My family stayed here for 3 nights and we had a wonderful time with the highlight being the staff and their attitude of ensuring we had the best time. The resort itself has a private beach which is idillic to say the least and great for taking a short walk under the moonlight. We ate dinner at the resort's restaurant... More

We had a very nice time here. It's a beautiful resort, with stunning beaches. The cabanas are very quaint and it was a unique experience. I really liked it. The staff makes a lot of effort, and I appreciate that. However, I feel like they are a little undertrained and didn't know quite what to do (wait staff). Also, there... More

Normally I do not bother to write hotel reviews, but this one needed it. Came here for some much needed r&r from our jobs in Dhaka in September and was hoping for clear skies, warm blue water, great service - basically a top notch experience. Not what happened !!! For starters it is way to expensive for what you get.... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip & was greeted by a lovely decorated room. Each room was situated in a different hut which felt quintessentially "Thai". Very comfortable and clean rooms. The pool & beach area were lush -- infinity pool for lounging & the beach great for snorkeling out to the reef etc where theres small... More

After a koh samui and koh phangan this place is wild and nature is around you 24/7. The hotel is probably the best is koh Tao , located in shark bay ( you see the sharks seining every morning) and far from any other attractions in the island . This is fun and relaxing the only problem is the food... More

This resort is quiet, private and well kept. There is a construction project ongoing and certainly room to improve. But we found the staff to be incredibly helpful and polite. We had an amazing time relaxing at the beach, snorkeling, kayaking and reading. When we were dropped off at the ferry the line was HUGE and disorganized. The man helping... More

We stayed 3 nights in a cast away beach villa. It was beautiful, perfect location a few steps away from the water right on the beach. The hotel was quiet, relaxed with a beautiful design. The spa was nice but very expensive. The restaurant was also expensive and the food was not great. Do not try the chefs specials they... More

Love the hotel, the service, the staff and the beach. The Reef DIve Center located inside the hotel is an amazing diving center both for experienced divers and for beginners. Very nice rooms. Good restaurant and bar. No negative observations, just good memories.
