A friend and I have just come back from a 7 night visit here. When we arrived to the hotel check in took about 30 mins or so , we were given a drink but just wish it check in took half the time.
Arrived to the rooms , and it was nice but as it seemed like no one had stayed in their recently it was not 100 % clean. We wanted a little bit of luxury and booked the jacuzzi room, which was the best part about the stay.
We were not overly impressed with the services , everything took so long and it didnt seem like the staff were very happy doing their job. I thought Thailand was the land of smiles , but it didnt seem so and there is no little touches to make it special.
As its a bit hilly to get around the hotel , there is a tuk tuk service which takes you from door to door. Which is great but not when you have to wait 30 mins for one, whilst getting bit by mosquito .
If you are really looking to get away from the world , and have all the time to wait then this is the perfect hotel. As the hotel is in the middle of no where, they do offer a free shuttle to karon and Patong , which is very good and needs to be booked a day before.
Whilst we were at the hotel , there seemed to be complaints every day. We were even asked for our feedback and informed the management how we felt. However it doesnt seem like any action was taken.
Again , if you are really looking to get away from everything , then this is a good retreat.
Just wish the staff were more on the ball and would be better if there was decent service. Also again , for somewhere like Thailand you do expect one of two little touches to make it an amazing stay.

Each romantic, private villa, nestled within its own screen of green, directly faces the sea from a dramatic inclined perch, ensuring that views are endless and the quiet all-pervading. The minimum villa size is a generous 46 square metres and some come with the option of a plunge pool or a Jacuzzi.

The resort also offers hands-on Thai cooking classes, and two restaurants and a bar that boast sublime ocean views. For those who wish to venture out of its oasis of serenity and tranquillity, the tour information desk will be delighted to arrange activities such as island-hopping, bungee jumping, and family treks.
