I was taken to the island by a speed boat from Rayong and arrived at the island's port. Then, I was quickly taken to the resort through a private vehicle. I got a beach villa where the sea was literally a few meters away. The villa was large enough for a couple, but I hoped that the bathroom sink would be cleaner. Just before sunrise on the next day, I was awaken by a loud sound coming from the ceiling. At first, I thought the sound was caused by cats running on a wooden ceiling, but it sound more like rats. The breakfast was ok. It could improve. I also tried the nearby hotel's buffet breakfast (Le Vimarn), and it made no difference at all. I think the best part of the breakfast was having it on the beach where you could listen to the sound of the waves crashing. At night, I enjoyed the dinner while watching a spectacular fire dance. For the price paid, I wish they could make some amenities free (or discounted) for the guests. I actually had to pay for the surf board. The check out was slow.

This Hotel is rapidly becoming my Favourite. This is the second time we have stayed here in the last month, and the reasons are obvious if you stay here. The Hotel is very clean, and that includes Rooms, gardens and beach. The staff are very friendly and attentive. What I liked most was the cleanliness of the beach and water, the staff do a twice daily cleanup, and guests can assist too if they like. The food variety is excellent and quality and size of dishes are good, albeit a little bit pricy, but worth it. The stairs to some of the rooms can be a bit tiring, depends on age, but we stayed in 411 and 415 and access to facilities is OK. The price of the stay includes the speedboat from the mainland, and minibus from Samet pier to the hotel and back again on departure. This saves a lot of time and money, so worth taking this. We enjoyed it here so much I have booked again for my Birthday in February 21, and looking forward to that. Keep up the good work, nice to see a hotel being so good after the long lockdown.
