This hotel is amazing! It has many amenities, including multiple pools, bars, and restaurants. Most importantly, it is a beachfront hotel right on Kata Noi Beach. We had a wonderful room in building 2 on the highest floor (3rd floor) with a large balcony looking out onto the sea. Our room was spacious, clean, and very well air-conditioned! The bathroom was wonderful with a shower/rainfall head option and separate tub.
We tried out the Thai restaurant and Seafood restaurant which had amazing food! The restaurants and bars also mix very well-balanced drinks. I always hate it when they over-sweeten cocktails, but these were done correctly with the right balance. Definitely order the coconut punch and pineapple passion cocktails which actually come in a coconut and pineapple! We tried one of the non-hotel restaurants across the street which also had good food (though, not as fancy), but the cocktails were horrible (way too sweet with little alcohol). The private restaurants are a bit cheaper, but I would personally stick to the hotel’s restaurants. Also, make sure to hit up the 7/11 to stock up on some beer and other drinks in your room’s mini-fridge. I am so happy this hotel does not stuff the mini-fridge with their own alcoholic beverages for purchase.
The only downside to visiting in May is that it’s formally the rainy season and the waves in the sea were quite rough. Three out of the five days were red flags for no swimming.
