A very nice place! The beach is wonderful, room very clean and people working on the beach very kind. Also the diving center is well organized and guides very very friendly. the restaurant is very good, where you can taste thai food or international food.
One suggestion: please CHANGE receptionists!!!! Not really polite, never a smile!!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We missed our ferry to Ko Tao were we had booked a room already and decided to splash out a bit and stay here.

On arrival to see if they had a room I was able to barter down to a very competitive rate and it was the best place we stayed in for the whole time in Thailand. Cocktails by the pool were served and the price was fantastic and a discount was given to those staying there.

The whole place had a fantastic feel to it and the beach and poolside were well kept and staff were very friendly and helpful.

My only criticism would be the evening meal which wasn't great and we were the only ones in the restaurant, however the setting and service made up for it. We were even told that most people wander out of an evening and that's why it wasn't too busy.

Overall it was the ideal hotel for us with bundles of personality and we will be returning when we go back to Thailand next Easter.

This is our 4 th time here and sadly it will be our last. In the 12 years that we been coming here the resort just has not kept up with the times and tourists expectations. The rooms are still ok and outlook nice but that's where it ends. Staff are the unfriendliest I have encountered in Asia. Pool beds are old and stained, towels are all freyed, breakfast very plain, no pool side service at all, in fact you are better off getting drinks from the hawkers. Can't imagine this resort being able to compete now. We still have our happy memories but sadly this trip not so good.

This was the third resort that we stayed in at Koh Samui & the best. We stayed in a lovely villa overlooking the beach & beautiful tropical gardens. The villa was outstanding, with a waterfall shower, tv, mini fridge, lighted wardrobe,settee, 7ft bed, huge balcony with loungers & table & chairs....The extra little touches are oil burners, flowers, newspapers & a selection of DVDs. The resort is situated just outside the very busy Chaweng, but near enough to walk or hire a bike to visit the shops & restaurants aplenty. The staff are helpful & there is a nice pool with comfortable sun loungers & free table tennis if thats your thing. We prefered the beach, which was absolutely beautiful! Again, there are free sunbeds & an island that you can wade or Kayake across to. Watch you don't get sunburnt though. There is a Spa in the Resort Grounds & the staff are very knowedgable. It is actually run by a qualified nurse. I have limited movement in one of my arms & one treatment helped. I should have gone back for more but there is so much to do in Koh Samui....You get a free half hour "jet lag" massage on checking in, which cured a headache that I had. They give you beveridges & you can spend the day there if you want to. Lovely & relaxing. The whole place smells of tropical flowers & the staff work hard maintaining the pretty gardens. You will see a few tropical birds flying around too. I am really missing this place.....

Room Tip: Beach front, but it is a little expensive at this time of year. Our friends paid £30 a night in June...
