The resort was absolutely beautiful! I can't say enough about how friendly the staff were too. Our room was very nice, with a view of the ocean where we could watch the sunset every night. The pool area is great, as is the beach. Highly recommend this resort for a great place to relax and rejuvenate! The food was quite pricey. The buffet is well worth it but the quality/portion sizes of the pool-side food were not worth the price.
i loved this hotel. the satff is excellent always smiling, the island is beautiful, the rooms very comfortable, the location is perfect.breakfast is good
Some very good and individual excursions.
The main thing for me was a privacy. And i did get for 101%. The hotel have 40 bungalows and only 5 of them was booked. We were alone with my lady on the breakfast, dinner.. Its seems that all the hotel teritory and stuff was just for two of us. That was what i come to this island for. Rooms are nice, but on the pictures they looks a bit bigger. Shower and terrace are very stylish and neat. Try some local restaraunts for the locals - the food is just great, noodels, rice and everything. Do not fear to eat in the villages outside the hotel its safety and a great expirience of a real local food and cost only 30 BAT\dish. Hightly recomended ) Forget about sea swiming near the hotel, the beach depends too much of a tide and the water is yellow. No blue lagoons and so on. But the have a fantastic pool and 300 BAT\day scooters. Discover the island and 5 good beaches in 10-20 minutes drive and you will get a personal 300 - 1000 meters beach ;-) Internet cost a 120 BAT\hour and its a dialup. You will spend 10 minutes to send 1 letter ;-) Just forget about the rest of the world and your doings ))
This resort is a truly getaway resort. If you are looking for places to relax in peace and quiet, then this is the one. I didn't feel like I stay by the beach, I felt like I stay in the mountain. There're trees and green everywhere. I love the wooden decoration and atmosphere so much. Staffs were very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and tidy. Food was average, not plenty of choices but clean and delicious. I tried the spa when it first opened, and it's amazing! The swimming pool is huge and edgeless to the sea and sky!. Overall, it was really worth the value. I will absolutely stay there again. There were only couple of things that they can improve, they told me that they don't have room service for meals. They likes customers to go to the restaurant; however, I got room services couple of times because I was there during green season and they were not too busy. Additionally, I was there during green season, therefore, the breakfast have to order and not many choices. That's acceptable for me. Moreover, there were some local animals that came with the forest and stay in your bungalow, like small house lizard that make noises from time to time and small bugs. Lastly, if you are looking for the resort located next to the beautiful beach that you can just jump in anytime, then this is not the one because the tide gets very high.
The rooms were great just like the the pictures. The restaurant was too expensive for what they had on offer and the staff need to be more trained on customer service. The location is remote so be prepared to just stay at the hotel unless you want to hire a motorbike.
We like the pool. Wonderful people and service. The bungalow was like magic. The beach was no good.
The hotel, bungalows, the location, the staff, everything was perfect and they really looked after us during our stay in every aspect. Hotel highly recommended if you are looking to scape from the typical tourist areas in Phuket and rest properly while enjoying Thailand. Really enjoyed our time over there and will definetly come back! Thanks for everything The weak points are: 1. when the tide goes out/comes in, you cannot really enjoy the beach, though the swimming pool overlooking the beach is great!. 2. There is just one restaurant which has everything from pizzas, sandwiches, thai food, etc...
The pool was indeed great! Staff was also very very nice and courteous. Food for dinner was a bit pricey compared to other places we've been, but really good. We rented a motorbike for a few days and enjoyed a lot exploring the island. It is really calm place, no night life. It depends of course what one is looking for. Bungalow was comfortable and cosy. The only thing is that there is no real beach, where you could enjoy swimming close to the hotel. However you can find secluded beaches a bit further if you rent a motorbike. If there would be a free shuttle service organized by the hotel at least a few times a day to the nearest beach, it would be just perfect place to stay.
