We stayed here for 10 nights at the end of January/early February and were hugely satisfied with our choice. I spent a long time looking for accomodation for my holiday, and am certain we could not have found a place that was as good as this in terms of value for money.
Whilst being off the beach, and up a big hill, the whole point of this resort is enjoying the stunning views from across the resort of the sea and the An Thong Marine Park. The sunsets are the best i have seen in Thailand. It is dissapointing to read a few of the negative reviews, as everything about our stay was positive. The friendly service from Adam and his team was a welcome difference to a lot of the sulking, rude service you get in the a lot of resorts in Thailand. In particular we were extremley grateful at being able to switch to a better seaview room for our last 6 nights. If staying in a couple i would strongly reccomend the studio room in the Rose building, the views from the balcony are incredible.
My tip for anyone staying here is to rent a scooter (200 baht per day) and explore the island, if you are not the scooter type, and would prefer two weeks on a beach, then possibly this resort is not for you, nonetheless the pool (that is never busy) has incredible views and should satisfy people wanting peace & quiet.
If we had stayed on one of the beach resorts we probably would not have hired the scooter, which hugely restricts your ability to explore all the different places in Koh Phangnan. There are plenty of beaches and restaurants a 5 minute scooter ride away, and with Adam's advice we visited a number of different restaurants that otherwise without the scooter we would never have come across. The fisherman's restaurant in Baan Tai was a particular favourite.
Overall, a great trip and gutted to have not been able to stay for longer, would definitely reccomend to friends and family.
