This is the only resort on the island where you will not see rubbish on the beach and in the sea. Sadly the whole island has been ruined over the past 10 years. I do not recommend this island but as a quick getaway from Bangkok it is ideal as there is no flying involved. The owner was fantastic fun... More

Great location with a vèry private beach front. 30 minutes walk to the nearest pier and not many options in terms of restaurants or shops outside of resort. The bungalows are run down, but the pool and restaurant area feels good. Would only recommend staying at bungalows closer or have beach front. Outdoor shower is an interesting experience but not...

We stayed for 5 days over New Year, the positive things about the resort is the quiet location and the private beach. The bungalow we had was not clean, marks on the sheet and pillow cases and dust. The staff were great an they upgraded us on the 3rd day to a larger and a bit nicer bungalow. The problem... More

Average. The bungalows are old and termite infested (could hear noises in the rafters at night time) and wood dust on my clothing in the mornings. Bed Linen is old and stained. Bathroom kept clean, but the fitting are old. As the showers are outside, couldn't shower on rainy days. The beach front is ok, but nothing special. Just beyond... More

We loved this place! Yes, there are a few areas for improvement but the island charm and relaxing ambiance made for a perfect weekend getaway. This place is the first stop on the speedboat, at the far end of the island (in case you miss the ferry). The rooms are really charming and we loved the low bed. We had... More

We had a beautiful and relaxing trip. The bungalow was simple but clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the clean white sand beach. The food was lovely. Thanks for such a great time. We hope to return if we get a chance.

I was a little anxious after reading some of the reviews, but I needn't have worried. We stayed for 5 days. It was a little paradise. It's true there is a bit of updating needed, but it doesn't matter. We were upgraded to a beach front bungalow, although we had asked for a twin room it had a double bed.... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4 nights, actually on my last day as I am writing this. Either some of the previous reviewers are just abnormally picky, or the place has changed a lot in the last 2 months, as we have had nothing but an awesome time here. The rooms are nice, comfy and clean. There was... More
