My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at this hotel, it ticked all the boxes for me: *It's on the beach *The food was superb *The staff are all very attentive and speak English fluently *Plus it's only a ten minute walk from the gym! Would definitely come back again!

I would like to have a nice atmosphere dinner so I booked this place. The atmosphere is not that private as I expected but over all is nice. You can ask for some mosquitos spray from the waiter also lol. There are mixed style of Thai and western food.

The hotel is located in Chaweng area on the beachfront. Very convenience to nightlife and shopping mall. Breakfast are limited but great and serve with sea view in the morning. Got free upgrade to the Deluxe Suite, the room is huge and provide all facilities. Reasonable price and would strongly recommend anyone who would like to visit Samui.
