We loved the privacy and remoteness of Foxhill. The traditional Malay houses were beautiful, all wood with four poster beds. The best one looks to be the Jasmine house, followed by Amin. Both with fantastic balconies you can sit out at night and listen to the sounds of the jungle. We took our 3 year old and could put her to bed and then sit outside and have a drink. I would recommend this to families, groups of friends or couples who want to get away from the main drag. If you are looking for a beach holiday I wouldn't book here for the entire stay, we booked 4 nights here and hired one of the Foxhill cars to see all the sights and then booked a hotel right on the beach for the remaining days which we felt was perfect. Driving on the island is really easy and safe, although the maps are a bit dodgy.
I can't finish the review without mentioning Zai (I'm not sure if that is correct), the new cook. His meals were divine, he would ask us at the start of the day what we wanted for dinner and would then proceed to buy everything fresh that day to serve that evening. The first meal was so delicious that we decided to eat in every night. The prices are really reasonable.
Tips to the hotel - the only downside for us was the toilet in the Amin house didn't work properly which became a bit tiresome, I would suggest that be fixed. We would also have loved to open up the windows at night rather than use the aircon but were worried about mosquitoes, it would be great if you had fly wire over the windows so you can do that
Otherwise a fantastic place and a great stay
