If you’re looking for quiet, a beautiful room and property, great staff, and close (free) proximity to Hong Island, this is definitely the hotel for you. No matter what, you will have a guaranteed amazing stay. Your personal butler and the staff are so helpful and kind, they anticipate your needs before you do. The room is TO DIE FOR…as a bath tub connoisseur, I have to say this one takes the cake. It is much more of a romantic property than a party or social one, so if you’re looking for that type of experience, either bring the party with you or stay closer to the main part of the city. We were a solid 20-30 min outside of Ao Nong or downtown Krabi, but you can catch a taxi for 4-500 Bhat and catch a Tuk tuk back no problem. We also outsourced our activities through trip advisor and went ATV and zip lining but the staff was super helpful in contacting the agents themselves and reserving our appointments. They really are there to help you have the best stay possible. Hong Island is to die for- and is free with the hotel. The actual beach attached to the property is not ideal for laying out as its rocky but the pool makes up for it and so does the easy access to the surrounding beaches and islands. Lastly, book an extra day than you anticipate. You’re going to want a day to lounge outside of exploring and not just on the last day of the trip. Oh lastly, the spa is pretty great and so is the breakfast buffet!. Enjoy!
