perfect place to relax quietly. it took a while to get to the resort (boat ride, then hotel pick-up from the other end of the island which took close to an hour) but it was worth it. the personal pool was perfect for the kids to play in all day, and when they got tired of swimming they could play...

I'm going to do a very honest review of Glow as I'm in the travel industry. They don't sell themselves as 5 star luxury but they do sell themselves as a bare-foot island experience and they deliver perfectly. The resort itself is older than the usual shiny, infinity pool counter parts but to be very honest your beach front villa,...

This hotel was our last stop on our Thailand adventure, and WOW! what a great way to end a holiday! It was quite a travel getting there, but once settled in at the hotel it was so worth it! The food served at the hotel is very well priced, and good quality, however not much variety for authentic Thai food....

This was our second time in Thailand. We were back in 2011. I have to say, that everything about this place was great, if you get rooms close to the sea.
