We stayed beautiful 8 nights in August 2014. We went to this resort with the idea of relaxing and this was ultimately what we achieved, even reading a book each whilst chilling by the pool. The rooms were clean and spacious, breakfast delicious and incredible with so much variety, the pool was my favourite - biggest pool I have been... More

We arrived on the 27th Aug 2014 for 7 nights. Looked lovely at first but in the morning you could see it was not of a 5 star rating. In need of basic update. Even the seat cushions in the breakfast area were cracked so my skin was constantly scratched and pinched. It was low season, so there was no... More

We arrived expecting a much better room then we were given. It was far away from everything and near some construction. The food was decent, and had an average Thailand breakfast. The pool was really nice but you can't go in at night. The beach was nice but small. The hotel wasn't really within walking distance to anything so we... More

We stayed Aug 15th 2014 for 12 nights and loved this amazing hotel. The breakfast was delicious with so many options (which changed daily), happy hour in the pool bar was great (although I do believe the cocktails are watered down a little bit but what do you expect when your only paying 100 baht - $3 aus per cocktail)....

We wanted a place to relax and we got it, away from busy Patong but only minutes away if you wanted to experience the town. The staff were very welcoming and incredibly friendly, with every request attended to with a smile and never a problem to help.The Resort caters for everyone and is very affordable

Excellent. Caters for everyone, from families, couples & singles. Clean and well maintained. Staff are helpful and pleasant in every area. Highly recommend it. Prices are reasonable, typical resort prices. However on the beach you can get massages and washing done cheaper. Little tiger restaurant up on hill is lovely, with nice food at great prices. Tuk tuk into town... More

Third time at this excellent resort close to but just far enough away from the bustle of Patong and it felt like we had come home. The staff are excellent and friendly to a fault remembering you from previous visits and ensuring that everything was to your satisfaction. The breakfast is excellent and the rooms spacious and clean. The pools... More

What a beautiful resort. Two weeks in August half board. It's low season in Thailand so no problems getting tables for breakfast or dinner, no problems getting loungers around the pool or by the resorts private beach. Room was spacious and air conditioned. Food was excellent - good selection of both thai and European dishes. Staff efficient and friendly. Would... More

This hotel was awesome, we had our own private beach at the back and the staff were all very nice and the accomodiation was very comfortable and everyone was reliable and helpful. Would go back again as it was a very relaxing place to visit.
