We really loved this place. We stayed in a family villa with pool. Villa 609. Wow, we were not disappointed. The villa is the furthest away, and top of the hill (you can get a lift!) you get the most amazing view and extreme privacy!
I was shocked by the reasonable prices (having just stayed at the four seasons!)
The private pool was fantastic. The deck was large with table, chairs and sun bed. There was a bath on the deck (which everyone loved). Best of all was the view.... Wow.
We booked the speedboat from koh samui (just email the hotel to book). It took 30 minutes. They organised everything.
It rained for 2 days, but the kids (aged 6&5) watched DVDs in their amazing underground room and we ordered great room service. The room was so nice to stay in and chill out! We could also swim in the rain on outer deck.
We had a thai massage. Certainly an experience in beautiful settings. There is also a place on the beach for a smaller cost, but it was raining (pouring down) so used the hotel facilities.
The main pool was great, the beach was ok (bit gritty) and you could take out the canoe.
Best of all for food and the beach was the beach in the next cove. From the hotel beach, walk through the rock pathway. The sand is beautiful and there are beach restaurants and bars. Our favourite was the beach hut (about 3/4 way up- it's white). Happy hour cocktails were fab and dining on the beach was lovely!
Behind this bar is a small village with a convenience store, pharmacy, bars, rentals etc. really lovely. We got our laundry and ironing done (4 people) for 600baht. (Much cheaper than the hotel).
The staff at the hotel are delightful. I will be recommending and I'd love to return.
