This must be one of the quietest hotels I have ever been to. but if you were going to stay too long it might be overwhelming. The staff do everything then go another mile to keep you pampered. The villas are perfect and very spacious. We had a beach front one with its own pool. The food is good but it is pricey and the drinks are very expensive about eight times the price down the long dusty road to the village.
The road through the island is very rough and it is about 4 miles to the small village and its restaurants. Taxis can be had for 500 baht to take up about ten people each way (back of pick up - no safety!). It is a very hard walk but due to the nature of the road it is nearly as quick! I believe the only restaurants are at the village, as is a a lot of other activities so it is well worth the trip.
There is however little to do at the hotel they do have hobby cats and will organise tours snorkeling etc which are not the cheapest
There is no all day bar but the drinks from room service which covers the beach are the same price. The sunset bar has views to die for!
the free Wi fi covers the whole of the resort down to the beach. unfortunately wind conditions were not ideal when we were there which kept the sea rough and this made it quite murky and the noise in the beachfront rooms will take a couple of days getting used too with the rollers coming in all night
Very good for a relaxing after a long haul flight before going on for more acttivity elsewhere, and I would think it would be hard to beat for a honeymoon
