We stayed for two nights in March and highly recommend The Rocks Villas. It's in a great location, very walkable to the beach and Sairee Beach, and it was clean and cozy. Janine was very friendly and accommodating. She has great recommendations for restaurants and even set us up with a private boat tour around the Island which was one...

True paradise to wake up to the amazing view and enjoy morning coffee in the hammock on the balcony. Janine, the host, was very welcoming and immediately gave an idea about the island and the location making our stay a wonderful experience! For my next Thailand visit, I will make sure to stay there again!

We stayed in Rocks Villas for a week, with a family of five people. We stayed in the two bedroom villa closest to the pool, and had nice views over the bay from our hammock on the patio. Gianmarco was a kind host, and looked after us exceedingly well. The villa was cleaned every day to a good standard. We...

We stayed for two week in one of the seaview villas at The Rocks Villas and I can't rate it highly enough. Staying there you have all the advantages of a hotel (daily housekeeping, communal pool, people on hand to help you) but all the space and privacy of a private villa. And the view! It was just fantastic. From...
