The villas themselves are beautiful and spacious, the grounds are lovely. The location is good with shops out the front but close enough to beautiful kata beach. Breakfasts are really good. Great for a 2 night stay

This hotel is beautiful, it is relaxing and the attention to detail in the decor is out of this world. However, the staff aren't great. We invited a friend to spend the day with us at the pool, the pool area was very quiet and only 2 other guests were using it. We spent quite a lot of money that... More

This is one of the most beautiful villas that I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The experience starts at the main entrance and doesn't end until you are getting waved goodbye to when you leave. Words don't do their two-floor villas justice. They are stunning! Just go and stay there!
