So, we've stayed at the resort for a couple of nights and that came after 4 nights in Koh Phangan and afterwards we stayed 4 nights in Bangkok. First things first, we loved the view from our room, it was the most amazing one we had in our entire trip. The room looked wonderful and having a shower that is basically outside was a really nice addition.
However, the main thing that we've noticed compared to the other places we've been to, is how less friendly the staff was. We arrived at the resort around 3pm, and while the lady at the reception was very professional, it felt like she just wanted us to be away from her. On the second night we also had a less pleasant interaction with her. One more thing we had a little problem with, it felt like whoever designed the place thought about almost everything, but skipped the little details. for example, since the pool villa is exposed to the winds, it's necessary to close all the doors, but if there are 2 of you, whoever locks the door on his side, prevents the other from entering the room (can only be locked from one side, no key or something like that) and a few more examples that slip my mind at the moment. And lastly, on our last day, we decided to take the breakfast from the restaurant, since we needed to get to the 9:30 ferry, that was a mistake. While the breakfast we had on the previous day (in the room) was very nice and tasty, the one in the restaurant felt like a waste of time. The food was pretty tasteless and the staff at the restaurant was very inhospitable.
So taking into factor that this was the most expensive place we've been to in our 10 nights trip, I wouldn't recommend it for the price we paid, especially after meeting the staff at the other places we've been to, and how nice and friendly they we're..
