7 quiet days January 2020

One hand nice eco lodge , on the other hand bungalows are settled on the sand but no beach available .... You have to wait the high tide back at the end of the morning . There is no private beach only bamboos all around the resort to keep the sand.
So when you book bungalows on the sand you think to have the opportunity to have a beach just beside.
A place for disconnection

This hotel is an excellent choice for disconnection and relax. For WiFi signal you have to go to reception, but this is what disconnection is about, right? As I read in another review, prizes are above average. Because beach is facing west, be prepared for stunning sunsets. However, beach is not suitable for bath, I think it's because it lack of deep. Staff is very nice and helpful. Consider this place if your goal is disconnection and relax
Only choice and thats what lets it down

Due to no passing trade and little options this place which is reasonably priced offers everything at a premium.
But having said that its a great island with some nice bike rides and few bits to see, welcoming small population. Great way to finish a tour of the region.
But expect to pay for it.
Rooms great size bit dated but comfy
Free DVD rental
Massage, food, booze overpriced. But all ok.
Quiet and peaceful , best place for retreat

A place for the sunset view.The pool is very nice especially with the cocktails! We definitely come back next year :))
Beautiful but remote location.

Lovely hotel - rooms are spacious, staff are friendly and the pool is fantastic and the location is remote. That is a positive and also a negative.
I had not appreciated how remote when booking it. I arranged to be picked up at the airport. We were taken to a marina which was deserted and then taken by long boat to to a pier and then a tuk tuk to the hotel. When we arrived, the tide was out - far out. So I had reservations - in fact my Mum immediately asked if we could go elsewhere!
We didn't, which I am glad about as it was very restful break. We were there over Christmas and there were only a handful of people there. The hotel was not busy which I liked - not so good for the hotel.
The downside of it being remote is that you are dependent on the hotel for food and drink, both of which are overpriced and whilst delicious, we had better food from the hawker market at Krabi. There is literally nothing nearby - no shops or restaurants which you can walk to.
To get to Krabi, you need to once again take a tuk tuk (200 bht during the day and 300 bht at night) and take a long boat to Krabi (50 bht per person). If you want to arrange own transport to the hotel, take a longboat from Thara Pier in Krabi Town and a tuk tuk to the hotel. It is the only hotel there so all drivers know about it.
Would I recommend this hotel? Yes, if you want a complete break from everything. But be prepared to pay too much for relatively ok food and drink (although water is free!).
Also it is not possible to go in the sea - whilst the hotel is on a beach, the tide is either in next to the hotel or far out!
