I came here based on a recommendation from a friend of mine. This is an awesome place to stay for a few days of relaxation. The bungalows are tasteful and feel upscale. There is a sense of privacy in the bungalows and the bathrooms are large and really nice. The restaurant was good for dinner and the breakfast was okay. Get the Thai pancakes for breakfast, you won't regret it!
The best part was the pool. When I was there it wasn't crowded and the area around the pool and resort is beautiful! There is a little cafe near the pool but they do not serve alcohol.
There is a 7-11 about a 5 minute walk away. To get to the beach / main area of Ao Nang you need to walk about 30 minutes or take the shuttle from the hotel. This wasn't a problem, since we were moving on to another place closer to the beach but you might want to consider the location if you want to be near the beach and restaurants.
