we stayed there for 4 nights after 3 nights in the jungle and immediatly appreciated the luxury of this resort. We had a room on thge top section that had a great view. The room was smelly however and we thought the smell would go after aerating the room. It didn't but we chose to stay because of the nice view. To get to the rooms there seems to be lot's of walking and steep climbing wherever your room is but that's ok there's golf carts available if you need them. They can be taken from the lobby and there's a phone in each building as well.
There's no beach close which was a disapointment but we were happy with the shuttle every hour to kamala beach. We loved that beach as we found it charming. We rented an umbrella and loundge chairs everyday for about 150 baht ( 3$ us) and the buttler took care of making sure we always had shade and dusted the sand off our chairs regularly . we felt he was looking after our stuff when we went in the warm calm sea or for a walk.They even get your drinks for you if you want ( 80 baht 1.20 us) You must have corn on the cob that is cooked fresh by a lady on the beach...yummy!!!
As for the restaurant resort the breakfast was fine and we had dinner there 3 nights. Food was always fresh and good but the service was hit and miss. One server stood out from all others and offered the type of service that is expected in a 4-5 stars resort. Tossawat was his name. I feel the other waiters would benefit from extra training from him as they didn't have a clue what they were doing most of the time. They were all nice and polite but we were laughing at their service skills because they were so bad. The duet signing in the evening created a romantic ambiance. The view from the restaurant and pools was to die for. if you buy drinks at their bars take note that the drinks are watered down...we did not appreciate this as the dring and cocktails were quite pricy there.
Overall we do recommend this place if your in the kamala area.
