Good location. That's it. But there are MUCH better alternatives. Our room overlooked the entrance. Scruffy room. Decent pool. Only there two nights so not a big problem. Would not visit again. Try Vivi or Penn Villas and get a taxi.

I think describing this hotel as a 'resort and spa' is a bit of a stretch. Having said that, we did enjoy our two night stay there and overall it was good value for money. We took one of the standard rooms and it was basic but absolutely fine for what we needed. The deluxe rooms in the newer building... More

Really liked the way this hotel is run they have plenty of staff to make your stay enjoyable. The pools are really good for this grade of property. The only downside is no lift and the stairs can be quite tough in hot weather. A really nice place to spend a few days.

Beautiful, small resort with extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Well maintained compared to a lot of other smaller resorts I've stayed in throughout Phuket. The only negative is that there are no lifts, especially if you are on the third floor and during extreme humidity, it's not a pleasant experience climbing all those stairs. If you're not fit or able... More
