We spent 3 nights here in a Beachfront Balcony Suite. The room was very nice, on the second floor with a beautiful view of the rocks on the cove and palm trees. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay - it was buffet rice, curry, eggs, and fruit which were generally cold. You could order one hot...

Not my first time in Samui ; but I've always stayed in Chaweng area since it's so central. Found this family friendly beach a short drive away from chaweng with fantastic massage overlooking the sea. Nice friendly staff and good , cheap massage considering it's a tourist destination. Clean waters to waddle in but lots of small rocks in the...

I am glad you found us! Many of our guests like the fact we are on a quiet and relaxing beach but still close enough to Lamai and Chaweng to enjoy the bars, restaurants and other entertainment there.

Firstly, the beach is great - a beautiful bay with clear water and some snorkelling opportunities. Secondly, the view you get from your beach front room is excellent and the rooms are clean. However - you can hear the traffic going by behind the building. I would spend a bit more cash and book the Crystal Bay Yacht Club as...

Thank you for your review I am glad you loved the beach and enjoyed the views from your room. Economy and Standard rooms do get some traffic noise and are priced to reflect this. Seaview rooms and up have no traffic noise.

Good beach location. Area around beach is nice (massage, foods, water).. Hotel has large room, however are noisy and basic door security (just a bolt to block your room)... Pool is nice and you have a bar with nice cocktails. Is good value for money, but I won't described as luxury experience or the best beach in island

We are in our 3rd week of 3 at this hotel and despite a terrible unseasonal week of solid, often torrential rain, causing island chaos, we have had a great time with our friends Julie and Brendan. We made sure that we didn't sit and sulk in the room, we just bought ponchos and carried on regardless. We are in...

Thank you for your wonderful and detailed review. We are so sad for our guests with the terrible weather we had this high season.

We had deluxe beachfront room which was so close to the beach (via stairs). You could see the ocean from bed! Breakfast was very average, coffee was terrible. Can grab local taxi to chaweng for 100baht pp. Can barter down. Great little beach to snorkel

Thank you for your nice review. Glad you loved the view from your beachfront room. Sorry you did not like the free filter coffee with your breakfast. We do offer excellent espresso, latte and cappuccino for a small amount extra also.

Awful hotel. I actually felt unsafe. Noisy, outside felt unfinished and not worth it. It gets visitors because of the stunning location. The room was basic. Food OK but nothing special. Would not recommend.

Sorry you did not enjoy our resort. I do not know which room type you stayed in but perhaps it was one of our economy rooms.

Stayed here with my partner on our way to koh tao. A tad pricey considering the location being a bit far away from all of the action. The rooms were okay but a bit old. The bathrooms were slightly gross. Hard bed etc. I wasnt that impressed because our room was right beside the highway and loud scooters were the...

I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our economy room. It is fairly basic and does have some traffic noise but we feel its great value and of course it includes breakfast for 2 which I am glad you enjoyed.

We have just come home from a 5 night stay at this little gem of a resort. It is right on Crystal Bay, the best beach in Koh Samui. We stayed in a seaview room and looked directly out over the bay. The resort is an older style one and is probably only about 3 stars but the 5 star...

Thank you for your feedback it is very useful for us to make improvements. We have 9 grades of room in the resort and I recommend Seaview Deluxe and above for those wanting a more luxurious and modern room. We also have many grades of cheaper room so all budgets can enjoy our lovely beach.
