Excellent service and beautiful location would perfectly define this resort. As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed by the manager, Gino, who explained the facilities and the activities options at this little paradise. He was followed by chef Scott, who made sure that the whole kitchen was aware of our food preferences. Gino and his staff kindly took us...

Our family spent 4 memorable nights in this wonderful resort. After two days in busy Patong Beach we needed a place to relax and spend some time seeing the real Thailand. And it didn't disappoint.

I did my research, it looked great. The staff are lovely, the rooms are nice.BUT the beach is so so dirty and polluted. When the tide is out you can see all the broken bottles and rubbish. There is no way you could safely swim in this beach. The food selection is very poor, seafood a big letdown.. The chef...

Dear Gail, Thank you kindly for your candid feedback of your recent stay at our resort, which is very much appreciated. With regard to the dirty beach, it is quite challenging to keep the sand clear of debris every year in the monsoon season (June to October) as strong wind and powerful currents send waves of garbage from the ocean...

We just got back from 3 nights here to end our week trip to Thailand.

This is the side of Thailand that we were expecting-quiet beaches, no jet skis, banana boats, parasailing and the likes. We island hopped for a few weeks and unfortunately Glow Elixir was the last stop on our trip. I am sure that if we stayed there as our first destination we would have definatly stayed longer.

Agree with Pilotguy1's review on this place.
