Firstly, the company denied that we had booked a pick up, despite my printed confirmation including pick up time and location. They eventually apologized and sent a taxi to collect us. Then, we also did not use the ramp pictured. We used the waterball and it was PAINFUL. The opening used to get in and out of the ball is... More

Very overpriced, ride lasted around 10 seconds, very very poor value for money and the ramp advertised was not functional and was completely different to the one in the leaflet and was very rusty and in ruins. the ride also was no where near 250m.

It was a unique experience - that's for sure. Tumbling down the hill was exhilarating, no doubt about that. However all up the ride (can I call it that?) lasted about 10 seconds. More importantly, the wooden structure which is pictured was/is dysfunctional. I'm not sure whether it's permanently not in use or whether it's just temporarily undergoing fixing... From... More

I your in samui for a few days this is definanlty worth checking out. scenery is just beautiful all around and you can relax before and after the waterball and play some golf. The hardest thing to do is find the place. We drove around a little while looking for it so it may pay to get taken there or... More

Beautiful waterful but longer hike up than we expected. Rocks can be slippery and there is not stairs, railing or anything in some areas. There are a number of places that you can choose to stop hike and swim in the waterfall pools!

This was a great hike up the mountain but it's also exhausting. We took a little dip in the waterfalls to cool off once we were up there. The only negative to this was the treatment of the elephants at their main grounds - I wish they would enforce better facilities for these animals.

We had great difficulties finding this on our Motorbikes, because we only had a small map and were looking for a turn off somewhere between the Tesco and the Traffic Lights, and the map didn't have a scale, but we eventually found it. HINT - THIS IS RIGHT NEXT TO THE GECKO BAR (which has signs every few meters once... More
