelling.
