The rooms are lovely, modern with a Thai twist, huge bathroom and bedroom area is large ca 40 sqm, all rooms have balconies and the beds are really comfy, the bathroom is quite open, being that it has wooden blinds leading in to the bedroom which gives the room a spa feeling when blind is open :). Located on the...

I arrived to a post wedding party at 11:00 pm Saturday night. Concierge was very helpful taking time to get me checked in and find friends at the wedding reception.

We were checked in while sitting on couches in the lobby. Everything here is very laid back. We were given a dark red drink during check-in, but no one explained what it was. Our room was on the ocean side. But what that actually means is it's on the ocean side of the street. This hotel is split into two...

We stayed at kandaburi for two weeks, we travelled to Thailand to meet my sister and her boyfriend who had been travelling and we paid for them to have a room on our second week as it was my 30 th birthday and as a treat for them to stay somewhere 'luxurious' as they usually stay in hostels. We intended...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. For the cost, it is good value for money.

My husband and I stayed here on the hillside room. We were okay with walking across the street to get to the beach. The pool is great and the rooms were very spacious. The resort is in a remote area and a bit far from the main area. The breakfast was really good and lots to choose from.

I recently stayed at the Kandaburi Resort with 4 other people for 5 days. Upon arriving to the hotel I did find the staff a little cold with their attitude (they also spoke VERY little English), as they told us to go to a room which was apparently 'reception' but looked more like an administration office, not to be viewed...

Service: The staff are overall friendly and helpful. Most of the staff smiled except one of the reception staff got a bit busy then showed us a grumpy face and feeling annoyed-look over our request. The flower arrangement I requested for the Valentine's day was set up brilliantly by the hotel. Room: We stayed at the hillside and got upgraded...

Great value for money .The resort is well maintained, absolute beach front, with exceptionally beautiful gardens and ponds. It covers two different areas, hillside and beach front. We stayed in a beach view room. It was very large with pool and sea views and very comfortable although the bed was a bit too hard for me. I did ask for...
