We stayed here for 5 nights on a trip around Thailand and Malaysia. I will never forget this Island, along with Redang the most beautiful I have seen, white sandy beaches, fabulous snorkelling, right off the beach. On a boat snorkelling trip we saw a black tipped reef shark and got up close and personal with a large turtle. Unforgettable.
I booked it knowing it was not great, but was only one available at the right price about 3 months in advance. It has such a great location, I guess it doesn't really matter about the hotel as people such as us will always come.
Terrible service - arrived at check in time and had to wait 2 hours to access our room. I heard other people complaining too. The staff just sort of look at you when you complain.The bungalows are huge, loads of space and ours was back from the beach in the jungle, amazing sounds at night. But the power kept going out which was infuriating. Pool looked dirty and uninviting, but I suppose you don't really need it. We were already forewarned about the bad food, so didn't eat here once. Walked to next door and Watercolours which we enjoyed. Great wildlife, saw huge fruit bats and flying squirrels whilst just walking to dinner.
If I ever had the chance I would return to the Island like a shot - but I would stay elsewhere.More
