The resort was clean, the staff very friendly. Our room was spacious enough. With a good size balcony. Three swimming pools, which meant that you could swim without it being overcrowded. A buffet breakfast each morning was ample, with lots of variety. The only problem was that if you couldn't handle stairs, there were many of them. A lift was... More

Nicely designed resort to have view of mountains and ocean together. Bit far from the airport though. The Karon Beach is not the best as it was restricted to swim. However it gives you the feeling of being very close to nature. If you are lover of hiking, perfect place. The prices is fair for a luxury hotel. If you... More

Fair priced hotel, built against the hill on less then 300 meters from the beach. Situated a little on the outside of the village, it is a nice 5 minute walk to the center of town. The hotel has lots of facilities. At least three wonderful pools , towel and bar service. Good beds. High speed wifi available too. If... More

The staff are wonderful, the rooms are below average, the buffet breakfast is cold (it's supposed to be hot!) and the path to your room is stairs, stairs and more stairs. There are 4 pools which includes a kiddie pool. They were lovely and refreshing. You get what you pay for, or DON'T pay for here. It is a good... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very nice.
