In 4 years in Thailand this was our favoirte spot and going back this xmas. Private beach, great acquatic sport structure with catamaran, kayak, windsurfs. Beautiful pool. Rooms luxurious. Electric cars drive you around a hotel hidden in the jungle. Great teppaniaki restaurant. Hotel service slow. Take hotel airport pick up to avoid waiting one hour for the boat taking... More

Right in the national park, surrounded by forest & water; this is a magical place to stay! The rooms are clean & spacious in a tree-house setting. I would recommend requesting a high room with private spa on deck (for the little extra, the view is well worth it). Be aware this is NOT a place for elderly or disabled... More

Booked 2 rooms here 10 months ago so we're really pleased with our room requests (1135/36) which have fantastic views over the bay. Wonderful to open the shutters and enjoy the view each morning of our 6 night stay. Hotel was really good, attentive staff and bed linen turned down each night a nice touch. Nothing further to add about... More

Stayed here for 8 nights with my pregnant wife and really enjoyed it. Great setting and good service this made for a great holiday. Christine and Jennifer was exceptional and attentive.

We stayed at this hotel just 1 night for our anniversery, but the stay was great, We borrowed a kayak from the hotel and kayaked around the small island near the beach, a perfect couple activity. The food served by the pool was good but expensive for a hotel in Ao Nang area. The hotel room we got had a... More

We had a great time here! The location was fantastic in Krabi and the way the water would rise and fall each day. The Monkey Trial was awesome - probably not good for anyone who is scared of monkeys or anyone who does not have good balance. The boat ride to the hotel is somewhat inconvenient and we had to...

We loved this hotel resort. This was a perfect, relaxing escape to start our holiday in Thailand. The hotel resort is in its own bay and accessed by speedboat from Ao Nang so the beach is quiet with excellent swimming, though there is also a good beachside swimming pool. When we were there there were few children though the resort... More

We spent our honeymoon here and needless to say it is without a doubt the best holiday yet.

First off, let me address two of the common complaints regarding this hotel: - The jetty, unlike what some reviewers mentioned, is absolutely fine (it's even quite fun actually!). If some guest experience difficulties going to and from the boats, staff members are always there to help them. - The monkeys are really cute and they are harmless if you... More

The hotel is tucked away on a private bay on Ao Nang. I was in the sea view room with jacuzzi on the balcony and could not have asked for a better room. The view was spectacular.
