We stayed here for 3 nights in a 2 bedroomed villa and overall a positive experience. We were put into a 3 bedroomed villa but the 3rd bedroom was closed off (showing us what we couldn't have, we were 3 friends), but this villa got us a bigger pool and lounge area. The villa was lovely, private pool, plenty of... More

We are staying in a 1 bedroom villa with a plunge pool for 4 nights. The villa is in decent size and would be perfect if the pool could be bigger. And I have to say we could hear voices from next door. One good thing with the resort is its proximity from a supermarket and a local night market... More

Amazing property, beautiful villas, pool, roof top balcony. Staff really friendly and helpful, they go the extra mile to make your trip good. Breakfast service was amazing too. I can't recommend it high enough. Close to the beach, but need to take a taxi or the shuttle bus. And the restaurant across the road was amazing for children, with some... More

We recently stayed here for two nights and were very pleased with the 1 bedroom apartment. We had a private jacuzzi which was lovely. There were soft drinks included in room service. Was good value for money and the beach was a ten minute walk away with a shuttle bus service. The pool on the beach that you can use... More

Perfect holiday. Perfect apartment. Shame about the location. Tuk tuks are everywhere but rent a car. The room was far away from the reception and required the buggy as we didnt stupidly hire a car. Otherwise perfect. Pool could be heated as our room didnt get much sun. Bang Tao is perfect for halal food.

Stayed here for 10 nights, modern resort which appeared welcoming on arriving. We booked a one bedroom plunge pool villa, but we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom pool villa on arrival, we honestly couldn't believe it.

Absolutely loved ts taint here as my villa was just gorgeous and felt so private and quiet. It was perfect for myself and bridesmaids to get ready in for my wedding as it had plenty of space and the main bedroom was large and laid out nicely. Staff were also very friendly and efficient!

Gorgeous private location remotely located. Staff very attentive and amazing amenities - INCLUDING the SPA!!; however, you need to have transportation. My daughter and I were not comfortable driving on the opposite side of the car and road so we elected safety and took cabs. The resort booked the cabs/travel for you but added their cut.
