I loved my time here. I was looking for somewhere quiet after traveling for a month. The property and design speaks for itself. The staff is so lovely and accommodating - from check in to the restaurant to pool attendants. They were also so kind to surprise me with a birthday cake and accommodate a late flight. The made to order breakfast was also delicious. The choice of two pools and beach are perfect. I will definitely stay here again!

Fell in love with the unique minimalist design, it’s beautiful! Staff was friendly and helpful especially grateful for Opor at reception. There was a thunderstorm one night, water leaked from our glass door, it was quickly repaired the next morning and management was nice to give us drinks credits. Overall the entire resort needs to catchup on cosmetic repairs so the place can return to its full glory. Will gladly stay here again when we return to Samui. Thank you!

Great contemporary hotel and restaurant
Great contemporary style hotel. A little long for check in due to a mix up between and the hotel but that was the only issue. The facilities were excellent and I was impressed with the breakfast as it was a la carte rather than buffet and great quality

Love this hotel❤️
Amazing stay. This is my second time in this hotel and I absolutely loved it. Room are extremely comfortable and breakfast is fantastic. It beds some make over and some painting to the exterior but it didn’t affect our wonderful experience. I will definitely come back in the future ❤️🙏💫

One of the friendliest and helpful staff I’ve encountered. They helped us navigate the COVID testing requirements and assisted with the logistic to get to and from the testing facility. They also assisted with transportation to our next hotel in Ko Phangang, they called the other hotel and looked into the schedule, price for their private boat shuttle and booked us on the boat. On the morning we checked out, we left before the breakfast was served so they packed us a little snack bag with sandwiches and drinks. 10/10 for the staff there.
