Managed to swap 2 weeks of timeshare to here. This means only some rooms available to you, upgrade at a considerable cost.
Firstly the resort is on a steep hillside so definitely not for those with ambulatory problems.... not to mention those who may not be as fit as they would like! That said the rooms are set in pretty grounds. If you ask for an upstairs one you can even have a sea view (not from all though) The hotel car will drive you to your room but the estate is really not set up for cars at all, so very narrow road. Walking is easier.
The rooms themselves are very clean, ample space but a bit dark in decor with all the dark wood. They have a balcony. The bed was quite hard, so they kindly put on a soft topper.
The restaurant is good also but we eventually gave up on the buffet breakfast and prepared our own in the small kitchen area inclusive of a fridge, and microwave and hob. The dinner and lunch menu was comprehensive, not too expensive and well presented, so, useful, if you did not wish to walk downhill into the town or onto the beach. The town was well served with good restaurants many beachfronted. The tables were placed to allow the sea to lap very close. Under the stars it is idyllic.
We rented a car from the hotel car rental place. Easy to do and it was excellent value especially since we had it for 2 weeks,($12daily) and went out daily to golf, amongst other things. You need to park it at the hotel reception and walk back up to your room.
The pool is pretty, a bit small, but overlooks the ocean. The Spa was good also but a massage there was about 1200 baht whereas in the town (10min downhill walk) they are only 500baht and plenty of choice too.
The staff were all delightful, as always in Thailand.
In general it was a good place to stay, as a base for our time on Koh Samui. Not at all luxurious but comfortable, clean, well serviced and delightful friendly staff. Maybe looking a little jaded and would benefit from an upgrade. As we swapped our timeshare I am probably more generous with my review. 3 and a half stars would be more accurate!
