I was here for a company training just last month, and i must say i was blown away by how beautiful this resort is. The rooms were spacious and the were a couple of pools there that you could lounge around in.
After confirmation of the room, the hotel contacted me and organised Airport pick up for me (THB 1,100). The journey from airport to hotel took about 45 mins. Upon arrival, the check in process took slightly longer than it normally should, but the hotel was open for barely a month, so i guess that was forgivable.
I was given the seaview room, and i loved how spacious the room and balcony were.
The hotel had 2 pools, one of which was just by the bar which would be great for lazing around (if i wasnt here for work), the other one just in front of my room. There seem to be some groundfloor loft units with a lap pool right in front of it (connected to other units)..those look interesting and i may come again and try staying that room if possible.
The beach though was in a cove, so it was pretty quiet and still, especially during the low tide. The rainy season also didnt help with getting out too often...
The buffet lunch was pretty good, and i had pizza for dinner (mushroom with truffle oil) which was delicious.
I would really recommend this place as a great romantic & relaxed getaway, and would probably come with my wife the next time to fully enjoy this place.
