I liked this hotel, close to the Pier for transportation and a great place to relax. Its far away enough from the hustle of the main town (10 min walk). we had sea views, a private beach and not many tourist business going on around the hotel.
The info online does need updating, as there is no longer a floating deck restaurant on the sea. As a consequence, a new restaurant is being built next to the hotel. Sadly we did have to endure a team of carpenters hammering throughout the day for 12 hours. Not ideal when relaxation is required.
The good news for future visits, there will be a new restaurant next year.
The Team at reception were very welcoming. (Ammy was very helpful).
The rooms are great, perhaps they are dark but I found the dim lighting to be cosy and relaxing after a day in the sun.
the whole place is clean and new, I like the ambience and style of the place (even though I dislike the colour orange, it works).
Breakfast is good and efficient service too.
If you book online with a travel site, its a good idea to research times of 'Samed resorts' free ferry.
This is the hotel companies own ferry service that takes you to the pier close to the resort. We had taken the bus to Ban Phe and took the main ferry.
On return to mainland, the Hotel and ferry staff were most helpful, including a car to the Bus station.
This is a great place to stay. We will return.
