ACCESS, VILLAS, RESORT

We are a small resort, we only have two rooms, we have 4 people in the staff they have various mission but of course cannot be standing at the bar or the restaurant all day for 4 guests this is why our bar and restaurant is private and on request before 2pm same day for the dinner at the restaurant and the day before for the bar. Our place has this price because people come for the nature and the location as well as our one of a kind choice of excursions and experiences we propose from our partners. The latter are exclusive to our resort and unique in Asia ! Our resort is in the nature, with lush plants, animals and insects this is why it is amazing to stay with us. It is pure and untouched, The living rooms, bathrooms, gardens, bar, restaurant are open on the nature. The resort is only accessible by foot down a nature trail, with soil, small rocks, roots, it is beautiful and short only 5 minutes down and 7 minutes up. There is no light at night to protect our monkeys as they sleep at night and do not like to be disturbed but we provide flashlights.  If you do not like insects or nature or you are allergic to it is always possible to cancel 24hours or 48hours after your reservation we will do our best, just contact us at hello@s-sowk.com or contact your online agency : Booking.com. Airbnb, etc … and inform them that you would like to cancel your stay with us they will contact us and we will accept to refund you without any fees. We understand people might not be used to nature anymore, we understand that you may want to stay in a more closed, sealed resort. We want you to have the best vacation ever ! If there is any insects we will do our best given availability and time of the day to assist you to remove any unwanted friends. The bedrooms are perfectly sealed from the outside. However, if a window is left open you may have for example a harmless small gecko that slid in, there is no worries to have. They will remove the insects and be quiet, they are not harmful at all nor dirty. We do our very best from the construction of the house to non-chemical traps to keep the insects at bay for example the mosquitoes but we cannot kill the entire nature (as some past guests expected) as we are here to protect it as all is useful in Nature and it is in great danger putting us in danger as well in the very short term. What we want to say by that is that our resort is really for nature lovers and people open to Thai traditions and meeting with locals. If it is not your goal in your vacation we totally understand and will do our best to find the best hotel for you and if possible always ask for a total refund so there is no worry for you. Have a great time on Koh Phangan ! We recently received threats for money against bad reviews while customers said they have the best time and service and requested this only for money, this an attitude that will not be accepted and acceptable at our place and it will be immediately referred to your online or travel agency.
