The setting of this hotel is wonderful without a doubt. What the developer chose to do with the setting, that's a different thing. The sea view junior suite, probably initially intended to imitate the Thai traditional design, uses some of the cheapest materials and furnishing I have ever seen in a 3 star hotel let along a 5 star wanna' be one. All the walls are covered in painted fiberboard (???), the floor is covered in cheap tiles and the bathroom is just ugly. The overall surface of this type of room does not exceed 40 sqm, very small if you think of the average junior suite size in Thailand. On the other hand, the staff is very very helpful, and most of them speak English very well (surprisingly). One particular guy (Jonathan) was very nice and provided full assistance and help throughout our short stay at this hotel. Conclusion, definitely not worth the money they are asking for a room (junior suite especially) and definitely not a 5 star hotel. I would give the hotel 3 stars at the most. One last funny thing is that we wanted to upgrade to a villa at their sister hotel (The Shore) and we have inquired on the rates for this villa/night. I do not want to write the price but let me just mention that I have checked the Four Seasons in Koh Samui for the same period and the Beach Front Villa was cheaper!!! and I'm not trying to promote the Four Seasons by any means!
