So we arrived on the 23rd, just before Christmas. We wanted to stay somewhere extra special for a few days over Christmas. We were collected from the port which was fantastic, I think the trip from port to the hotel took about 20 minutes.
We stayed in a Castaway beach front villa which was beautiful, small, had breathtaking views and was nothing less than we had wished for.
The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious, try to go early so you can get a nice booth right on the beach looking out to Shark Bay.
The service was impeccable. Friendly staff, they couldn't do enough to help. Our bags were lost on the way to Thailand. We were given a tracking number by the airline and Haad Tien followed up all the time for us, and even collected them for us free of charge from the port on Christmas Day without us even requesting it.
The beach bar is also very convenient with delicious cocktails and simple food for lunch. The resort is expensive in comparison to the food and drink in nearby Sairee Beach, but I suppose that is to be expected, and is still "cheap" vs home.
If you are looking for a place that offers a luxurious experience, with amazing surroundings, 20 minutes by taxi from Sairee Beach where the main night life is located then this is the perfect spot.
