We stayed at this resort for 4 nights in January. We (two adults and two children) stayed in a one bedroom room with a double bed mattress for the kids. Each room has a DVD player, ensuite bathroom, airconditioner and a balcony overlooking “Shark Bay”. The room was fantastic and the location was even better.
Shark Bay is on the daytripper’s itinerary list and therefore gets busier between 9am and 4:00pm. The resort provides free snorkeling equipment and beach chairs for resort guests (2 sets per day). The bay is beautiful and is far enough away from the main settlements to keep the number of daytrippers down. Unfortunately during January the winds were from the south making the visibility of the water low.
The onsite restaurant provided very good food at a bit higher cost than average eateries. The free breakfast was of reasonably quality (not the best but adequate). Chakipiri, Rocky and Heaven Resorts are in close proximity to provide alternative dining options. Be aware that there are steep climbs to access Chakipiri and Heaven Resorts.
The resort takes people in to the main settlements three times a day. Costs about 300 baht in a “taxi” to return. 700 baht for a water taxi.
Tip: go to Hing Wong Bay for great snorkeling.
