It's close to the Surin beach, just 5 mins walk from the lobby. 7-11 and family mart nearby the beach. You can buy anything there.
We had late check in at mid night. Arranged pick up from the airport. Staffs are really nice and helpful! We forgot to bring adapter and borrow from the resort.
We stayed in 2 places in this trip, AYARA is wonderful! Would go back next time!
Btw, the resort sent my boyfriend an free massage birthday card! It's really sweet!
“Nothing much to do...”
Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. Requested for free upgrade of room and late checkout due to my flight timing, but both requests were rejected. Not sure why they were rejected, as all we saw were about 10 couples or less who were staying in the hotel, and there were 48 rooms altogether.
Room was ok, with a whirlpool. Whirlpool was not working initially, but the staff managed to fix the problem.
Nothing much near the hotel, except for a few mini-marts and beach clubs.
Went for happy hour at the restaurant. While I was there, happened to see the waiter preparing an ice-blended drink for someone else. The waiter took a spoon to taste the drink, put the same spoon back into the drink, stirred the drink and tasted it one more time. He did not stop even though he noticed I was looking.
