By far the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed. 10 out of 10 on their service, cleanness and overall facility. We stayed at their villa that has very large infinity pool that has the best view ever. Also the next morning we went to their restaurant (on the top of the hill). It has THE BEST view ever. I wish I could eat there every morning. Drawback: can't find any drawback. If I have to, I have to say that this is the tropical area. So your linens are kind moistly but not that bad really, not hotel's fault.

Amazing
Amazing resort! So beautiful, accommodating staff, great food and at night it is totally silent as if it were our own private island. This may be the best place I have EVER stayed.

Great, relaxing hotel stay
Incredible hotel. Decor, design, service and food were great! The place is beautiful and well designed. Shuttles help get you around, as its large and the hills are steep. The rooms are amazing, and the balcony with sea view and tub is awesome. The breakfasts are great, and the buffet dinners are really good and well priced as well. A weird thing was they sign you out beach/pool towels, but make you turn them in before the pool closes...didnt make any sense. Definitely worth the trip from Phuket, and would recommend to everyone!
