It's actually not that easy to describe this place. We stayed in villa 2 and 4, and while the former is lovely and exactly as described in the photos, villa 4 just blows your socks off. It is the most beautiful space I've ever stayed in and I pondered about not leaving and waiting for them to throw me out by force. The views, the jungle in the bathroom, the yoga sala where you can have your breakfasts delivered to, the round living room with it's funky round sofa, the second outdoor shower overlooking the sea, and then the totally secluded round infinity pool pool...so many highlights. No one can see you apart from the longtail boat operators out at sea and they don't care. The villas are designed around nature and yes, you will see some local creatures if you're lucky. Squirrels, crabs, frogs, birds, ants, they all belong there and I envy them because they on't have to leave.
Viewpoint is not a 5 star resort, so people who think they should get a whole luxury package will be disappointed, but it offers stunningly designed accommodation and very friendly and competent service. The restaurant is lovely, newly built just by the sea, and the food is excellent. My only criticism is that the small beach by the resort could do with a bit of a make over.
We hope to come back soon.
