Well worth it

Frankfurt, Germany

We spent the last 10 days in the secret pool villa. The villa and the entire facility have met and exceeded our expectations. The staff was genuinely friendly and attentive to all needs. Our villa host name was Phatcharaphon (Bovy), a special thank you goes out to her for ensuring an outstanding experience during our stay.

Gorgeous, superb service

San Francisco, California

I am drawn to the most interesting place and this trip was no different. I looked through Four Seasons and Conrad and some how...found The Secret, @TheLibrarySamui. It was meant to be! From the first email to the last...the host, “Jean” was on top of it, made sure every detail was noted. Had high expectations and this resort top-it-all. Pick up/drop off was seamless. Jean and the driver arrived on-time, AC blasted, super clean car filled with drinks. Once we arrived to the resort, it was a moment of ‘took my breath away’. Every portion of the view was exactly the same. Our Chapter 17 was huge, spacious, fully-stocked, spotless clean. Our very own pool in between the living room and bedroom, enough said! The red pool, the Secret area, the Index, the restaurant...and ummmm, yes, the beach! Thank you for all the customized service, super friendly staff. Immaculate!!! Whimsical experience, I am a big fan. Ready for the next chapter...
