This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Really a great Resort. Absolutely lovely atmosphere. Great designed with lots of metal and wood. Even we had the cheapest room category, it was one of the nicest rooms we had. Very big, two washing tables, a shower with mirror on the ceiling and a very comfortable bed. Water bowl with aromatic oil was heated up every evening from the turn down service. Breakfast absolutely delicious. Everything you need. Especially the variety of nuts for your muesli you don't find everywhere. Fresh fruits and juices. Three pools, two of them for adults ( kids from 14 / 16 years ) the black ginger restaurant should be visited. Very nice atmosphere. We liked the "Rebar" for after dinner drinks. Happy hour from 9-10 pm! Hotel is just a few seconds walk from the beach, as well as to the main road with lot of restaurants and massage studios. Highly recommended hotel.

Review:   On the positive side, the rooms were unique and stylish which makes you feel like you are in an exotic place. Also loved that they have two adult-only pools - really enjoyed pool 2 with its swim up bar and great spots to lounge in the water. Coqoon Spa was wonderful - be sure to look for specials at the concierge. Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast. On the not so positive side, there was some construction noise due to new hotel going up next door, but wasn't overly intrusive. I don't think we ever figured out how to make the lights in our room work the way we needed them to. The switches were in the oddest places and the bathroom were a bit too dim. Finally, the industrial tin mining decor will probably take some getting used to. In some areas it seemed a bit over the top. Overall we enjoyed our stay here. We will probably stay here when we visit Phuket again.

Review:   All around a wonderful experience. Great people, great service and amazing facilities. Surrounding area seems dodgy at best. Spent almost all of our time at hotel. Beware of visit to Tiger enclosure. Very expensive and very exploitive of animals. No attempt to present them naturally.

Review:   First impressions of the hotel was strange decor going on with the Steam Punk/Tin mine theme. However once you explore the resort you get over that strange theme and quickly learn to enjoy the quirkiness. The place is immense with 3 fantastic pools, and a reasonable choice of restaurants. I didn’t expect the hotel to be so close to the airport, and to that I think the beach suffered. If you’re not a beach person then this is a fine place. However if you are, it’s a real disappointment to see such a dirty, poorly maintained beach just in front the resort. It’s a fabulous place for families, has great facilities and great service. No fifth star because of the poor lighting, poor signage and not very nice beach.

Review:   A nice resort ideal for families. The nearby beach is beautiful with a lot of local restaurants and bars. Staff and breakfast fantastic a contemporary feel but lacking soul, very much a large "carribean-style" resort.
