This was so relaxing. We stayed for 3 nights in a beachside cottage with a fantastic view of the beach from the verandah. It was so peaceful and the noise of the waves on the beach through the night was an aid to sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful, food good without being spectacular, no bar but beer...

Thapoven is real home for me, loving dearly all the staff. They are the best people you could ever meet , honest, warm, loving, devoted. Absolutely the best! They do their best to make you happy, in all way possible. The location, the treatments, the yoga teacher, all couldn't be better.
