Peaceful, a world apart

“The fact that the long tail boats with their load motors are not allowed up to the hotel is the first idea one gets that this place places importancce on the wellbeing of its visitors. About 500 yards away, a one legged rower steps on board from a boathouse to bring us to the jetty. Here we were met with an ice cooled towel and drink. Our bungalow was stunning, the bathroom huge, actually it was three rooms, a large one with two washbasins leading to a room with a bath looking out into a small walled garden in which there was a blissful outdoor shower. I enjoyed this so much that I showered twice a day during our stay.In the room they had thought of everything, including binoculars and a bird watching book. The mini bar was stocked with complimentary soft drinks, alcoholic ones were of course not included. Supper was superb, one more of less ‘has’ to eat here as one cannot get away but the standard of the kitchen is fantastic. I had divine butter fish steamed in ginger which could not have been more delicious and my brother had green Thai curry. We sat outside and there were blankets for when it got chilly. Breakfast was just as good, everything imgainable was on offer and the banana cake was so morish that I asked for the recipe which was given to me. We also took advantage of the beautiful Spa which was excellent. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and on our last night we found a package with the typical shoulder bag of the area in it and a note thanking us for staying. This place was an oasis of calm, the concept is perfect.

Stayed February 2017, traveled with family”
