I went to lots of resorts all over the world, including one of the best in the Caribbean. This is probably the best one I've ever been. Great service, great room, great view and great food. And it is a lot cheaper than you think for a 5 stars resort.

We booked this resort as part of our Honeymoon. The resort itself is set in a beautiful secluded beach cove on the edge of a nature reserve. Our room was very nice but wasn't cleaned everyday and the bed was just tidied up rather than changed daily. Our room whilst on the second floor was situated behind another building which... More

The hotel is beautiful, with it's own private beach and stunning views. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It's a secluded location, but we felt this was much nicer and more exclusive than being in the main Ao Nang town. It was easy to get the speed boat if you book it in advance, or pay 150 baht for...
