We have stayed at the Ao Prao Resort in the past and were much more impressed those times then we were on our most recent trip. When we pay over $218 a night for a Deluxe Cottage we have certain expectations, and those expectations where not meet. In many ways my room of about $31 per night in Bangkok was...

What a fantastic island and an absolutely beautiful resort. There isn't anything we could complain about as we have visited this island before and knew what we were getting. Five star treatment in all aspects. Could live here forever....Food, people, beaches...what an amazing experience and we wish it had been for longer

Yes, you are a captive in a resort like this but we were very content. Our de luxe chalet was comfortable and well appointed the evensong from our local gecko never failed to raise a smile. Infinity pool lovely, breakfast plenty of choice, and evening meal good too. Service was good and we really had no problems at all. Recommended...

When you select such a costly restaurant adding service charges, you generally expect to be well treated! Our dinner at Breeze restaurant was just disastrous due to the poor service provided... Long waiting time to order and to be served, most of wines listed in the menu not available, 20 minutes to get sparkling water while some other drinks ordered...
