“Remote beauty”
Reviewed 29 April 2005

Like the other reviews state, this hotel is secluded, which is the reason we chose to stay there (as well as the reasonable prices). The staff where friendly and obliging and everywhere was kept tidy at all times.

The resort is situated in a steep valley and has been very well designed (one of the owners is a renowned architect) around this fact.

One word of warning though - the ‘Deluxe Sea view’ rooms have no sea view, we were offered the choice of 6 different rooms, each of which only had a view of a car park surrounded by buildings and trees. The hotel staff seemed very blasé when we mentioned the ‘sea view’ rooms actually had no sea view to which they just laughed and said we could upgrade for an extra charge. After a very frustrating 30 mins of getting nowhere we upgraded to one of the private villas, which actually had a very nice sea view (see our photos and ones from review bellow, we stayed in the villa next door).

Even after our initial disappointment we really enjoyed our stay here, although if we hadn’t hired motorbikes (at a very reasonable price from the resort reception) which enabled us to quickly travel to all the neighbouring beaches and restaurants then we probably would have become a little uncomfortable with the remoteness of this little gem of a resort.

I used the above review, when we decided to book this place. It's very isolated-located on the southern tip of phuket-a hour from the airport-near Phuket town. It's kind of crazy that you have to go through the Le Meredien yacht club service entrance and a very curvy road to get to this hotel. There were only a few other people at this place when we were there. The bunaglows are very nice. Ours had a nice view of the sea. Bathrooms were simple, but had special shampoos and conditioners made for this boutique hotel. The beach was rocky and small, but nice-you share it with some other guest house. There were a bunch of windsurfers staying here-so it must be very good for this. You can use the beach at Nai Harn(next to Le Meredien) The restaurant staff seemed to take a long time to make our food and drinks. My husband asked for a watermelon shake and got a banana instead. They don't speak great english, but they try hard-so you have to excuse some miscommunications.

This hotel is very isolated. More so than i originally thought. This should only be for couples, who want to get away from everything. You can't really walk to anything-the Le Meredien is about 15 min walk, but could be dangerous since it's not lighted at night and has very sharp turns. But the staff will easily book you a cab-there are close restaurants at Cape Panwa and Patong Beach is about 30-45 mins away.
