Exceptional with surprising shortcomings

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 28, 2018via mobile
We arrived late in the evening and tried to find the place with Google Maps, but the directions took us to a school at 7 km of the hotel (now corrected). Luckily one of the guards took his motorbike and drove us to the hotel. Very kind of him!

The hotel gives the impression of past glory and yes, it is in the middle of nowhere.

Very few customers (I would say 3 to 4 rooms). We preferred to go out for dinner.

On the positive side , the size of the room, the contact with nature, the kandscape, the infinite swimming pool surrounded by pomelo trees.

But some shortcomings are surprising in a 4-star hotel. The TV had only 4 channels in Thai (and not even the free one to see the World Cup match), no WiFi in the rooms (only in the lobby), decent (but not excellent) breakfast...

Anyway positive experience.

    The idea behind the resort (cave) is nicely used, adding to the natural landscape. The feeling of freedom is incredible. Food is good but not exceptionnal (special mention for the larb mu tot, one of the very best I tasted).

    The location is very beautiful, in the middle of nature. The swimming pool was great and quite big. Staff were helpful but not always very efficient. None speaks English fluently. The room was very spacious but a bit weird: you feel like you're in a bunker: grey all around. Still it has its charms - certainly the balcony that faces the pond. Great walks with many wild birds and interesting things to visit nearby: the panda camp, a Karen market, caves, waterfalls.

    On the negative side: the place needs an urgent revamp. Peeling paint on the outside, some outbuildings looking poor and it looks its age. No wifi except in the central area. Breakfast was uninspired. Staff speak no or little English.

    Nice hotel in the middle of no where. Big room with a nice view. Good service with a smile and always there when we need them. The only downpoints were the curtains and the wifi. The shower should have a rain shower connection. Food was excellent. Breakfast good but simple.. we will be back...
