“Own private paradise”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Went to this beach most days we were on the island, the water was divine, the beach was almost immaculate and virtually deserted, save for a local fisherman that waded past with his net. The kids and hubby delighted in watching what he dragged in. There is a reef further out within very easy snorkel distance, never explored it though.

“Nive beach but awful swimming”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went to this beach while staying on Samui. Took around 40 minutes from Chaweng where I had my hotel. The beach itself is nice; very quiet and some really nice small restaurants. But the swimming water was terribly bad; full of rocks and no water at all.

“Very Good Beach”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The beach is great with the all its simplicity and natural beauty. The place is amazing for couples or for backpackers who intend to soul-search. It's very quiet and calming. The spa massage was good although it could be better. The pool was good too and looked more like a lagoon with all the lush vegetation around it. There's really nothing fancy but given that it's a budget resort, it's great value for my money. The staff is accommodating and friendly. The cabins are well-kept and gives you the privacy that you need given the distance from one to another. We dined al fresco while watching the sun set, stripped down of the posh Western accessories. I was expecting a bit more from the beach, like maybe clearer waters, but the sand was fine and yellowish which makes it more appealing. All in all, my wife and I enjoyed our time and it was all worth the trip.

“Quiet Beach”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you want to relax this is a good place to do it. There are not many people around. On the other hand you better bring everything you want because there isn't much around if you need something.
