Beautiful Place But...
Posted Sep 12, 2016
The resort itself was beautiful, the rooms were amazing and the staff was lovely... it was also ridiculously huge, we had to walk up 175 stairs to get to our rooms or take the elevators but that was up one floor walk to next elevator up 2 floors etc. so walking up stairs was easier.
It isn't that close to Karon township - you either have to walk along the road (only about 100-200m but no path) or along the beach - which would have been fine except we went when there was a storm so we couldn't cross the little waterway.
The food was over priced - don't get me wrong, it was delicious. Phuket was the last stop in our Thai adventure (having been to Railay, Koh Samui, Koh Phanang, and Koh Tao) and we were paying easily 1000-1500 thb per meal here whereas everywhere else was 300-500 thb. Same with the water, we would pay 40 thb everywhere else at a restaurant for water, and at the resort it was 120 thb... Its still not expensive! but just something to be mindful of.
Make sure you include breakfast in the booking!!! I thought I had, but when we got there it wasn't on our reservation, so breakfast was going to be 1500 thb per person, and by this point in the trip, we really did not want to be paying near enough to 5000 thb in food per day.
Overall, I would recommend this place to people, it is a beautiful resort, and the staff were so friendly and accommodating, but there were just a couple of things to be mindful of, which I wish i had known about when I booked :)
