This place has amazing views, the bungalows are ok but most doors dont shut properly! There are lots of bugs cause of the location, also the setting on the hillside you need to be extremely fit I go to the gym 4 times a week and I struggled getting around its so steep needs to be more golf cart services!...

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
