This place is unique. (I stayed late nov.15) All of the staff offer top notch service from start to finish. And beyond... Even the extra service like our waterfall guide Olivier, the walkway trail pick up service by Luc and the superb cooking classes by Nat were complimentary. The grounds are so well kept and the rooms are the cleanliest... More

If you're keen for an option on the 'quiet' side of the island look no further (assuming they are able to keep operating - fingers crossed for you guys). We are not fans of the over-developed Thai island culture - if you're looking for the mess of bars, resorts and backpackers crowding every inch of sand then go to the... More

Had four nights in this wonderful place. It's peaceful, friendly and very comfortable. The hosts are welcoming, helpful and run an excellent business. Breakfast is different every day with home made juices, jams and preserves. The dinner menu is diverse and the standard of cooking and service is just about as good as you can get. The location is stunning... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Mangrove Hideaway and didn't want to leave. I have never felt so well looked after as we did here. Olivier and team seem to know what you want before you do! They took us in their boat to a little beach on a deserted island and the boat was packed with water, towels, beach... More

Great places are like shadows of great people? Not easy to tell about but all this, the upper rest zone, the super food, flowers, plants, ambiance, little details, rules of respect, care and professionalism adds up to something truly delicious. Oliver and captain Luc do care about every detail and this is not only perfect service, but introduction to this... More

My partner spent a fair amount of time researching the location for this holiday and I left it entirely in his hands. I knew we were going to stay in a quiet fishing village in a non-touristy area of a beautiful Thai island, but what I did not know was that we would be staying in Paradise! I exaggerate not!...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in mid November and were very impressed with this small resort. The rooms and public areas are thoughtfully decorated, and Luc, Olivier and the rest of the staff are welcoming and attentive. This is a lovely part of the island, and there was enough to keep me occupied for a couple of... More

When we came from Moscow (about 24-hours road), Luke (one of the hotel owners) met us and offered his care and attentiveness from the first minute. Every time when we were going somewhere, he offered us the best way how to do that: he gave us a big bottle of drinking water and waterproof bag when we walked to the... More
