Experience staying in the hotel was very pleasant and relaxing with good service at all levels from hotel staff. Room is clean and comfortable. Very suitable for couples who want to have a romantic and relaxing holiday. Not too many hotel guests or familiies crowding the premise since the total occupancy units available is only 40. Exclusive.
Location is slightly far from the bustling Krabi town or food walking street (approximately 35-45 minutes taxi drive away) Thus for guests who wants more interesting shopping activities or street food, it will be less desirable. Beach front within the hotel is not as pretty as those found in bigger hotel chains. Hotel only has one small restaurant option.
I can't rave enough about this hotel. The room was enormous with fantastic views of the sea and the rocky islands. The staff was always on hand to help with every need, including our butler Aom and the fun/entertaining pool bar staff. The resort was relatively quiet while we were there and it was a true piece of paradise. Definitely take advantage of the boat trip to Hong Island too.
We ate dinner on site one night and prices were as expected for a resort. If you are looking for other dinner options, I recommend the restaurant at the neighbor resort Tabkuuk (?) that has nice ocean front seating and good happy hour prices. We went into Ao Nang one night and regretted it, since we would have preferred being back at the resort and our uncrowded beach.
Unfortunatelly the only way to get to the hotel is by sea but hotel itself arranges it from the town and you dont have to pay. Hotel is staff is very friendly and check in is very fast. All i can say is that it worths the money. Rooms, environment, sea, spa.. just perfect. Rooms are clean and checked for your needs by the staff twice a day. Spa experience was one of my bests so far. Trees, monkeys, butterflies, fish.. nature is perfect. Unfortunately hotel offers nothing for night fun. All you can do is to walk nearby filthy bars which I wouldnt recommend because they were the worst in all Thailand. There are three restaurants in the hotel, to me they all serve same food. I would recommend asking if the food you chose is served hot or cold or any detail. For example they serve tomato soup cold.
We stayed at this hotel following a friend's recommendation. The hotel was very clean and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were cleaned twice a day but for the 10 days we were there we never once saw them clean the room as they were very careful not to interrupt or inconvenience guests. The beach was clean and the transfers to and from the hotel were an absolute pleasure and planned to the last detail. Breakfast on the verandah was an absolute delight and guests were spoilt for choice with the food. We went on our honeymoon so it was at the top end of our budget. If we could afford to go again, we definitely would!
