“Currently under MAJOR construction!!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Upon arrival, I was shocked to hear the construction noises all over the hotel.
At the reception they don't even explain and tried to take me to a room right behind the construction site. Since I specifically requested a "quite room," I had to ask "This isn't my room, is it?" and they say "It is."
I wish I could find a better room on the site to get away from all that, but no way the noises are TOO loud.
The booking confirmation says "guests may experience some noise or light disturbances," however like others said they use power tools and you can even hear in the next hotel!!
Couldn't stand the noise and I had to move out asap.
Too bad this crucial information is not notified to guests clearly.

We booked for three nights however we fled the place after one night. The website said that there were "some" renovations however the workers were busy from 8 till 5 with heavy gear.

My overall opinion of the resort: nice swimmingpool and a nice tropical ambiance. Our room was really damp and so was the bed. Felt like we were sleeping under a blanket that was not really dry. The rooms are decorated beautifully, and you shower (sort of) outside which gives you a reallly nice holiday feeling. The manager of the hotel was really kind and nice.

Watch out, this resort is under heavy reconstruction during the the rest of June! According to them (fine print of booking.com) it's mild renovations, however they are working with power tools from 08:30-17:00 (give or take), 7 days a week, like a circular saw an at a point even a jackhammer!
I fled the scene first thing in the morning after one night (June 8)
Don't stay there before the month is over!

We stayed here from may 18th till may 27th. We had a great stay. We got a good price on a beachfront bungalow, because there was maintenance going on in the boat restaurant (we knew about this upfront and it wasnt so bad...). The pool is beautiful and the beach has powder white sand. The rooms are spacious and clean with good airco. The beds were too hard for our taste, but that is common in thailand. Breakfast was sufficient, nothing special. Staff was friendly. If you go here, you should eat at the my way bar at the beach, great food and service! We are coming back next year!

This is the best place I've ever stayed. Without fear of contraddiction, everybody could enjoy all of these resort. The huge rooms, the interiors, the breakfast, Swimming pool is there only few meters form the sea. This is a quiet place ideal to recover from crowd city life.

We got a taxi to the resort from the pier, which took about twenty minutes. Where the resort is there are a few shops, a couple of restaurants mainly along the small Salad beach. You arrive to a welcome drink and they check you in and take you to your bungalow. WOW! Is all I can say. They are fantastic, well equipped, spacious, modern, clean…I could go on! The terrace overlooks the beautiful pool. Walk out and you're on the beach. The breakfast is wonderful in the panoramic restaurant. Unfortunately they were renovating this and it's a shame this will be moved to another part of the resort. The staff were fantastic, couldn't do enough for you. So friendly and welcoming. The food overall was good, and it was so nice to be able to look out to sea while dining. This was our favourite place to be on our holiday. We loved it so much and wish we could have stayed there longer. Definitely recommend GO GO GO!!!!!!!

We stayed her for 1 night in September 2013. It was my birthday so between 4 of us we rented the 2 bedroom villa with private pool. Between 4 of us it was £140 for the night and well worth it. When we arrived we received a huge fruit basket. It was excellent having our own pool we sat and had drinks by the pool at night. The hotel is on a lovely beach and because it was up north of Koh Phangan it was really quiet and peaceful. The manager let us keep the villa on a bit longer than normal due to our boat not leaving for Koh Samui until 4 the next day.

Room Tip: get the private villa with pool
