I'm always staggered by the reviews this place gets; a backpackers place IT IS NOT! I have never stayed here but every time I come to Phuket, it is the first place that I head for for a relaxing lunch or dinner.
The location is stunning. The pool and surroundings are beautifully kept. Clued up travellers to Phuket will realise that the glorious sandy beaches (and the horrid bars, tuk tuk drivers etc) are on the west and the fabulous views and the odd little beach are on the east. Whilst were there last week for lunch there was a wedding taking place on the beach and the wedding party were then on horseback - it was beautiful.
We visited for dinner on the 20th and 27th March and enjoyed a lovely meal of a huge prawn 'goong sarong' starter and seared tuna special, with wine and water and it cost 1500 bahts for two of us. Great laid back entertainment - singer with guitar and then a duo who were great. It is a classy retreat from the sometimes madness of Phuket!
I love it>
