It's easy to be mesmerized by this beautiful island get-away, with its gorgeous sea-side setting and outstanding architecture that seems to nestle comfortably into the hillside. The private villas are gorgeous hide-aways, each with their own infinity pool overlooking the ocean, four-poster bed and both indoor and outdoor showers, and accessed by the buggies that deliver you to your door. Although we arrived for three nights at the beginning of the rainy season, and experienced a fair amount of rain, it was easy to enjoy the atmosphere with a drink at the bar or a swim in the large and well-landscaped resort pool until the sun peaked through again. From the moment of our arrival until our departure, the staff was smiling and gracious, eager to ensure that our stay was pleasant and memorable. Even the rain couldn't dampen the smile on the servers at dinner or the enthusiastic singer and guitarist who entertained us each evening. And the food was excellent, particularly the buffet breakfasts. Also, we highly recommend the Thai massage provided by the spa -- one of the best we've ever experienced. The boat ride off the island was quite an adventure -- we got totally soaked, but it was all part of the fun. If you want to feel pampered, you can't go wrong by choosing this resort.
