An upscale back-packers guest-house, this resort is also a good economy hotel for families, though there is nowhere for the children to run around. The hotel is built on a hillside, with the lobby and restaurant terrace at the top level. Click here for a map. The accommodation is on the same floor, and on the floors below. The stairs would be impossible to manage for an unassisted small child. The pool (2 floors down) is miniscule and isn’t safe for unaccompanied small children, as one end is an infinity edge which is next to a large drop. It is good enough for a quick splash round and cool-down, and for carefully supervised tiny tots totally adequate, but too small for teens to enjoy. The sea-view from some of the rooms is a distant one, and will not wow you.
The hotel is only 1 year old, so the rooms are in good condition - no-frills accommodation with luke-warm showers and uninspiring décor, but clean and comfortable enough for most people. Only the top-floor rooms have balconies on which it is possible to sun-bathe, as the rest of the rooms’ balconies are too small for sun-beds. It’s a hotel where adults will enjoy sitting on the comfortable, flower-laden, shaded, breezy terrace with a book, but families will have to spend their days elsewhere. Walking to the beach or to the beach-front restaurants might be a problem for some families, as they are 800m away, but a ride in a tuk-tuk costs very little and is easily and speedily arranged by the reception staff.
Breakfast is simple yet satisfactory, except for the bread. If you book this resort through us, we’ll deliver a complimentary loaf of quality bread to you on arrival, then hand it to the staff and ask them to serve that instead of the horrible sweet stuff that masquerades as bread in lower-budget resorts in Thailand. The restaurant can dish up decent enough light lunches, but it’s best to eat dinner out.
This is a small and new hotel, so it’s a good idea to carry the hotel’s card around with you in your pocket, so that you can show it to tuk-tuk drivers when you need a ride back to the hotel. The staff have a reputation for extreme friendliness and politeness, which in such a friendly country as Thailand is a high accolade indeed.
The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people and 4 people for Family suite
In addition, on this site we offer the following free benefits:
Airport transfers at only THB 500 for a taxi or THB 1,000 for a minivan.
If you book your transfer to the airport with us, we will take you to the Tiger Cave Temple, for free, en route. If adults want to climb to the top and need child-minding help while they do so, contact us.
We’ll personally inspect the available rooms at the resort for the dates you require, then report back to you with details of the available rooms that best meet your requirements.
We’ll give you a free quality bakery loaf of bread on arrival.
You will be able to take advantage of unlimited travel advice before arrival – we know southern Thailand intimately and so can organize all your accommodation, travel, sports and activities. This personalized and customized service comes at no extra cost to you – we get our commissions from hotels and activity/transport providers, not from you.
