Great and beautiful location. The wifi was not working, so no internet access at the resort. Prices of the stay are super high, for Thai standards. We had a room with 3 beds, for 3 persons, but only 2 towels, 2 glasses, 2 soap, etc. No welcome drink. Orange juice at breakfast is sugary orange lemonade. Alltogether, this resort was...

This Resort is quite unique. We traveled here by boat and stayed in a Thatched Roof Cottage. It was somewhat "tired" but somewhat comfortable. There was a "reasonable" breakfast, included, and a fairly priced dinner available.

Situated on a river it gives the impression of being well away from civilization, my impressions come from one a night stay, we took in our suit cases when we should have taken just overnight bags. It appeared that the bulk of residents were over 40. 3 days relaxing would have been nice. Food was good, internet worked for us,...

The garden (this is not jungle) is great and beautiful. The food itself and the prices of the food and of the rooms are ok but the prices of activities are 10 times higher than average with no reason!?! For example kayaking in Krabi is 200 bats for the first hour and 100 bats for each consequitiv hour, while in...

Dear Gogo K, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your opinions. As the matter of fact, comparing the prices between 2 different locations is simply not valid. It is the economics - demand and supply. Our costs are probably higher than Krabi province where you also have a number of suppliers competing each other. The costs of...

This is a a peaceful hotel-resort where people sleep in duplex huts...it has great ambiance....It has a single pool to lounge in, and for the adventurous, a walking path to a cave. You take a boat to get to the resort, which is on a peninsula.... This is a great hotel for younger folks but not good for the old...

We (my husband, our mothers and I) spent a night here. We love the long tail boat ride to the resort. It is great for someone who look for hideaways. The cellphone reception is not stable. Wi-fi only at the pool area. The room is clean but dated. Bed sheet doesn't smell good. You have to eat dinner at the...

We stayed her 2 nights during our trip to the River Kwai. A lovely hotel, 1 of 4 hotels on the River. The individual bungalows are lovely, well furnished even with hairdryer and TV should you require and a discreet distance from each other so not intrusive. There is a small pool and towels are provided. We did the Virgin...

“Internet coverage is weak in rooms but free wifi at lobby lounge should suffice. It is a back-to-nature kind of resort anyway so it is best to stay off the internet for a while and experience the surrounding nature. ”
