Fantastic stay - our room was simply heavenly with incredible views of the beach. Highly recommend hiring a scooter and driving around the island, or using one of the free kayaks at the resort to paddle out into the endless blue! Meant to be rainy season when we went but barely trickled once.
Essentially have your own private beach, the water is always warm! An infinity pool to spend time relaxing and a bar to enjoy a few cheap cocktails. The owner and staff are incredibly friendly - on one day a soccer game was organised in which all the staff and the majority of guests joined in, fabulously uniting experience - and this was in off-season! Might be better to lodge in the on-season as their appears to be more activities held every night.
Only negative were the prices of the food and excursions - if you do a little research you can find much cheaper options around the island (snorkelling and kayaking tours, restaurants and massages). Also the price of hiring a taxi compared to hiring a scooter for the entire day is incomparable - if you have little experience with one don't worry, their easier than riding a push bike.
Also while off-season can be much cheaper, the island is almost asleep! Most of the restaurants we wanted to visit were closed so you may have to consider going when it's high season.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more less
