“Great ambience and vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Although this place is a bit of a struggle to get to (uphill in both directions), it does provide a great reward. The views are stunning, the staff is friendly, the bungalows/rooms are excellent, the food is fantastic, the drinks are generously poured, and there is a great sense of openness and community among the guests. Note: It is NOT on the beach, as it is on a cliff. People with mobility issues may have some problems. But if you can get there, you may not ever want to leave.

Room Tip: There are some bungalows that are not sea facing, so make sure you don't get stuck with one of t...

This place is absolutely stunning. Great view, amazing pool, clean rooms, friendly, helpful staff, comfy hammocks, great food and access to the perfect beach. There's even a very tame parrot that comes down to say hi every now and then and 2 gorgeous golden retrievers.
Having heard some horror stories from other friends staying on the island i'm feeling rather lucky (smug ;) )

Room Tip: Bring sesame seeds for the parrot :)

Would be hard pushed to find anything about this place not to like. The location, pool and view are simply stunning, the staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the rooms are gorgeous (pro rata to budget) and the food and drinks are well prepared and cheap for a resort on Haad Yao. I am almost reticent to review it as I worry it'll get too booked up for my next visit!

Perched atop the hill overlooking haad yao is an amazing little spot at the High Life restaurant. Go for dinner or a drink and relax as along as you please on a reclining mat. absolutely stunning views. listen to some sweet tunes and chat with the locals, grab some wifi time.

I stayed at this resort 5 years ago and knew i had to come back one day as i just loved it back then too. I was not disappointed!! The bungalows are just what you need, we stayed for a few days in a garden bungalow then moved to a seaview for a treat. All were clean, comfortable and had everything you need. The seaview was beautiful, we had views out of each window.

The food and the staff were lovely and the beach just down the steps was crystal clear sea with white sand. The best thing is however the infinity pool looking out over the bay. I will definitely be going back.
