3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

customer service was brilliant, everyone was so nice and helpful. The bungalows were very cute and cosy, but difficult to get to because of the "hillside" area it is situated on. Pool is very nice. Situated on a steep hill and if you are walking everywhere in ko tao it's better to rent a moped. Quite expensive for thailand. Be... More

I had an ocean view room and it was a great room. Comfy bed, good shower. Keep in mind the bathroom doesn't have a door, I was by myself so it was fine. Few things to keep in mind- the hotel have only 2 free shuttles a day to the town, at 8:45 and at 13:00. You want to go... More

The staff is very friendly and helpfull. They made the mistake of booking us a room with twin beds and gave a free upgrade so we could have one double bed. They made us breakfast bags when we had to leave very early in the morning, and they were just overall helpfull and kind. The resort itself looks very nice... More

Amazing view. Which you can enjoy from you room add well add from several great common areas. The resort is a 3 star resort and if such it is great value. Don't expect architecture marvels and 5 star Room service. It is a good and simple resort if you want a great and undisturbed view. Nothing more

One of the highlights of my trip to Thailand! Basic but beautiful bungalows with amazing view over the bay. Nice balcony. Airconditioning, fridge and good wifi. We booked into the cheaper bungalows with a garden view but were upgraded to sea view at check in, at no extra cost. Take note that as the name suggest, this resort is on... More
