Overall this was an excellent resort. The view from the beach is unbelievably spectacular. The resort is on a very quiet island, making it very relaxing and far from the usual tourist crowds of Phuket. The food at the resort's restaurant is excellent. Everything is fresh and it was some of the best Thai food I had on my entire trip to Thailand. The pool is lovely as it's faces the beach and the view of the water and outlying mountains.
My reasons for not giving this resort 5/5 was due to the lack of proper service staff; they didn't really know how to properly wait tables or focus on the guest experience. It was small things, such as the small "lobby" area of the resort was were the staff/family members of owners tended to hang out and watch TV. It would be better to have a separate staff lounge of this purpose as this area was right beside the restaurant and having Thai pop music playing loudly during dinner was not great. The resort was also doing construction directly beside the restaurant during our stay and there was almost constant welding and construction noise during the daytime which made it a bit harder to relax at the pool. These were small things but they took away from the overall experience which would have otherwise been perfect. Also the website mentioned that they could arrange rock climbing, but when we asked about this they didn't even understand what we were talking about!
