We stayed 5 nights in Feb 2012. Stunning location. You don't have settings like this in many places in the world. It was absolutely breathtaking. I thought it was just as nice if not better as our excursion to the Phi Phi islands. The "Beach" was loaded with 5,000 Japanese people!!
Only Europeans were there at that time, but all the UK people we met were great! Virtually no American or Thais.
We signed up for the club when we got there, which turned out to be a great deal and good way to meet people and socialize.
I thought that the food was great. The liquid nitrogen coconut ice cream was to die for. Considering the only land access is the "monkey trail", the quality was hard to believe.
Yes, it is expensive there, but if you are concerned about the money you should not be staying there.
Yes, the service can be a little slow at times. Reminds me of Jamaica- No pressure - No problem. You are in paradise. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the surroundings. If you want your water glass filled every 30 seconds, go to New York or Chicago.
Yes, you have to schedule boat trips back to the mainland. But why would one want go to see cheap T-shirt shops when you can enjoy nature at finest.
It is not a place for people with disabilities. It is also not for people demanding of Bangkok 5 star hotel service, rooms, or food such as you get at the Mandarin Oriental.
It is for someone who wants to relax in tropical oasis and forget about the rest of the world.
