The hotel is located outside of Patong but there is free hotel transport on from the hotel, but if you need a taxi its 300bat. The hotel is in an expellant setting right on the beach, although it states its a 5 star, I would rate it as a 4 star plus but what you get for the price in... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of our Thailand holiday (previously in Koh Samui). We stayed in interconnecting delux rooms (2 adults + 3 children). The setup was absolutely perfect the children's room contained two double beds + a full size single rollaway. There was still plenty of room. Our room had a king size bed. Rooms are... More

We booked this place mainly for the kids for the pool and sliders. Good: We got a room with balcony and sea view. It was really nice and pleasant. Sea view is great, room comfort is pretty good even if queen size beds are small. Bathroom is also great and pleasant. Pool is great for the kids. Beach is clean... More

Our background; I am a spoilt traveller, I've lived in 5 star properties. My husband is an ex backpacker. Between us, we like something special, but not necessarily too fancy. DINKS (Double income, no kids) This hotel is a decent price and a good distance (close enough, but far enough) from the madness of Patong Beach and Bangla Road. The... More

After the initial problems with getting out rooms we have really enjoyed our stay. The restaurants offer good food although more expensive than in Patong. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned daily. Breakfast offering is large and accommodates all tastes. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always stop to say hello. The free courtesy bus to Patong is... More

The resort has it all! We enjoyed the semi private beach - very picturesque and never packed with people. Just watch out it when the tide goes out it becomes rocky. The pools were fantastic. Always crystal blue. Kids will enjoy the size and variety. Adults will enjoy the pool bar. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The best... More

We've been for the first time March 2015. I miss it so much, we'll have to go back. Travelling a foreign country for the first time, things could be very overwhelming. We felt so at home though! Everything was just great, personnel, especially at the pool bar, was very friendly. Clean lovely place. The private beach and beach massages exceptional.... More
