Experience the best of nature in grand intimacy
“Spent 4 nights here and wished we were there longer. Lovely location with great amenities. All staff so welcoming, cheerful and helpful. Stayed in one of the 9 Hornbills private tented villas that overlooks the resort from the hillside - so peaceful and private, with own pool. Complimentary activities provided including a delightful 3-hr boat trip around the limestone stacks in the sea, including two stop offs at beaches to snorkel and swim. Can’t recommend the resort enough.’
“We stayed at the Tended Villas on the hill, it was like being in heaven! The view was the most spectacular I ever seen from a hotel! Up there you are surrounded only by nature and silence, it is extremely peaceful. The tented villa looks like a luxury camping from African safaris. It has a beautiful garden and private pool, and a bath that can be outdoor if you open the tent curtain. Contemplating the birds, listen to nature, reading and relaxing... the best holidays ever! And on top of that you can exoperience a floating breakfast in your own private pool! :)’
“One of the most beautiful experience of our lives. It was just the greatest feeling waking up to amazing view of islands. The private butler service crew (special thanks to Sue, Fon, Rook & Priew) are wonderful and they will do almost anything you request. One day the staff went out of their way to prepare a dish (crabs), we had tried before in thailand and which we were craving for. It is paradise for people who just need a break to de-stress from their busy city lives.’
“We stayed in one of the tents for 7 nights and could not be happier with the choice. All expectations were exceeded: the view is incredible (the pictures do not lie, only it is a lot more beautiful in real life); the tents are spacious and clean and the aircon allows for good sleep; the pool was larger than expected and is perfect to cool down. Finally, the tents are perfect for couples: It is adults only and the area around a given tent cannot be seen from the outside (or the other tents). It is the perfect get-away for a relaxing vacation as a couple. To top things off, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. All in all we can highly recommend to stay here!’
“Had a fantastic time at Hornbills. Fabulous tents with jaw dropping views and wildlife. We were looked after brilliantly by Fon who was there to take us to and from the main hotel and made sure that we had all that we needed or wished for. Great food and cocktails. Boat trips out to the different islands were magical. Highly recommend. Tents rather than the main hotel was a fantastic luxury and great for honeymooners. Only tricky thing was the communication re transfers and arrivals etc, but as someone else has written - don't give up - it is all worth it when you get there.’
Boasting the most spectacular views of the famous limestone islands of the Koh Hong archipelago, often referred to as “The Best View in Asia”, the surrounding national park consists of more than 100 limestone islands that feature some of the most stunning deserted beaches, ready for you to explore.
