Thank you for your wonderful 5 star review. I am glad you enjoyed Rock Salt restaurant which is located on the other end of the beach.

This hotel is at a really great location and has beautiful rooms with seaview. The first night we have totally enjoyed this room and the second night we stayed in a economy room because the seaview room was already booked. The economy room is still good, smaller and could use a bit of painting, But it's totally worth your money....

Thanks for your great review. Regarding motorbike hire, as we do not hire bikes out ourselves all we do is recommend companys which we know to be reputable. On Koh Samui all the bike hire places take a passport as a deposit unfortunately. I am sorry if our receptionist offended you, sometimes its hard for them to explain things and...

My daughter and I stayed in room A4 for 8 nights and left the hotel yesterday.The room was absolutely fine with our own balcony which fronted the swimming pool.

I rented their deluxe room which was pretty basic for the rent they charge. The room was built on steps on a small hill. So there were lot of ants etc. Besides this I had an amazing time at this hotel. More so because the staff was really great, they were friendly, helpful and smiling. The restaurant of the hotel...

Thanks for your great review. I think part of our popularity is that we are on such a beautiful and tranquil beach but still not too far from the nightlife when you want to party. Glad you enjoyed our beach massage. We think it has the most beautiful view of any massage on the island.

What a great place this was to stay! We had an ocean view room with our own little balcony and boy were the views fantastic. The sea was right at our door step with warm water and white sandy beaches. Absolutely perfect! The service was all that we could ask for and more, and the restaurant was perfect with a...

This place has a wicked view of silver Beach (delux room with sea view). Compared to le meridien,You can walk outside of your door and jump into the ocean. Not to mention free breakfast for the fraction of the price. Great place for backpackers!

I stayed here for a week, looking for a quiet getaway. This was perfect. Far enough away from the bustle of both Chewang and Lamai, but close enough if I wanted it.

We came here after our stay at Ark Bar on Chaweng and it was paradise in comparison. The breakfast buffet was good, but you have to wake up early or the selection will be somewhat poor. The room was very spacious, I would suggest leaving your sandals by the door to not bring in too much sand as the room...

Thanks for your review. Yes, we are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng. We do advise customers to be very careful riding motorbikes and we recommend then to hire from the front desk where we only use reputable companys.

Nice hotel with beautiful view. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very poor. Food in the hotel restaurant is not so good. You can try burger but do not try "dinner menu" - trust me.
