I came across this in one of the hotel booking sites but there were no reviews on trip advisor. However we took a chance and it far exceeded expectations. It has a cool, stylish vibe, and even though only open for a few weeks, the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful and the service spot on.
We had the enormous (2 bedroomed) pool suite but we poked into the other rooms and they are all very generously sized and all are tremendously good value.
This is not your typical Khao Lak resort with ersatz traditional villas. It is urban chic - think Metropolitan Hotel, Bangkok or the Chedi, Chiang Mai. The room designs are amazing, very open in the modern style, with sofas on the balconies, big beds that are the most comfortable I have ever had in a hotel, with lovely linen, pillows and towels. Real attention to detail everywhere.
I expect great things of this hotel: get in quick while you can!
There are two restaurants, a Thai one and an Italian (Amici) and you could do no better than eat in these all the time. However there are other reasonable restaurants close by.
The only downside is that it is not right on the beach - if that is important to you. The staff will run you down there in a buggy, but anyway it's only a 5 min walk.
A lovely swimming pool and some of the rooms have vast jacuzzis attached to them.
Very good free wifi.
