Glow is a great low key hotel where you can relax and unwind. I loved the view from the beachfront pool that was with my room as you could not always swim in the sea. Also loved the space and outdoor bathroom in the bungalow. Food was good though restaurant prices and restaurant staff were excellent. Glow was not a... More

If you are looking for untouched place, still not really known by the mass tourism.. well, this is the right place! This resort is located at the very end of the island. Far from the main piers and in the middle of nowhere. You will not gonna have a lot of choices about where to eat and where to go... More

The price of food and drinks within the resort are higher than on Phuket but this after all a small island. Very good restaurant 5 minutes walking distance... More

Just returned to Phuket from the beautiful GLOW Elixir.... What to say - its very very private, so it was totally worth the 30 minutes travel from Phuket. Hotel speedboat picked us up from Royal Phuket Marina, and we had a lovely trip to the island. We landed right in front of the resort where we got a very warm... More

Just back from 6 days here with friends. Lovely welcome, quick check in after taking 7 hours to get here from Bangkok. Villa beautiful, outdoor shower the best. Lovely comfy beds, pillows, plenty of towels and complimentary water. Small resort which meant short walk to the pool and beach area. Always space around the pool, shame pool bar not open/used....

We stayed 5 nights after the end of the raining season, coming from a trip including Bangkok, Chiang Mai & the Golden Triangel. We really enjoyed the view (green gras & blue ocean) and the tranquility of our beach view pool villa (room 115). We never left the facility, although we had planned to eat at least once outside, but... More
