This is the place to come to if you want a great hotel but without the hefty price tag and unnecessary stiffness that comes with the super deluxe hotels. Within 5 minutes' drive of the airport and with its own private beach, I don't think you can go wrong with this hotel. Don't expect 5 star service and facilities, but do expect a nice, relaxing holiday with a great beach and pool and a great breakfast selection. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms but it was fine for our needs, if a little noisy because of its proximity to the main road leading into Chaweng!
The one thing that I really didn't like was that the reception staff constantly try to get you to attend a 90-minute presentation for the Anantara Vacation Club (timeshare type thing), even after you repeatedly say no. That almost ruined our stay.
If we come back to KS we would certainly think about coming back to this hotel, as long as they promise not to try to sell us any timeshares!
