Wow. Could not rate this hotel more highly. I’ve stayed at 6* hotels before and nothing compares to this place. It was honestly like stepping into a fairy tale film. Despite all the corona madness, the staff made everyone feel completely at ease. We felt totally self and secure there. The rooms are incredible- the buffet breakfast was out of this world. They also had good promotions on - eg 30% off dinners and happy hours. Can not wait to come back!!!

This resort was extremely well thought out. The buildings, decor, transportation around the resort, comfort and convenience were just amazing. All of the staff are kind and very helpful. We checked out before breakfast today to catch an early flight, and to our surprise they packed us breakfast to go! That is going way above and beyond our expectations. The only 2 things we didn’t like, are the airport shuttle/ferry cost and the cost to eat at the resort. All of the resorts I’ve been to, include a shuttle to the resort at no additional cost. Here, to take airport shuttle and ferry to the resort, it is about 1,250 baht per person per way. Then the food on the resort is about double (or more) of the price of an average meal in Thailand or just off the resort. If there wasn’t a town just outside of the resort so we could eat great local food at a fraction of the resort price, I would be much more upset. Overall, we would definitely recommend this resort to everyone but advise them to find alternative transportation and buy groceries before heading to the ferry.
