We stayed at shasa the first week of November. The respite was pretty quiet with not too many guests and we very much enjoyed the relaxation.
As many reviews mention, the resort is not close to any ‘city life’ but we found a regular taxi driver via a friend and he took us home from Lamai , chaweng and bophut several days. A regular taxi back from Lamai was 15usd-ish. We didn’t mind that.
For breakfast we had our own choice from the menu which we liked and then we’d take the hotel shuttle to Lamai or chaweng for the evening.
Staff were lovely, sometimes a challenge with English.
We would visit ShaSa again, it is a great place to catch some relaxation.
