We had the only villa with private pool. This stood out compared to other rooms in the hotel for luxury cleanliness and modern. Breakfast average and restaurant expensive. location exellent but the hotel is in badly need of a renovation

Thank you for your review I am very glad you liked our pool villa. We took over the resort last year and we are slowly upgrading the whole resort. We have made many changes but as you point out there is still work to be done.

In a beautiful spot. Stayed in a Garden Villa. Although a bit dated, it was nice and clean. The staff were friendly and only too happy to help with whatever I needed. A very relaxed atmosphere, was a lovely secluded place to relax and recharge. Great value for money, will definitely be back.

Thank you for the great review. Our garden villas have not been updated to the standard of the other villas yet. At the moment we have kept them as a cheaper option. I am very glad you loved the relaxing atmosphere and hope you come back soon.

I'll be short because it is that simple: if you like a quiet, yet lively place, shallow crystal water bay surrounded by dramatic huge rocks and coconut trees, excellent food and top infrastructure - this is the place for you in koh samui. The location is perfect - hidden from the crowds, just 5-10 minutes drive from any worth-to-visit site...

We booked a sea view bungalow and glad we did. The view from our room was stunning! Our room looked newly renovated, was nicely decorated and was very clean. The two things that bothered me about the room were that that there were several visible stains on the sheets. I sincerely believe that they were clean sheets but still it...

Glad you loved the view! I am sorry for the stains on the sheets, they are caused by the water the laundry uses which sometimes is red due to the colour of the earth here. We do replace sheets when they are stained but these ones must have slipped through. I am suprised about the ventilation in the bathroom and...

I was a bit dubious about booking here as I saw a lot of mixed reviews. Also I realized after booking that the sea view bungalows had just all been refurbished and I had a booked a garden view one, which I couldn't change.

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the beach. I would like to address some of your points. You say there was no one to take your luggage. This is because our porter was taking someone else's bags at the time. Sometimes this happens and usually guests are happy to wait a couple of minutes for him...

Yacht club is a big word but the rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Big fridge and most of them have a glimps at the beach. Not really a Thai athmosphere and the service was a bit unpersonal but a good place if you like luxery over experience. You will need a bike or car to get you...

Thank you for your review. The name of the resort is a bit confusing! It comes from the old owner many years ago. There are 5 or 6 restaurants and a mini market in the immediate area. Our resort is very popular with familys particularly in the summer and winter holidays.
