This was my first time staying at a small luxury hotel and the experience was excellent. All hotel staff were friendly with a nice smile. Room décor was modern and cozy. I joined the add-on wellness program which included 2 yoga sessions, 3 healthy meals and 1 massage each day. I would recommend to do this separately next time as the package price was a bit overpriced when I looked at the break-down of each item. Overall, the yoga instructors were encouraging and had helped me improve my yoga poses. The meals were planned out each day by the chefs and were excellent in taste and in presentation, but it was not necessarily 'healthy' for all meals - I was served with green curry lobster and red curry squid. For the massage, it was very relaxing in comfortable rooms. However, I found the massage was the most overpriced item in this wellness package. E.g. I can have a full spa and not just a 50 min massage at a similar price. In general, it was one of the most relaxing vacation I had and I enjoyed every minute of my stay at Aleenta.

A serene and quiet place to be at if you prefer not to be disturb. Luna restaurant serves superb and creative authentic Thai food that you should not miss it. You will be pleasantly surprised! Personalized and attentive hotel staff that brings warmth to your stay.
We stayed here for 3 nights. It's a beautiful resort full of lush gardens, frangipani trees, a lake etc. The setting is stunning and it's a huge complex (if you will use the pool a lot it's better to get a room by the pool, otherwise you have to walk up or buggy to the reception). The reception is decked out in Thai style decor, which is nice compared to the other modern resorts around the area.
The pool is huge,warm, and there is a pool bar where you can order food or drinks. There are also 2 big hot spring pools which are lovely. The gym is in a beautiful setting overlooking the lake. Equipment is pretty old, but there is a lot of variety.
The staff are friendly and nice, but their english isn't very good and sometimes they can't understand you. It is in a very remote area, but they do have a shuttle bus to take you into a huge tesco supermarket, or there are a few restaurants and shops near the supermarket that they can take you to as well. But generally don't go here if you want to shop and have an abundance of food choice.
The only downside to this compared to some of other resorts is that it's not directly on the beach front. You have to cross a jetty to get the beach, and the beach on this side is quite barren, and the current here quite strong. not great for swimming.
Overall though, the resort is stunning and i was surprised at how huge it was. Rooms were nice but TV was old and picture fuzzy.

Some of the staff are amazingly proactive, and helpful. The beach was dramatically beautiful and the pool well positioned on the edge of the beach. I stayed there for 5 days on my own and was very happy.
We had a great stay here. The location is a bit isolated, but we had motorcycles, so that wasn't a big problem for us. We only stayed one night, but I think that if we stayed longer, we would get a little bored since it is so isolated. Staff is very friendly and the surroundings were beautiful!
