My family stayed here for a week to 'chill out' after time in Bangkok.
Every aspect of the hotel lived up to high expectations. The rooms in the new block and superbly furnished, have lovely sea views and effective air conditioning. They are exceptionally good value at the opening offer rate of BHT3,900 a night, including breakfast.
For me there are two reasons to stay here, over and above any other luxury beachfront resort. One being the spa which is exceptionally good with a whole range of treatments and the second being that you can snorkel right off the front at all states of the tide. The bay is known as shark bay and if you swim at the right time of day, you will see some decent sized specimens. Also five minutes in the hotel boat or kayak around the headland there is some really beautiful coral which is very accessible.
This place is remote and we never felt tempted to go into town because it was so nice and the service so good!
There are two outside restaurants if you want to stretch your legs. One is down a steep road to the sandy beach (watch out for falling coconuts) and the other 'Eagles View' is on the top of the hill right outside the hotel front door. Both are cheap and cheerful.
As other reviewers have noted it is a bit hilly, but we didnt find it an issue.
