The island is made accessible considering how remote it is. We can't expect such a small and intimate place to have an airport on it, now can we? It would then no longer be private, right...
Each beautiful modern bungalow is its own mini paradise.
The rooms and pool and restaurant are simple and elegant, and therefore it is possible to keep everything immaculate. The staff were outstanding. I love not being plagued Western Style with sales. I love asking for what I want, and getting it, not being bothered and interrupted all the time with drink requests. Really, getting up to get such affordable drinks with glass and ice at such a BEAUTIFUL location, is an absolute treat. The wide open restaurant feet away from the sea. The delicious food at prices that are so low. The super simple walkways to each private bungalow. It makes me feel bad to read reviews by people who, well, where do you think you are travelling to? If you think you belong at this resort, than you do. Reminds me of the feeling and atmosphere 20 years ago when I first went to Koh Chang. Except, way higher end. To get this vibe, these rooms, anywhere else in the world, would cost double the price. And yes, there is shallow water and very attractive black rock. Note this before you go and enjoy the lovely pool. Rent scooters or the golf cart to visit beaches. Please everyone, the comments on trip advisor can really affect a persons life, and business. Please lets all take into account where we are talking about and for example not fault remote islands for intermittent wireless. And just because a server isn't a grinning fool doesn't mean he doesn't want to help you.
We really really loved this resort and having been there last February, we are going again this November. All the way to Thailand just to go to Plubpla. It's that quiet, that private, that perfect. Make sure to contact me if you have specific questions. I know how important our choices are.
