We stayed here on over New Year in 2013/2014 for 4 days. The hotel is beautifully presented and clean with the staff working tirelessly to keep the grounds spotless and immaculate. The food was wonderful with a great menu and very accommodating staff. There are cheaper beachside restaurants which can be accessed by a short stroll down the beach to... More

A very enjoyable stay. Our room was on 1 st floor, overlooking pool. Nice views from our balcony and easy access to the lovely pool, beach and restaurant bar. Rooms are very well designed, plenty of space, 2 TVs and the aircon is nice and quiet. A bus is available twice daily for shopping enthusiasts. Low season meant we had... More

I don't really write reviews, but we stayed at the hotel just last night and felt that we have to let the other travelers know just how superb our experience was. This was for our honeymoon and we got the room on the top floor and the view every morning when you open the curtain was breathtaking. Accompanied by excellent... More

It was my first trip to Phuket, and we're glad we chose the right hotel (after extensive research on TripAdvisor, I must say). All we wanted to do on this trip was relax. This was a property located on a very private and tranquil stretch of beach, away from what is supposedly the madness of Patong or Kata. I will... More

Talk about being on the beach. The cafe and pool are right next to the beach. The sea water is warm and still. The pool has good sun in the morning hours and early afternoon. Plenty of loungers on beach and by pool. Good drenching shower at the transition from beach to pool area. The resturant is right next to... More
