I love this resort. It's fantastically well located and has a charming and romantic theme. Their beach restaurant is one of the best in Samui and serves delicious seafood to satisfy all tastes. I highly recommend this venue for couples, families or solo travellers.

Beautifully designed hotel, nothing missing in the room. The pool is also very nice with a bar next to it. Pretty quiet in the hotel and at the same time very close to the Chaweng center. Not the newest hotel and wasn't perfectly clean but good enough.
