Rooms very comfortable - our group had two rooms, one by the pool and one on the first floor. An easy walk to the nearby beach. Walk back at night was... More

The room it's self was fairly average in this hotel. It was clean and well kept but the AC in our room was poor (the worst we've had in Thailand). The pool in the hotel is also alot smaller than it looks in the pictures and is in mostly shade for a good portion of the day. That being said... More

The owners and the staffs are very friendly and helpful. The place is lovely, decorated with elegance and the breakfast... Please ask for omelets !!! DELICIOUS!!! The location is not so close to the beach so be aware of that, you might need to rent a car or a scooter. :)

If you want a chilled out holiday in a friendly place, with fantastic owners here is the place to come. Bruno and Isabelle are the perfect host, where nothing is too much trouble and are always on hand to give advice about the places off the beaten track. Breakfast is copious and delicious! Will definitely be back.
