          Idyllic Place”
          The value for money was phenomenal at this place. It is clearly changing ownership and due to this there was some construction which I assume accounted for the very discounted rooms. However, the service was great and you could not hear the construction when on the beach and it did not continue in the evening. Overall a fantastic stay.

          No matter how much they try they still fall flat in just about everything re the service industry, the renovations to the bungalows is taking far to long to complete so it does not give the resort a good look, also the prices have gone up 5 fold for the beach front it is way tooooo much for the current situation. The Wi Fi is almost non existant along with the TV which both you are paying for but not getting, no ways good enough..

          Uninspiring hotel and lack of customer service”
          Quite place...
          My experience of Arayaburi Boutique Resort was an uninspiring hotel with no vibe, average rooms/villas - a bit run down and a staff not understanding the customer service concept making you not feel very welcome. The English level of the staff was too low compared to other hotels I visited in Thailand.

          DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY”
          Ok beach
          We booked a beach front villa for a treat for 5 nights on arrival the front desk staff was uninterested with sour demeanour. Tired after our trip I went to have a shower,bathroom was mouldy & smelt,on lifting the valve to change from bath to shower whole marble plate lifted up. Then I saw that there was blood stains on the bed linen. I rang the reception they said they would tell house keeping but no one came to change the linen. On finding that there was no where to eat other than the hotel we decided to go into Chaweng. They have a shuttle for 100bht per person one way I was happy to pay for us to go in but only shuttle back wasn't until 10.30. We wern't sure how long we wanted stay we were told that if we didn't pay for return before we left there was no chance of us getting a shuttle back. Next morning at breakfast the buffet there was very little food & quite a few people in the restaurant,they had an egg station with menus so we assumed that was the breakfast. On the menu was fried rice but when we asked if we could have some they said there would be an extra charge. We ordered eggs,when cooked it was placed it on the buffet. We were not even told they were ready let alone served to the table! Although I paid upfront for 5 nights I started to search for other accommodation so we could at least enjoy the rest of our holiday. The final straw,next morning at Breakfast they still had very little food 2 cocktail sausages &little cereal at 9even though breakfast didn't finish until 10. We asked if they could cook more food but you would have thought I was asking for them to squeeze water out of the stones. A couple of other people arrived & finally they cooked more food. We decided to move to other accommodation where we felt welcomed. The beach itself is quite nice but they have private catered parties on there & limits the privacy that they advertise plus there is construction next door,no serenity of quiet beach frontage. Anywhere is better than this place

          Below standard”
          remote location, mature vegetation
          To summarize my stay... one disappointment after the other. The resort villa's must have been decent 10 years ago but nothing has been done since. Outdated interior, worn down plumbing, same goes with the pool, the deck chairs, the surrounding buildings... In desperate need of refreshment or at least a lick of paint. Pools are over chlorinated, after one dip in the pool you smell like chloride all day... Breakfast is poor and I had the impression that bread and croissants were recycled from previous days... Even I had the breakfast included, as to not spoil my day, I went to have breakfast outdoors... Please, do not be mistaken by the pictures of this resort, they date from years ago and do not represent the actual state of the resort nor the room accommodations. Acoustics between adjacent rooms is poor and with the flimsy windows you charge the noises all around... The beach is nice but there are many rocks and when swimming or getting into the water, you end up with bruised feet or knees. On top of everything the whole site is surrounded with construction sites and just take any charm of the remote a quiet location down the drain. To be avoided... you will find better value anywhere else but here. Never again.

          Location, breakfast seaview, room design
          Globally a good memory for the new eve party, but for the rest, expect the nice room and good remote and quiet location, the beach is really not cleaned by the staff which remove all the potential magic of this place, and made us finally enjoy during day time chaweng beach instead... We have been to other remote hotel beach frontage in other part of the island and we really had a real good time, with better staff, services and even a bit cheaper. Also, poor English of the reception, and keep passports for the whole duration of motorbike renting, so you cannot use it for other activities... Otherwise staff not really acommodating, except nice staff for breakfasts. We would instead go to a 3 or 4 stars hotel directly on Chaweng beach.

          Location, Beach, Staff
          I stayed here with my daughter and my friend's family and we had a great time. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially KookKai on the front desk. The location was outstanding, it's away from the crowds and so the beach was fantastic once you swam out past the coral which isn't hard to do. If you want shops and nightlife and can get quite expensive in taxis getting into Chaweng but if you're happy just to relax them it's a perfect spot. We stayed in a beach front villa and it was definitely worth the extra money to have a view of the bay every morning. The food in the restaurant is acceptable, unfortunately it's been de-spiced for western tastes. I would recommend staying here for sure..

          Arayaburi is an awesome romantic resort due to its location. Extremely peaceful and secluded from the main city areas. The beachfront villa we stayed in, was absolutely wonderful. But, one must be prepared for the fact that most of the staff would not understand English properly. Still, they are extremely helpful. Buffet breakfast was good with some veg options.

It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and walk out the door to swim in the pool. The buffet breakfast was great and the staff were so friendly. I slept like a dream....comfy beds!
