If you want to totally wind down, this is the place. It is hard to belive that this pretty place, situated on a beautiful little beach, is only a half hour's boat trip away from busy Phuket. This is much more how I remember Thailand being twenty some years ago. We stayed at the two bedroom pool villa. It had...

After a fairly frantic tour round Thailand our last stop was the Glow resort, where we just wanted to relax and chill out. Definitely found the right place, the rooms are lovely, the staff are very friendly and attentive- all of them, sorry can't remember names now, but everyone from the front desk, to the pool bar, to the restaurant...

We returned to GLOW Elixir for a weekend getaway to recharge. This resort is easy 30 minute boat ride from Phuket and is on a private cove that is just beautiful. You get entrancing sunsets night after night. Meals can all be taken seaside. This is a relaxed resort and life slows down for a few days while you are...

In one word: horrible! The so called villas are barely huts that have not been renovated since the 70s! The staff seems nice but does not speak a word of English! The food is as good as a food stand you can find on the road! And the beach is the beach you've always dreamed of! With so many rocks...

This January/February we spent a full month in this sunny and guests friendly paradise. We received by the Resort’s staff and Resort Manager, Ms Tuangrat Kanthaboon, a very warm welcome and unprecedented treatment throughout our stay. Their respect was equally and continuously demonstrated with all guests in the Resort, visitors from France, China, Finland, Hong Kong, Germany, Russia, Australia, Poland,...

Villas were clean and awesome. Buffet breakfast was enough big and tasty. If you want peaceful holiday and away from noisy streets you choose GLOW. The beach in low tide is guite hard to swim, but it is same situation all over the island. Very nice place, and would come back another time.

It was exactly ten years ago in Jan 2007 that I first stayed in Elixir. It was a bold idea to build a hotel in a remote and primitive island that was not easily accessible, I was picked up at the airport, the resort now has its brand new 12m speed boat to gave a classy ride, landed on the...

Ok, as you will read this place can be a challenge to get to. To alleviate that, the hotel offers to arrange all pickup but you will pay a premium. You can totally handle this all by yourself on the cheap. Travel-All you gotta do is get to the island, whether from Bang Rong or Ao Nang or where ever,...

We enjoyed our stay at the Glow Elixir Resort. The bungalow was clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet offered asian and continental breakfast. They have an outside restaurant next to the sea, but some evenings were quite windy. The food is more expensive than in the other places around the island. We rent a scooter and went to a different...
