my girlfriend and i had the good fortune to overnight at this establishment after arriving in khao lak without a booking and walking in the door. we were allocated a beautiful room on the 2nd floor with fabulous views over the pool and taking in the grounds, river, river mouth, and ocean. the resort exterior design has wonderful appeal with the roof structure being very thai, but the interior being very european, and of a high standard.the aircon worked well and the bed was firm but comfortable.the water pressure was a little low, but adequate. all the staff were most helpful. the breakfast menu was really comprehensive and the setting itself was great,with the dining area having extensive french doors that captured the sea breeze perfectly.
the beach is only a walk of a couple of minutes, and there is everything at the beach that you could want. (food, beverage, and massage etc), and it was all very reasonably priced. location wise it is perfect. the location creates an impression of isolated splendour and yet it is close enough to the many restaurants and bars etc, to walk if you choose.
i certainly intend to re-visit this place.
