We spent two weeks in Thailand at the end of January, staying in six different hotels along the way and this was by far the best! I travel quite a bit and I honestly couldn't think of a single thing to find fault with at this resort. We stayed in a sea view room and were expecting it to be...

The room was not clean. We had to call room service and waited for a long time. You can't go out anywhere because it's a private island. So, we ended up having to buy spa voucher to use while we stayed. Don't recommend to come during rainy season..not pleasant.
