My wife and i have stayed there in august. I highly recommend this hotel to you all who is looking for a quite and peaceful place. We were picked up from chalong pier and it took us 15 minutes to get there. I could see from first minute that we were in good hands because of boat crew help. They carried our bags, lagguages to the boat. We were welcomed with sweet cocktails and necklace flowers. Rooms were clean, housekeeping was friendly when we asked them to bring extra towels.I have heard from other people who is staying there every year the rooms are a lot better than last years and management has been changed.Food was great, so do alacarte. They have daily open buffet and if you wish you can order alacarte as well. They have movie night, happy hour, snorkeling, banana boat, fishing tour etc etc. i dont have nothing to stay but positive things. i def. will go there again and enjoy the island.

Room Tip: Just pay a little bit more and get front beach rooms, believe me you will love it....

We were looking for a place to snorkel, from the beach and this resort was perfect for that. We did our homework and therefore only stayed for one night, as there is not much more than snorkeling and a few other water activities to do on the island.
Although not a fancy upperclass hotel (which they don't promise you it is), it was good for one night. The rooms are very basic, but clean and comfortable and very cheap. I suppose you sort of get what you pay for.
We were greeted by very friendly, helpful staff on the beach who carried our luggage to the hotel where we were welcomed by more friendly staff, ice cold fruit juice and a lei (flower necklace) like those you get in Hawaii. We were promptly checked in and shown to our rooms.
Snorkeling is great, as you can do it right from the beach, unfortunately only at high tide. You can also take a short, comfortable walk to Banana beach on the other side of the island, for some more great snorkeling. During the day the island is visited by hundreds of day trippers, but they seem to stay on the one side of the beach, furthest from the bungalos and didn't disturb us.
The resort is owned/managed by Russian people and a lot of the guests were Russian, but we weren't disturbed by them, as they were tourists just like us. We did not experience it negatively as some of the other reviewers suggest.
One thing that you must know when going there though, is that electricity comes from a generator, which is switched of for large parts of the day, no problem for us though, as we spent most of our time on the beach, swimming, snorkeling or using the nice pool, so didn't need electricity. A huge upgrade effort was also evident as some of the bungalos were vacant due to complete renovation.
If you go to this resort, keep an open mind and remember where you are. If it is facy, upperclass you're looking for, don't go there and be prepared to pay much more. Enjoy the experience for what it is.

Room Tip: Pay a few baht (very little) extra and book a beachfront deluxe bungalo. Definately worth it.

After 2 weeks tracelling threw the North of Thailand and a grat experience, we decided to rest out at the beach in Pkuket. We booked a hotel online, this one, and expected a chill out of 3 days at a nice beach with some good thai food. But we ended up in this "resort" managed bu russians. Old rooms with noisy airconditioning and salty seawater in de bathroom. The baddest thaifood, and expensive! The drinks were also very expensive for thaistandards. A small Singha = 80 bath... In a can, not even bottles. Constantly russian housemusic through the speakers, because it's full of russians... We booked 3 nights but the second night my girlfriend started vomitting and had to camp on the toilet. Because of the poor food for shure, it was never served hot. Breakfast was even worse. It's nice beach with very beautiful corals as the name speaks. But they organise daytrips to the hotel with lots of tourists who come over to race in roaring speedboats near the coastline... Noise while chilling out constantly... I'm used to travel a lot as photographer (2-3 montjs a year)but never had this experience before... So in the end we took the boat back on the second day and found a nice guesthouse with good food near Phukettown.

One of the best resorts i have ever been to, not fancy, not hip, no crowds, but the nicest, place to spend a relaxing time with the best personal service you will ever have, I cannot say enough about this place and it is hard to explain , but every trip i felt as if we were the only ones there, and they would make whatever we wanted happen. Dinner on the beach for just us, fishing trip , special food to order, the best ever.

The owner and wife with children live there and treat you like family, always caring about your needs and helpful, the best place to spend a very relaxing week or 2 i know of.

In my solumn opinion I dont believe there is a need to stay on this island as it offers nothing more than you can see on a day trip! The reason for this is a VERY DISSAPOINTING HOTEL! The beach is lovely and the waters are nice and blue. The resort however let down the whole experience. Listed below are the false promises and let downs of this hotel.

Firstly and foremost it felt like we were invading a Russian invite only hotel. Every guest was Russian, It was managed by Russians and we were even given a Russian menu! Staff with the exception of one or two were generallly rude and we were often stared at without so much as a smile! Off duty staff were often seen spitting around the resort, really disgusting! The room had no safe as advertsed and we were given two singles instead of the double as promised! They informed us of a buffet lunch and dinner! We saw zero buffet dinners! The water in the room was sea water, extremely salty and nearly made me vommit when brushing my teeth! The pool had deck chairs with no back which we had to ask for! These were not sun loungers so dont expect to tan your back! The evening entertainment when they felt like it was a singer who literally couldn't hit a note and didn't know the words to the songs! He certainly sped up our retreat to the room.

The resort will reluctantly let you know they have a free speed boat transfer to and from the island three times a day on your check in and check out date! They will more likey try to sell you a trip to and from the island for 500 baht per person! Dont be fooled they do provide this! Free speedboat times from Chalong Pier - Coral Island are 09:30, 13:30 and 17:00. From Coral island to Chalong Pier 10:00, 14:30 and 17:30. Emailing the resort will confirm this for you but email in advance as they are poor at resonding promptly!

I have been to a lot of hotels in nearly 18 months of travelling the world and this one was very UNWELCOMING! There is nothing more to see than you could see in a day trip and with the benefit of hindsight I would have much rather invested my time in another island suck as Koh Lanta or Koh Racha Yai! I will certainly not be returning! If you do make the decision to go, book one or two nights max as they are quiet enough to extend your trip! Good Luck!
