This well organized and well equipped resort has everything you need for a super relaxing holiday: the perfect beach, great bungalows, good food for a still fair price, romantic views and sunset, good thai massage, very nice staff. Yes, it is already 10 years old and you might see this here and there. But everything is still in a good...

This hotel was our last stop on our Thailand adventure, and WOW! what a great way to end a holiday! It was quite a travel getting there, but once settled in at the hotel it was so worth it! The food served at the hotel is very well priced, and good quality, however not much variety for authentic Thai food....

This was our second time in Thailand. We were back in 2011. I have to say, that everything about this place was great, if you get rooms close to the sea. The other ones, are really small.... even though they make it look big on the internet. We got there with private motor boat, people helped with language. The room...

If you need to get away from everyday noise and stress, this is the place to go. You stay in small cosy huts with out door shower. It is nice and clean and the service is good. The pool area is very quiet too, not many people choose to make use of the pool as the sea is near by...

If you want to totally wind down, this is the place. It is hard to belive that this pretty place, situated on a beautiful little beach, is only a half hour's boat trip away from busy Phuket. This is much more how I remember Thailand being twenty some years ago. We stayed at the two bedroom pool villa. It had...

After a fairly frantic tour round Thailand our last stop was the Glow resort, where we just wanted to relax and chill out. Definitely found the right place, the rooms are lovely, the staff are very friendly and attentive- all of them, sorry can't remember names now, but everyone from the front desk, to the pool bar, to the restaurant...
