Fair2.0 / 5
Failed on the little things
There are a lot of good things here, but the bad would keep me away in the future. First, it is extremely secluded, to the point where it's eerie. Second, the beautiful rooms mask the poor attention to detail - the AC didn't work in my room (they moved me), there was a massive roach in my bathroom, the pool was dirty, the floors creaked terribly, there was no free Wi-Fi, it's just a little too far from an underwhelming beach, staff were hard to find, my room phone didn't work, and things were just a touch more expensive than they needed to be. It's a pretty place with friendly and helpful staff, but when you get to the details, they botch the entire experience.

Nice silent place
We stayed there for 6 days and were happy with the service provided by the hotel. Nice silent area, friendly stuff, good service. Free car transfer to the beach. Anyway the beach is 15 minutes away on foot.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Tranquil Oasis
I wanted peace and quiet, a good night's sleep, and good food within easy reach. That is what I got. I would have preferred faster and more stable internet but this is Thailand and the internet here was slightly better than typical (nowhere has stable fast internet.) It is a bit of an odd place if you're expecting a traditional hotel as I was. It is neither of those things. It is a collection of premium, large, boutique vacation villas and a few smaller villas such as the one I stayed in. The price is a bit high if you want a simple stopover, and it is a bit remote if you want beach or easy shopping access. However if you want a comfortable oasis away from everything, this is the right place. Also the restaurant was a centerpiece and the Chef took great pride in the food. I didn't stay for more than a breakfast, which was excellent. I could nitpick about a few things but this is Thailand and everything here has its quirks. The complaints in the reviews I read seemed people like missing the view because of looking too much at the smudges on their eyeglasses.

Poor1.0 / 5
Too isolated
None of the taxi drivers at the Jetty pier knew of this resort.Tiny lane leading to resort and the main road were completely dark. There were no shops/eating stalls/massages within walking distance, altho hotel reception said there were within 10-15mins walk. Had to walk back in the dark. Too many dogs barking and on the loose. Room altho big and beautifully decorated, had so many bugs. Safe didn't work. Was told i was the only guest at the bungalows so it was quite creepy for me should anything happen. Reception closed at 8pm. At breakfast two large dogs (resort pets) "greeted" me. Not everyone loves dogs esp in that size. I was terrified so breakfast was delivered to my bungalow instead. Breakfast was delicious- Quality french pastries, butter croissants and coffee. Understandbly, i left after one night altho i had paid for two.
