Firstly this hotel has the most spectacular beach with what seems like an aquarium filled with marine life just a few meters off shore. The rooms are comfortable and you have the option of one with AC or with fan. I think the AC rooms/bungalows only come with comp breakfast? The food was surprisingly good with enough options and well presented and good flavour. Breakfast also good, all fresh and good flavour. Staff at the desk are helpful and speak decent English. The pool is nice and deep as they do dive training in it. If you want to travel around the island, you should hire a bike or car before arriving at the hotel as they cannot book it for you. A private taxi from the hotel costs about 400 baht. Without own transport you are a bit secluded. There are a few neighboring hotels but steep hills and undeveloped roads make you reluctant to go off property. In short I would stay here again and maybe I will book diving lessons as I hear you get a discount on rooms?
