My wife and I wanted somewhere to relax, unwind and away from the "maddening crowds". This was the place. We had a Premium beachfront unit closest to the "Little Tiger Restaurant" up on the hill above the beach. We stayed 8 nights. Experienced all the 4 restaurants in the resort. Multi visits to La Gondola Italian anf the Chang Thai restaurants.. great food & service. Our unit was also the best! Large, clean and peaceful. Balcony towards the beach and a balcony to the large central pool with a swim bar. The staff got to know us after a few days and would fuss to ensure our breakfast preferences were catered for.. especially the coffee! We went into Patong by the Resort's shuttle service for a day to experience the markets, noise and the crowds. We caught up with some friends who stayed in Patong and we were very glad to cath the bus back to our serenity. We even went to Phuket for the day & experienced the night markets and roadside food stalls. Bad move as I got sick for the next few days. We also enjoyed the day trip to Phang-nga & Bond Island on a 'June Bahtra' sailing vessel and a afternoon Siam Safari Elephant trek, all arranged from the Resort and a very competitive price.
The main thing was that we both enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, got rejuvenated and look forward to getting back there.
The cocktail lounges and internet/library were also a good way to communicate with other guest in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
