We were so excited to be staying here but I must say we left rather disappointed. We went on this holiday purely to relax so we didn't mind a little isolation, however this place is literally in the middle of no where. It is a good 45 minute drive from Phuket airport to the pier, then you must wait for a dingy style boat to the island, then you must wait again for a tuk tuk to take you to the resort. Lets not even mention the walk from the tuk tuk to your room as the place is so big and spread out. Prepare for at least a minium 1 hour journey to and from the resort regardless of where you want to go and remember, that is travelling all in the extreme heat. We had our 2 year old son with us and our room was literally like a hike up a small mountain to get to. If the guest was frail or old I would hate to imagine how scary it would be and dangerous for them to just get to their front door! Definately not pram friendly either. The rooms are lovely, clean, spacious and well air conditioned, and the private pools and ocean views are undeniably amazing. Without these luxuries however, the place would be a severe No Go zone for us. The resort food and drink prices were typical of a 5 star hotel in Australia and as there is no where else to go, you have to pay it! Also the beach is not swimable and note, when the tide goes out you can see the sewage drain that runs straight into the ocean out the very front of the hotel. We have back packed the world so we are not precious, however, we were let down by this resort and would sadly not go back again.
