We checked in kind of late (~8pm) and was offered an upgrade by Susee & Jasmin of the front desk. I think I booked a sea view villa, and was upgraded to a beachfront suite overlooking the pool and the ocean. The room is HUGE – about 12m X 9m (or 36ft X 27ft), with a 13m X 5m (or 39ft X 15ft) private semi-surrounding balcony. The bed is huge too – the big bed is composed of two full-sized beds (instead of the normal king which is two twin-sized beds); plus the rollaway for my daughter. There’s also a huge Jacuzzi (although the bubble jetting mechanism didn’t work, rendering it to just a big round bath tub), and endless cabinets. Later when we walked through the hotel grounds, we saw from the French windows of other villas that the rooms were generally large (with sparse furniture) at this property. Klong Muang being so isolated and quiet, there are not many other businesses within walking distance. We had some meals at the hotel, and the food quality was similar to those all-inclusives at Cancun. That is, the food was edible, but not particularly well made. For breakfast I mostly just stuck to fruits and pastry. If you eat on the beach for dinner, beware of mosquitos. Being close to Christmas, there were live music some nights, but they did end promptly at 10 pm. The infinity pool is pretty to look at. Note though that the water is not heated. And we couldn’t figure out how to get the jet going within the circles, although we did see one of them went on for a while.
