First solo holiday for 8 years

On arrival after the short drive from the fantastic samui airport it was a breath of fresh air to find the friendly smiles waiting to greet me and I was quickly shown to my room which had fantastic panaromic views of the sea. My room was huge and cleaned to a high standard and a bowl of fruit was waiting for me. The bathrooms are a little dated but I quite liked that as it adds to the charm and has a good hot shower with always strong pressure which you dont always get in thailand. The resort itself is just lovely and so relaxed particularly if you are a solo traveller like me as you get left alone and nobody cares that you are alone and I found all the staff and everyone staying there extremely friendly as easy to talk too, particularly a Swedish couple I met who were so lovely and always took the time to say hello, if your reading this thank you and I will take you up on your offer of your summer house in Sweden one of these days! Breakfast was great, lots of choice, egg station also great, views amazing and they always got me a table overlooking the beautiful sea, breakfast was never busy and a very relaxed affair, thank you to the lovely staff who always kept my coffee topped up! I would like to thank all the staff for making my visit a great one and I will definitely be back for some more much needed unwinding

After a few days in Bangkok, once stepping onto the beach, had a deep inhale and both said...'this is where the holiday starts'.
Perfectly situated a short ride, or 20 minute walk from town. Stopping right in town puts you right under the plane flightpath.
The accom was brilliant. Saw lots of duff reviews, but we were impressed. It was birthday/honeymoon trip and the travel agent let them know. Our room was done up superbly, with petals/flowers/cake etc. Staff were all brilliant - opposite to alot of reviews.
Breakfast choice was brilliant. Not sure why people said it was repetitive? There was oodles of choice and not sure what else they could've been looking for? Really would advise this place.
Walk into town along the beach. Excellent restaurants on beach....and try the Coronaritas! Had issue with wifi. Dealt with immediately.
All trips were brilliant.
My second great visit

This was the second time that I have stayed here.
Staff are always helpful nice.Rooms are simple but you are not there to be in your room the whole time.
I stayed here during the cremation of the king and while the rest of the country shut down we were still being looked after. A great location right on the beach. Breakfast each morning was great. I would highly recommend this place to stay.

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights in the Deluxe Villa. It was clean and conveniently located close to the pool and hotel restaurant. The resort gives a relaxed vibe with easy access to the beach. The resort is also close to the Central Festival (though one will need to catch a mini bus or drive across).
Top marks for service

All staff from Mr Noppadol the hotel Manager, Pa from the beach bar, breakfast staff, cleaners, gardeners, etc were extremely friendly going above and beyond to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Staff smiles were genuine and we certainly felt like they cared for our happiness. Thank you one and all. Rooms, gardens, pools, etc were well maintained.
Lloyd the guitarist played a great mix of music in the restaurant most nights and we had so much fun dancing. For the most part food was good quality but would probably improve with greater custom in the high season. Greater promotion may encourage more holiday makers to use the hotel restaurant, even in low season, and hence improve offerings. Thank you once again to all staff from the happy Aussie dancing couple.
