Although we had a car, they will pick you up. Food was standard, but the view was great and a great place to chill for the day or afternoon around the pool ( which will cost you 100 baht)...lots of bugs at night. Beware.... its a very steep driveway!!!

Incredible view from the top of the mountain looking onto the sea. We rented one of the new rooms (deluxe i think it was). Room was very nice, but note there is no A/C and room is open air. This was really not a problem temperature wise (though a little warm), but frogs were quite noisy at night and took some getting used to. They served great food and reception was nice. It was nice to lounge by the pool and take in the view. The only way to get to there is by taking the hotel truck which was a bit inconvenient, so plan inadvance.

Room Tip: The big house has the best view (I actually snuck onto the balcony of it to get the best picture).

A local recommended us to visit Jungle club for a nice relaxing afternoon with our 7 months old baby. It was fantastic. Awesome view, nice little hut overlooking the ocean where we had some snacks and cocktail. There is a nice infinity pool also with the same view. Highly recommended to go there for a nice lunch or spend the afternoon in the pool. We didn't stay there so cannot comment on the room.

A great location, lovely bungalow and great pool with stunning views. But we also came for tranquility which is something the management missed when they took on a large wedding party.

We were there for 3 nights, the first was the night of the party and at check in they told us that 100 people were arriving and we wouldnt be able to order food that night, and it would be very noisy!

Really took the shine off this place as it sells itself on being remote and peaceful. I think a small business loses its way when it sees a 'big buck' on offer for an event, which undermines what they are offering their regular customers.
If they had put a note on their website we could have moved our dates to get the peace we wanted. They could also have added a note to their email confirmation; but to be told at check in was poor. The staff and owner were running around like headless chickens and we got multiple versions of whether they would feed us or not, if so when, and what and if it was free or not by way of apology. We understood they had told us that they could provide some Thai food, fried rice and phad Thai in our room later, by about 20:00 we braved the party to get a drink and ask about food. They had mistaken our post check in lunch, as our meal and hadn't thought to bring us anything. They quickly apologised and rustled up some cold noodles, which I think were wedding buffet leftovers as they couldnt have cooked it and let it get that cold in the time it took to come out.

We ate and returned to our room, I felt like a naughty child, the adults were having a party, we weren't welcome! That night we watched a couple of movies as the music was too loud for sleep or reading.

I hoped the lady owner would be around the next day for me to express my disappointment, but she was not, on our last day we learnt that she has gone away. I felt it inappropriate to complain to the local staff as they were very genuine and trying to do the best for us, and our final two days were lovely... But I am upset about our first day, with just a bit of communication we could have missed the party - in fairness they should have block booked the resort!

Some other guests took up the offer of a free lift into Chaweng to get away from the party, but we had just been staying there and had no desire to go back in; we booked quiet seclusion and got mini chaweng!

Apart from that significant black mark against Jungle Club, the rest of our stay was great, and for that i have scored it fairly, I accept that my grievence is specific and not a usual experience. However I would urge the management to consider the impact more carefully and communicate it clearly, to allow people to choose.

The pool is the best feature of this place, built around rocks and into the hill it is lovely, bigger than I expected; with wooden loungers with cushions.

The food was okay, not amazing... I would be disappointed to visit just for the food, but add the view which is stunning day and night, plus the peace!!! On the whole I am left quite dissatisfied, but still recommend it to others but suggest you ask about 'big party' as it was referred to; to make sure you are getting the peace and quiet you are hoping for.

Nice location... Service was very poor and the staff struggled to break a smile!! Did not make us feel over welcome..... Ordered our starters and mains... Mains came out first! There was a long black hair in my sea food linguine... I didn't want to make to much fuss about it but told the waitress who asked if I would like it replaced. I said no and decided to eat it anyway... Main was ok.. My girlfriends was pretty cold and the starters did not come out until 8 mins after we finished the mains!!? Overall experience was dissapointed. Over priced for what was on offer 3 out of 10.

A friend advised we stay here, and I'm so glad we did. Firstly, the views are breathtaking, helped along by the infinity pool. We didn't eat at the restaurant a lot, but the meals were good, and the fruit shakes were perfect, you can ask for (and get) almost anything you want! Jake, who collected us from the airport was an invaluable resource while we were there. One thing to note, as you are quite high up, you need to be driven down in a 4x4 to get to the main land of the island, and you also need to be picked up.. so make sure you have a phone and Jake's number! The bungalows were clean, simple and very tasteful, it truly felt like paradise!
