Mot Mot Apartment - Living Area

The long wrap-around balcony of the Mot Mot Apartment - click to enlarge

The three-bedroom Mot Mot Apartment provides gross accommodation of around 130m2 (1,400ft2), including the balcony.

One of the most noticeable features of Mot Mot is the 1.6-metre wide balcony that runs around two sides of the building. Furnished with a small circular table and four chairs, you are guaranteed a shady spot at all times of the day. It was a lovely spot to chill out and watch the birds in the surrounding trees.

The entrance door leads from the balcony and into a large living area, furnished with a padded rattan-style 3-seater sofa with two matching armchairs and a coffee table. There is no television or music player, so guests who tire of birdsong will need to provide their own entertainment.

The living room is dominated by a huge breakfast bar with kitchen cabinets beneath the expansive worktop. There is lots of storage space. There were no bar stools at the time of our visit, but we are told that three stools have now been provided.

A large fridge-freezer ensures that trips to the supermarket are kept to the minimum. A disparate collection of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils, well past their best, was provided. We understand that the kitchenware and pots have now been changed.

Although the living room is quite spacious, the ‘chunky’ nature of the kitchen furniture and, to a lesser degree, the stocky rattan furniture, means that there is precious little room for a dining table. The balcony is undoubtedly a lovely spot to dine. However, it is a long way from the kitchen and as the balcony is only 1.6 metres wide, trying to seat even four people around a circular table hardly makes for a spacious dining experience. The only alternatives are a smaller table with four chairs next to the plunge pool, the low coffee table in the living room or the breakfast bar.

Adjacent to the kitchen area, a spiral staircase provides internal access to the Mot Mot Apartment on the upper floor. The connecting door is only unlocked when the apartments are rented as a single unit. The soundproofing between the apartments was reasonable, although scraping chairs and heavy footsteps were noticeable.

The living area - click to enlargeThe living area is not air-conditioned and just a single floor-standing fan is provided. The room can easily become oppressively hot, so it is essential to open the doors and windows as early in the day as possible to prevent hot air building up inside the high-ceilinged room. Sadly, only one side of the main entrance door can be opened and some windows inadvertently self-close after being opened. We understand that a large ceiling fan has been ordered and will be installed in the living room shortly.

One useful facility that may appeal to visitors from the UK is that the kitchen and master bedroom have both the regular 110v Type B American 2 pin flat and UK 220v 3-pin power sockets.

There is no landline telephone at the property, but it does benefit from strong signals from both cellular/mobile providers. Complimentary Wi-Fi broadband is available throughout the property.
