First trip to Thailand...... definitely not the last !

Suffolk, United Kingdom

Just returned from the best two week holiday we have ever had, this hotel is amazing in every possible way. Yes it’s a 2 hour drive from Phuket airport but you get to see so much of the countryside so didn’t mind it to be fair. The hotel is set with the most fantastic view of the Beach which in itself is like a walk in paradise, couldn’t have asked for a better setting , and listening to other people from different hotels we had an exceptional stay. We went All Inc,and did not, could not get bored of the food if you tried, you get to eat off the Al a’carte menu which has a great choice of both traditional Thai cuisine and Western menus , the buffet at breakfast has a great choice and buffet in the evenings are really good. We had a Deluxe sea view room , gorgeous ! The bathroom was huge, massive deep bath, gorgeous shower and loads of storage space, double wardrobe and enough drawer space . They even had umbrellas in the wardrobe as it’s the end of the rainy season and you do get a bit wet ( but it doesn’t ruin the holiday ) when you get a little shower. And you get a free beach towel service , the towels are replaced every evening. The hotel puts on a free shuttle bus to Khao Lak and into Bang Niang so if you want to try street food in the markets you can which is really cheap and delicious, the Banana pancakes on the market are a must try ! The staff in the hotel can honestly not do enough for you, they are all really friendly . A big shout out to Nanny, Nana and Saira in the lounge bar, great girls and always smiling, Nin and Lert and Kes in the pool bar, best Daiquiris in the world ! Wat in the gym, thank you for keeping the other half entertained, he loved it . Tanya and Mol in reception, these girls cannot do enough to help you with any requests. What did I like best ?..... Everything ! What did I like least ?...... Coming home ! Everyone should go to Thailand at least once in their lifetime.

Great Hotel, Relaxing Week

Telford, United Kingdom

Had a week at the Bangsak Merlin - returned home yesterday and how i wish i was still there. The transfer is about 1.5 hours from the hotel which is the only downside to the whole holiday - but when you arrive you are warmly welcomed and given a refreshing drink. Hotel is gorgeous, fresh, modern and the rooms are large, well thought out and designed well. There are plenty of pools to choose from on the resort if the beach and sea is not your thing. We loved the pool bar and was able to swim up and enjoy a refreshing beer or cocktail. We went all inclusive and have got to say the food and drink were excellent, with a choice of Thai and western dishes available. Cocktails are plentiful and skillfully made by the bar staff. But what made this holiday so special were the staff...they were fantastic, friendly, always smiling and willing to help at all times. Saira in the lounge bar and Thamat at the pool bar were just two of the wonderful staff ( apologies if not spelt your names 100% correct ) Big thumbs up from us both and will be back ( Garry & Becci 4311 )
