The hotel

Surrounded by lush vegetation, the Saii Phi Phi Island Village is located on a secluded beach along Loh Ba Gao Bay. The traditional-style bungalows with thatched roofs are scattered amongst the 70-acres of tropical gardens, some boasting a sublime sea view. Indulge yourself in the open-air Api Restaurant, which specialises in Thai and International cuisine in a variety of styles and the day starts with the generous buffet breakfast overlooking the beach. At sunset, enjoy the zinging cocktails at The Beach Grill & Chill. For a special romantic dinner, the Ruan Thai Restaurant up on the hillside offers Thai specialities on its candlelit terrace overlooking the 1000 sq m infinity pool and bay. There is a rejuvenating spa and for the more active, there is plenty to do with water sports, a 5-star PADI diving centre and excursions to Maya Bay and the neighbouring islands.

The location is lovely, quiet and private with its own long beach. Most of the facilities we used are in good condition. We loved the app-using idea used in the property which is quite convenient for guests. However, we have been told manning is the major problem here as things take way to long to get (unreasonably). And just right they were,… Read more
The location is lovely, quiet and private with its own long beach. Most of the facilities we used are in good condition. We loved the app-using idea used in the property which is quite convenient for guests. However, we have been told manning is the major problem here as things take way to long to get (unreasonably). And just right they were, staff are undertrained and extremely lack of hospitality to address your needs. We arrived at our room on the first day and there were quite a lot of ants partying on the sticky floor bathroom. We called the reception and the response was cold, assuming this might be quite normal to them. The second day we were out all day and told the team to fill up the room with water and change the towel. Awfully, nothing has happened. No one cares about our room, the staff again gave us a cold apology and it took almost 30 minutes for the housekeeper to arrive. We ordered a bucket of ice and it took an hour to come. What a great service. Lastly, I left the resort without bringing my device charger with me, have been texting the resort on Facebook since my departure day and no update until now. Not sure how long it's gonna take for them to find my charger, think I need to give this up. Thank god we stayed just only two nights otherwise it could be our nightmare trip to Phi Phi.  Read less

The staff are extremely rude and unaccommodating. They attempted to overcharge us multiple times and the cleanliness of the facilities was well below the standards of a 4-star hotel. Nothing about our stay here was easy or enjoyable and we wont be returning. Read less

The hotel is located on the other side of the island and faces a beautiful small bay. However, to start with, they provided no information regarding transfer - which was anyway not included, as we would have expected for a 4 star hotel completely isolated with no other means than boat to reach it. Even when we called the day before they did not inform us regarding the timing of the shared boat to get here from the main pier (there are 3 for 200 Bath per person) but only about their service to the boat (1200 Bath). We also remarked quite a rude, defensive staff attitude. We booked directly on the hotel website as we planned a possible early check-in but upon arrival they told us repeatedly that the hotel was full, even though it really did not seem the case. The hotel is in a prime location but completely isolated from everything. Not having a free shuttle service to the other side of the island you’re too isolated and to go there by boat you would spend around 40$. If we had full service it would have been even nice but with inflated prices of restaurants and services it felt excessive. Food average at the breakfast for a 4 star with low quality of food. This was the case also for the poor breakfast, with the coffee of poor quality NESCAFÉ level. Really?! Moreover it is easy to get lost in the streets behind the reception to find the room (and rooms are too far from the sea for no reason, with the resort half empty). The room is nice and clean. Only issue was the sink strangely designed, causing flooding in the bathroom. All is all, this is not worth and we would not recommend it. It’s pretentious, and the staff at the reception acts like managing a 400 rooms hotel in high season being direct and rude with the guests; quite the opposite experience we had at the other resorts in Thailand. Better to have a meal in the village behind the hotel where prices are more reasonable and quality is acceptable. Finally, they let guests manage everything with an app they ask to download. While it may be useful to call a buggie, you cannot ask people to request the room service every single day… Some people may want to relax and avoid planning or sticking to the phone during their holiday. We ended up leaving one day earlier than planned. Good note was the boat trip in the islands nearby that costed some 450$, and if you’re a group that’s definitively worth. Read less

Resort is immaculately clean with loads of amenities. Appreciated the beautiful forest spa and the incredible treatments I had there. Very highly recommended. The restaurants had lots of choices, great vibe overall. My favorite resort so far in my three week vacation to Thailand. I would definitely come back to this amazing resort. Five stars. Read less

A nice hotel located in Phi Phi however not 5 stars Pros - The best thing about this resort is that there is a local village behind with brilliant bars and restaurants. Nothing fancy, just nice food and drinks. We highly recommend the Buffalo Bar for drinks and Oasis and S Sun Day for dinner. - The hotel although large has plenty of space with a large private beach. - Albeit slightly dated, the villas offer a private room away from others Cons - The service was not always great. Everything has to be requested via an app. We had planned each day and booked a speedboat trip for one day however at 8pm the night before received a message through the app it was cancelled as there wasn’t enough people! This was disappointing. Instead we went to Mr Tuis in the village who organised a private speedboat for us for a much cheaper price (Highly recommend) - Again with service, things were slow. Room cleans were requested at 8am and by 4pm had not been completed - Overpriced - we didn’t eat food in the hotel as it was double the price of local restaurants - definitely explore elsewhere If staying here, become friends with the locals. They can organise everything for you including trips to the main town at a much cheaper price, it is also great to support local business after such a difficult time in covid 😃 Read less
