Honeymoon Visit Gone Wrong

Kingman, Arizona

I sit here in the airport contemplating our honeymoon stay at Pullman. Admittedly, my expectations were high. We sprung for the private pool villa with the Andaman Sea View. This was the hotel I was looking most forward to on our two week honeymoon in Thailand. So, let’s start with the airport pick-up. When we arrived, we followed the instructions of the e-mail we received and went outside to the Pullman representative. He claims we are not on his list. We insist we are. He then directs us to step to the side and began helping another passenger. We had confirmed our booking for a private luxury vehicle transport months in advance. I also confirmed a few days ahead. We stood in the heat for 15 minutes trying to get ahold of the hotel. When finally connected, the agent who answered said for us to go to the airport representative again and hung up. So, we went to him again and I said for him to call hotel. After a total of 30 minutes waiting outside, they finally got things straight and got us into our vehicle. When we arrived, we were surprised at the amount of deposit requested. They asked for 13,000 THB. Though, they did say that included our transportation fees and our romantic dinner we planned. After stating we simply didn’t have that much of a deposit, they allowed for us to bypass the deposit which was very helpful. They just kept our card in file. So, we get to the room which was on the furthest end of the resort. No big deal if you are capable of walking up and down sidewalks with slight inclines. But, for people who find it difficult to get around I’m not sure what they would do. Anyway, we walk into the room and it is just as pictured. The dramatic master suite with the large bathroom is breathtaking for sure! Beautiful room, quality bedding, and many extra comforts are provided. We were excited, until we got to the patio. The patio, with the pool smelt horrible. A mixture of sewage and seafood describes the smell well. We tried to get past the smell and decided to dip our feet into the pool as we sat on the ledge. That’s when things got worse. After a few moments, I decided to get up and go inside. The floor below the pool is so slick, that after just placing one foot on it ( one foot in stairs and one foot on floor) I slipped. I fell hard. I cut open two toes and scraped my ankle. I fell hard on my knee, causing it to be painful for the rest of my trip. My husband got out of the pool to help me and slipped too. We got first aid to our room to help bandage me up. As he fixed me up, he informed me that I should not get it wet for at least four days and that I should call him twice a day to come clean it and re-bandage it. So, for the four days I was at the resort, I was given instruction not to go in the water. Wow. Great start to a honeymoon. After the incident, we decided to go to dinner. At dinner we saw another person with a wrapped up ankle limping around. Certainly it couldn’t be for the same reason...could it? Well, we don’t know for sure, but we did ask the first aid guy if they have a lot of people get injured on their patios from the floor. He said yes! He said yes! Really? They know his is a problem and do not fix it. At least put a sign up to warn customers. So, other than the occasional unpleasant smell on the patio (I think it depended on which way the wind was blowing) the stay was pretty okay until the last day. Breakfast buffet offers a lot of variety. Though, food at all restaurants on property could only be called mediocre. On our last day, the resort did do a great favor for us by allowing us a late check-our as late as 8pm because our flight wasn’t until midnight. So, they definitely helped us in that way. However, we were disappointed when we found that our water wasn’t working and that a good majority of the villas lost water. The front desk said that the water was being worked on and wouldn’t be working for the next three hours. I understand that problems happen, however shouldn’t they warn guests? Toilets wouldn’t flush and no showers would work. No water. They did offer to take us to another room to go to the bathroom if needed. So, we wait out the water issue and decide to take a shower. The water comes out brown as we turn it on. The water did finally clear up. However, this is certainly not up to Pullman standards. Overall, the stay was equivalent to staying in a regular hotel. Nothing very special. Yes, the rooms are beautiful. Yes, the hotel has fantastic potential! We had WiFi problems throughout the stay. The staff seemed unapologetic with any issues we had while staying. When I asked if I needed to fill out an accident report for what happened, they said only if they need to take me to a hospital. One highlight was the spa. The spa was great. I had a sunburn and did their emerald wrap. It helped heal my burn. The women working there were very caring, understanding, and comforting. I appreciate them greatly. On our next trip, I probably won’t be staying at a Pullman. If I do, I won’t spring for the more expensive room, because I’m not sure if it’s worth it. Other last minute thoughts to add. We found the source of the smell - it comes from a compost pile next to our room for their garden. Pictured below. We were in room 8033. If you can, avoid that room. Also, we found many loose tiles surrounding the pool edge. We found these by leaning our backs against the edge and a tile shifting under the weight. Sadly, I wish we didn’t honeymoon here. They did do a sweet gesture on arrival by decorating our room. But overall the experience left us dissatisfied.

November in Panwa Bay

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

We thought November may be the wrong time to visit Panwa close to the end of the rainy season,but we were pleasantly surprised,one brief shower in 10 days was fine.The Hotel was acceptable without being outstanding breakfast food was good staff as always in Thailand helpful.On first appearance ther was little outside the hotel,a few restaurants and bars,special mention for the Small Bar one of the strangest bars I,ve ever drank in but walking for 10 minutes down to the sea front promenade we found street food and market stalls people sitting on the ground eating in groups and lots of bars and eating places.This was our favourite place during our stay and recommend it to any visitor.
