Hence we apologize if this occurred during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future. With Best Regards, Evangeline A.

Great Hotel, Fantastic Staff,

Start at the beginning, welcomed into the hotel by friendly staff, taken to our room on a golf cart, bags arrived literally 2 minutes later. Booked a room with a private plunge pool. Nice decor air conditioning and very clean. 4 complementary bottles of water a day, bed linen changed daily, mini bar well stocked and priced the same as the hotel bar., ( approx $4 for a bottle of local beer ). Take your pick of swimming pools ( 4 in total ). Breakfast was included in our booking, even the most picky eater would be spoilt for choice everything from cereal to made to order eggs or omelettes, pastries fresh fruit. Hotel is right on the beach which is nice and clean and not to busy when we were there ( Mid August). Every member of staff was friendly and helpful they really could not do enough for you. 5 minutes walk along the beach to fishermans Wharfe great kid friendly atmosphere plenty of shops and bars/restaurants all well priced with attentive staff. Strongly recommended. Also recommended is the day trip on the Red Baron to Koh Phangan. Again great staff and well worth it.

Great pools (4) for all ages. Beach front location

Pros: Hotel is very clean, gardens and the pools are well maintained. Great location close to Wharf. Amazing breakfast, good variety and changes daily.
Cons: Nice if they had AFL on TV but they tried to locate it so we could watch the semi's.
Location: Plenty of shopping at Wharf. Lots of water sports and diving activities. Boats to other island day tours. Friday night markets are a must.
Stayed here for 2 weeks. Enjoyed every minute of it. Had great fun with the staff, joked and enjoyed their service. TUK TUK ride to Chaweng is only a few dollars each. Lots to do if one want too. Hired taxi for 5 hours and travelled the entire island, saw and did what we wanted to. (seen one temple seen them all type of thing). Safari trips to jungle, go karting, jet skis its all there to enjoy. Had room close to main pool and swam early each morning before breakfast. Beach bar good for Happy Hour cocktails. Restaurant puts on several good nights and beach BBQ and free cocktail party once a week. Again good value. Visited the hotel next door we stayed at last time for a look and glad we chose a new venue. Would highly recommend Bandara Resort. No negatives - other than DONT get a room on the street side. Can be noisey.
