The viking resort is very beautiful and peaceful. The hotel owned beach is something out of a post card and long beach is literally a two minute walk. The staff are friendly and the food is really good.
My partner booked the tree house bungalow, with its own private beach as a surprise for us both. We have been to Phi Phi before and stayed on the other side of the island in something similar and we both loved it, but fancied a change. The tree house is beautiful, and very clean. It is about a five minute walk from the main resort.
The second that you take the five minute walk from the main resort to the 'private tree house' the music from the pier is amplified ten times. In fact I think it might be louder here than in the actual bars. The private beach could not be any less private. It is in fact the island football teams football ground, and they play every day at around 5pm. They make sure that they place the football goals right underneath the tree house and they feel the need to shout and scream for approximately two hours. The tree house is also directly located on the footpath to long beach, so expect people to be walking right on by from the very early hours of the evening to around 5pm (just before the football starts). I think the music finishes around 4-5am, so you should get a few hours sleep just before the sun comes up...
The resort is nice, and if your staying in one of the main, big bungalows then its worth a stay. However I would not recommend the tree house to anybody.
