This place has the most marvellous air of calm, and is just the spot for some rest and relaxation after travelling around, or just a bit of indulgence.
The resort only has 30 rooms (I think) 8 beachfront bungalows, another 6 behind them and then 16 more rooms set in the gardens. We had a beachfront bungalow room and it was great to lie in bed or on our terrace with a full view of the sea. The room was huge, with a separate dressing area, large indoor shower room and a garden spa bath and outdoor shower through doors to the rear. The pleasure of tea in the spa bath after a long lazy day is very memorable.
Although the rooms are not inexpensive everything else is. The restaurant is very good ( especially the Thursday evening buffet) Drinks - including cocktails - are very reasonably priced and you can drink the contents of the mini bar without extending your mortgage.
The service here is outstanding, friendly and unobtrusive.
I can't understand some of the reviews commenting on the lack of beach. You can reach the beach at either end of the frontage and the hotel has a large number of sun loungers up on sand just behind the "promenade" wall. You can swim when the tide is in from the steps. The sea was calm and very warm when we visited and although the pool is good too there is something special about swimming in the sea.
Don't go to Khao Lak for nightlife - there doesn't seem to be any, Go to experience the blissful charm, tasteful elegance and attentive service at Chongfah.
