The hotel is approximately 10 minutes from Patong by hotel shuttle bus but we preferred being by the large hotel pool that overlooks the ocean. Picking your soap and pillow on entry may be a pleasant touch and the 24 hour check in/out arrangement. The views from our room were astonishing and the infinity pool was so unwinding and brilliant. They have amazing astounding breakfast buffet. Thai, American, English - each items are available and the spread is huge and tasty. The 24 hour check in/out was definitely a bonus so that we can stay longer and enjoy the hotel facilities.
