We didn't really stay there in 2016 -- it's just that we had to put in a date. We visited way back in 2001 and I looked you up today just wondering if you were still there. My friend and I had a great stay back then, and we still speak very fondly of the resort. I especially remember the...

I am delighted that we are still remembered after 16 years ago! We must have made quite an impression. We have now been on our new site for over 8 years and whilst returning guests initially commented that they missed the old place, we are pleased that we have considerably improved the facilities and at the same time, maintained the...

We stayed at this hotel on a birding tour so I have no idea of its cost. It was one of the highlights of the tour. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The WiFi service was excellent. Dinner in the restaurant was served family style to our group of 9 and it was delicious. As mentioned by others the...

Thank you very much for taking some time to write a review. It would appear that every aspect of your stay met with your distinct approval and it was pleasing to read that your stay with us was one of the highlights of the tour.

We brought 50+ students on a community service trip and they loved it. Brian and Rosie and their staff sorted everything out, planned a series of exciting challenges and activities and laid on great food with more than adequate accommodation.

Dear David, Thanks for this review and your comments. Readers should know that the school mentioned (St Christopher's, Bahrain) has been coming here for many years and in that time has contributed over Baht 2.5 million for local school improvements (and coming to help with the building process), as well as sponsoring 16 local students from poor families, which has...

I was surprised at how beautiful the grounds were here. Nicely manicured with lovely flowers all around. Our room was on the ground floor and opened onto a patio with a view overlooking a pond. Room was nice, but the beds could have been better. Everything else was fine. Interesting shower in the bathroom with the rock floor. I have...

We stayed for a few days, whilst visiting our daughter who is working locally. The gardens in the resort are so well cared for, and really well thought out (lots of shade but sun areas if that is your preference). The staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate the the restaurant several times and the food was excellent (lots...

Had a delightful time at this resort hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The river runs in the back of the resort, it is a great spot to just sit and relax when you want to get away from the kids for a bit. The rooms are lovely, the restaurant is excellent.

Everywhere was beautifully decorated, staying three nights were hardly enough, we wish we could stay longer. We like the freshly baked bread and muffins from the kitchen very much, the lunch buffet was also worth to try. We were well taken care of throughout our stay, hope we can come again very soon!

Very nice and comfortable to stay. Fresh air, nice environment , fun activities for adults n children gathering & bonding .A great getaway from the hustle & bustle of city life & a stay in this resort away from home would be a nice change. Definitely will stay here again.So give it a go & you won't regret.

We stayed here in January for few days. I booked this resort by chance and it turned out to be great.
