Gardens and public areas are well groomed. We had room 8103, ground floor right at the back of the hotel close to the spa and adult pool - very quiet apart from the music playing...

We stayed 2 weeks here and really enjoyed it. Location is great with lots of restaurants and massage nearby. Karon and Patong only a short tuk-tuk ride away plus close to lots of attractions. Some untidiness by leaving finished glasses and room service around for a long time afterwards. Overall very happy!!
