We recently stayed 3 nights in a Deluxe Villa. By day, the place was amazing. Lots to do (swimming, massage, free kayaks and bikes, free yoga, etc.). However, by night, the creatures come out (into our room) and the lack of A/C becomes a huge barrier to sleep. In fact, we didn't sleep for more than an hour at a time for our whole stay. Not exactly a recipe for romance as we were expecting for our stay. There were huge lizards above our bed and other critters making strange noises and leaving droppings atop our mosquito net. The saving grace would have been falling asleep listening to the ocean, but the noise of the fan made this impossible. On the upside, the food was great, the staff were very helpful, and location was good right on the beach and within a short bike ride to other restaurants and shops. The island itself was fantastic. A great getaway from all the other over-touristy sites in Thailand. However, at this price point, we expected A LOT more. Also, we echo previous reviewers regarding the overpriced transfer service. Book your own for a third the price and save yourself the money.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more less
