I'm writing this whilst still staying at this hotel. We hired a car and initially struggled to find the hotel, but once we arrived we were happy. Lovely reception and room clean and spacious. The rooms are cleaned daily and clean towels too. You are also provided with bathrobes, slippers, tea and coffee and towels for the pool and for... More

This hotel is very clean. Beautiful sunset view from the pool and rooms. The breakfast was good. I think it would be difficult for the elderly to stay here because the hotel is build against a hill and you have to climb many steps to reach your room, pool or spa area. The spa was closed during our stay. I... More

Value for $ for a room with such cleanliness, facility and VIEW!! Manage your expectation at breakfast spread. But who needs breakfast when there are so many other food haunts in Phuket :) Fear not the altitude for there is a unique lift within hotel vicinity that ferry guests up the hill. Got to get a room with the Jacuzzi.

My friend and I found this hotel online the day before we arrived and stayed for three days. We wanted to be close enough to the Patong nightlife but also near a nice beach and quiet town with good restaurants. This hotel didn't disappoint, it was perfect :) it's only a 10 - 15 minute taxi to Patong and the... More

I can't imagine a better guest-service experience than we got at this hotel. The hotel itself is a bit unusual in location and design, and there's a small convenience price to pay for the fantastic view, but overall we would highly recommend this resort. It's beautiful, unique and well-staffed. All of the staff was tremendously friendly and helpful (especially considering... More

This hotel is just purely amazing. Let me just say if you’re trying to decide on a place to stay, CHOOSE this hotel! Let me start off with the positives. Firstly, the views are absolutely amazing, I don’t have much to go off, but I’d say probably the best views in Karon! The hotel is perched up on the Karon... More

I really can't say one bad thing about this place, it's perfect. It's a five minute walk to the main road, yet it's quiet and calm. It's a beautiful place with perfect rooms, clean and bright, with good AC, shower and tub, great beds in wich I slept like a baby. Never tried the restaurant food, but the breakfast buffet... More
