Thavorn was our first stop on our two week honeymoon. The reception and hospitality perfectly welcomed us - the staff were outstandingly friendly, such that we felt welcome and comfortable. Two staff members, in particular, who made our stay even more enjoyable, were Pie and Andy. These two engaged us in genuine conversation during a Friday evening manager's reception. They took a sincere interest in us as individuals, and ensured we always had what we needed. Thank you, PIe and Andy.
Throughout the entire resort, staff members were similarly welcoming and put forth their best service. In hindsight, this was particularly appreciated after staying at multiple resorts in Thailand. The staff, facilities, amenities, and location were superb.
We particularly enjoyed our time at Chann Spa, where we enjoyed both an oil massage (60min) and traditional Thai massage (60min). The first was included in our reservation (the honeymoon special), a perk of booking direct through the resort. The second we couldn't resist after the enjoyable experience, which includes tea before and after the pampering.
Other perks of booking direct, which we particularly enjoyed, include:
1.) the buffet breakfast of various Thai and western fare;
2.) access to a VIP lounge with hot coffee/tea, cold beverages, and snacks;
3.) shuttle bus to Patong Beach;
4.) airport transfer; and
5.) a romantic beachside dinner (also part of the honeymoon special)- which was rained out in a severe monsoon with very high winds (the grounds were littered with downed tree branches the morning after). Despite the wind and rain, we still enjoyed our meal inside, which consisted of a set Thai menu of multiple courses - too much food for two of us, but it was very delicious!
Our hillside room, accessed via a quaint cable car system, was perfect for honeymoon privacy. We enjoyed our view of the sea and jacuzzi tub from the balcony as we sipped sparkling wine and ate Ferrero Rochet chocolates (perks of the honeymoon package). In all, we feel we received great value from our time at Thavorn, and recommend the resort to anyone looking for a quiet, secluded getaway (with the ability to party in Patong after a 15 minute shuttle ride).
Thank you, Thavorn and staff!
We loved Thavorn and its staff!