Our stay was in a garden villa room not too far from the beach down a short ramp and stepped slope. The resort location is very beautiful and clean right on the beach with some nice views in the near to far range. We made plenty of use of the pools which are very nice. The main pool is very big but has shallow areas up to about the knees. We did go into the clean, clear warm sea sea but were mostly as the pool because we had a toddler with us. Food on the resort was fine but not too much more than nearby. You have good food, store and massage options just across the road from the resort entrance. The room was maybe a bit worn but nothing to really write about. Nice and big with air conditioning. Breakfast is big and plentiful with both western and eastern choices. A lot is the same food day to day but with some variation. If you want to do any of the resort activities make sure you book as otherwise they are not held. Overall I felt it was excellent price and value at the Beyond Resort Krabi. If I had to be picky I would say the following were things that let the resort down: More staff at the beach and restaurant. Could use a remote button ordering system allowing one to call for service from the lounge chair to order whatever to drink and eat. I saw this at another resort and really felt luxury, Also probably increased my resort spend! Restaurant staff wore football jerseys, all the same. I presume this is that somehow the hotel owners are involved withe the team on the jersey, I forgot to ask. The resort is labelled Kata Group in a lot of places. This is the owner of the resort but the way is is on different logos and places it negates the idea and dream of the resort. Seeing the name kept making me think I was staying at an office building and not the beautiful resort it truly is.
From the villa we had a beautiful view of the beach and surrounding waters and very colorful sunrises The food was average at best and mosquitos were a real problem
This is a very unique place for taking a break from everything. We have never experienced such a beautiful resort before. The villas are open and very nicely decorated. You fall asleep with the sound of the sea and nature and you wake up with the same. That's fantastic. The view is breathtaking. It was a pity that we only stayed three nights but we will definitely come back.
From welcome off the boat to departure it was a wonderful experience. The view is breathtakingly beautiful, the villas are fun + close to nature and the staff is charming. The massages are heavenly - so once adapted that there is no aircon to sleep, this is heaven on earth. Nothing negative to say.
relaxed ate rode bikes swam pampered and enjoyed everything
Wonderful hotel, beautiful location. One of the best hotel we have stayed in Thailand. The staff is very kind and the tours are very well organised. We'll definitively go there again.
Great place to relax and within easy reach of beautiful un-inhabited islands.
Our stay here was heaven on earth. The staff was helpfull and friendly. You could take the bikes for free which was a great opportunity to explore the island. The houses had a lot of privacy and the fan was sufficient to lower the heat during the night. Great place to stay and we recommend it to everyone... If we have some remarks it will be the prices for the sodas/drinks, double prices comapared with all the other accommadations in which we stayed during our trip. Also the prices for the day trips arranged by the resort are overpriced. In case you arrange day trips by the locals in their boats visiting the surrond islands etc.you save up 80%! Going to Krabi you can save a lot of money in case you take the local ferry ( 100 BTH instead of 500 BTH a person). In the harbor of Krabi a local bus is waiting for you, take this one and you again save up 75%!
Idyllic location, child friendly, great staff, excellent cuisine well priced. Could do with its own peir and speedboat option instead of the longtail boat especially for transfers.
I would hate to say too many things about this resort because I don't want to see it get too busy. It is phenomenal though. The staff are super friendly and very eager to please. There is no air conditioning in the rooms since you have your own open air hut, but with ceiling fans and the cool shade of palm trees the temperature was perfect. If you'd like an open air, hidden, exclusive, high end resort this is the place for you. The only thing I was not aware of is that I should have planned our flights to arrive in Phuket by 2-3pm local time. That way I would have had enough time to take a taxi to the pier and catch the ferry to the island. We stayed in Phuket which was nice and caught the first ferry the next morning. Well worth the wait.
The setting was remarkably beautiful, and the resort was quiet and well maintained. The beach is in a particularly nice location -- probably the best along that strip. Rooms were comfortable in general, and the beds quite nice. I also liked the outdoor showers. The motorbikes available were fun, and very reasonably priced. The food was bland and preparation not as interesting as it could be. Perhaps a more limited -- but more flavorful -- menu would be possible. Lighting in the bedrooms could be better (for reading), and an option for air conditioning in some rooms might be helpful. Help with travel arrangements -- especially given the location-- could be better, and the price quoted seemed prohibitive (4 times our actual cost when we arranged it ourself).
