The Marriott Gold card membership has always been so useful for me and so I got to try various hotels & resorts of the Marriott group. 99% of the time I can book the room without any hassle or very least of blackout dates at a very preferential rate from the program vouchers of THB1,999 to 2,999++ (incl. ABF). This time at this peak Easter holiday break, I could still make good use of the voucher for trying this Renaissance. Originally I wanna stay at the Sala and feel like trying Renaissance in the meantime. However, even after I paid for an instant booking thru' latestays.com, it turned out the booking was rejected and refunded at a very last minute. That really made my whole booking schedule messed up and finally I had to try a resort which I didn't think I would try - Holiday Inn Mai Khao as a replacement of The Sala for the stay after Renaissance.
Back to this resort, all the staff are pretty well trained and cater for any request for the room. Though it's a peak season and that I use the voucher for redemption (the rate is 50% of the Easter holiday rate), they still put me on my preferred choice for the room, like higher floor with less trees in the front...etc. The room is pretty spacious, with a big couch and bathtub.
