Nice hotel, little beach huts. Basic but exactly what you want in that location. Beach was beautiful and literally 10 steps from our door Food was nice and cocktails on the beach was just perfect!! Literally a short walk from Big Buddha pier (no longer than 2 mins) great location. Couple of nice restaurants just across the road too!

I loved LOVED it here and because it felt so good I came back after a week and stayed some more! Friendly staff, nice bar where you can relax and be social if you want or just sit there, sip from your fresh coconut and enjoy the ocean. Friends were staying in the one bungalow directly facing the ocean, I... More

We stayed elsewhere, so only ate here, but would recommend the restaurant and the gardens generally. It was a very relaxing place to sit and have a beer or two and watch life on the water. We very much enjoyed our meals here, and on Sundays there is live music in the evening. Obviously there are big changes being made... More

Magnificent hotel. I've decided to write this review almost year after the visit. The reason - really warm memories. The things I remembered the most - friendly, helpful and responsive staff, high level European and Thai cuisine (at some point you start to miss european dishes in Thailand, and it's not trivial to find good quality restaurant which serves one),...

What a location! The view from the beach is a classic sunkissed Island view. The sea is pretty much always calm, and although the water is not clear, the swimming was wonderful. Great place to take boat trips from, as the pier is only a few hundred yards walk along the beach. Rooms were pleasant, clean and tidy, was a... More

Great spot right near Big Buddha Beach. Super easy taxi ride from airport and about a 10 min trip from anywhere you want to go around Samui. Rik and "John" (the owners) are helpful and kind. The hotel will be closed for the summer of 2015 though for renovations. We stayed in room 1 and all the other hits are... More

Very nice hotel&restaurant by dutch owners. Calm, good food, nice staff, close to Samui airport and Big Buddha, located at the beachfront of Big Buddha Beach. The bungalows are nicely designed and equipped.
