The resort is pretty outdated, the shower head was caked in sediments and overall super basic cheap looking appliances. Also only one single outlet in the room (and not near the bed). I stayed at idyllic resort next door first (had to change resorts because I extended my stay on the island and there were no rooms left there), and the quality of stay was significantly better at Idyllic. Some examples:
1, When Anda resort figured out I was the only person staying in the room, they look away a set of pillows on the bed (seriously?)
2, They give you a beach towel card that allowed 1 towel a day, and you have to trade in your towel (going upstairs into the lobby to do so) to get the card back—they also charge 2000baht if you lose the plastic towel card.
3, They won’t help you set up the beach chairs (minor annoyance but idyllic helps and also helps you set up an umbrella) .
1, I had the beach front villa so the saving grace was the view and the porch was a very nice touch. That alone made the stay memorable. There is only 3 beach front villas so definitely book in advance!
2, The resort looks super cute walking through it.
3, The staff is friendly.
4, There are mosquito nets protecting the bed.
5, Idyllic and Anda are on the far side of sunrise beach so there aren’t as many boats parked in front of the beach as the other resorts.
