Had a wonderful stay. Pool area on the 6 th floor amazing. Close to beach and local markets. Staff very helpful. We got a 10% off voucher for the spa next to the hotel. Overall we loved the hotel,would definitely stay here again on our next visit:).

The rooms are large. The staff is efficient, but not overly friendly. The location is close to the beach, but if you intend to dine or spend time in Karon or Kata, its a cab ride unless you really like to walk. Thisis not a memorable hotel. Its a place to sleep. There are far better choiçes at the price point including Simplitel in Karon.

The hotel which completely surrounds this hotel is catering to the cheap Russian tourist trade. This brings a set of problems particular to that sector of the tourist crowd. I am not a snob, but this crowd is running off the Euro travel trade and causing more than a few businesses to go under. Its sad to see. So be forewarned.

I really enjoyed staying here across from the beach. The Hotel was super modern which is not what I normally go for.

Highlights: rooftop pool perfect for evening dips and beach views, excellent breakfast buffet (I believe we were in the first group to experience it and it was excellently executed), and convenient to many massage places. Great staff.

Other pros: 15 min walk from the Pad Thai Shop (best Pad Thai in Thailand), the Massage place they recommend which is just two shops down from the entrance to the hotel is really nice and I received a handful of great massages (Plus they are open until midnight).

Feedback: Shower water seemed to go all over the bathroom which was kind of inconvenient.

Friendly, clean hotel that is very close to the beach. Great pool, with amazing sunset views. The pool could do with more shaded areas though. Rooms are clean but a little on the small side. For two people we could have done with a little more space. There could also be maybe at least one chair added to the room as we had to bring in the balcony chair, as there is no where to hang things; clothes would otherwise be on the floor.

Location is good for the beach, there are a few restaurants near by and the busier part of Karon is just a short walk away.

I travelled with a friend and I would recommend this hotel for those travelling on their own or with friends or couples.

The breakfasts varied everyday, so didn't get boring. I would stay here again.

Pros:
Location. It is bang opposite Karon beach. You just need to cross the road. Though there are no sea facing rooms.
Note that you cannot walk to patong, you need a ride.
Rooms on one side of the bldg have a complete greenery view. You would have to request this in advance.
The rooms are great as compared to the price you pay. We paid around SGD 70 per night.

You cannot walk to Patong. So you would need a ride if you want to get some action, night life. There are restaurants in Karon, but u can find much better and slightly cheaper variety in Patong.
This was my second stay at this hotel. First time it was a great experience. It was very new then.
But now I can see there are Maintenance Issues.
The bathroom floor was not very clean. Though the toilet was very clean.
The bed side platform had big stains.
Though, I should mention that the bedsheets and towels were absolutely clean and fresh.

The staff helps wherever possible, but I have a feeling they are not really bothered if the guest is facing any issues.
We found 2 INSECTS in our breakfast. I understand that veggies are prone to have worms, but that does not mean they are not supposed to be cleaned.
When we informed about the insects in our food, the waitress informed the staff at reception, and that was the end of story. No one got back to us, neither was there any apology. A one word sorry would hav been fine by us. But nothing.
While checking out, we mentioned about our experience again. The charge for breakfast for one person for one day was waived off, again without a sorry, or any concern.

Still I would recommend this hotel as I think their Deluxe room for SGD 50 to 80 bucks is value for money.
However I also believe that it is not difficult for the staff to improve the maintenance in the bathrooms and to show a little more concern to any issues faced by guests.

Room Tip: Request in advance for a room facing the green side. Hill facing rooms. Grand Deluxe room = Deluxe...

Lovely hotel, great staff. The hotel is in a good location for exploring the different areas of Phuket. There is still abit of work going on at the hotel but only minor work which didnt trouble us. once finished the pool area will look great.
