Endless blues of the beach. And, the king's breakfast at the hotel. Awesome.
Excellent Hospitality and Nice location with a private beach...Food was excellent and friendly staff. I loved it.
Excellent location as a beach resort. Very friendly staff. Great accommodation.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Rooms were big and clean. The food in the restaurant was very nice and the staff was very friendly. Hotel was right at the beach and the beach was nice and clean. We went there for diving and the hotel was in walking distance from the diving shop we used.
Pool wasn't the greatest but it was ok. No beer in the minibar.
Excellent service, fantastic buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner, good pool. right on the empty beach!
Not nearly enough wardrobe space!
Nice sandy beach. Can enjoy sun rise & sun set. But little expensive compare to same class of hotels.
The venue was amazing, quiet and secluded with a lovely beach.The staff were very friendly, warm and helpful making you feel like home. The manager was also very helpful and communicative.The hotel was very clean. The ambiance was relaxing and very positive.The breakfast was nice and the food tasty. The bar was our favorite place and very connected to nature. We were there for 8 days so it definitely was a great experience.
It was only one guest who created a big ruckus for all of us, guests as well as hotel staff. But the staff handled it very well and had him check out the very next morning.
staff were very helpful and friendly and location by beach was perfect
rooms were quoted as deluxe but more suited to a standard room and none overlooking the sea apart from the suites. Standard size rooms. website gives wrong impression. Not value for money compared to other hotels of similar standard in the country. When coming to pay we wanted to use some US$ but hotel accountant gave us an extremely bad conversion rate and also charged 3.5% on top which given the fact that we had stayed 7 nights and spent a lot of money, thought was way over the top. He was also extremely rude and the staff were embarrassed in front of him. The Manager is also starting to build an eco hotel near Kantale, but is clearing the jungle and putting up electric fences to keep out elephants from their natural migration routes, so I don't think eco comes into it!
Although it was the rainy/windy season and swimming in the ocean or boating were not possible, we nonetheless were able to enjoy the cooler weather for walking and sightseeing. A good size pool at the resort was fine for swimming. Staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the Christmas eve dinner organised for all the guests. The location and the fact that the resort is not too large made it a quiet and relaxing spot to get away from it all.
The directions from the highway are fine but the fact that there is no name board at the front of the resort made us a little unsure as to whether we were in the right place when we arrived.
Nice and clean rooms Wonderful restaurant with a good price Very professional staff Boat tour to Pigeon Island and snorkeling
