Firstly thank you very much for your constructive feedback, we have taken it on board, and acted up on it.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the amazing views, night time is also one of our favourite times, and despite your feedback we are pleased to hear that you still had a lovely 25th anniversary.
Unfortunately Aye’s mum was taken ill, and she had to return to Burma. We believe provisions were made for providing evening meals, so sorry for this inconvenience.
On the holiday website’s we are using, Jacuzzi/hot tub is in the same tick box, and cannot be chosen separately, we have passed this back to them, and also added it to our web page that it is a unheated Jacuzzi, and not hot tub.
Regarding the privacy issue, we had planted bamboo along the edge of the terraces, however it did not turn out to provide the privacy that we had hoped for. These have now been changed to a thicker, taller and greener plant variety, we have also now planted six 8 meter tall trees between the two houses, and are also installing louvered privacy walls on that side of the house, so guests can now again arrive without their bathers.
The work on the villa next door is now fully completed.
The CCTV has now been included in the info book with the following “You will see that the villa is fitted with infra-red CCTV cameras on the outside of the house. The images are not stored or kept by the owners, and will only be accessed in the unlikely event of an incident occurring. Should this occur trained technicians will gain access to the system at the house to obtain any data, however the storage of data is only xxx hours.
