Our visit started well and just felt better and better. Easy to find, easy parking. Helpful reception, then a very elegant and welcoming lounge. Touches of ? Thailand in the decor (Kees’ wife’s influence, I guess). When we walked into our room and saw our outlook over the lagoon (and from the balcony, a sea view too) it confirmed we’d found an absolute gem. The room and facilities were spotless, WiFi great. Breakfast buffet fresh and varied, and the hot food excellent (eggs Benedict, yum). Thanks to Kee’s welcoming chat, we found great things to do. But it was also wonderful just to walk out of the front of the hotel a few steps down to the beach.The Lemongrass restaurant did us proud in the evenings. Hoping to book again next year.
