Review of The S Tara Grand Hotel

S Tara Grand Hotel Surat Thani

The S Tara Grand Hotel is medium-sized hotel conveniently located near the centre of Surat Thani City. It has 3 and a half stars and comfortable rooms. The hotel includes a restaurant and spa. Customer service is good and people have found very little to complain about the S Tara Grand Hotel. If you are looking for a hotel for one night this hotel is a good option.

The hotel itself has 80 rooms. All the rooms are recently re-furbished in neutral tones. They are all a good size. There is a choice between double and twin beds. There are also a few family suites with connecting rooms suitable for sleeping 4 people. All rooms feature air-con, hot water bathroom (with shower and bath), wifi, cable TV, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar.

Near Central Plaza

The S Tara Grand Hotel is next to the Central Plaza shopping mall. Here you will find a good range of shops and restaurants. If you are travelling further south or to the islands this a good place to stock up on a few travel essentials.

European Hotel Style

The hotel feels like a standard European hotel. It has not attempted any Thai interior design flourishes and any bright splashes of colour as cheap places attempting to be ‘boutique’ are apt to do.

Unlike many mid-range Thai hotels the TV has a good range of Thai and English-language channels to choose from.

Facilities

The S Tara Grand Hotel has a restaurant downstairs. It serves mostly Thai food. The breakfast is a Thai style buffet. Namely it has a range of dishes to try as well as eggs and toast, cereal and coffee. You won’t get anything resembling a full English breakfast but the food is well prepared and plentiful and a good chance to fill up before heading on.

The hotel doesn’t have a swimming pool but it does have a spa. They offer Thai massage, facials and aromatherapy. The spa is clean and the staff are skilled. The décor, however, doesn’t transport your imagination to scenes of tropical bliss. The overall feeling of the ambience is functional.

Other facilities at the hotel include underground car park and meeting room. The staff are friendly and at the reception desk there is usually someone with a reasonable amount of English.
