Hidden Gem

Fabulous Location, Beautifully restored old building with fine antiques, all bedrooms modern and stylish
We loved our stay, but were very surprised you could not buy wine to have with Dinner. The hotel should let guests know in advance there is no alcohol or bar facility at present. However, this was not a problem finally, as the Hotel TukTuk driver went to the supermarket to bring us some gin and tonics... They are constructing a new annex by the pool area and this will not be ready by Christmas. The hillside jungle garden is beautiful, and the concert of jungle sounds at night is memorably unique, with fire-flies twinkling in the bushes adding to the unique atmosphere. We would definitely come back for a longer stay.

Quiet, good air and view.

Value for money, but a little run down.

Good staff, lovely location, good food
The resort could be very good but it falls short on some levels. It has a lovely pool but poor pool furniture, it has lovely rooms but our hot water was not working, it has lovely staff. It could do with some nice touches, such as putting water in the fridges and a kettle in the room and soap in the soap dispensers. Kushan the manager is lovely and really tries.
