After reading previous reviews here in TripAdvisor I hesitated a bit,...but went for it based on the location (ideal!) and the discounted price (approx 100 euro per night incl. tax). Had I paid a higher rate, I might have been disappointed. It's a nice hotel but no 5-star resort. The rooms were great with THE BEST WI-FI INTERNET I ever... More

The hotel is a good place to stay in chewang beach. Direct access to the beach. Lots it walking to and from the room. Somewhat seemed like a maze Room size is good and decor is pleasant. Caution- no iron available in hotel Daily breakfast was basic. Nothing special about it. Overall good place to stay

What an amazing hotel - from the minute we arrived late at night we were looked after like royalty. We had a superior room - great size and lovely bathroom.
