Currently staying at Sandalwood.
This is my first time in Thailand as I've never fancied the flight from the u.k.
Decided to break the flights with a stop in Dubai on the way out and on the way back.
On the way out we stayed at one of the "world's top resorts". And that was admittedly fantastic.expensive, but fantastic.
Then we got here.
Never entered accommodation before where I've wanted to cry, as I'm an old cynic. This place has that effect. The view is absolutely the most beautiful thing, overlooking the forest and the bay at lamai/ chaweng.
The accommodation is better standard than Dubai (bouganvillea pool villa) and is at the top of the hill, hence the view.
Spacious, cool and beautifully decorated throughout with 3 terraces and a gorgeous infinity pool looking out.
Both owner and staff are the nicest and most helpful people ever. Nothing is too much trouble and above and beyond is the norm. You are fetched and carried everywhere and the mobile phone issued by the hotel is a godsend if you are out late( ring and they send a car).
The world's a small place now and we try to not return to the same place twice. But if we return to ooh Sami it will only be to Sandalwood.
Best stay anywhere, ever.More
