This resort has everything to offer that one could ask for. The rooms are spacy, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Especially the bathroom excited me, as that is usually the least clean and appealing room in a hotel. Everything is clean, and you just feel like spending all your time inside.
The resort itsself is big and also very clean and beautiful, quiet and totally relaxing atmosphere.
The staff is super helpful and friendly, and the free breakfast offered has a wide range of food to choose from.
The only thing that is a little disappointing is the beach, it's not well maintained and quiet dirty. Not sure if this was because we stayed during off season.
All in all very recommended!

We stayed for 3 nights and found the resort to be comfortable with very accommodating and service minded staff. We especially appreciated the hospitality of Jaruda. We don't typically use pools at beach resorts, but found this one to offer a nice retreat from the hot sun of the nearby beach. The pool bar has a limited menu but a great happy hour- 100 baht cocktails! The grounds are nicely landscaped and the beach is a short walk. Located at the end of Long Beach, there is some ok snorkeling around the rocks at this end. The beach front restaurant has a limited and somewhat overpriced menu. But there are many restaurants that line the beach front with toes in the sand tables. We especially liked Thai Cat- located just down the beach. And there is a nice massage tent located at the pool and one right on the beach- where we enjoyed a wonderful Thai massage with ocean breezes. We really enjoyed our stay.
We stayed at this hotel following a friend's recommendation. The hotel was very clean and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were cleaned twice a day but for the 10 days we were there we never once saw them clean the room as they were very careful not to interrupt or inconvenience guests. The beach was clean and the transfers to and from the hotel were an absolute pleasure and planned to the last detail. Breakfast on the verandah was an absolute delight and guests were spoilt for choice with the food. We went on our honeymoon so it was at the top end of our budget. If we could afford to go again, we definitely would!

The apartment was really lovely, nice spacious balcony with self catering in the 2 bedroom apartment.
One thing to add the resort is great if you are planning to visit the gym/boxing stadium otherwise its not peaceful as the training starts in the morning and throughout the day and evening, you can't sit outside peacefully as the gym has no doors, even with the doors closed you can hear the boxing whilst you are asleep as they tend to start at 07:30.
The resort only opened in December so they haven't really got it together, no hairdryer in the room, no umbrellas by the sun beds by the pool (only 6 sunbeds), we tried to order food on two occassions and was ignored twice so we gave up and ate outside.
Breakfast is not included and none of the rooms have sea view although the booking says it does. No hot water for 5 days.
Some improvements to be made.
Overall really lovely and complete apartment, top quality
