the Hotel itself was excelent: very nice staff, they booked for us the ferry for the next day to Ko Phangan.
Very new and clean bedrooms..Free Wifi!!!
The breakfast at first's floor café was delicious.
The bad point is that near there are just one seven eleven and another mini market, no restaurants available near the hotel. (the café at the hotel is open until 5 pm)
THE HOTEL MANAGEMENT HAVE TO PROVIDE TOURISM INFORMATION AND BROCHURE AND TOUR AGENTS INFORMATION AT RECEPTION COUNTER THIS CAN DONE WITH THE THAI TOURISM DEPT'S SUPPORT. YOU CAN GET THIS SERVICE VERY EASILY IN MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE AIRPORTS AND HOTELS. WHY NOT WANG THAI HOTEL CAN DO THIS. ARRANGE FERRY SERVICE TO KOH SAMUI. AND OTHER SIGHTSEEING TOURS.
TOUR AGENTS IS A PART OF HOTEL PARTNERS TO PROMOTE HOTEL BUSINESS.
it was a little difficult to find the place as most of the taxi and tuktuk drivers don't speak English. It would be good that a Thai version of the address is given. I had to get into a local travel agent to get the address translated. Got to the Resort without much hussel after that but I think a little over charge as I did not understand the conversation between the travel agent and the tuk-tuk driver.
The Resort is good ad well situated if you like a little walking which I love to do when I get to different countries. The shopping Mall, central Plaza, is within walking distance and the Night Market (weekly affair ?) is just a stone throw from the Resort. There all kinds of Thai cruisine is available and are cheap.
Over all I am happy with the location and the resort.
New, immaculate an tasteful bungalows with gorgeous outdoor showers and a delightful pool make this the nicest place I´ve stayed in Surat Thani.The food at the restaurant is really good too, and the staff are lovely. Don´t worry if the day staff don´t speak much English, the owner and his wife live on site and will be home in the evening and they speak English. It really felt ike staying with a famly here- the owner even drove me on his own moped to get a massage! The only drawback is it is out of the centre, but in Surat Thani does that really matter? If you want somewhere chilled and comfortable to wait for your onward transportation, I would recommend this place for sure.
This is my fourth stay at Serene Guest House and it suits my requirement as a transit point for getting to the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.
The hosts are very attentive and it's a pleasure to stay here.There are only two rooms and on every stay we have been the only guests and had the whole house to ourselves.
Highly recommend !
