Well this is our second visit since 2012 and it certainly did not disappoint once again. Only 3 kilometres from Patong and free shuttles a few times a day it certainly saves you money as the asking price for taxi or Tuh Tuh to Patong is minimum 250 Baht which is about $10 AUD. This hotel has everything for either... More

We stayed here with a massive group of friends, all of which had their own needs: some had small children and others had kids of the grown up variety. Whatever was put to the hotel staff they handled seamlessly and nothing seemed too much for them. Great food in and around the resort and only a short Tuk Tuk ride... More

Checked in at about 11:30pm after a long nearly 24 hours of travelling and check in was very quick and were shown to our lovely room on the 4th floor (1402 - lovely view of the pool and the beach - photo included) The hotel was lovely, quiet, peaceful and empty for the first week then started to fill up...

Pro's: rooms great, pool awesome Con's: in-house Thai restaurant food beyond awful, kids club v.basic & allows kids to wander off as they please or be removed by strangers (... a little worrying), expensive bar & food menu considering options available nearby, amusingly over-staffed (ie: swim up bar we counted14 staff for 26 seats?!)

I've never been treated so badly by a hotel before. If... More

This resort is beautiful, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly. We were welcomed with a cold towel and drink, which went down well after a 14 hour flight. The pools were the best I have ever seen, and the beautiful scenery around the hotel makes you feel that you are in a welcome retreat from... More
