Great service
It was perfect and nice. The only thing to comment is the turist comming in with boats every day to see the island on the beach and They where very loud, even made the beach dirty. That was not relaxing. But the resort was amazing and great service.

Perfect Asian getaway
I am reluctant to give a good rating as I want to keep the Racha to ourselves! Wonderful place. Complete revitalisation. Really friendly and helpful staff. Lovely food and spa. Perfect for our wedding anniversary.
