During our stay, the staffs were absolute stars! They are extremely kind and friendly, and they do everything they can to help you :) The hotel, room and the pool were all really lovely like paradise, very clean and modern as well :) The location is a bit remote from everything so if you're someone who wants to go out all the time, you might need some extra money for taxi trips. But if you want to chill and relax, this is an absolute gem! Would defo stay there again and highly recommend to anyone :)

A really nice resort. The staff were friendly and happy to assist with all tours and excursions. We liked the private beach and the adults only pool is a good option. The free shuttles to Au Nang and Krabi were a pleasant surprise and are frequent enough for flexibility. There is also a free shuttle to the grocery store just 3 minutes drive. Highly recommended.

Almost everything was perfect. But restaurant food was not worth for price. However, breakfast buffet was good enough.

Amazing hotel and staff! All facilities are new and it is a great value for money. All the staff that helped us organise our day to day activities were great - we booked a number of island tours through the hotel and every day was organised very smoothly with pick up from the hotel and for a good price. The spa is also wonderful, offering some great massages. I would 100% stay again. Thank you all for making our trip so excellent!

ocean view room
ocean view room was amazing. good sport facilities. we made good use of the shuttle service into ao nang but one improvement would be to have greater capacity for this shuttle service. Food options in hotel wasn’t great (but found an amazing thai restaurant 5 mins walk which we went to for lunch 4 out of 5 days)
