First: this is ON the island of Ko Samet, NOT on Rayong (mainland), therefore the map is wrong, I hope TA can correct this. If you use Google Map, you'll see exactly where it is: north west of the island, the last resort where you can actually see the sunset.
Second: the professional photo that looks to be taken from a cliff doesn't belong to this resort, other photos are quite accurate.
We had a very nice and professional welcome, the staff was very attentive from the reception to the room to the porter. Our room had a view on the garden, very zen and agreeable atmosphere. The open-sky shower is a fun touch. The room had fresh fruits, and was equipped with umbrella & flash light. In the bathroom, 3 towels each.
The restaurant was very good, we loved the curry with duck and lychees among other dishes. The prices are the same as other good restaurants on the island (Tubtim, Samed Villa) at the exception of the whole sea-bass (x2,5) or the wine (ridiculously priced at $60 to $400 a bottle!). About 1,000 bath for 2, tip included.
When we left, we had to go before breakfast time. The staff very efficiently prepared us two big boxes each. This was very unexpected and kind.
Anything wrong? Well, it is the very last resort so not too much choice to eat anywhere else by foot. Then again taxis are only 150 bath ($5) to downtown.
