Stayed here for 3 nights over October full moon party. I came with a friend and having spent a few nights in Bangkok previously we wanted somewhere to chill out before the FMP.
This place is quite far from the action of Haad Rin but there's plenty of restaurants and small bars within walking distance. The hill is a bit of a pain but when you get to the top you realise why as the views are stunning!
Rooms were great, spacious, clean. Couldn't ask for anymore. The pool is great and often had it to ourselves.
The real jewel in the crown though was the service. The girl on reception Wii can't do enough for guests, no fake smiles here she genuinely cares for her guests and it shows. All the staff were great too.
The food was average but being a hotel that I would imagine doesn't get much 'food only' trade due to its location it's not bad. I'd recommend eating there if nothing else for you to experience the almost 'treehouse' experience of watching the views. Also on the menu is pizzas which they order in from a local place.
Wii kindly organised a taxi to the full moon party for us, it was good as it gave us a chance to meet up with other guests and we all stayed in a big group at the FMP.
Overall I can't speak highly enough of this place. Of the few weeks I spent travelling around Thailand this place knocked spots off everywhere else I stayed. As we left (for Patong) we regretted not staying longer.
