Be prepared for a venture to get to this hotel. If you know about this it's not a problem. It is worth the time. It's about 2 3/4 hour drive from Phuket (Patong) to Krabi and a 1 1/2 hour boat trip plus transfer from pier/hotel to Krabi. Once you arrive into Krabi its another short boat trip over to...

The Best hotel we have ever tried. The staff is very friendly and very helpsome. It has its own beach,, so it is relaxing with few people. You can lend kayak and paddleboard for free for 1 hour. The wifi connection cold be better.

We stayed in one of the pool villas over New Year and we absolutely loved it. The check in was so easy with James meeting us as soon as we got off the boat. The villa's are so roomy and beautiful views. I loved watching the monkeys in the trees and the roof tops. We certainly got a lot of...

We have a handicap in our family. We received a room on the ground floor as requested, but who would have thought you have to hike down 15 steps to the ground floor. This happens when the resort is located on a hillside. My advice for you with handicap is to be clear to request a room with no stairs...

Amazing hotel on a private beach. Close enough to everything to have access to tours, shops, restaurants, but away from the hustle and bustle of town. To get to town you take a lovely set of steps and a trail (where you might run into some monkeys!). Takes about 10 minutes and you are on a busy beach with boat...

A surpurb exclusive location a short boat ride from the pier and Ao Nang. Some extra boats to cater for the transfers would be a great improvement. But that's all the negative feedback i have.

Spent 3 nights here going into the New Years holiday. 1st thing is if you don't speak Thai have the resort book a transfer for you as you may have a hard time explaining where you need to go. Even though the resort is very close to Ao Nang it can only be accessed by boat. The boat runs only...

“Even the lowest cost room was amazing. "Garden view" was all that was left when we booked and even that was fantastic. I imagine the ocean view and the villas are even more amazing. ”

“We had a top floor (third level, no lift, take it slowly) deluxe sea view room which was almost a suite, with sitting area, 2 king size beds (very comfortable) a large wet room with rain shower and free standing bath and a balcony with 2 daybeds. All spacious and clean. The apartments are semi-detached, so any noise level on the balcony would depend on your neighbours.”
