6/10 Good

The resort is very pretty, very clean, very comfortable. But it is in the middle of nowhere. If you have a car, this will not be an issue. We were only there three nights, and had never needed a car anywhere else in Thailand. You can’t get anywhere without one. They’ll call you a cab, and it will cost 2-4x what Grab costs you to get back to the hotel. They have a shuttle to take you to Ap Nang and Ao Nang ONLY, and it has very limited predetermined departure and return times. The hotel food is, unfortunately, not great aside from breakfast. There’s a place called God-Le restaurant just down the street that is idyllic and delicious. The beach at the resort is mucky and unusable at low tide. If they provided a better shuttle service, this would be a much better hotel. If it was closer to…anything…it would be a better hotel. If you’re just looking to sit by the pool and not see Thailand, or if you have a rental, it’s great.

6/10 Good

The hotel itself is beautiful but it’s really far from everything and the restaurant in the hotel is very expensive and is only ok. The shuttle only goes in and out three times a day. The staff are very nice. If the restaurant was really good, or about a third of the price, and I wanted a very quiet holiday I would stay there again.

During our stay, the staffs were absolute stars! They are extremely kind and friendly, and they do everything they can to help you :) The hotel, room and the pool were all really lovely like paradise, very clean and modern as well :) The location is a bit remote from everything so if you're someone who wants to go out all the time, you might need some extra money for taxi trips. But if you want to chill and relax, this is an absolute gem! Would defo stay there again and highly recommend to anyone :)

A really nice resort. The staff were friendly and happy to assist with all tours and excursions. We liked the private beach and the adults only pool is a good option. The free shuttles to Au Nang and Krabi were a pleasant surprise and are frequent enough for flexibility. There is also a free shuttle to the grocery store just 3 minutes drive. Highly recommended.

Almost everything was perfect. But restaurant food was not worth for price. However, breakfast buffet was good enough.
