We were initially recommended the Siddharta Hotel’s sister hotel, the Pavilion. Since it wasn’t available, we stayed here hoping for the best (we were a little hesitant but didn’t know too many hotels in the area). I rate it 4 stars out of 5 – the room was a decent size, the hotel was a cozy size, and the service was cordial. I did go back and forth with the manager about the rate and the amenities included with the rate (I was told I was getting a special deal at 10% off, but this sale price was already listed on the website!) But the hotel was very gracious and threw in a free massage for both of us as part of our stay. Always ask about the best rate and what kinds of services can be included with your rate (don’t be afraid to share if it is a special event as well!)
We got the honeymoon suite at the hotel. The room wasn’t huge, but well sized with a small couch/living area. Fresh fruit and water was supplied daily. The swan shaped towels were cute.
We encountered courteous service from every staff member that we encountered. They all spoke English (our Tuk Tuk driver less so, but he still understood us) and were friendly and warm.
The rate for the honeymoon suite for $90/night in August. This included a free Tuk-tuk driver for each day and breakfast daily (more on that below – yum!) As I mentioned above, I also negotiated and got us free massages as well. Who doesn’t like a massage right?
The property was a cozy size with most rooms overlooking the pool in the center. The room and facilities were in good condition. We didn’t get to use the pool but it was neatly nestled between palm trees and guarded by stone lions.
We loved the restaurant because the breakfast had a great variety. There was fresh fruit and a nice variety of bread and jams. But we loved that they made eggs to order as well as full plates of fresh fried rice or noodles. It was a nice way to have a filling breakfast before trekking out to the temples.
