I have been here for 7 days now and it is absolutely amazon. Situated in a quiet piteresque location. Private beach. Elephants up walk up and down. Not crammed full and plenty of space. No fighting for a lounger by one of the three infinity pools. Located about 50 minutes 700 baht return to patong (patong is not so puteresque). Patong reminds me of malia but a place you need to say you have been to. The service is fantastic and the staff are so happy and friend. Beauties restruant up the road called Thai naan, when you arive you will think what a dive but wait till you try the food and so cheap. Taxi 600 baht. The hotel is no more expensive than any other hotel for on sight dining but definitely will be returning and 100% recomend. You really cannot fault a thing.

Truly beautiful grounds. Good customer service, not "great" as sometimes you can tell it is fake.
The garden terrace room is perfect for a couple, as family of 4 it is possible, but will advice the 1 bedroom suite, where we stayed during our second week.

This resort is about enjoying the large pools, the beach and various activities like the kids club, the tennis or the free bike rentals. It is not about traveling around as it is pretty remote.

Enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Marriott cafe.

Room Tip: The $10 an hour massage on the beach is a must, almost a daily must :) The free bike rental is grea...

We stayed here as a family of 7 in April. While the hotel and it's grounds are beautiful beware that they will nickel and dime you over EVERYTHING! A soda was 90 baht (about $2.75 USD) and kids meals were around $8 each. My son's crocs were stolen from the pool area and we had to go to the gift shop to replace his shoes. Our cheapest (and only) option was a pair of $40 flip flops. One of the managers gave us an employee discount because even she couldn't understand why they had $40 kids flip flops in their gift shop! All in all we enjoyed our stay but wish they would be a little more realistic with their prices.

Of all the places in the world I have stayed this remains my favourite. I stayed in both the Suite and the Rooms - as I recall there is only the choice of the two. The rooms are all identical - and perfect. The bath opens out into the bedroom wth shutters - so romantic and the balcony views are to die for. The Suite is majestic - literally your own home on one level. The infinity pond at the enttrance takes your breath away, the massages on the beach leave you never wanting to leave, the fountains (dolphins?) around the pool are a delight, the choice of restaurants is wonderful (although dining around the infinity pond with water lillies by candlelight could not have been more perfect.) Regular shuttles run you into the drama of Phuket. The beach is protected and beautiful - but the rest is such heaven you find yourself drawn to the pool. The hotel works well with a stay in Bangkok first (again we stayed at a Marriott Resort and Spa - but it's not in this league) to get the tuk-tuks and general madness out of your system - and it's also worh hiring a personal guide to take you to Burma and all the magical places that Thailand and its neighbours are filled with. Oh and boat trips to phi Phi and Koh Samui OMG! This hotel is so special. If I hadn't stayed I would have dreamed it. And so is Thailand. Just remember that gentleness and calmness are the currency and let it fill you up. Just beautiful.

Room Tip: The suite is to die for ..... but all the rooms are gorgeous.
