We stayed for around a week over the Christmas period and had an amazing time. We loved the location - it was incredibly scenic, secluded, private and at the same time provides easy access to a local beach and a local t village, Chalock Baan Kao. The standard of the accommodation in our villa was first class, stylish and functional. The staff were all very helpful and friendly allowing us to get by without any Thai.
The restaurant is similarly excellent Thai fusion fare (local fresh crab tacos and lobster pad Thai were memorable) and I would say fairly priced for the standard, albeit being at the upper end of the market in Thailand. We ate there roughly half the time, and in Chalok Baan Koa for the remainder (which has plenty of options for all budgets). The restaurant is down close to sea level, most of the accommodation is elevated on the hill side so restaurant access is via a couple of flights of steps through pleasant jungle foliage. The path is illuminated at night but we found a torch (provided in our room) was also sensible.
The local village, is a 10 min stroll along the coast. Part of the walk is across a beach which (like a lot of beaches) is tidal. At high tide it has a fairly idyllic toes-in-the-water aspect but it was always easily passable in my experience.
We will very likely be heading back.
