Beautiful resort on the sea shore with the pristine ocean on one side & the mountains at the back. The lay-out is expansive & the beach happens to be a private one. The sea most of the time remains calm enough in this part with the odd rough day. The ocean facing bungalows provide for quite a sight & are the most sought after rooms. The rooms are of standard size but the amenities therein might leave one a bit disappointed. It is advisable to carry a three pin adapter. The sanitary fittings seem to be from another century & definitely need an immediate upgrade. They often leak as well. The television present is an outdated one & there are no international channels on offer with reception quality being very poor. The pool is a fairly large one although not an Olympic sized one. The food is quite good & the breakfast spread sumptuous but not lavish. But one would be tempted to explore the scores of restaurants near the resort than have a meal here all the time. Worth a try if one is looking for tranquillity with a good view.

Small room with no view. AC broke so had to move next door. Full of arrogant German and Russian tourists. Long walk down a dirty dusty road to the centre full of rubbish. The private beach however is nice with alright food being served at the beach bar.

It is not a luxury accommodation but the location is probably one of the best in Chawen Noi. The standard room is clean, with air conditioning. We had a room outside of the main complex but close to the restaurant, which has a nice terrace at the sea.

The staff are super friendly nothing is too much bother they always have a smile on their faces. Beach is clean with a great bar so cold drinks at your fingertips. My room was clean with a huge king bed, this has one of the biggest pools on the island. Great place to stay.
