Pandora Lifestyle Bungalow on Samui - Flintston Cave

I arrived on Samui literally a couple of days before the New Year and there was no wide choice of hotels. I wanted to live on Chaweng in the thick of things before I go on retreat. In the pictures on the reservation site to meI liked the hotel with an interesting interior in the form of concrete niches in the rooms. Without thinking, it was him that I booked. When you often stay in hotels, it sometimes pulls you to try something unusual.

Price and reservation

In peak season 1,800 baht / day for a standard bungalow in Pandora Lifestyle

. Junior Suite 3,000 baht, and a family bungalow in general 4,300 baht. Standard in off-season costs 1100-1300 baht. As elsewhere, prices fall almost 2 times. I lived in a standard bungalow.

At first they seemed to want to move me somewhere inanother place, or a higher class, or, conversely, a lower one, since there were no free places. But everything settled by itself and I did not have to move anywhere. So do not believe those who say that during the peak season everything is free and there are places everywhere. Yeah, ten times.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

For example, here is a direct link to the hotel: Pandora lifestyle

Interior

If we talk about housing itself, then, on the onehand, it's pretty ordinary. A room of normal size, a good soft mattress, a separate sofa and a desk where the laptop can be put, all kinds of shelves, a large bathroom.

But, on the other hand, the room has a certain concrete design, lights in different colors above the bed ... I don't even know what to call this style. Caveman? :) For some reason, the Flinstown home reminded me, if you remember such a cartoon. But it is better to look at the photos, so it will be clearer.

It seemed to me, despite the fact that the hotelpretty cute, he's a little tired already. But it seems just because of this concrete design is not so noticeable. Whether actually “cave” styling was originally made slightly old. Honestly, the rating is too high (8.3), I would put less, somewhere 7.5-8.

Exterior

Small bungalow type hotel. But the bungalow is not separate, but connected to each other, such a townhouse turns out to be one-storied. Arranged in a circle around the pool and restaurant. All rooms have one glass wall and it is the door to the outside.

I would like to say that he is quiet and calm ... Yes,it may be so, but due to the fact that the territory is very small and everything is rather compact here, any conversations can be heard - in the neighboring rooms, in a restaurant, by the pool. For example, while I am writing these lines, the neighbors are sitting on the street near the entrance to their room and are watching a Chinese series on the phone. And everything is heard perfectly (5 meters to them). But in fairness, I note that in the evening and at night it was quiet.

The territory itself, although quite small,very cozy. Despite the Thais' love to roll everything into concrete (this hotel is no exception), somehow it looks very much so. Especially greenery is also missing, for example, the glass wall of my bungalow was partially covered with shrubs. In fact, the owners have a nice nook and corner.

Breakfast is included in the price and it is so-so (whensuch a room price). Lipton tea (but okay this is the case everywhere), and only instant coffee. Buttered toast and jam toasts, a little bit of fruit, even less vegetables, 7-11 yogurts, and muesli with milk. It is good that cereals and oatmeal are also offered, and not just corn. It happens in simple hotels that only corn, and I do not really eat them. From the hot, you can choose 3 positions (see picture). In general, everything is modest. But in the restaurant they feed well, I ordered several Thai dishes, delicious.

But with the location of the hotel all is well. Near 7-eleven and Famaily Mart, across the road is Chaweng Beach, and that part of it, which is with breakwaters, so there will always be a quiet and calm sea. Near massage, restaurants, cafes, after all, this is the most tourist street on the island. And if you walk 10 minutes you will find yourself in the very center of Chaweng (the hotel is like from the edge of the district) and nightlife. Also about 20 minutes walk to the Central Festival shopping center.

Decent hotel on Chaweng (Samui). Near the beach (its small part) and the entire infrastructure is also close. It is also called Pandora Resort Hotel.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
