* try its massage service: a discrete location by the ocean with tall trees, you can hear the waves & bird chirping, the massage itself (i tried its signature service, $25/75 minutes) is so much better than the Thai massage I tried in Chiang Mai!
* it is 15 mins walk down (and 20 minutes walk up) from D'mall, the center of the white beach. so you can easily access tons of restaurants & shopping there.
* during the low tide, you can find so many sea stars in the beach. water there not ideal for swimming, though, because of the kite surfers and sea urchins. go to White Sand instead
* I stayed in Shangri-la for one night before moving here. certainly Shangri-la is super nice but this place is great value for money (at about 1/3 the price of Shangri-la).
