We booked this hotel because it had good reviews & was in the less manic / touristy area of Koh Samui. It's close enough to everything espeically Fisherman's Village but far enough away to be peaceful . Rooms: We had inter connecting deluxe rooms which worked very well for us as a family of 4.

I stayed here with my partner for 8 nights (got a great deal, pay 4 stay an extra 4 for free). The resort was perfectly stunning, everything was perfectly in place and extremely clean, all staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Breakfast had a huge range of options and was always fresh. Our room was always left spotless and our... More

This resort was lovely. Fantastic location, easy access to everything. The staff were fantastic. I miss the buffet breakfast- the noodle soup in particular was a delight! Everything was sparkling clean and wonderful.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We stayed here 6 nights of our honeymoon in a deluxe double room. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a room on the first floor with a very high ceiling and a large balcony. The room was very quiet and clean, and we didn't find any lizard or insect inside.... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in August. The hotel is beautiful - lovely grounds and beach and in a great location. The rooms are spacious and the balcony was quite large with a table and chairs and a large lounger/day bed - this came in handy some days as we had a fair bit of rain and it was... More

Absolutely stunning grounds, beautiful rooms, 2 pools with a nice beach front. The only thing that prevents this from being a 5 star is that it was not all-inclusive and it's pretty expensive. Given how much we paid to stay you would think they could throw in food and drink. We were there for a wedding so the only time... More

Supposed to be 4 star and above rated 5 star by Best at Travel. Steep difficult to use entrance. Terrible rooms (Superior !!!!) smell of damp, next to a very noisy busy road. Unhelpful, smirking shift manger. Don't bother using Best At Travel or this hotel as you will be lied to and disappointed. Totally ruined our holiday.

Having spent a week in Bangkok and Chiang Mai we were ready for a week on the beach. This resort is a really friendly resort with excellent staff (especially the bar staff at the Beach Bar who work exceptionally hard).

On arrival at the resort, the entrance isn't very impressive as it is on the roadside, however on entering the foyer you can see how the grounds spread out in front of you to a great haven. I had previously emailed the hotel prior to arrival requesting a quiet room away from the road and was informed this would be... More
