5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great service

It was perfect and nice. The only thing to comment is the turist comming in with boats every day to see the island on the beach and They where very loud, even made the beach dirty. That was not relaxing. But the resort was amazing and great service.

Perfect Asian getaway

I am reluctant to give a good rating as I want to keep the Racha to ourselves! Wonderful place. Complete revitalisation. Really friendly and helpful staff. Lovely food and spa. Perfect for our wedding anniversary.

    Worst resort we’ve been at so far and we’ve been to many. Wayyyy too overpriced and not worth your money. Food is garbage and overpriced. Nothing was good here . The beach was the best thing . Never recommending this resort to anyone
