We booked to stay here for a week in August with our 4yrs old daughter. The resort is fine, lacking a little maintenance here and there, but generally ok. However, when we got there we were charged the price of a full extra bed at 300 baht per night extra for pir daughter, which is weird because we picked a... More

This hotel is lovely. The owners Glen and David are so friendly and helpful. The rooms have a welcome tray with some lovely treats in, the beds are 4 poster with a lovely bathroom. This was luxury for us. The breakfast was really great as well you could pick what you wanted and have on your balcony, in the restaurant... More

I went on a solo holiday just to get some peace and quiet. That is just what I got here. Breakfast was included everyday and it was tasty. The room was spacious enough for four, even though it was just me. Great balcony for reading, studying, or chatting with friends. I can say it is a little slice of heaven... More

Ancient Realm Resort is a hidden gem - not only for it's beautiful location on Kantiang Bay, but because of it's amazing hosts - David, Glenn and their doggie - Georgi. Our accommodations were very comfortable, we could walk to a very secluded beach, could walk and enjoy a friendly & safe neighborhood. This is the best place we have... More

Ive spend a week in this hotel, whereas the location of it is perfect (~60 m from the nice and traquil beach) the hotel itself has lost its glory. The humid air makes that the smell of rotten fruit and penetrating sweat lingers outside, there was a 1 cm layer of dust and hair on the desk, at least 10... More

Stayed here during low season and compared to the other places in the area, this one a whole £2 over my budget, shone through! Helpful and friendly staff, good selection of breakfast included, the finishes in the room were very welcoming and relaxing and the owners have a gorgeous staffie called Georgie - lovely company!

We had moved down from Klong Kong bay, and stayed for four nights in the Ancient Realm in Kantieng Bay. It is a really lovely little place. It's built in an oriental style, with plants everywhere, a small pool, and an incredibly sweet English staffie, Georgie. The rooms are decked out with a bamboo four-poster bed, and towels made into... More

We stayed at Ancient Realm, originally booking for two nights but extended to five as we loved it so much. My friend and I are travelling Thailand for a month and this has been our favourite place by far. Kantiang Bay is a 5 minute walk away and is stunning, we ate in five of the local restaurants and they... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and, besides the bad weather, we would have stayed more. It is located in the southern part of the island, which makes it far from the principal attractions and night life places such as Long Beach but near to the most beautiful bay (Kantiang Bay) and to the National Park - and...

We stayed for 4 nights and we're pleased. The staff is friendly and breakfast in the garden was very nice, especially the rice porridge. David is extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area and helped us get to the destination in a big way. He was honest about what to expect and how to get around. The staff even rent... More
