An amazing hotel, totally surrounded by nature, a small hidden paradise with a lot amenities to offer. Fantastic view, great rooms, swimming pools, nice beach. Staying there makes you feel unique. Fabulous breakfast.

We enjoyed our 7 day family holiday with enough varied activity for all to enjoy. Rough seas meant interesting transfers which we had not expected. The floating jetty was at times like an amusement park ride which for some could be daunting. The monkey trail could also be challenging and suggest bringing a sling shot to move the monkeys off...

We stayed here on holiday in July and has absolutely amazing. We loved it so much we extended our stay! The resort is on a private beach which you can only access via the hotel by speedboat ( this is complimentary and leaves every hour to and from Ao Nang Nopparatthara pier) which takes approximately 10-15 minutes.

We stayed for our honeymoon and it was perfect! The staff were amazing. The beach was lovely and fun to use the paddle boards every day! The setting is breath taking and the monkeys are funny, people need to respect that this is there home as its a national park. They are no harm to anyone. Would stay again.

Amazing location and beautiful beach, the only down side is the only way to Ao Nang was by boat which you need to book going and coming back, i felt the food and drinks at the hotel we a bit overpriced compared to the main town, but i suppose it is 5 star.

The Resort: The Resort sits on a secluded beach side where the guests can reach conveniently through the Resorts’ private boat. It takes around 10-15 minutes to reach the resort. An alternate way to access the property is through Monkey Trail, which especially during rains is not advisable to use. Elderly guests may find it very difficult to take this... More
