With a lovely beach right across a, not very wide and not very busy road (more of a beach path).
I had some reservations after reading the review saying that the resort had bad food, was over a road from the beach and taxi's were expensive. The food in the restaurant with both the International and Thai menu was so good that I was excited at every mealtime to try something else. We went to Black and Whites down the road and into Khao Lak and a few other resorts for food, but with Haadson atmosphere, setting and food was top notch and normal Thai prices.
We arrived at midnight they collected us from the airport and were waiting up with a lovely welcome for us. The lanterns in the trees were so beautiful and the peaceful setting meant we relaxed immediately.
We had a baby (toddling) and a 4 year old who both enjoyed it immensely. We never felt like we had to be quiet as all the staff and guests were really friendly and got to know our children, & played with them. The pool was perfect for us, beautiful setting and very shallow in shallow end, our little ones could easily paddle about.
The rooms were big enough for a cot and a small bed, looked good and worked well with the football pitch sized garden out from (with no steps) for our little ones to run around and explore the massive plants. We enjoyed cocktails on our patio once the little ones were in bed and it was lovely to sit and look out onto the gardens.
The Corner Sala (outdoor bit of the spa) worked well for us rather than the corner spa, we could book in last minute for a half hour back and head massage for only 250B
Taxis were 350-400 one way to Khao Lak and were easy to find.
Totally different feel to the rest of Khao Lak and Phuket. We will be back.
