First of all, the booking system is terrible. I don't understand why they don't rely on main booking providers. I got so many troubles to get the room booked.
Then I need to say that for the price we paid (about 5500 bath/night for the moonlight suite), I was excpecting much more from this resort. The room was dark and made me feel like in a cellar. The pictures on their website does absolutely not reflect the truth.
Another thing is that there was not water available all the time. I understand the problem since koh tao is a small remote island, but when you have two small childrens and sometime need an emergency shower, it is really not appreciated.
All the staff, which are essentially guys from myannmar except the manager, are absolutely not service minded. They don't speak thai and very poor english, almost never smile and most of the time don't understand what you ask.
The only not disapointing point was for me the view from the pool. But I wonder how often they change the water with all the water problem they have.
To sum up, it would have been ok for the half of the price but definitely not for the very high price they ask. We ended up leaving one day early and felt so releaved when leaving that resort.
