a very good experience
open air bathroom - very nice huts - helpful stuff
a very good resort
huts are directly on the beach and there is a hanging bed in front of each hut
huts are comfortable
boat from lone island to phuket is free till 7:00 pm , and charged after 7:00 to 12:00 midnight
Food and beverages are nice but very expensive (Cane is for 80 baht - while in markets its for 14 baht - and in 4* hotels its for 30 baht !!) Be aware of that
We enjoyed our stay there , just be careful for insects , specially in the bathroom ;)

Quiet peaceful and relaxing. A real getaway
Remote location, water frontage , no hawkers, shops, tourers.
We went in the low season and were a little concerned to find we were the only guests. This soon became a highlight as we were allowed our privacy, treated like family and soon completely relaxed. No shops, no touts, no other tourists and yet just a short enjoyable boat ride to the mainland. Not what a family would enjoy, but perfect for couples, groups etc looking for a genuine relaxing resort.

Relaxing and very quiet place to stay
Nice and quiet although the nature made a lot of noise but it can't be helped =)
The first room has an ant nest so we got another room and it was ok. Bathroom is outside FYI.
A lot of bugs and some mosquitos also but it's all ok.
If you want to go to an island near Phuket but don't want to be to far away from the shopping of Phuket Town then this is your place. The sea is not very clear not on the North shore of this island at least so no snorkeling here.

Peaceful and Quiet
There were very little human traffic and it was extremely quiet here.
The place was very quiet for us and had little connection to the outside world, even close by Phuket. It was pretty much what we were looking for. Solitude.
If you need constant attention and shopping, this is not the place for you.
It's more of a place for doing nothing and being happy doing just that.

great location and service
excellent food, great service
an excellent resort and well organised and run. plenty of room in the garden view bungalow with a clean bathroom and plenty of soap,toilet rolls, and towels. the food was first class and cookie was happy to show you her kitchen. trips to the mainland about 20 minutes away were free and organised by reception.swimming pool was clean and cool with lounger beds and parasols. breakfast was really good and plentiful, with the fresh fruit an ideal last course to the meal. after the breakfast there is no need to have lunch. you must have the chicken sate with peanut sauce - it's enough for 2 persons.we were visited by wild monkeys. the sea is ideal at high tide but it is rocky and pebbley at low tide but use the swinging hammocks right on the beach to relax and watch the sunset.plenty of beautiful shells to collect on the beach, and lots of burrowing crabsto watch. meal portions are big and good value so one portion could feed 2 people.
Hotel Feature Tip:
mosquito nets cover the bed fully but take mosquito/tiger coils to keep mosquitos out of the bedroom and bathroom.if you intend to use the verandah in the evenings then put out the coils there.take beach shoes/flip flops to walk the beach at low tide

a few cottages on a lonely beach
quietness, peace, no cars, slow tourism
originally we wanted to stay for 3 days only, we ended up 8… because of amazingly friendly staff, the peace and quietness. we looked for sth off the track, but still not wilderness, because of our baby, in case sth happened...
beach is very shady and empty, food is excellent but overpriced. swimming no good cause at low tide too shallow. there are places to explore on the other side of island, with kaiak or trekking, we didn't make it, though ;)
there are some friendly local people on the island, they have a generator in the evening but, which disturbs the peace a little.
ferry with long boat a little adventurous, when waves and wind! bring mosquito repellent!

surrounded by great nature
If I get my rooms, it will be highest experience in my travel. Because of peack season, 3 private bungalows changed to 2 rooms in big villa, my sister need lie on added small bed in the room with parents. Double check with hotel before your booking if they can provide the rooms you want.
Anyway the lone island is so amazing quiet and surrounded by tropical trees, restaurant provide tasty breakfast and you can take free long tail boat trabsferring between island and chalong pier.Really like this small island, it is paradise!
The beach is not good, with too many stones. But the pool is very good, my baby enjoyed swimming in the pool. You should have mental preparations that many insects are around you. Maybe a frog will jump out when you open toilet seat, and if the food is left on floor ants squadrons will come.
Take free boat to Chalong pier, Kang Eyang@pier restaurant is very good. And you can buy everyday materials at 7-11 in pier.
