This place was a waste of time & money on my honeymoon, first, the road was torn down so we had to ride a roller coaster called a pickup car which gave me the worse motion sickness ever, & due to this construction problem we were stuck in the hotel for the whole time we were there.. Second, the hotel is constructed on a mountain with a very steep stairway & the extreme humidly & the nearly zero oxygen level made it very hard to get out side the A/C in the bedroom.. Third, the beach is very not clear or clean, & diving is very worthless if u ever went to a real diving or snorkeling spot, so don't recommend planning any beach activities while ur staying there.. Four, you need to change money before you go there bec they will definitely try to rip you off, they gave us $3 less rate than everywhere else in Thailand & they said "this is the hotel policy, because we are located in the middle of no where, sorry".. BTW: no hospital on this island.
The spa isn't recommended at all, didn't like the service & the atmosphere, and there was lizards all over the spa..
On the other side, the hospitality from everyone at the hotel was great, Mr. William is so much fun to be around, he always made us smile.. And the most amazing thing about this place was dinner, the mixed appetizer, the duck spring rolls, chicken satay, & all the main courses we ordered were perfectly cooked. If your not age 50 & up & u'll stay inside ur bedroom don't go :)
