“Heaven is a place on Earth..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We too came for a wedding and what a magnificent place! The location is gorgeous - beautiful views of Klong Son Bay with pristine jungle behind us. My Tripadvisor profile pic is the pool at Aiyapura. I just loved it! Our stay was off to a fantastic start when we were shown to our "absolute beachfront" room, if we wanted anything at all, we only had to ask. The staff were wonderful, courteous and kind, nothing was too much trouble..even when I wanted to go literally a few metres away they would take me in the Golf Buggy, amazing service!
The way the resport was decorated for the wedding day, and wedding reception were stunning. Absolutely everything was thought of and taken care of. I've always dreamed of a tropical island holiday and this far exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a Premier room, (next up from Deluxe) we had room 537 and this is a brilliant beachfr...

We didn't book this place ourselves as it was for a wedding, and would not normally have stayed in this type of accommodation on the island but found the resort excellent, the highlight was the food, arguably the best we had on the island, including the breakfast.
Being the end of the season it was quiet and as a group we had the place virtually to ourselves
The only drawback is the location if you wish to venture out, it's a 200Bht taxi ride to the White Sand beach area each way (I think the local taxi cartel have this sewn up), better still hire a bike from reception if your keen @ 200bht per day it's excellent value.
The resort is surrounded by rain forest on 3 sides, the view over the bay is fantastic looking across to the other islands
If you are looking for a place for a getaway from it all this is it

Room Tip: As far as the villas are concerned It's a little hilly so pick a room that's close to where...

If you don't stay at this beautiful resort and experience a level of service second to none from the amazing staff at Aiyapura, you are doing yourself a dis-service.
This resort caters for all types of travelers and holiday makers from single people through to couples and families.
We were honored to have been a part of a wedding of our good friends and it was one of the best experiences of our lives.
The restaurant had sensational food and the breakfast was a great start to the day.
Our time spent up at the Spa was unforgettable and the Spa Manager in Marissa made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Every staff member at this resort was incredibly friendly, helpful and sincere. If you want a hassle free holiday then stay at the Aiyapura.

The hotel is wonderful! and the staff is very friendly.
The location is beautiful with a private beach and green mountain in the back.
Our room was very clean and we got fresh fruit and water every day!

We would recommend the restaurants in the hotel - they make really good food (thai food as well as international food)!

We also could hire a kayak whenever we wanted and we got fresh beach towels every day.
the only "negative" thing would be the small beach directly at the hotel and that the it wasn't good for swimming in the sea at the hotel beach.

also the shuttle bus to White sand beach is very good. It would have been good with one earlier than 11 o'clock. but it was although a very good service for free.

We certainly will come back to really relax in this wonderful hotel!

The resort has beautiful location. The view of a pool is really nice,it is the best thing for my stay.The breakfast is also good for both of Thai and European guests. If you have any questions or requests the staff is more than willing to help you and check things for you. The price is good and the rooms are spacious with balcony.Don't forget to try the spa,because it is the best one which I ever used it before.

We had a Fantastic Holiday! This resort is beautiful! Its on the sea front surrounded by tropical rainforest. It feels like a tropical island. The rooms were new and clean and had fantastic views over the bay, which is almost untouched. The staff were so friendly and helpful they remembered us and greated us by name around the resort and were great with the kids. The facilities were great, lovely swimming pool and restaurants. We spent a day canoing and snorkelling around the bay. Kayaks and snorkels were provided for free. The Spa is one of the nicest i've seen, the treatments were wonderful and reasonably priced. The resort is about 10 mins drive away from the main beach but there is a free shuttle bus that takes regular trips there and back. It ment we could enjoy the peace and quiet away from the main Tourist strech but it was easily accessable if we fancied going out.

This is a fantastic resort, you get the real "paradise" feel that is so often lost on resorts in Thailand nowadays. The worst thing about our trip was that we had to leave, We will definately be going back. Thank you Aiyapura!!

All the staff has given the most outstanding service, from the porter then to my check in and the room maids and all the staff at the restaurants and this keeps me from coming back.
