The best place for a soulful getaway”

North Zen Villas, as tagged, is the perfect place for reviving the senses. There is not much to do when at North Zen but that is actually the point – the place lets you relax totally and forget all your problems for a while. The resort has a really awesome pool. It also has a restaurant with healthy food options which inspires you to shift to a healthier lifestyle. Further, the resort offers great massage with very good therapists. North Zen’s main attraction is the bamboo walk. You can either stroll or ride a bambike in exploring this feature which is amazingly surrounded by mangroves. A mangrove spa is also present and the boardwalk has a gazebo and a viewing deck at the end which is ideal for sunset viewing, stargazing, even daydreaming. North Zen, I must say, is like a second home. With its admiring interiors and finest furniture plus exceptional service and high class facilities, this resort is definitely what I need for a soulful getaway.

Ongoing construction - the hotel is not finished yet”

When you book a nice hotel like this, we expected a nice relaxing time in the spa and pool for the final days of our vacation. Unfortunately it’s a ongoing construction side! Ongoing hammering and loud noises all day. One time at the pool we were asked to leave, because they pumped out the water from the pool for the fountain. The Spa is not a Spa - it’s just a room with too Physiotherapist tables. Worst massage of my life. We felt like a test object , since the crew was not really in sync yet and we were the trial run. It was just a disappointing experience, at the last day of the check out they tried to rip us of due to miscalculation of the days we stayed. Could be a nice hotel in the future, but agoda should not offer this yet, only if the constant noise off jackhammering is ok with the customer.

Except the place is big. There are no advantages.”

Waiting for check-in is slow. I waited twenty minutes. The waiter was very unenthusiastic. No smiles and no drinks. The accommodation is also very modest. The mangroves in the hotel smell bad. It's a 15-minute walk to see the sea. Or ride a bike. Only five bikes are available for users. And both bikes had flat tires. A bicycle seat has no pads. Only steel wire. Breakfast is simple. About 390p per serving. Each person can only choose one for free. But not enough to eat. And bread and ham. And the restaurant staff service attitude is also very cold. Except the place is big. There are no advantages. No value for money. Very disappointed. But another hotel from the same company is fine. The restaurant is delicious to the service.
