The hotel is located in a unique and gorgeous location, but is at the same time very isolated from everything. The only way to connect to ao nang is by longtail boat (doesnt work when it rains) or through the monkey trail (seriously dangerous). When it comes to activities outside the hotel we thought the best way would be to book with the hotel (guaranteed quality, right?). We found out later that the whole tour thing in the hotel is nothing short of a rip off. They book the cheapest and most terrible tours and get a huge margin out of it. We booked the phi phi island tour (recommended by the staff) for 1800 bath and we found out that nobody in the tour paid more 1100. The tour itself was probably the worst one we have had ever: 45 minutes late for the pickup, no safety measures, speedboat speeding at 60 miles per hour racing with another speedboat, and an awful staff. We complained with the manager and they refunded the money, but our day was lost anyways.
Besides the bad tour experience, most of the staff don't speak english, the internet is absolutely useless and the overall experience is not something I would recommend.
