Stunning place, really good service, nice staff.
Didn't bother us, but currently building work there as not completely finished (ie, don't book there if that puts you off as there is noise)
Rooms were very clean and spacious, comfy. The finishings weren't 100% perfect, but again that didn't bother us. air con only from 6pm-6am (again no problem for us but others it may bother)
Unfortunately we had rain/pure cloud the whole time we were there.... but if it hadn't of been we would have taken use of the private beach and pool (gorgeous). Instead we made use of relaxing in the room, going out on the bike.
My boyfriend is fine riding a scooter so we got about easily, but it is out the way and a difficult bumpy track with uphills and down hills. So, if you don't want too much seclusion, then don't book there if you aren't confident on a bike. You can get a taxi service from the hotel but they only go at certain times and they do charge (other resorts have free taxi's)
If you get breakfast included you're in luck, really good.
Had a christmas party on xmas eve and were told it was free food for guests. but, it wasn't free...... we had to buy a t-shirt to attend that cose 250 Baht each. It was well worth it (buffet amazing) but we were a bit confused as to why they advertised and told us it was free!!
great place if you're not fussed about the little downfalls. best for couples who are happy riding scooters in my opinion, or family's who want to relax on the beach pool.
Definitely worth it and would love the budget to stay in that room again!! (stayed in a superior room with sea view, though trees in the way!!)
