Hello, I stayed there for a week in October, which is off-season. The staff was really nice and the room was great, ie spacious, clean and with a nice atmosphere. For $100 a night it was well worth it. Now, I had seen many disgruntled reviews that made me hesitate beforehand, and when I was there I realised that maybe... More

We booked a deluxe cottage, and discovered it was situated near railay east- the mangrove beach. The room itself was far from luxury- hard bed, broken shower handle, mold in places. We asked for a better room, and surprisingly received some money back, cause the better rooms are cheaper and much closer to railay west. If you pick a room,... More

Certainly not worth the money. We started out having booked a "Deluxe" Cottage, but the room was so dingy, the beds so hard it was unappealing to say the least. We asked a receptionist if we could upgrade (on our dime) to a "Suite" Cottage. This cost us an extra $$$ per night but at least it was brighter. Breakfasts... More

Dirty, smelled of sewage, bugs everywhere. The hotel messed up our reservation, giving us the wrong type of room that we had paid for. It took an hour to get it straightened out, and the room they provided us with was not satisfactory. Beautiful location on Railay Beach. I would definitely not go back to this hotel.

I wish I had read some of the reviews before going here. We stayed here for 5 nights just recently. The beds were hard spring matresses, so we didn't get a good nights sleep while there. the showers didn't work properly. The staff of the resort weren't helpful, The island itself just had a bad feel. But thats my opinion

Our room was alright, the hot tub outside was a joke.. Not a clean place and hotel not so friendly.. The staff was just acted like we were bothering them all the time.. We just got back from a resort on phi phi and they were so accommodating and nice and friendly and came to this place.. It wasn't horrible... More

No way this place is a four star hotel. Its struggling to be a 3. Regardless, it is still probably the second or third nicest hotel in Railay. Which is a little sad because it is a beautiful area with a stunning view. First impressions mean a lot and outs was not positive. You can only get there by boat... More

This hotel isn't perfect, probably not the best hotel I've stayed in, but it is really very good especially for the price. I was a bit unsure how this place would turn out, the reviews I've read seem very mixed from appalling, dirty and dangerous up to truly wonderful. The hotel's website had many more pictures of the grounds, pool... More

We stayed here for 5 days to relax after the hustle of Bangkok and Chiang Mai. We had a privacy villa (6000-8000 are best). It was perfect. Plenty of room a daybed, TV, fridge, terrace with outdoor shower and a spa tub. I read many reviews that said the staff are not friendly. That is NOT so. If you say... More

The hotel is located partway between the west and east beaches of Railay. Pool area is great and directly on the beach and never had any issues with getting a sunbed. This is the perfect place to watch the sunset also. The room itself was very spacious and the bathroom was like a mini-spa. The food in the restaurant is... More
