Top Secret

Once a week they do a movie night on the beach, who can think of a more romantic way to spend an evening!

Origins

The hotel has only been open since December 2018 and was immaculate, it is part of the Avani + range of hotels given its name because they are designed to go over and above what you would normally expect from a hotel and a holiday and, yes, they delivered on that promise.

 

The Review

The hotel is small and intentionally so, they want the guests to feel as if this is a home away from home, the staff were kind, friendly and thoughtful – always there if you needed help or had any questions. The atmosphere also added to this, it was relaxed and charming with a sophisticated feel, the perfect place to lie back and recharge.

 

The design and specifications of the hotel and the villas were truly outstanding, whilst the villa we stayed in wasn’t much larger than a normal hotel room it felt spacious and the layout and design worked perfectly for what we needed. I really can’t emphasise enough how spotless the entire hotel was.

 

Twice a week the hotel has an evening BBQ on the beach where you sit looking out over the ocean, watching the sun set whilst a live band provides the soundtrack, it is absolutely idyllic. The BBQ food was also exceptional and it just kept coming and coming until you asked it to stop (which was hard)! The hotel restaurant served food all day and it had a bit of everything whether you wanted authentic Thai cuisine or a cheeseburger – you could! They also change the menu every three months to keep it fresh. The breakfast was also the best I had during my whole trip in Thailand, whilst it was generally the types of food you would expect from a hotel breakfast, it was all the best version of those things (the croissants tasted like they had been picked up that morning from a French patisserie!).

 

The hotel takes all guests (free of charge) on a (half) day trip on an authentic Thai long tail boat to a small island where you meet the pigs that live on the beach. The spa and other facilities were also great and if you want a relaxing holiday of sunshine, beaches and good food you really wouldn’t need to leave the hotel, but if you do the staff are on hand to assist with planning your adventures or giving advice of the things that shouldn’t be missed on the island!

 

It really was a hotel that went above and beyond.
