After one night in our booked hotel in Karon beach which we hated we moved to this hotel. As we had such a terrible experience in our previous hotel we only booked a few nights here to start but the moment we arrived we decided to extend our stay for 11 nights in total.

This place surprised us in a good way, so much so, we changed our stay from 1 night to 8. LOCATION: Right on the beach, gorgeous sunsets. You will need a cab/bike/car to get to stores and phuket. GROUNDS: Set nicely. When the tide goes out, the beach is ugly, but it can't be helped. Plan your ocean activities accordingly.... More

Booked in at this hotel as a young couple, received a room on the 4th floor at the back of the resort which is located along a busy road which makes peaceful sleeping a challenge. The beach is not suitable for swimming and it's more of a beach on the edge of a dam as it's located across from a... More

I have learnt that this hotel has changed hands and will be under new management. Under these circumstances I would like to qualify my earlier very good reviews as this may or may not apply in the future. Good luck and best wishes to the management who made our visits so delightful

I stayed here for 4 days in December 2013. I chose an absolute beachfront room and so glad I did. The beach is fringed with palm trees and lawn and lined with recliners. The beach is private and fairly quiet, but with enough people around for it to feel holiday-ish. As the hotel is in a secluded location don't expect... More
