An absolutely lovely resort where the staff and attention to detail make the resort. The villas are gorgeous with an amazing view and the resort is on the best beach on the island.

In addition, the price against many other pool villas is favourable. A definite 'recommend' from me.

Room Tip: 1103 - the pool wasn't overlooked at all. Some of the villas do have very slightly overlooked pool so do be careful

The place is awesome with heavenly view, with a pool between you villa and the sea.
But truly too many mosquitoes, but as we are with the baby, we don't use the intense and I personally was bitten all night and the sleep is not sound enough.

We spent 12 nights in the resort and we had a wonderful honeymoon. The villa and its view were amazing. The staff was very friendly and the cooks are fantastic! The live music played during dinner was nice too. There is really nothing to complain about. It is a great place to relax - far away from busy Phuket! One day we will come back!

We have been there one week ago for only 4 nights.
The hotel is not finished yet and we've booked only a room and got a Pool-Villa because the rooms are not finished... only the Pool-Villas :-)
The entrance of the Hotel and the public-pool is very bad because no nice atmosphere.
And it is so expensive for Thailand there. Also the Spa and the meals. The Spa has the same prices like in Switzerland.
The food was good.
The Pool-Villa was very nice!!! ;-)
And the trip to the Phi-Phi-Islands was also very nice but for 120 Dollar..very expensive.

We are 20 and 23 years old and for us it was to calm and the beach is not so nice to swim and it has only 3 other restaurants closed by the hotel.

Room Tip: choose a room and get a Pool-Villa!!! minimum for the next month yet
