“We stayed for a week at Golden Buddha Resort at the beginning of December. Despite a lot of wet weather we had the most fantastic time. It is impeccably run which can’t be easy considering they choose to employ people from the island who don’t have previous hotel training plus the beauty of the resort is that nature is a big part of it. The houses are beautifully designed out of teak with open air sitting areas overlooking the sea and open bathrooms. Bugs are part of the experience!
We stayed at Baan tao tanu. A lovely house for the 2 of us and it was the perfect honeymoon stay. It was close to the club house where we had opted for full board food which was divine. I lived in Thailand for 3 years and this was by far my best eating experience. Everyday the menu changed. All of the coconut in their cooking is from fresh coconuts on the island. They don’t cut any corners and so you get the authentic taste of Thai food. Having said that though their roast vegetable salad was out of this world. I could have eaten it every day. Their betelnut wraps were also one of my faves.
Saturday night they laid on a fabulous buffet which started with cocktails on the beach.
They made my husband a delicious heart shaped chocolate cake for his birthday.
We went to yoga class several times. The teacher was excellent and able to teach various levels in the class. We spent the rest of our days walking the stunning deserted beaches, reading, playing board games, having excellent massages and relaxing.
This resort is stylish, relaxed, professionally run with extremely friendly staff who seem like one big family ( and probably are) “
