The hardest reviews to write are the ones for hotels that were everything you could have wanted and more because adjectives to describe perfection are limited and overused. This is precisely the case with C&N Resort. In all my travels throughout Thailand, this was the one destination I had not planned to go to. It was a mistake, but one I have had the luck to be extremely glad I made. If you're after a relaxing, 5-star getaway with excellently prepared fresh food grown on the premises, friendly service that goes over and above the call of duty, quiet and clean surroundings and air conditioned beach huts on unspoilt fine white sandy beaches (that are swept by hotel staff in the morning!), then I cannot recommend C&N highly enough.
Every facility offered was of the best standard, the huts were simple but stylish, safe and secure with all mod-cons necessary. No mini-bar, but believe me, you won't need it. There's an excellent little bamboo restaurant and bar virtually next door on the beach if you want a change of scenery, where Man will juggle with fire for you between serving your meal of BBQ red snapper and rice and I hear the Barracuda is sublime. The hotel restaurant serves excellent dishes and I took to asking the waitress to just bring whatever she recommended for the night. Their signature cocktail, the C&N Sunset is also pretty sensational. But be prepared to relax! It's a small island, not much going on unless you like to walk (a scooter will take you 'round the entire island in a day). This is no party island. It's for grown-ups who enjoy peace and quiet in a sophisticated setting. If I could have extended my visit and stayed here for the entire month I would have been one perfectly content woman.
GO - before the hordes ruin the heavenly tranquility!
Taxi from the north of Phuket (estimate +/- 68km) cost B1600. Highway 44 to Nam Kem Harbour (past Khao Lak) +/- 1.5 - 2hrs from Phuket airport.
From pier take ferry (B20/B120) or long-tail (B20) to Kho Khao Island. either hire a scooter or take an island Tuk Tuk.
Follow main road until you see signs for C&N Beach Resort
I ticked 'Very Good' for the Fitness Centre below, but there it was a mistake and you can't seem to undo it. There is no Fitness Centre, however, you can walk on the beach for miles and that is excellent.
