Wunderbares Hotel - könnte nicht besser sein!

Pros: Das Essen und die perfekte Umsetzung von "Service"
Cons: Die meisten Gäste kommen mit Fahrer angereist und auch die sind verschwitzt (speziell im April). Ein nasses Tüchlein auch für die Fahrer wäre super!
Location: In der Nähe einer Turtle Hatchery (Fussdistanz)
Wir waren leider nur eine Nacht dort und wären gerne länger geblieben: Nick Buckingham hat hier ein Paradies an die Küste gezaubert und leitet es typisch britisch mit sympathischem Understatement. Dabei ist jeder Handgriff perfekt: Der Kellner schiebt den Gästen den Stuhl zurecht, legt die Serviette auf den Schoss und am Abend, auf dem Heimweg zum perfekten Zimmer, kommt der Angestellte mit der Taschenlampe und begleitet einem stilsicher zurück. Die Zimmer sind umwerfend: sehr gross, das Badezimmer ist im Aussenbereich (logischerweise nicht einsehbar), was dem Ganzen eine unglaubliche Romantik verleiht. Was uns besonders beeindruckt hat? Die Qualität des Essens (wunderbar!) und die Tatsache, dass wir jemanden hatten, der 24/7 für uns zuständig war. Hätten wir morgends um 3.30 ein Bier benötigt, hätten wir ihm telefonieren können und hätten es zweifelsohne gekriegt! Allerdings sind wir mit viel weniger zufrieden, weshalb wir das Angebot nicht annahmen, aber es hat uns beeindruckt!

Excellent stay in the lovely surroundings

Buckingham Place offered one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. The location is superb in amidst of the nature; you will see lots of birds, monkeys and peacocks. The beach is amazingly beautiful and you most probably see only couple of other people there. The rooms are stylish, spacious and are furnished in a minimalist way. And then about the food: everything from the breakfast to the dinner was outstanding and good-quality. It was pure joy to eat at the hotel which is not always self-evident. Service was exquisite by the whole staff. They were very helpful and nice in all occasions and really wanted us to enjoy our stay. We were delighted by their extra effort couple of times since it is quite rare to stay at the hotel where service appears to be so spontaneous. The sea by the hotel is too rough to swim so if you want to leave the lovely pool try the beach which can easily be reached by a tuktuk. Nice way to spend the day by swimming in an almost deserted beach! We wish all the good for the whole Buckingham Place staff (and the pony of course).
