My husband and I had our wedding at Rocky's Resort on 2nd January 2010. It is THE most magical place we have ever stayed. The staff are exceptional. Rio Rose, the wedding co-ordinator, took care of everything. Initially we were very nervous booking the entire wedding over the internet via e-mails. There was no need to be, Rio kept us up-to-date on all of the the arrangements - we knew we were in good hands. When we arrived at the airport, we were picked up by Rocky's porter and transferred in a beautiful air-conditioned mini bus and given cold mint towels to refresh after our flight and cold bottles of water. Once we arrived at Rocky's, we were greeted with more cold towels and fruit cocktails – with the heat this was really appreciated! Rio showed us around the resort and gave us our itinerary for the week. She talked us through our legal documents - she had arranged for us to meet her representative in Bangkok a few weeks prior to the wedding and we then went off travelling while the representative had the documents processed and translated.

We met with the DJ, Registrar, Celebrant and Priest over the next few days. Rio arranged for my dress to be pressed in time for the big day. She really thought of absolutely everything! On the morning of the wedding, we and our close family members headed off to Nathon, the main town, and were married in the gorgeous little Catholic Church. We were then taken back to Rockys in the fancy jeep and had lunch. Then the fun began, the beach blessing was scheduled for 4.30pm and we had 41 guests attending! The hairdresser attended to my hair and my bridesmaid's hair. We were thrilled, she did exactly as we wanted, we just showed her pictures and she worked her magic! The beach ceremony began at 5pm - the tide was high that day after the full moon so it was better to wait for the extra half hour. It was absolutely everything we could have imagined and more. Then we had superb canapes and sparkling wine. The beach was decorated beautifully and the food and the flowers were amazing! The photographer was very good - we were given a photo album and a CD of all 300 of our photos. We chose to eat in the banquet room despite deciding on a beach BBQ whilst still in Ireland. The staff and DJ recommended this and we are so glad we took their advice - the air conditioning was very welcoming given the immense heat! DJ Blair was super and managed to please everyone - all age groups. Poon and Oop were fantastic too and even joined in with the dancing and fireworks.

We would definitely recommend Rocky's Resort if you are getting married – or if you are visiting the area for holidays, it is indeed a very nice resort, the staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and the food is lovely too. The rooms are amazing - just absolutely gorgeous. Quite a few of our guests were travelling around Thailand for a month or so and each and every one of them loved Rocky's and were quick to point out that it was the nicest hotel they had stayed in. It is a short 5 minute taxi ride from the main Lamai beach centre.
We stayed in Thailand for our honeymoon too - I would highly recommend Koh Lanta and Phi Phi Island. Both Islands are a lot quieter than Koh Samui. Stay clear of Patong in Phuket - full of sleazy bars, MacDonalds and Starbucks - awful!
We are returning to Khao Lak for our first anniversary and would love to go to stay in Rocky's - perhaps next Summer.

We stayed at Rockys for the second time in February. This trip was with family as we were there to get married. Rockys was as excellent as we remembered. Everyone is so helpful and friendly and will go out of their way to may your stay as relaxong as possible. We stayed with both our sets of parents and also my sister and her partner and my husbands sister and partner. They had all stayed in other resorts in Thailand before joining us and all agree thta Rockys outshines the rest!
The attention to detail and the genuine staff friendlyness is second to none.
Our wedding was outstanding and all our family and friends had a lovely day, if only it could have lasted longer.
We will definately be back to Rockys in the near future. Maybe for our first wedding anniversary!

A friend and I (both Aussies) stayed in early Jan for 5 nights. Took the special package - Jnr suite plus massage every day and a 4 hour spa (what bliss). Hello to the English honeymooners - we often chatted to you at the beautiful pool. Re food - breakfast wonderful - other meals helpings huge (one would do 2 for lunch). As well as the Resort we dined at the local restaurants - walking distance from the Resort.

Only problem we found was the mosquitoes in our room. We didn't realise we could have asked for nets. However, Resort does their best to get rid of them in and out of rooms by fogging. Hope to certainly stay there again.

I cannot understand the previous review regarding the standard and cost of food at Rocky,s. We have travelled all over the world,and we feel that the food was of a very high standard,presentation wonderful,the cost more than reasonable.
All the staff were wonderful, including the gardeners who were always cheerful,
If you want a quiet holiday in a peaceful resort to relax in then this is perfect.

Recently stayed at Rocky's and would definitely come back. We stayed in a Jr. Suite that had an amazing view. The staff were the star of the show. They were helpful, courteous, and went way beyond the call of duty to ensure our experience was a pleasurable one.

The only complaints I had were the food and the fact the another patron's book got better real estate by the pool for three hours than I did. They allow people the "save" the lounging chairs for hours which means you have to be an early bird to catch the good sun. The restaurant sounded great on the menu, but may have been some of the worst food I encountered in Thailand, especially for the price. After the first second night we decided to go to a local night market and got much better food at a fraction of the price.

Overall a great place to relax and enjoy this beautiful life.

Dear iheartthailand,

So sorry to hear about your experience with the sunbeds! I wish we had known that during your stay. Our policy is not to allow sunbed reservations, however, we do occaisionally get guests who are used to staying in resorts that do. We are currently updating our guest services booklet to include a note about our policy regarding sunbeds, so hopefully that will help the problem.

In any event, thank you for your feedback. We find it very valuable and will continue to work on improving Rocky's.

All the best,
The Rocky's Team.
