Checking In

Upon arrival we were welcomed with refreshing towels and homemade tea. Immediately at the reception while doing the check-in, our receptionist Minji welcomed us to a stunning room. The kind staff took care of our suitcases and brought us to the cliff bungalow with an amazing view over the sea. From our balcony, we could enjoy the view of the palm trees, the Gulf of Thailand and Koh Samui island. The hotel is locally owned and employs more than 170 locals.
