Clean and comfy room but unpleasant experience
We stayed 3nights at the resort and during check in, we inform the staff who showed us our room that we were there to celebrate my hubby’s birthday. He informed us that he could assist us to book a table to have dinner at the pier and view the sunset. However to our disappointment, we found out that he didn’t book it for us. During our 3rd day, we wanted to have in room dining however our aircon broke down and we inform the team at 3.30pm. They notify us that it will be fixed in 2hrs time but by 6.30pm it was still not fixed. Feeling hot and frustrated, we called up the villa manager, Jimmy requesting for a new room. However he told us to continue to wait for it to get fixed and would only give us a new room if it can’t be fixed. Feeling hungry and frustrated, we decided to head to the Thai cuisine restaurant. To our disappointment again, we were not allowed to enter due to our dress code is not smart. We were there to enjoy the sun, sand, sea, who would bring smart outfit! We had no choice but head to dine by the beach. The aircon only get fixed at 9.30pm that night! However I would want to give credit to Grace the assistant restaurant manager who has brighten our stay. Love her hospitality and going the extra mile for our request. Unfortunately, we would not be going back to the resort with all the unpleasant experience in the villa, the check in staff and the “do not enter” dining experience.

Breathtaking view, disappointing service
The view from my deluxe sea view room was amazing - that was hands-down the highlight of my trip. The frontline staff were very polite and smiley but fell short solving problems or providing customer service - e.g. the reason I booked the resort was the soaking tub (something I haven't had in years) on the balcony. The water was green (rust could be seen inside faucets) and then it started making weird noises combined with electrical blasts of light. The 'engineer' told me not to use the hot water and it would be fixed upon my check-out. After complaining to reception and when settling my bill checking out - nothing was done. Another issue with the service was after booking on and realising I needed an island transfer an hour earlier than the hotel provided. The email response from the reservations manager was a suggestion to change my flight or book a private speedboat at 6,000 baht. At this point, I would have cancelled my reservation but the room was non-refundable. Expressing my desire to stay at the hotel but the prohibitive cost of the private boat, I asked if there were any other transfer options on the island that were safe and reliable - the manager did not even bother to respond. I found Koh Yao Travel online in the end and paid 1100 baht door to door. This was all a bit disappointing and left a bad taste in my mouth; I'll go elsewhere next time and recommend the same to friends/family.

Beautiful location let down my management
“Bay view” rooms actually face onto a port and when the tide goes out it’s more like marsh land. Beautiful location otherwise, but the staff/service let it down - Emailed beforehand, and called 4 times from the room to get a transfer to a dive centre. Have to give the same order repeatedly as it always got forgotten. Won’t let you check in a moment before 2. Take your bags from you on arrival, with no information on where it is/if you can get anything from it. Only details given when checking in are massage offers and deals - nothing on the hotel itself or facilities. A real shame as it has huge potential.

Close to perfect
I have been to a lot of nice places around the world, but this place has to be one of the most unique places I´ve stayed at. From the rooms and the view to the service and the facilities. The whole experience! They say it´s no such thing as perfect, but this has to be the closest. Thanks to the whole staff for making this stay wonderful. We will definitely come back!
Fredrik, sg3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Really nice resort, but the fact that many of the villas are depending on the pickup truck transportation makes it less attractive. .. unless you can get of the lower placed villas within walking distance to the beach. Service is top of the line and food is well prepared and served. wineceller is decent and fairly priced.

Nice Stay, food was ok.
The place was really nice, but since they recently opened, they seemed to be a little out of practice with cooking. The stay overall was great, but the food wasn't great (don't do the buffet for at least a few weeks).
