Hello! I also spent a few days in this hotel, and it definitely is a marvel. It is true that there are better hotels in Puhket, with bigger stores and more services, of course. The value for money of this hotel is great. It is far away from the groups of people, with an almost exclusive beach and magnificent surroundings. I recommend it to you all totally. As you organize your own journey to Thailand, you're also right in saying that you have no problem. At first it takes some adapting to get used to their pace, and language is very difficult, but it is worth trying to learn a few phrases because it opens many doors closed to other "farang".
