Husband booked the WOW package directly with the hotel, includes welcome drink, fruit basket, dinner and a massage. Massage was amazing, dinner was OK and you can choose when you want them.

So we did just that and were shown what we had booked which was quite small especially the pool/outdoor area. We were then shown...

I had no interested in being near the craziness of places like Patong. The under developed area of Bang Tao served us perfectly. It was within a short walking distance of the local supermarket as well as a few restaurants - but not many. Perfect for a getaway when you don't want a lot of hustle, bustle and noise.

I would like to say firstly that our Villa was very nice and modern and reasonably clean, but I think it’s really deceptive to describe The Residence as a resort. It is a collection of timeshare villas where when you walk around, there is a single concrete lane with Villas both sides and for me it had the feeling of...
