Me, my husband and my 9yr old son stayed in a garden villa from Jan 3 until Jan 10 2011 and we totally loved it. The villas are designed in traditional Thai style with vaulted ceilings and are huge and very well appointed. The lounge/kitchenette area, seperated from the bedroom with a heavy sliding door, was excellent, especially as my husband is a night owl and I like to get up early. The extra bed and breakfast for our son was free of charge (which is extremely rare). The bathroom was also huge and the spa had coloured underwater lights - very funny. It was great value for money and we plan to stay next January for 10 -12 nights. The villa is tastefully fitted out and although it was advertised as a 'garden villa' it faced the sea towards Ban Nam Ken, we couldn't have asked for more. The resort itself is huge, with attractive, well tended gardens and the villas are incredibly spaced out and not on top of each other like other resorts. The pool is 'to die for' - 1400 square meters meandering through the property and lined with frangipani trees, luckily for us they were in full flower, the fragrance adding to the ambiance. There is a large room off the lobby with 2 huge pool tables, a kid's corner and another room with 2 computers with high speed internet. I also used the gym everyday (to try to balance the food and drink!). The staff were absolutely fantastic and were great with our son, all the staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food is very good and reasonably priced. I have read other reviews which gave poor ratings for the buffet breakfast, to be honest, when I am at home I eat only porridge or meusli so I found the buffet breakfast to be very good with a great variety to choose from, a special mention must be made for the chocolate waffles - brilliant (hence the daily gym workout!). Kho Koh Khao island itself is an absolute gem, so quiet (I have never before seen an empty beach in Thailand in the high season) , we also loved the long- tail boat rides between the island and the mainland. The 3 restaurants at the harbour were great. We only 'discovered' the Coconut Palm restaurant on the second last night and were were kicking ourselves for not trying it earlier in our stay as the food was sublime; Duck in Orange sauce for $6 Australian. We went on to stay in Khao Lak for a further 10 nights and we hired a car twice and drove back to the island just to eat at the Coconut Palm. Do yourself a favour and go there for dinner. If you are looking for total relaxation and value for money you can't go past the Andaman Princess.
