Quiet and clean room with balcony and a seaview, big and clean swimming pool. Second swimming pool is shared by several rooms, but it is much smaller than the main one. The room is big and clean, either the territory is. The breakfast was poor, but maybe because of the low season.

I like this hotel because the room is big . It has a small private beach in front where you can have a breakfast in the morning.i suggest room Sea view because have a very nice view. Need to update a little bit but is a very good value for money.

This is a very quiet hotel. There was inly about 4 rooms full during our stay. The staff were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The resort needs a lot of work especially in the restaurant. The breakfast doesn't have a lot to choose from and the rest of the food is not that tasty. We went out for lunch and dinner after eating here once. No value for tour money in the restaurant. The spa and fitness centre is non existing. The garden doesn't get much attention and they need to clean around the resort. We didn't have warm water in the bathroom most of the time. I have to complement the staff for upgrading us to a room with sea view for free as ours were overlooking a bunch of trees. The bed is as hard as rock and my husband struggled to get some proper sleep and had back pain in the morning because of the bed. This could be one of the best resorts after some work is done here.

Really lovely VERY quiet hotel with SOME attentive staff! We found the thai cuisine was absolutely amazing but not so much the international cuisine....think it might have been a shop bought pizza! Pool was lovely and the beach view gorgeous, you have to move a little further down the beach for some sand and depth! Good location also, 10 min walk from lamai and 15 min drive from chewang. Room was lovely, we were on the road as that was what we booked as it was cheaper, if youre a light sleeper would probably fork out for a seaview room as is a bit noisy but no problem for us! Shower leaks alot too and changes temperature! Despite the odd winge taking the price into consideration it was a really lovely hotel to stay and staff were friendly and helpful. Would definately stay here again if we visited!

We stayed at this hotel for 4nights. We found the staff very friendly and was given a clean, neat room. Spacious. Our two big negatives, (also written in other reviews)--> the very hard bed... there are no soft areas, whole matress is hard... --> the breakfast buffet. VERY small variety for tourists to really choose from (oats, cornflakes and coco pops were the porridge options, there was also watermelon and pineapple and then pork sausages). the other food were more for the asian culture and we couldnt make out with some,what it was... We LOVED their pool. Used it every single day. No fault with that.

Stayed at this hotel for a few days around New Year's. It's located in Lamai region of Ko Samui. Compared to Chaweng, it's in a quieter area and takes about 20 min drive to reach to Chaweng, so keep that in mind if you came to Samui for partying. It's in a beautiful setting with a nice pool and the sandy beach is just a minute walk away. Unfortunately, the nice location and the beach are the only good things about this hotel. Our room was facing towards the road and the sleep quality in those rooms are quite poor. There's car noise early in the morning and late at night. The shower in our room did not work properly. The water pressure was on and off all the time. The shower also did not keep water inside, we had water coming out of the shower all the time which was quite annoying. We had breakfast included but unfortunately, the quality of the breakfast was quite poor with not much choice. There was a New Year's dinner at the hotel, it was slightly better than breakfast but not that much better. Some of the staff was helpful throughout our stay but some did not seem to care about customer satisfaction. I still enjoyed staying at this hotel due to its beautiful location and the beach but next time, I'd probably pick another hotel closer to Chaweng. I hope the management takes a note and makes some improvements.

We had a xmas dinner in this hotel. Food was average at its best. Soup was great but everything else more or less below average. We have been travelling for over 3 months now and after having Sumayas dinner, we both got really sick. My girlfriend had to go to hospital for the pain and non-stop diarrhea. She had a salmon dish and I had a steak. I had my steak welldone but still i felt sonething was going on right after finnishing it. This hotel doesnt clearly have a clue how to cook meat or fish. I cant recommend eating here. Only reason i gave two "stars" was the friendly staff and thats it.

The poolside and restaurant area of the hotel is amazing...pure luxury and the staff cannot do enough for you. Our room was basic and noisy as it was on the road side, but we did pay for the budget rooms. However for the price it was still a great deal. Special mention has to be made for the fantastic assistance of the hotel manager when my daughter left her handbag on a taxi when we arrived at the hotel after travelling for 15 hours to get there. He personally drove her the half an hour journey to the ferry where we got on the taxi and when the taxi could not be found took her to the police station, The following day, he fetched her and with the assistance of the police the bag was found...still on the taxi!!! The hotel is away from the centre of Lamai, but as we love walking it suited as perfectly and I do miss walking along that beautiful beach every morning.

after one year and half, I'm back to this amazing hotel! It's definitely my favourite place to relax and chill. The director remembered me and treated me once again like a princess! The staff is amazing, Always caring about you. The restaurant was very good but This time it was just amazing, best fried rice vegetable in koh Samui and not expensive at all! I'm sad to leave this place tomorrow but I will definitely be back soon! I highly recommend this place! Thanks a million to the director and the staff and see you very soon.

It is an excellent place to relax, spending time.... Wifi is good to use and room service is also up to the mark. Hotel is adjacent to beach and very chilling place. In one sentence, you can spend your time without any worries. Thanks Nasimul
