Sensational resort!

Street, United Kingdom

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon before travelling a little further onto the Phi Phi islands. We’d happily stay here again (for even longer!). We booked a panoramic deluxe room - it was absolutely stunning; a huge room, glazed all around overlooking Karon and the ocean. Despite all the bi folding doors the room felt very private. The bed was SO comfortable and the bathroom was fantastic, a huge walk in shower and an even bigger stand alone bath tub. The restaurants are brilliant. The breakfast buffet (served in the Charm Thai) is to die for, I’ve never seen such a vast selection, all fresh - all tasty. The staff couldn’t be nicer, always checking things are well. Lunch and dinner also serves here - it’s ok. We had two dinners at the other restaurant called Chom Talay - wow! Beautifully presented Thai food with fantastic service. We’d like to mention Meaw, one of the waitresses, she was incredible and really helped to make it a special experience. Karon beach is awesome (despite a rogue wave stealing my sunglasses) and it’s only a 5-10 minute walk - seriously a taxi isn’t needed. With that said, we just loved the pools at the resort, especially the ones with the swim up bars. Great cocktails (240 baht). Happy hour runs from 4pm to midnight AMAZING!! Hope to stay here again - thank you so much for all the little touches which made this an amazing honeymoon stay too.

Total relaxation

Esperance, Australia

This place is a little slice of paradise. The staff can not help you enough and they are all so friendly. The rooms are gorgeous, it was like staying in our own little day spa. The rooms are huge, and styled beautifully. We had a freestanding bath, pendant lights, king bed and a balcony over looking the tropical gardens. We stayed for my 30th birthday and the staff surprised me with a gorgeous birthday cake, was such a lovely treat to find in our room. I would recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed!!
