“Lovely location, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Situated at the end of Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach with stunning panoramic views of the beach and sea. Good inventory of accommodation in a well maintained hill side location with plenty of tree shade. Consideration to beautify the flat top concrete roofs of some of the cottages and villas with plants is a nice touch. Great pool and lounger area with spectacular vistas. Friendly, attentive staff and a very hands on manager who always seemed to be on duty. Good value for money and very family friendly. Unlike some hotels where drinks and meals are pricey, the prices here were very competitive with some of the local bars and restaurants.
Fast and efficient speed boat service from Koh Samui.

Fantastic rooms very clean and spacious and comfortable. Good service luxury pools good location in the forest but near the beach, even if the sea is not caraibic style. Food is good but not excellent

Very nice hotel placed on a little hill between two beaches. Service and food (3 restaurants) are great and the rooms are very clean and nicely equiped. The hotel has a private beach, unfortunately close to a smal canal with dirty water that gets into the sea at times of high tide. The pool is great and offers a spectacular view over the beach.

Room Tip: We booked a room in the main building but got an upgrade to a deluxe cottage, which is so much nicer...

Good position and fantastic pool, room clean and fascinating. Service very good and polite. Pretty service of taxi to reach the different places in the resort. The resort is not modern but the service is good

Room Tip: Villas with pool are really fascinating even if sometimes you can't see the sea

Set on a cliff top, spectacular coastal views and a great breakfast. I would give this a great 4* rating NOT 5*. The rooms are small, bathrooms are tired, and the overall ambience is one of hotel profit. Unnecessary charges for using hotel kayaks which have been free in other hotels. Expensive shuttles and a sense that staff have a duty to sell, sell sell.

What really let's this hotel down is the mass fencing programme utilising really fake-looking wood, the reception staff are surly and frequently 'tut', a couple items of clothes disappeared but thankfully reappeared in the laundry system, and most disappointingly, a lack of gym. The fitness centre is more akin to children's play park. Metal air walkers, cross trainers that creak and grind etc.

I loved the location. Of an evening one could take a small walk along beachfront and a whole range of eateries It's also worth paying for the VIP transfer as its very James Bond if coming from Koh Samui.

The Executive Chef is so on his game watching over breakfast. Coffee should be 'help yourself' as its frustratingly slow. Loads to like and with small improvements would entice me back.

Room Tip: We had a superior room and this was more than adequate for mum with two children.

we didnt stay at the hotel (although hope to in the future) but did dine on the beachfront restaurant

the location was truly superb - it has to be one of the best located restaurants on the beach in the world, the staff were also amazing in terms of their normal service and the fact that all of the sfaff took turns in looking after our twin grandchildren (without asking i may add)

however what really let the restaurant down was the menu and food. a very short unimaginative thai only menu (not a problem for us as we only ever eat thai food but the menu was underwhelmingi in relation to either a tourist thai restaurant or a roadside shack)

and quite frankly when the food was served it was extremely disappointing. i had the seafood platter where apart from the mussels and the prawn the rest was straight out of a freezer (bizarre when you are sitting right next to the ocean) and tastless and like cardboard. the thai soup tasty but with overcooked fish and the chicken curry with well over done cardboard like chicken. a real disappointment especially given it iwas the most expensive thai food we have had since moving here a year ago

the staff were real let down by the quality of the food - they deserve better as does the location
