We stayed here for 3 nights and could easily have changed our trip and stayed here for the whole time!! I can't say it's the best in the area as we only stayed here and it's out first time in Koh Phangan however I can't imagine any where better!!
We stayed in the bird of paradise which is like a tree house....the room was beautiful with great views of the sea and a lovely little seating area.
The beach is miles away from other beaches you'll find in Koh Samui - private, clean...PERFECT! They provide beach towels for you and there are also a few hammocks dotted around too.
The food in the hotel is gorgeous, some of the best we had whilst in Thailand, I recommend the massaman curry! Breakfast was simple. nothing ground breaking - fresh fruit, eggs, toast and jam but for us it was just right.
If you want to be in the thick of it, don't stay here! It's a perfect honeymoon location. Thong Sala is a short 5 min taxi ride away which the hotel can arrange (this ensured that we werent ripped off too! 80bht is standard for one way each) or you can walk along the beach its about 1.5km and took us around 20/30 mins.
The family who run this resort are lovely - very welcoming and helpful!
