My husband and I stayed at Kanok Buri last year and loved it so much that we returned this year in June for 2 weeks. Regrettably, this is where the positive’s finish and I must advise caution! Less than 24 hours after arriving at Buri, our personal room safe was broken into and £310.00 was stolen from us. There was... More

This was an amazing stay (august 2014). Receptionist gave us a room upgrade, so we stayed in a Private Plunge Pool type of room = little villa with huge jacuzzi pool. The room was perfect. This hotel is on the west side of the island. That means its much more quiet that the east side. We were absoluttely thrilled about... More

Stayed here with the wife for 8 days in January. The staff were friendly and always helpful when asked any questions or queries. I thought their prices for the spa treatments were a bit overpriced for what you got. The food portions were small as well. I always found myself still hungry and wanting more although the food was good... More

First of all, I would point out that this resort is not necessarily suitable for families with children. My partner and I were there in summer 2014 with a couple of friends and their children. Located in a quiet area of the island, without a lot of hassle from other tourists. Which is very good, as we wanted to relax... More

Big group of us stated at the Kanok. We had a plunge pool room which was fantastic although the amazing bath was never able to be used as water pressure and temperature poor. Breakfast ver6 average. Staff always friendly and polite. Beach location was lovely. Taxis expensive for Thailand!

A large group of us stayed at Kanok Buri Resort for a friends wedding. From first glance the little villas look gorgeous with greenery and ponds throughout, however the bathrooms were off colour very dated and the shower had little pressure and the temperature was inconsistent. Gift the wedding organiser was amazing and couldn't do enough and the wedding looked... More

You'll pay less for more elsewhere. The room was nice - clean and huge. Bathroom sadly dated and a few issues with the shower (but good hot water). Meals are better eaten elsewhere and they will need to improve breakfast as its below standard. Staff are great however and VERY helpful and friendly. If management fixed up the hotel it... More

I ordered a bowl of pasta after a busy day of activities and was left disappointed. The size of the meal was a mere handful and for 280 baht I was expecting something a bit more substantial. The waiter didn't really want to be there at all, shoddy service. Although I only got a minuscule amount of pasta it was... More

Without all the frills, this property is as wonderful cultural blend of traditional "Thai" and good quality construction and design. Private villas, some with plunge pools, are beautifully decorated and appointed in an understated, traditionally Thai manner. The property also sits on a very sandy stretch of beach on the quiet and less developed west side of the island. Since... More
