Wonderful reef just 200m from the beach, very good service - staff spoke English very well, were extremely kind and helpful - really top quality. In low season you can feel really at home - no random people. Rooms nice and clean, maybe the shower could be cleaner, but as it is an open air shower - it's fine. Restaurant... More

We stayed here for three nights. Beach front and restaurant are perfect. Just a short swim out from the front of the resort and you have some great snorkelling. We didn't stay on the beach front so the bungalow was not perfect and could be improved. However everything else including the great service and friendly staff made up for that!... More

We stayed in Beachfront Cottage for 3 nights and dine at the hotel for all meals. Pros:- 1) Clear sea with corals to explore just in front of hotel. Really a natural paradise. 2) Terrific foods and service at restaurant (Khun O and Khun Ma were very nice and provided us with information and also recommended foods out of menu).... More

If you are looking for something well off the beaten track and with absolutely no distractions then this is the place for you. If, however, you want to be entertained, steer well clear. We wanted to chill, relax and be completely out of touch with the world and we got exactly that! The island is on a fairly large tidal... More

We stayed in Thapwarin resort for a week and we loved our beach front bungalow. Our 3 year old could play in the bungalow or outside on the beach while we enjoyed the beautiful view from the sun beds outside the bungalow. There is not much to do here - but a very relaxing and chilled place for a familly... More

Stayed 3 nights in a beach front cottage. The location is sublime, the island so beautiful and you can never get tired of the view from the porch of the cottage. There is a totally laid back atmosphere and you can really relax. We loved the rustic charm of the cottage and the outdoor bathroom. The beds were very hard... More

We stayed in a beach front bungalow (BF07)and it was so relaxing. We were a family with 2 kids and the kids could run around freely. They could play in the room while we hung out on the beach. The room: The room could barely fit an extra bed. There was bad illumination in the room, so during night time... More

On first sight the resort looks nice, but after staying here for 4 nights we had a list of points that need to be improved: - Shower is switching between hot/cold and on/off or harder/softer. This is very annoying - Alot of mosquitoes in the room - The bathroom is outside, if you have to go to the toilet at... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a warin cottage. Cottage was ok, nothing too special. Beachfront cottages are a lot nicer, but a bit overpriced in my opinion. We saw both and decided for the cheaper warin cottage. Food is ok, again nothing too special. Of course price levels are a bit above the mainland, that is to be expected... More

Very Nice and welcoming hôtel. One of the best on this Island thanks to its location ( 2 nd of the beach and a little appart from the others) and its design. The beach front bungalows are clean and charming. The food is delicious and the staff helpful. The malayay hôtel, further down on the beach, has the same ownership.... More
