“Could be better”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Deluxe villa is not too bad. Seems like they tried to cram as many rooms as they could into the property though, which is a shame.

Beach is awful, restaurant not too bad. Another case of lack of finishing touches that could have made the place so much better.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

Your observation will help us to see what we could patch up for more improvement especially our accommodation rooms.

we are now on the focus in making some retouches of the facilities of the rooms and restaurants.

The Focus of beach clean up was also on the steak now.

We hope that you can visit us again in one of your future holidays to see the improvement we had.

Thank you .

We had booked 4 villas (room no.412 ,416,417,421) at a rip off price for 7 nights through the scoopon deals..the resort is beautifully laid out each room here is a villa ,the rooms here are really spacious and clean plus they have an outdoor bathroom which is awesome.the staff is very good and pleasant.the thai food in the restaurant is one of the best ive eaten so far in kohsamui. Breakfast is good and filling but the menu is almost the same everyday.the property is a little off from the main chaweng strip but you could hire a bike and move swiftly to anywhere on the island...all in all its worth staying at this resort

My boyfriend and I came across this little gem, when we arrived in Chaweng.
With the picturesque views of the beach from the infinity pool it's the perfect place to chill and soak up the sun.
Rooms are clean and have everything you need, although the water could run a little hot and cold.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Well situated, quite spot, 15 minuet stroll into shops and nightlife.
Would stay her again.

Excellent facilities and very well priced- far enough from the crowds in Chaweng market but not too far either. The pool is great and the hotel's beach is rather pretty too. The cottages are lovely. Overall a very charming place and amazing value for money.

The place has a real charm. I've stayed four times over a number of years and have loved it each time. The bungalows are basic but have everything you need, the beach feels very private and the pool is lovely. Great value for money.

My friend and I booked the room for 30 Dec till 1 Jan 2014. We understood that the price was being more than double during this time. Overall the hotel is ok in terms of amenities including fast, punctual air port transfer, shuttle van to Chaweng Business centre. My only concerned would be the compulsory gala dinner on New Year eve. Paying 3000 baht per person we expected more but e it seemed like being scammed through and through. Before coming here, we had emailed asking us being Muslim and the Front Office Manager (Surasak Hongsaeng had replied on 2 Dec 2013 that special menu will be prepared for us. Regrettably this did not happened and we were left to eat very little choice not worth paying. Other than that, the hotel cunningly as us to order drinks before (with exorbitant price no less) before the menu spread was opened. Can’t 3000 baht per person cover the cost of drink even for the non-alcoholic one?
All in all i would like to stay here again during non festival time.

We acknowledge your comment for the recent conclusion of our Gala dinner last Dec. 31,2013. We would like to extend our apology for the said information we had relayed for the special food for non vegetarian guest as we were not able to re-announce the said food location upon your arrival on the dinner buffet line.

We are very glad that overall the resort had made your stay a good one only that the gala dinner was not been the one you are expecting. We will consider this observation in order that we have the room for improvement regarding the preparation and more inclusion on our gala dinner food.

We hope that you can drop by our property again in one of your future holiday.
