I recently (1 week ago), spend 5 days at this 'paradise on earth' hotel. You cannot ask for a better view than this. The palm trees reach further up than you can see, without starring into the sun. The surroundings are just out of breath, and if you want picture gold to make all of your friends drop their jaws, then this is the place to go.
The beach is less than a mile from every room at the hotel, and when you reach the hour of the day, when the sun sets, then you want to stay even closer to the beach, because that sight is what you came for - trust me, it's gorgeous.
Despite all the glamour, this is the most expensive hotel on Koh Chang, which is understandable. However, on the service part there are a few disappointments. Whenever you stay at a hotel, you want to try their food at one point, but not here. The breakfast - which is included - is of course amazing, apart from the waiting, if you arrive together with everyone else, then there's a long waiting-line until you get a table, so be there early or late. When it comes to lunch and dinner - which is overpriced - then you are really left with a bad aftertaste.. The food is worse than any mediocre restaurant you can find along the beach, and the time it takes, wow. The entertainment when I was there, was a band consisting of 2 girls that rarely hit the nodes, and a guy on a guitar who never hit them. A long lasting torture was our experience when eating dinner at the hotel.
Overall a really nice hotel on the outside, but be careful to not dig deeper than that.
