My cousin and I decided to holiday at this resort because we were under the impression (based on the official website) that it was a beautiful resort and would be a great place to relax. However, from the moment we arrived to town, we had to take a boat to the most rocky/bumpy jetty we have ever encountered. There is... More

3 days into a 5 day booking here and I cannot speak highly enough of the resort or the staff. There is a huge amount of information here (Tripadvsor) regarding the boat transport and the jetty as well as its relatively remote location. The rooms are lovely, the food has been fantastic, the staff friendly and polite. Sometimes nature impacts... More

My husband and I stayed here for 16 nights over Christmas and New Year 2013 for our honeymoon and I would 100% return. We found all the staff to be extremely polite and attentive and we were welcomed by the hotel manager on our arrival. To be honest the guests could have done with a dose of the staffs manners...

Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Arriving from a 5 star hotel in Kho Phan Ang, we were being a bit snobby and worrying that it wouldn't be as nice as this was our last stop before home. We were wrong, it was really nice. Staff were very friendly, breakfasts were good. Room was immaculate. We had the hot tub on the... More

We arrived at Krabi Airport and caught our own taxi to the pier. Go to the taxi counter at the airport as it is a fixed price and cheaper than through the resort. You need to pre book your seat on the shuttle boat to the resort if you want smooth travel. We organised this through the resort directly and... More

Dear Rosemary S Thank you for sharing your comments following your recent stay at our resort. Please accept my apologies that we did not meet all your expectations. In regards to your comment about happy hours drinks, this situation of having all drinks served at once was an initiative by the barman which has since been discontinued. The spa products... More

Please know what this resort is offering. If you go there with the understanding that it is a very relaxing resort with fantastic restaurants and amazing staff, then you won't be disappointed. If you want the nightlife of a Phuket hotel, this is not for you. This resort is very remote and can only be reached by boat. The "bridge"... More

PROS - Great setting, great staff, kids club, good size rooms. CONS - Rooms and fixtures look a little worn and dated in places. Lack of evening entertainment if your stuck there due to weather. Boat service to Ao Nang was erratic even in better weather, Thai restaurant very good, beach bar very good, Japanese and lotus court restaurants a... More

We had a fantastic 10 days at this beautiful resort. All the staff were absolutely lovely. If you get the chance to join "the Club" I would advise you do this. It offers a wonderful service and excellent value for money. Thanks to Dang and her staff for making our stay so special. The resort and the pool in particular... More

I read a lot of review about this hotel and it is important for you to know that if you don't like wild life (monkeys) don't stay here and give this place a bad review! This hotel is in a national park and monkeys are part it's charm. You will arrive on a boat and disembark on a floating dock.... More
