This hotel is absolutely stunning, I especially love how interconnected it is with nature surrounding it. The trees, the little gardens around villas, all perfect. The service was somewhat inconsistent: We did not always get our room cleaned until a very late afternoon after we made a call and ask for it; we also had to ask three times for a baby crib, that was too small for our toddler, to be taken away. Everyone in the hotel was super nice though so in the end it did not matter too much. Two suggestions I would like to make though: 1) Water: the resort provides water in the rooms but if you want to order one during your meal, you can either pay horrendous money for a glass bottle, or a bit less for a very small PLASTIC bottle. Wouldn't it be possible to offer water from larger containers - cheaper and, manily, more environmentally friendly? 2) The water jetski: Now I know their rental is not operated by the resort. But the resort definitely should try and do something about it. They are super noisy and extremely dangerous. Most of the guests who rent the jetski fly with them top speed by the beach. If you go swimming when someone is renting the jetski, you have to be on the lookout non-stop to make sure you don't get killed. I had to stand up and waive a couple of times to make sure the person on the jetski saw me. I then noticed that most guests would go swimming to the sea only when there was noone renting the jetski. Otherwise it was simply too scary. Forget about swimming too far to the sea, forget about carefully floating and relaxing, forget about letting kids be on their own and forget about enjoying a quiet beach. There are no buoy signs in the sea that would prevent the jetski flying too near the beach. In my opinion it is just a matter of time before someone gets killed. Please, management, act now!

When booking our honeymoon I asked the travel agent for at least one place during our stay to be out of this world. He arranged the Naka Island as our final stop and he did not disappoint. We had a Seaview Pool Villa and it was out of this world. All the staff were so friendly and helpful from check-in to check-out. We were served by a fantastic girl named Gift in the restaurant on our 3 nights. She is a credit to the the Naka Island. Thanks Gift for making our stay so special. Breakfast was also great. Our Villa was simply incredible. We received afternoon tea to our room and it was beautiful. The staff could not do enough for you. It was the best experience we had during our stay in Thailand. Thank you and we highly recommend.

Had stay in the reason with a couple of friends for three night. A very fantastic stay over all, staff were professional, friendly and helpful with service that are beyond expectations. Arrival from the pier we already had Cake giving us a very warm welcome telling us the history of the island keeping us entertain while on the buggy. Stay on the villa which is so peaceful and quiet, bathroom come with a steam room which I did not expect it. Both restaurants serve reason price and nice food not forgetting Fern who kept us entertain while waiting for our food. Swimming pool just right facing the beach which you get the a beautiful view of the sunset, if you are look for a peaceful short getaway this island is the place for you I really love this place and will want to come back again. I also want to extend my special thanks to Khun Noi and the entire team in Naka Island for making our stay so exceptional. Till then see you again on my next stay Naka Island!

Fantastic resort in all manners. From the reception at the marina, the welcome gong, the private villa, the service and smiles from all the staff - everything perfect. We even stayed a day extra to enjoy this amazing resort.

We were so excited to stay at Naka, based on the reviews and the photos. We were so looking forward to a 5 star experience and Naka fell short. Granted everything is relative given past experiences at true 5 start hotels. Expecting a five star experience, after our six day stay we unfortunately left feeling disappointed. First the good things. The transfer via speedboat from the mainland to island was perfectly executed. The gentlemen on the boat provided fantastic service, always with a smile. We used the boat service several times during our stay to visit restaurants on the mainland. Every time the boat guys offered us water and cool towels. They ensured we had the contact information to arrange the transportation back. The night we left the resort to fly home it was pouring rain (serious down pour) and they went above and beyond to try and keep not only us dry, but our luggage too by wrapping it in giant plastic bags. Our villa was beautiful with a private pool and view of the sunset over the ocean. The villa was large with an indoor and outdoor shower and tub. We could not have been happier with our room and the excellent job housekeeping did in turning it over. Housekeeping took care of everything we needed. A+ housekeeping we really appreciate the great service you provided. We used our in villa pool every day, never visited the common pools during our stay because we had everything we needed in our villa. Our villa had beautiful sea views and faced directly west. The sun was always shining and we took advantage of the bluetooth speaker provided in the room to provide outside music. The pool guys were awesome and so friendly, they take great care of the pools (daily cleaning, balancing, etc). The resort offers daily activities, a nice variety of things to do. My husband attended a stretching class led by Joe. Joe from the recreation team was awesome, he remembered my husbands name and always went out of his way to come up and talk to us and check in. In fact he was the only employee that actually knew our names. We did utilize the spa, getting traditional Thai massages. The massage therapists did a fantastic job and the entire spa experience was great. Room service quickly became our go to when eating at Naka. Each time we ordered we received our food within thirty minutes and the delivery person was always very friendly and made sure we had everything we wanted. The food was served hot and you can get everything on the restaurant menu. Areas of opportunity for Naka: The restaurants experiences for us were mixed and boarder line not good. The food quality was good but the service and execution lacked consistency. So room service was the best option at the resort or the restaurant on the island (Naka Palm) as well as the restaurants off the island, such as The Gallery Restaurant & Bar are far better than eating at the hotel restaurants. If you get to breakfast early or not during a rush, breakfast can be a good experience. However several mornings the buffet was picked over, empty serving trays and the staff was frazzled. There are lots of workers and they are all friendly. However, I think it is how their workflow is structured and who does what. Our last morning we were seated by the assistant manger. He was so side tracked that he forgot to take our order. I flagged a server down who proceeded to get a phone call on his cell and walked away mid conversation. I received my order but my husband didn’t get a chance since the waiter took a call. Every morning there was issues, true 5 star resorts and other Starwood Luxury properties don’t have these issues. I explained I have an anaphylactic allergy to shellfish. Most hotels will make a note of allergies, but repeated we were brought prawn chips and another complimentary seafood item, they clearly did not understand or care of the seriousness of the allergy. We went to the Gallery twice, on our second visit the server remembered the allergy and took extra care to ensure there was no cross contamination. When we checked in and were escorted to our villa, they took our photo. The comment was made “we like to know our long term guests”. We have has other resorts do this and it always amazed us how the staff would great us by name or not have to ask our villa number. Not sure what Naka does with this. One of gals at guest services did remember our villa number only after a couple trips via the buggy. Overall the service was a disappointment at Naka. This is not to say the staff wasn’t friendly, everyone was very friendly and smiling, but they seemed to lack the vision or direction from management to truly pull a great experience together. I have no problem paying five star prices to have an outstanding experience, but when you pay five star prices and get underwhelmed it leaves a person quite disappointed. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick a different resort in the area.
