I've been to this resort twice, and will keep coming back. Service is average, as is the breakfast spread. What makes this a winner for me is the location. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and it's surrounded by countless restaurants and minimarts. The room is spacious for 2 people. Though the mattress is quite firm.

Was there in Feb 2014 and paid USD 300 for 3 nights. The poor quality of the mattress had almost made me banned this hotel but one incident had changed it all. We had checked out, left our luggage at the concierge, to head out to explore as our flight was in the evening. Upon arrival back at the hotel,... More

Everything about this resort is nice and contemporary from the room ( art and clean ), the pool ( very nice ) and the incredible breakfast buffet!!! We stayed only... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the pool access room. The room is spacious, clean, and pretty new. Free mini bar drinks that included coke, beer, juice water and chocolate bar. The pool was sparkling clean. The only thing I can fault is the water pressure. Everything else was great. The staffs were great! I've lost my wallet with all my... More

Stayed here with a group of friends last month. This hotel is strategically located near Karon Beach and we ABSOLUTELY love it here. It's at the quieter side of Phuket but not too far away from Patong. Interior and staff service of the hotel is amazing. Everything here is so beautiful and meticulously prepared (including the restocking of the mini... More

this hotel is for those who want to be on Phuket, but not so much in the crowds. True, it is a bit more quiet although there's still enough going on. Checkin was swift but not very personal. Were shown to our room by one of the female receptionists who was clearly keen on a tip. Which we would have... More
