Great management team

Excellent hotel. Well catered for families with children. Restaurants very good especially Hagi. I’ve stayed at many 5 star resorts over the years with my kids. Only thing was some of the staff follow the rules to pinpoint precision. I think a bit of flexibility would be great. However this may have just been me with language barrier. However they are all still very friendly. This is one of the best resorts I’ve been to. Main reason is the management. Boris is a superb manager. Really friendly and down to earth and extremely funny. This guy is definitely going places. Darren the main manager is also great as is Laurent - executive chef. You always see them around talking to guests and even serving you. I haven’t seen main managers in other resorts actually working on the shop floor. Really nice to see. Special thanks to yoot and tik from activities. They really entertained the kids really well. We are off to pimalai - close by resort so will leave a comparison as can be difficult choosing between the two to help others out. Really guys thank you. You are an asset to the industry Best regards BR

Honeymoon Stay

We arrived at this resort half way through out honeymoon in Thailand. It was our least favorite of all our stays. First, to get to the resort you need to take a speedboat, which was not told to us. When we got on the boat we were in regular clothes and sat in the front. The sea was rough and we got completely soaked including some of our luggage and passports. I don't mean some spray from the sea, I mean completely soaked through. To get off the boat you need to walk on a plastic jetty that felt unsafe. When we arrived no one seem to care we were wet and made us wait to be checked in. The room and view was beautiful and they did pay for our laundry service for our clothes. The food was overall very good. On The Rocks had a great happy hour! We did have a bad experience with one of the concierge employees. We booked our trip through a travel agent in the U.S. and they told us each resort should be able to reconfirm out tours. This concierge refused to help us because as he stated, "we did not book through their resort." We did not have this issue at either of the other places we stayed. We found the staff to be unfriendly and unwilling to help. This does not have the feel of a 5 star resort and is lacking in amenities. Many improvements would need to be made before we would consider staying here again.
