Beautifully designed hotel, nothing missing in the room. The pool is also very nice with a bar next to it. Pretty quiet in the hotel and at the same time very close to the Chaweng center. Not the newest hotel and wasn't perfectly clean but good enough.

After reading previous reviews here in TripAdvisor I hesitated a bit,...but went for it based on the location (ideal!) and the discounted price (approx 100 euro per night incl. tax). Had I paid a higher rate, I might have been disappointed. It's a nice hotel but no 5-star resort. The rooms were great with THE BEST WI-FI INTERNET I ever...
