Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful resort at the Eastern beach of the quiet Island Koh Yao Yai. Very romantic resort with nice restaurants, pool and pool bar, café bar and also good wines. Many more facilities as fitness, trip arrangements, etc. We advice to book a boat trip. Super complete and fresh breakfast. The service is of high quality and always supernice. The bungalow is beautiful in the middle of trees and outside shower with a nice outside terrace/veranda area, good big bed with klamboo. No negative things to state here, will recommend to everybody.

This property offers a tranquil environment in a beautiful location, ideal for nature lovers and anyone looking to relax. The staff is exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We lucked into an upgraded room that was spacious and fabulous. Everything worked well, notably the showers (our villa had 1 indoor and 1 outdoor) had strong pressure and plenty of hot water. There is an excellent breakfast buffet as well as delicious cuisine for lunch and dinner. This hotel, unlike many, is not stagnant. It has been recently improved and they will continue to make upgrades over the next few years as we learned from the management. We will be back to enjoy this lovely venue again.

Really incredible area, though the service is the worst I‘ve ever seen in Thailand. Need something to drink? Bad luck. I‘ve been waiting more than 45 min to get a bottle of water. Afterwards I found out that the bartender is out of office. Never seen a service as bad as that in Thailand. The prices they charge are far above average.

We had a wonderful time at the resort. We very much enjoyed the hotel’s tours including snorkeling and island exploring. Our snorkeling tour guide Mr James(Jim) showed us the best places to see a diversity of sea life and coral reefs. He ensured the trip was a pleasant adventure. Our guide for island exploring was Mhee. Another great guide who showed us many beautiful sights. The hotel staff and tour guides were all very friendly, making our trip a very memorable experience.

We were here for 6 nights celebrating my birthday. We stayed in one of the garden villas and it was amazing. The staff and food is great. We had a private beach dinner for my birthday and everything was perfect. Such a relaxing holiday. We also took a private snorkeling trip and had our own tailboat and a guide. His name is James and he did such a great job showing us great locations, we saw 5 blacktip reef sharks and so many cool fishes and then had lunch on that beautiful island khai nai island. Would recommend doing this again! James was lovely, kind and very helpful. Thanks again James! We are coming back 🥰🫰🏻

We spent 5 days here and could have stayed a lot longer! The resort is absolutely stunning, the service is amazing and if you are looking for relaxation and some peace and quiet, then I would absolutely recommend. We really enjoyed the variety and quality of the breakfasts each day and a big shout out to the very lovely and helpful Bee in particular. There are several local places to eat as well as small shops and massage places just a 15 minute walk from the main resort area so if you do want to get out and about it's easy to do so. Loved the use of the free kayaks and paddleboards available on the beach. The pool areas are some of the best we've ever had. Only one small improvement or suggestion would be that there wasn't much storage for clothes in the villas - a few extra drawers or more hanging space would be ideal. Thank you for a truly wonderful holiday

We were very active on the activities provided through the activity center. Each time we were booked with James as our tour guide. He was super professional and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. Beyond the logistics of the tour, he was sociable, friendly, and willing to teach us much about Thai language and culture. We went to places that were less busy so it turned out to pretty much be a private tour. This was especially amazing with the snorkeling trip. James also had many tips and insider knowledge to share about other things to do and places to go on the island. In terms of the resort itself, the lodging and setting are all phenomenal. We were surprised how many families travel with kids and infants. If you're not one to be around kids on your vacation, go early to breakfast and late to dinner to avoid the time all the kids are running around or crying. About 50% of the menu was great, other half was so so. All in all we weren't there for food and fancy drinks to be the focus, so it was sufficient and the place and activities more than made up for it. The breakfast bar is definitely the highlight for food. There's also a nice fitness center to squeeze in a workout. All staff are warm and welcoming!

Quite and calm area. The villas are surrounded by the trees and its animal habitants. Wake up call by the cicadas and the walk to the restaurant escorted by water monitors. Also the two pools are great for relaxing. The low tides make it hard to enjoy the sea! But nice experience!

The views and location are nice but the rooms are very dated and smell bad of mold. There is no view from the rooms unless you are staying in a beach front villa but on the hill the trees block the view. the beach is poor and when there is a big tide running the water really gets low around the resort. Food was average, the breakfast buffet was a 3 out of 5. They need much better selection and more quality fruits. 3 machines in the gym were not functioning which was disappointing. There was no kids club. The views from the restaurant are very nice. The staff were friendly but needed more training. the resort needs a better GM that can improve the entire resort overall and stay on top of the food and room quality.
