We stayed here for four days during christmas, and had two adjoining bungalows with its own swimming pool. The kids lives that they could jump into the pool first thing in the morning. The view from the bungalows was breathtaking (see photo). Very calm and quiet place, it can be both a blessing and a bore. Have to book a...

Perfect getaway, trully paradise beach. Beautiful surroundings. The hotel is amazing- we stayed in pool beach villa and in superior villa. Superior is great and the price is nice, the villa was spacious and near the beach, the bathroom was an outdoor one- clean & tidy. The pool beach villa is stunning and worth every penny- first row on the...

Booked to stay for 6 nights at Glow in early January. Unfortunately very disappointed before we even arrived. Our boat from Phuket to the island left early and we were left stranded at a pier after getting a taxi with a very aggressive driver who tried to con us to double the fair. We were very lucky to meet an...

We stayed here last month for 6 nights and its my third visit over the years. To be honest the hotel hasn't changed since my first stay and that's ok .

Glow is a great low key hotel where you can relax and unwind. I loved the view from the beachfront pool that was with my room as you could not always swim in the sea.

If you are looking for untouched place, still not really known by the mass tourism.. well, this is the right place! This resort is located at the very end of the island.
