Is the beach in front of the hotel now restored? It was badly eroded when we last visited in 2013.
Also is the restaurant to the left of the hotel open again?
Beach is much cleaner now.
Peppina , a pizza place is there now.
Yes, the beach is restored although not sure how long it will last.
The restaurant is now a pizza place. Very nice but quite pricey
Yes the beach was completely restored mid of last year. It is even wider than the original one.
Regarding the restaurant; standing on the beach looking at the sea from the hotel; the restaurant on the left side is long gone; however there are 2 restaurants on the right, the further one is one of the best seafood places in the region. The hotel offers "Peppina on the Beach" a branch of the famous italian restaurant in Bangkok. I've tried last December and it was really good.
