Stayed for 6 nights in low season. Booked this after seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Did not realise it was a Boutique Hotel with only 38 rooms and villa’s when booking and booked because we liked the sound of it being nestled in the jungle yet had easy access to the beach. There was a great pool and being low-season travellers we virtually had the place to ourselves. This said, I’m sure with only 38 rooms you would not struggle to get a sun-bed or space by the pool in high season. The town is only 10 minutes walk & you can get on a tuk-tuk for 50bhts per person, therefore a ride to town and back is 200bhts for 2 people. The hotel hires mopeds for 250bhts per 24 hours, so this is a no brainer and we hired the moped instead. The hotel is on the South side of the village and my initial thoughts were that it may be slightly away from immediate amenities, however this is not the case and enjoys both a quiet location within easy reach of village life & amenities.
We stayed in a room, which was part of a block of 4 with grass roof. Room was large with sea-view balcony & had a large bathroom with both walk in shower and bathtub. The shutters by the bathtub opened onto to room so you could enjoy the view from beyond the balcony. Toiletries were included. There was free wifi throughout the hotel rights down to the beach. In room safe, aircon, fridge, flat screen TV, kettle etc. Basically everything you would need for a decent stay, complete with complimentary water everyday.
We loved the fact that the accommodation was nestled in the jungle and you were surrounded by trees and shrubs and the noise of the insects and frogs at night was amazing.
The pool area and bar were immaculate and the sun beds were on an area covered by palm trees before you stepped onto the beach.
Breakfast buffet was good and plentiful. The resort is not new and blends into the surrounding in such a way you hardly notice the other guest accommodation.
Highly recommend and would not hesitate to re-book.
