The resort was lovely; view and the stunning wooden rooms. I would reserve my comments regarding the staircase heading to the rooms. For me, it was fine but if you're against getting a little workout just to get to your room, then maybe it's not for you. If you continue further down the stone steps, you;ll even find a quaint...

Firstly this hotel is a 15min walk uphill and very dark. You will most likely need a moped or taxi to get up. They have a hotel/resort to hire mopeds next door who are very helpful and fair. Thipwimarn offers a shuttle bus to pick you up which you can arrange with them beforehand. I found the service very good....

This hotel is located on a mountainside jungle which as you can imagine provides beautiful scenery and views. I feel that this hotel took a lot of planning and hard effort to build and are not worthy of some of the 1/2 star reviews. The rooms where very nice. A 4 star hotel is different in Thailand compared to New...

This hotel was booked as a treat to ourselves but has been nothing short of disappointing. The room with the ocean view suite, has cracked, broken and lifted nails on the floor board throughout. There wasnt sufficient hot water to fill the jacuzzi which was the point of this room type. The shower in the main room had no pressue...

First of all: sorry for those with high expectations. You're on an island, you book a stay in a jungle-surrounded hotel and you're in Thailand. So take it easy. Yes not everything was modern, shiny or perfect but in conclusion it was a really amazing stay at this hotel. Room: we had the Boutique and it was really nice and...

This is not a cheap hotel by Thailand standards. I was utterly disappointed with the service. Firstly they advertised online that there is wifi throughout the resort. That is not true and should be changed. This was a major reason for me booking. Secondly I booked because reviews and online it said buffet breakfast. I stayed three nights and was...

Booked to stay here with a friend in April for 4 nights- place was so awful we left after the first. It's far from everything up a steep hill. We spotted one other couple throughout our time there. Our little hut had cockroaches and the safety deposit box wasn't even secured to the floor. The restaurant messed up our food...
