This is a beautiful property, well-maintained, with an excellent and caring staff. I travelled alone, during Christmas week, and it was very quiet, mostly couples, very few children around and no large groups. Sometimes, it felt as though I were the only guest. I love this type of solitude, so it worked well for me. The rooms are beautifully appointed and I found that I wanted to spend time at the property. The spa services were wonderful. However, this is not a "spa" destination, if that is what you are seeking. It is a luxurious hotel with very good spa services and amenities.
As correctly reported by other reviewers, the hotel location is 15 to 20 minutes away from Tapae Gate in the center of the city. This can be sort of a pain to deal with. I worked around it by planning my general schedule well. It costs 400 Baht to get into the city by taxi (no tuk tuks or other transportation at the hotel), and a tuk tuk back to the hotel will cost 300 to 400 Baht (some drivers may not want to take you so far and will charge a premium, comparable to a taxi fare). Some drivers don't know where the resort is, so carry the name, address and phone number of the hotel with you (this includes when you arrive at the airport). The hotel has a brochure with a map on it. Carry it with you. The location worked well for me because I was able to balance play with rest in a very beautiful place.
