    I was amazed by how hotel has such a unique interior and breathtaking view. Staffs were nice and helpful. Breakfast was average, nothing special but couldn't compare with other 5 star hotels I used to stay. Drinks and cocktails did not worth paying at that price. I don't mind paying at this price but expect to see more variety and dedication to the food and drinks

    Stayed here for two weeks during the virus crisis and it was a perfect place to be...very safe and secluded. I enjoyed the food, the staff was wonderful and my room was perfect. I am shocked that some people complained about the service, never once did I have an issue. Yes, the hill is an issue, but the transportation by truck is easy and I never had to wait more than a few minutes for one to arrive. I would highly recommend this place. I would also recommend that you rent a scooter in town and take a ride around the island...the other beaches were wonderful and the people very friendly. Go see Tom down on the beach and rent the scooter there.

    Disappointing Management Team

    Disappointed by the management’s response to coronavirus outbreak. My wife and I had to cancel our trip to Thailand and did not receive a response from the hotel’s management team when we let them know. Our room went vacant last week and we have still not heard back.

    View is amazing. The hotel is on hill so every room has an amazing balcony. But the beach is relatively small and water is not as clean as pipi island. Staff are very kind and helpful. We need to take loop bus if we wanna go anywhere inside resort. SPA is not recommended. I arranged signture massage for my parents who cant speak English. When I return to pick them up, I found masseurs are not doing their job properly but softly dawdling along. Btw, the young boy who carrys clients' huge luggages on pier for speed boat deserve some tip.
