“Very good for couples not for friends”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

The hotel is quite far from the bars and restaurants in the centre. It would take you 30 minutes by walk so better to rent a scooter which would take approximately 5 minutes. Free shuttle service is useless because it only operates three times in the afternoon and once to get you back at night. Very quiet place to hang around, beach is nice but not swimmable. I liked that the kayaks were free. I would recommend paddling to the island opposite the resort which is very near and also swimmable. Breakfast was great, pool was not bad. A resort of its calibre should have free wifi but it didnt and internet was expensive just like the laundry service. Sink was a nuisance because it kept on blocking and clean towels were a rare sight when you return in your villa. Other than that I enjoyed the shower and cosy bed

Brilliant location. about a 15 minute drive from the airport and situated at the start of Chaweng beach. Slightly far away from the restaurants and the main shopping area but we rented a scooter for 150 bhatt from a shop right next to the hotel so we didnt mind the 10 min travel (the hotel will charge you 300 bhatt for the scooter so beware). Front desk was very helpful and made our stay very comfortable.
Breakfast spread is average but one gets a good view of the beach. Rooms are very spacious and very comfortable. We loved the small little pool and the view from it. Would definitely stay there again. They also have free kayaking which we didnt get time to utilize.
Only let down was that there was no free wifi.

The resort is made up of little white villas all with outdoor showers and modern amenities. We got a really good rate so was more then pleased, the resort was clean, modern and relaxing. It was very quiet and there were plenty of sunbeds around the pool and beach, we found it very relaxing! I would definately reccomend this resort, the only tiny gripes would be there was no free wifi and it was about a 15 walk into the centre of town.

Excellent rooms & facilities. Not a very big beach and no room will overlook the beach. Very helpful receptionist & staff. Breakfast is not a huge buffet but quite good none-the-less. Quite a distance from the main Chaeweng beach but we found a scooter just outside the hote (150 TB a day and he kept one passport) Secluded & quiet spot. Lovely little pool & view during breakfast is brilliant.
Stayed a couple. Would probably look for more 'fun' location for hotel next time.

Room Tip: Ask for something close to pool & restaurant (which also overlooks the beach)

Quiet resort located only a few minutes (about 200 Baht taxi ride) from the main area of Samui.

Clean bungalows, great outdoor shower, newish, great facilities.

Excellent food, spaghetti was so tasty! Cocktails are good. The pool is awesome with a swim up bar.

Free kayaks are a good touch.

Breakfast buffet was a great way to start the day.

Friendly staff.

Samui is great for shopping, plenty of cheap cheap goodies on offer, great restaurants, some massive resorts nearer to the hustle and bustle but we liked Al's as it was quiet.

Too bad wifi isn't free!!
