|Summary of 3 reviews :||
Thaniza Beachfront Resort is a stylish resort positioned on the sunset side of the Haad Rin Peninsula, merely 15-minute walk from the venue of the internationally known Full Moon Party on the eastern beach. The superb resort lies about 15 minutes’ ride to the pier of Thong Sala where you can take the ferry to Samui Island and the mainland. Set amid the gorgeous lush tropical garden with a natural stream running from the mountain to the Gulf of Thailand, all well-appointed accommodation are artistically designed with simple elegance and fully furnished with ample amenities. Besides the stunning seaside settings, featured on-site are an internet café, relaxed beachfront restaurant, and travel booking service for bus, boat, and train journeys.
This was the worst place I have ever stayed. First, the room had sand fleas everywhere. Second, the owner physically assaulted me (literally punched me, a girl, in the face) when I tried to pay my bill by credit card (to which he had previously agreed). The staff is lazy and won t clean the room unless you specifically ask each day.
Booking service was great, hotel reservation was accurate.
Due to the lack of reviews available for Pimolsuph House, I vowed to post a detailed review regardless of what we thought of it, so forgive me if it s too long. Firstly, the only other review available was mainly about the taxi driver not being able to find it. To avoid having the same problem, we thought we arrived prepared with the name, street address, phone and fax numbers and a printout from Google Maps. However, it seems that the taxi and minibus drivers go by the resort name alone and the street address is inconsequential. No one seemed to have ever heard of it which now makes sense as although it is on the main road there is no sign on that road, only a sign saying House for Rent and the phone number. The most important information to remember in order to find it, is that it is across the road from Milky Bay Resort, a place that every taxi driver will know. Pimolsuph House is actually 4 completely separate and private houses built on a hill 200mtrs down the driveway behind the owners own home. We stayed in the highest house on the hill which we referred to as the tree house as it is surrounded by lush vegetation and lots of trees as they all are. Firstly, be prepared to climb lots of steep steps to get up there. Each house is extremely private. The lower level consists of one double bedroom with ensuite with cold water shower and a kitchen with a large fridge and a few basic appliances and utensils. Floors are tiled.Access to the top floor is by external stairs which are also very steep.Upstairs is a large balcony verandah with sea views, 2 double bedrooms with a large 2 way bathroom and a living area. As we had 7 people the owners supplied an extra double mattress on the living room floor and there was a timber table and chairs for 6 on the verandah. The only air conditioning is in one of the upstairs bedrooms with an extraction fan that sucks the air into the 2nd bedroom. All floors upstairs are polished timber. The houses seem quite new.The first thing we noticed was that the house was immaculately clean. The owner is very pedantic. Thick new towels were supplied but only 6 and when we asked for clean towels after a couple of days the owners had trouble finding any replacements other than their own from their house.All of the beds had a bottom sheet and lightweight throw only but as the weather was hot this was only a problem in the downstairs where the only cooling is a wall fan directly over the bed. You need to take your own soap, toiletries and toilet paper. The one drawback about the house was the distance out of town. All the action is in Haad Rin which is about a 10-12 minute motorbike ride over some quite challenging hills. I would recommend this place for a group of friends or family wanting to stay together for a small price but don t expect resort quality. A motorbike is best value transport although taxis drive past constantly to and from Haad Rin or Thongsala which is only a 5 minute drive away. Taxi fare to or from the house is 100 baht although some drivers will try getting more. The owners also take care of any laundry you would like done while there. There is a convenience store, several massage places restaurants etc right on the street outside. Remember most important thing is OPPOSITE MILKY BAY RESORT
The resort is nice and the location is close enough to all the action but quite quiet being about 15 min walk from the party beach in Haad Rin. The resort is family run and they seem to be very nice, however not everyone know what they are doing...We bought ferry tickets that were no good upon arriving at the pier. We were also promissed to be picked up by a taxi that never showed at 6am. Oh, and if you want your room cleaned you must ask LOL.
Bookisng service was great.
