“Lovely premises, even lovelier owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This hotel has been the best that I've stayed in in Thailand:
- Clean and new facilities - nothing I could fault here (and I'm quite particular w/r/t this!) Beds were comfortable, shower was nice and hot.
- Super welcoming and very helpful staff - seems to be run by a family. The young(ish) daughter spoke the most English and she was very keen to help us out in any way she could. The hotel is in town, so it's not very close to the best beaches, however she recommended Mae Haad/Koh Ma (which was a fantastic recommendation) and then proceeded to call and organise (and even bargain down) a taxi service to take us there for a day. She also gave us good directions to the night markets.
- Tasty restaurant - good selection of food. And the cocktails are delicious!
- Excellent pool - the water is a perfect temperature (cooler than the sea water, but good for the weather), it's a good lounging area day or night, nice rinse-off shower in the pool area, and they provide beach towels.

The only things that I could pick that people may need (but are definitely not necessary to a great stay):
- No fridge in room
- No hairdryer
- ... that's it. Seriously, don't expect those things and it won't be a problem for your stay!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is a brand new hotel. My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and were the first people to ever check in! The rooms are spacious and have a nice big bathroom with hot showers, our room stepped out on to the pool which was great, it was like having our own private hotel for the first day as we were the only people there, the pool is stunning, by far the best pool we've ever been in, obviously it helps with it being new but you didn't want to get out once you were in. The staff were lovely and helpful, they will also pick you up from the pier (we didn't realise this so we got a taxi) but they kindly dropped us back at the pier on departure, so it is worth arranging with them what time you will arrive in so they can come and collect you. They provided us with a complimentary welcome breakfast and one lady brought us fresh watermelon a couple of times, it has a lovely friendly vibe about the place, definitely recommend. Haad Rin is about 20 mins away and costs 100baht per person, as this is a new hotel a lot of the taxi drivers were unsure where it was, the only way they knew where it was, was by saying it was near Hacienda backpackers on the main road, but hopefully they will soon become more aware as more people start to stay there. Overall a great place to stay and great value for money :)
