From start to finish, this place is awesome! Amazing hotel grounds (pools, amenities, views, kayaks, bicycles, talking birds, etc.), beautiful deserted beach, exceptional staff (the head guy, Neung, speaks great English and is extremely helpful--the rest of the staff are extremely kind and helpful). The beachfront villas are truly amazing, worth every penny (and a fantastic value). There are a few beachfront restaurants a few minutes south, lots of great stuff to explore nearby (caves, temples, waterfalls, none of which is too touristy). I've lived in Thailand for years and traveled extensively, and I am super impressed by this hotel and general location.
Suggestions to management: fix your location on Google maps (Google maps has incorrectly placed Sirarun about 1 km south from its true location, which is a BIG problem if you're relying on Google maps to get there!); install a bigger sign for visitors coming from the south (you can't miss the sign coming from the north, but the English letters on sign coming from the south literally minuscule); and the beach is wonderful, you might as well send a staff member to the beach each morning for 5 minutes to pick up any trash that may have washed up overnight.
Stupendous place, can't wait to return!!More
