Best family holiday ever. Best staff we have encountered in our lives. Staff are fantastic with children, seem to have a good rapport with each other and nothing is too much trouble. View is to die for. Pool is amazing- huge. Seriously can't fault the place. Free shuttle to night market. Nice change from the smelly market in Chiang Mai-... More

We only had two nights in this awesome hotel but I wish it was longer. The pool and water slides are super fun, we're in our mid/late 30's and still had a ball. Definitely go for a lagoon suite on the western side of the resort so the swim up bar is only a two minute swim from your room.... More

We stayed for three nights in Feb 2015. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel room was clean and tidy. We had adjoining rooms on the fourth floor and these were tired. In one room, the large picture frame feature in the bathroom had fallen from the wall. We returned to find it on the floor and debris on... More
