We spent four days at this wonderful hotel and did not want to leave. The service is excellent, the rooms so comfortable and interesting and the hotel a real delight to wander around and appreciate the antiques. Plyasiri, the head chef, produced some superb dishes and he and his team were always helpful and attentive. Lovely pool and beach area....

What a special place! Brendan and his staff couldnt have been more welcoming and friendly especially to our children. Kids loved playing football with the pool attendants. The villas and grounds are beautiful and well kept. So much attention to detail. Clearly a labor of love. Highly recommend taking a driver and visiting the turtle sanctuary and boat trip to...

Its obvious that the owners of this place love their artifacts and enjoy to present them across the property and in the very spacious rooms. While this can be a matter of taste, it very well works. But what makes this place really special is the crew who runs this place. All of them are very attentive and know what...

We recently spent 8 days at the Reef. It is exactly what it says - a villa and spa - so don't expect a big brand beach resort hotel experience and if this is what you're looking for the Reef may not be right for you. What we can say is that the rooms are very well furnished, spacious, and...

We happened to visit end of May 2016, just after the devastating floods that hit the area. While driving to the hotel, we saw the sad evidence of the destruction caused.

Dear Sami O We have already corresponded on this matter and it is undoubtedly very odd that you make this complaint now after you have left and yet you made no negative comments to me personally whatsoever and only complimented me on the hotel. Your main issue with your stay is that you claimed the floor of your suite was...
