This hotel is amazing. It is so clean - even Grandmaman would approve! The floors in our room are white shiny porcelain but they are always immaculate. The cleaners (who are all burmese) have slippers with polishers on the bottom. I remember Grandmaman wanted us to use the same. The well trained German guests all leave their shoes outside their rooms and put on slippers provided by the hotel! We have started doing the same. They have thought of everything and it has made these last few days perfect. We have enjoyed sitting in the lounge playing cards (there is a special felt mat for the table). We could also play chess (again on a special table) and backgammon.
We have managed to keep to our routine so far without any problems! We have discovered a lovely restaurant on the beach that serves the best green papaya salad with prawns of the whole trip. It is amazing the quality of the food that comes out of these very simple wooden huts.
