Only go if you’re there for the health part
If you’re after complete and total healthiness then this place is for you. Everybody there is so focused on their personal journey to being detoxed or whatever they’re going through it can be a bit boring for people who are just there for a holiday.

Nice Place, Need Some Improvement
The hotel is nice with cozy rooms, I loved the yoga classes and food from the restaurant, it's really good. Shuttle service for going to mall/town is great. However the reasons I didn't give it a 5 star includes: confusing communications sometimes from the staff when booking for massage/spa therapy services, a few times they told me the practitioner haven't confirm and change my booking last minute which can be quite annoying, this is after they told me everything has been booked. The different kinds of oil massages are all the same and I didn't quite enjoy them, I thought the best massage is the Thai massage. Staff are usually friendly but did run into a few that's not very polite. I loved the room, however bathroom always had draining problems for shower and toilet. The gym is very basic with old machines. Also, the electricity would sudden stop during the day, they said it's because it's a tropical area therefore it's not stable. But I've stayed at other hotels in Koh Samui and never had that problem. For the price, it's OK, I did enjoy myself, but likely I will try other similar type of wellness resort next time.

It was fine but the staffs were strangely less friendly! I incurred 2 prob. one was finding their location. the location shown in goodle map was 9 min away from the correct location! it took us extra one hour to find the location. then upon arriving they said they dont allow kids below 12. you can just imagine my surprise level with my 7 year old. Doesn't Hotel.com know this? later they allowed upon signing a bond.
