Beautiful resort on the larger, less developed island, just 25 mins boat ride away from Phuket but a world away from the noise and hubbub of the mainland. Peaceful, comfortable bungalows near the pools and/or the sea. Great pools, various extra services, excursions and activities on offer if you manage to tear yourself away from the pool-side loungers and the... More

Villa The villa was lovely, very spacious. The aircon was perfectly serviceable, and not too noisy (although not silent), and the furnishings were modern. The window seat was very comfortable and made a nice place to escape the heat and humidity or for a little siesta. Huge bed. Bathroom was very large, with an outdoor shower - though really it...

My husband and I and our two children (8 and 11) have just spent two nights here. It is a stunningly beautiful place and it was lovely to spend some time at a quieter location away from the mainland. We stayed in a family villa and were a little disappointed that there were no views from the villa but the... More

If you want quiet, relaxing and a real change from the development and chaos of places like Phuket this is it. We stayed in one of the sea view villas with our 2 young daughters for 4 nights and loved this place. Beautiful design which fits in with the landscape the place is perfectly serene. When we visited the resort... More

Paradise on earth. Not ideal for beach swimming, so consider spending most of the in-water time in one of their beautiful swimming pools. The food is great and the rooms are exotic. Incredible peaceful and quiet place. Consider exploring the island by renting a motor bike (scooter) to travel a road that goes all around the island's perimeter. You can... More

I was supposed to stay here for 2 nights in May with my girlfriend, but we ended up staying for 4 as we loved it so much. The rooms are absolutely superb and we really loved the sala. I find other peoples reviews about the service and lack of English speaking staff to be a bit strange as I never... More

We stayed for 2 nights in April. The transfer to the hotel was great, another league. The mangrove kayaking activity we did from the hotel was overpriced for Thailand (expected in a resort) but efficient and a great experience. However the service in the restaurant and bar was terrible and a real let down to this hotel. We quite often... More
