Location, staff, room, amenities, staff all great. Getting there from the airport is really the only tricky part (spend a lot and get private transfer, or figure out public mini van). Once there, it's a one stop shop for relaxing and touring the island. On site restaurant, bar, dive shop and scooter rental left me no reason to go anywhere...

A welcome relief after the noisy and dirty Bangkok that we visited first on our Thailand trip. Perfectly manicured garden, super friendly and accommodating staff, comfortable bungalow with everything one can possibly need. And all that steps away from the beautiful and quiet Long Beach that you'll never tire of walking along. Absolutely breathtaking sunsets that you'll love to observe...

Stayed here three nights. Got picked up from the ferry and taken to the hotel. Resort was beautiful. Room was very clean and very cozy. Rain and windy conditions made me wish for a pool, as it was to rough to go in the ocean but that is what you get during rainy season. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant...
