The island resort is peaceful and relaxing. We went to the private beach at 10.30am until around 1.40pm and there were never more than 12 people there. The mangrove kayaking excursion was good fun but much shorter than expected. We enjoyed an a decently priced meal for dinner, and breakfast buffet wasn't bad. The room though a little dated was very nice. Unfortunately we had a problem with no hot water. After a cold shower, we called reception and someone came to fix the issue. The next morning the shower was still cold. Another issue was that when it rained, a fair amount of water leaked through the roof into the bathroom. A final irritation was the 300+ ringgit fee that was charged separate to the hotel booking for a 5 minute boat ride to and from the island. There is no reason why this compulsory charge is not already included in the original booking, other than to make it seem as if the hotel rooms are cheaper when you book, only for you to find out on arrival you need to pay an additional amount.

Beautiful clean beach with a coral reef just off shore. 3 restaurants, lots of activities throughout the day and the rooms were clean/comfortable. The dessert buffet was outstanding!! Seriously!! If you’re debating between here and the beach bungalows next door (which we also stayed at) choose here!! The prices are much more reasonable and the beach is a huge bonus. The best part was their accommodation to our 2am flight. They let us check out very late (11pm) and organized a private boat back to the mainland for us to get to the airport. I’ve never had a hotel be that accommodating. Thank you so much to all the staff for helping with that.

We stayed 2 nights at a low occupancy period so it was very pleasant. The star of the staff team was Justin who made an effort to talk to every guest and he and the staff also went the extra mile to help us with our TV in the room so we could watch Netflix. We enjoyed snorkelling (just by the jetty) and learning about the rescued sea turtles (Covid and Barbara) and the flying squirrel. Great work that Justin and his team are doing! Thank you and we will be back!

This is my first time staying at a boutique hotel. The overall environment is not bad, but some details are not that good. Drinks in the room cost money, landing on the island costs money, and taking a boat also costs money. However, the relative services and facilities are not that good. In the swimming pool It rained during this period, and the service staff did not show up to open the umbrella, and there was no car to take the guests to their rooms. These things need to be improved. The so-called boutique hotels need high-end supplies, better services, and better facilities.

I consider myself to be quite well travelled but this was an excellent resort. I think the staffs would go a long way with a little more training to make processes more efficient, but I can’t complain about their kindness and commitment to making your stay a truly memorable one. They always do go a step beyond to help you and I cannot thank them enough for making our stay a truly wonderful experience and I would definitely stay here again next time I come back to KK.
