not the standard of a 5 star resort

koh samui,maenam

this resort is on a lovely beach, with beautiful garden, what a shame they do not have a standard of a 5 stars resort. dirty rooms and terrasse, no tooth brush or tooth past provided in bathroom amenities, beach mattress with holes, food is good depending on what chef is there.( after 13 pm food is great ) Overall a bad and expensive experience.

Standards slipping

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Our third visit to the Rasananda & probably the last. We had high expectations once again due to our previous visits but sadly standards appear to be slipping. But first the good points, check in online was easy and we boarded the Speed boat from Samui which takes about 45mins. Our room was ready well before the 3pm check in time. Strangely we got the same room as we had the previous time, even though we didn’t request it. The room as ever is beautiful and very luxurious, no problems there. Sunbeds. There seemed to be confusion as to who had sunbeds reserved and who didn’t, we plopped on one only to be told it was reserved. Next day I went elsewhere on the beach looking for a bed, but all were reserved with room numbers on, but the pool guy told me I could have a bed with another number on, all very confusing. The pool guys weren’t up to their usual high standard with lots of untidiness around the sunbeds when quite obviously the people had long departed. Breakfast. Possibly the most disappointing aspect of our stay. We’d always thought the Rasananda had the best breakfast in all of the hotels we’ve stayed in. But it’s a poor effort nowadays, certainly compared to our previous visits, no buffet for the bacon, eggs, sausage etc you have to order those but go up for your bread and fruit juice. No Bloody Marys either for the hangovers which I thought was a great touch. The staff at breakfast also seemed confused as to these let’s say newish arrangements. The Spa. Whilst we didn’t use it this time, always found it overrated and too expensive, I noticed that they had treatments for children which I just thought of rather creepy, who on their right mind would let their child do this? Maybe it’s common, but I’ve certainly not come across this. Either way it’s just creepy. Overall a disappointing experience which stinks of the need to maximise profit.
