Average resort with less facilities. the main attraction of this resort is beach party at night. Swimming pools are nice. Breakfast is not good. They gave only five choice out of 10-15 items. 6Th item is chargeable, average breakfast with less choices. Rooms are so - so. Overall a mix experience

The Resort is on the beach at Chaweng and caters mainly for younger people. In the evening it absolutely rocks, with a spectacular Fireshow in the evenings and a great beach scene. Staff are friendly and helpful and a great time is to be gad by all. Not for the faint hearted!

Booked a deluxe room here last minute, we arrived late and we're leaving at 6am so luckily we didn't have to spend much time there.

Visited this place in March. My friends stayed here but I did not. Unfortunately I could not get a room. The place itself is a party hotel beach resort and in terms of that, it certainly delivers.

The hotel was big and with nice DJ.I went there for drink and relax the foods and drinks are a little bit expensive but that was fine.Better if you go night time because you can join with DJ and firework.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Perfect beach side resort with lots of fun. If you like party, dancing, singing the place is perfect for you. Every Friday and Wednesday they arrange a big fire show with famous DJ. The bf was good with spectacular view from the dining. We enjoyed a lot!
