This was our second time staying here. The pool villas are so nice and the staff was very friendly and courteous. Everything about the stay was fantastic. The only issues we had were booking boat transfer and checking in. Apparently you need to contact the property directly to book boat transfer not via Expedia “contact property” feature. You’ll check in at the boat and they inform you your room number. When you arrive to the hotel to get the key they have 15-20 guests they need to introduce the property to but some rooms are already ready, so they should prioritize guests with rooms ready, it was a bit unorganized but otherwise it worked out well. We will certainly be back.

This was supposed to be a 5 star resort.
This was supposed to be a 5 star resort. Well. It is far from that. When I ordered through hotels.com it was specifically noted that airport transfer is included. This place is located at a remote island and only accessible with a boat. Upon check in the guy at the desk argued aggressively that I need to pay extra 950 Bhat for the transfer since it's not included. Be aware of this extra payments as the trap will not be exposed until you are already on the way to the hotel!! Secondly, the weather was stormy and we had 1 full day without electricity! The staff told me the whole island has no electricity due to bad weather but this was not the case as the lights outside were lit just fine. The room was leaking and rain started to fall inside and flood the villa. They ignored the issue when I called them ! The staff understand basic English only and communication is minimal, making check in and check out process tiresome. Food ordered as room service was surly not a 5 star - small and basic pizza that belong to a 3 start hotel at the best case
