“Stay here. Period,”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

Great resort with one of the most amazing locations on earth. Quiet, secluded, gorgeous and the diving, snorkeling and beach are the best if the world. There are small negatives, the food isn't perfect, the resort had construction going on when we were there, it's a bit remote. But the positives are really special. Daily transfers into town, great and private lodges, great service, good breakfast, amazing snorkeling.

We went to the fit and left of higher resort snorkeling and it simply breathtaking. You need to go about 1 kilometer to see then Best, so rent a canoe if you aren't a fast swimmer. It's not the ritz, expect it to be a bit rustic and enjoying it.

Amazing hotel in south koh tao. you can see shark island just in front. We stayed in a castaway beach villa along the beach. Choose a villa in the west side of the beach (there is construction work at the moment in the east side of the hotel)

the bedrood was just gorgeous. spacious room made in amazing wood. perfect bed. Perfect terrasse just on the beach.

I recommend to rent an ATV during the stay.

The breakfast was ok but not amazing.

The beach bar is great. Really good cocktail and really nice staff at the beach bar.

simply put, this place is amazing, we normally stay at much cheaper places but this holiday was shorter so we could afford to stay here with the agoda discount. Wished we had booked another couple of days here, will know for next time. Our 8 nights were fantastic, pure luxury and comfort. After a cold drink we were taken to our getaway villa, spotlessly clean, looked fantastic, aircon on ready for us, so nice welcome. The day bed is pretty cool with the ocean views with some shade, great place to sunbathe. Went snorkelling nearly every day, for November we had a bit of rain the last 3 days, when the weather is fine, this place is heaven, when it rains, still very beautiful. Anyway, great snorkelling, venture out and you will see sharks, if your lucky as we were you will see turtles, the first one we saw was huge, when my girlfriend pointed to me I thought she was pointing to me a sunken boat, it was that big, best time before 1pm to see turtles, they feed on the sea weed\plants, so look for where it grows in larger patches. What an amazing swimming pool! Breakfast has a very wide selection, thai, eggs\omlette, bacon, fresh sliced bread, other breads, fruit, juices, milk, cappacino\coffee, ham chesse, I could be here all night. My girlfriend who speaks thai and burma told me she asked them to have bacon refilled for when we turned up, and sure enough then every morning it was already there, no need to ask for more to be cooked, I like bacon and eggs, toast, not much else. The restuarant, I had read people saying it was expensive, it is not the case, no more than other decent place, o.k, the aussie steak was 750 baht so I ate thai, which was very nice, main meals are generally 150-300 baht, fish bbq just under 400 baht, not high priced at all, enjoyed every meal and the restuarant is a nice place to dine. Nice staff. what didnt we\she like? My girlfriend did not have a big mirror to look at herself in. The beach bar could be open later, had to pay for renting the kayak. wifi slow. Service was great, everytime you asked for something, the member of staff stopped what they were doing and dealt with your request. Coming back to haad tien as soon as possible, well worth the money.

the resort is very nice with a pool,Jacuzzi, beach bar, spa and massage and good place to snorkel. I went there on last weekend and the price of accommodation is on a promotion and is a good deal. I got a mini house up in the hill. the room is really nice. classic and modern decoration. everything is good so far. but one thing to complain is too many mosquito around the area they are everywhere!! it's really annoying even in the morning you can get bite ":( that's why they have a mosquito net hanging on the bed lol.

We stayed there for 2 nights and had a "hide away villa".
This resort is located on "sharks' bay", just 10 minutes from the pier.
Unlike many other hotels in Thailand, it provides a genuine impression of space with fantastic views and feels like the motivation of preserving the nature was greater than the number of villas... Hopefully this will remain as it is!
We spent much of our time between the swimming pool and the lagoon as it is a great snorkelling spot (and yes we saw sharks...).
Our villa was good except the bed which literally broke our backs :-((.
Breakfast buffet ok, good dinner experience with "BBQ your pick".
Overall a great experience, invest in thicker mattresses and we'll come back!

We stayed here for 5 days, our room was huge and well decorated. We arrived at 2pm and our room was ready. We liked having a quite room as hubby had to do some work a few mornings before we went to sightseeing. We had fabulous bathroom and it's great for getting shower after from sightseeing. The pool was clean and the food/drink service was excellent. The only negative (for us) was there were a lot of guest(not the hotel fault) We thought maybe because now is high season... next time we will wait for the low season. Would highly recommend this place and will be back.

Choose castaway beach villa. Best from 211 and above. You can then enjoy the perfect sea view right on your sofa both inside and outside the room!

The restaurant has wonderful sea views and the price are affordable! Paying cash has 5% discount. I like the flavors very much! In dry seasons the outdoor seats are open and it must be a wonderful experience to have meals so close to the sea.

John the manager and most hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. He invited my family to see coconut cutting in the garden! But the service of reception really needs to improve.

I will be back soon for sure!

Room Tip: Choose castaway beach villa from 211 and above.
