“'Beyond' Expectations”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of a trip touring Thailand. The resort was ideally located for us; right on the beach but with plenty of shops and restaurants within a 10 minute walk along the main road or beach front. We stayed in a Sea View Room and paid £25 per night room only for a couple. The room was very spacious and comprised of a large comfortable bed (with 2 pillows each), a side table, dresser unit and wardrobe. Also in the room was a large fridge, 1 complimentary bottle of water per day per person, safety deposit box, hair-dryer, TV (with a few English speaking channels), towel rack and air conditioning. The bathroom was large and modern and comprised of a large shower cubical and there were also complimentary toiletries. Externally, we had a large covered veranda area with wooden seats and table.

First the good stuff:
No noise issues due to the location and good distance between neighbouring rooms;
The rooms are set in lovely grounds and the pool / restaurant area is very nice. You also receive towels (replaced daily) for use around the pool in addition to the ones for use in the room. There is also a WC at the pool;
We ate breakfast each morning and ate dinner one evening at the restaurant and found the food to be tasty, with generous portions and well priced.
The staff were very friendly and happy to help.

There wasn't much that wasn't so great except that there was no Wi-Fi in our room and by the pool area during our stay due to a technical issue. However, this appeared to be getting resolved the day we checked out.

Overall, we feel we got value for money given the quality of the room and the resort generally. We would recommend the resort and we would stay again.

Room Tip: The little extra money for a Sea View Room is worth it - it has a great view out over the restaurant...

We stayed at Beyond the blue horizon for a few days in August 13, the place is exceptionnal (sea view, restaurant, pool...). and the people there are also very welcoming ! All over Thailand we have met charming people but I must say in this place particularly.

Stayed here for 3 days.
The owners were away during that time but we could not have asked for better service from their staff. They are a great asset to this lovely resort.
Good location directly onto thebeach.

We were recommended to this hotel by a couple we met on another holiday .They raved about it & so we booked. We certainly were not disappointed. The owners were charming & were keen to help in any way that they could booking trips & ferries for us.. We have never stayed in a place before that had such happy smiling staff. Its a great team & the whole ambience of the place reflects this. Its only small, 10 rooms I think ,but it means that you are treated as individuals rather than just another guest. The rooms them selves are spotlessly clean little cabins with great shower rooms ( ours was round ) perched up on legs with a private balcony/verandah looking down the steep slope to the sea .Great place for a large G&T after a day of exploring. Ours was one of the rear ones, a garden view , but still had a small view of the sea. The food is terrific & very reasonably priced & served down in the open sided dining room next to the infinity pool looking out to sea. What could be better than that ? Breakfast is served in the same place ,what a way to start a day. We will be back. Thank you Jeremy ,Ben & the team for a lovely stay.
Linda & Paul.

Room Tip: Front rooms have panoramic views of the sea.

We loved our time at beyond the blue horizon. The staff are very friendly, and Ben was most helpful in sorting out anything we needed. The hotel is on a rocky part of the beach but you have beach either side so no issue whatsoever. Our rooms were always cleaned when we returned from breakfast and the bathroom is great! Make sure you hire a scooter to see all this side of koh phangan has to offer- and make sure try the hotels red snapper, it's amazing! Thanks again for a great stay.

I have to start by saying that it IS a nice place to stay at, and perhaps the issue was our high expectations because of the amazing reviews we read here. It almost felt like people here were talking about a different resort..

First the positives - it is a new construction and well designed rooms, especially the bathroom felt very high end. The terraces are a nice feature, although only have a partial view of the water. The service was friendly, although it was challenging to communicate with most of the staff except perhaps one or two because of the language barrier. The food was amazing - the complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. Even though there was no breakfast buffet, you could choose anything from the menu and it was delicious. Would also recommend their seafood dishes and fruit shakes for lunch.

Now for the not so positives: you have to know that this hotel doesn't really have a beach, or at least there was a high tide during our stay and we had to walk through the main road to get to other beaches. The beaches near by belong to other hotels and all had signs for "guests only", so we couldn't get any sunbeds. Our only option was to rent a scooter (which I'm glad we did!) and drive to other beaches - Haad Salad, Mae Haad were both very nice. We had to pay 200-300 bhat per sunbed on those beaches, which isn't a lot but it would have been much more convenient if our resort had a beach or at least an arrangement with the near by resorts. After all most people go to Koh Phangan to spend time on the beach and it's a major feature that was missing in our hotel.. The location was a bit in between main areas and while convenient to get to different places up north and south, requires a scooter or taxi to get around. Another negative point is the size of the resort, which is very small and all rooms are located very close to each other. We could hear our neighbors conversation from our bathroom, and one morning woke up at 7am because the neighbor's kids were playing games on the stairs. Not ideal honeymoon situation.. I wish there was a bit more privacy consideration when building this place. Lastly, the hard bed that some people already mentioned here, was painfully uncomfortable. We had to get massages just to help with our back pain by the end of the stay..

Overall we were happy to get a booking here and a nice clean room at the last minute during high season (another resort lost our reservation), but I don't think we will be back from the reasons mentioned above. I just hope the reviews here had a more realistic picture of the place, so we wouldn't have such high expectations and therefore a somewhat disappointing stay.
