Has anyone been to this resort - and if so any information on it please:
Looking at the website it looks absolulty stunning
Would like to know which tour operators go here and what kind of price we can expect to pay, also how much to upgrade to the rice barge accomodation.
Also what kind of prices would be be expected to pay for food & drink.
Can I suggest you price it all up yourself? It is easy to go DIY. I use Expedia to book the flights to Bangkok.
Book directly with Bangkok airways for the flight to KS. No need to keep checking prices for them as they stay the same
then book either directly with the hotel or try some other sites(tripadvisor has several you could try)
You may be very pleasantly surprised with the price.
I will be going in to see them shortly anyway and picking up a few brochures
thanx for all your help
I am not too sure how many bars and restaurants are nearby- may be worth checking as Chaweng itself is developing into a bit of a nightmare IMO. Far too overcrowded and not very Thai. We love the island but stay further north in Bophut. It has great restaurants and bars- but all on one road of converted wooden fishermen's houses.
If you do go to Imperial Boathouse and decide you hate Chaweng, take a songthaew to Fishermans Village one evening- transport is very cheap but don't take the first price!
For the next link look at local fishing and a busy pier( pictures 2 and 3). They are both Bophut as well!
We are not bothered about the loud bars & nightlife - would be more than happy on a tranquil peacefull complex with not much to do.
I would post another thread asking that question- there are quite a few Thai experts here.
By the way I have added to the last post. You will see why I like Bophut!
The hotel is pleasant enough of about 3star/4star grade. The converted rice barges are set in the middle of the hotel grounds. I have heard that the bedrooms on the barges can be a little dark so might be worth checking out if considering them.
