We stayed at Infinity in September and upon arrival were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment. Upon arrival we were greeted politely and made to feel welcome. The resort is located up a very steep hill, approximately 2km from the main road. The complex has 7 levels that are on the hill side and we had the top level. The different levels are located down the hillside which is quite steep. We were able to walk to our room and the open aired restaurant.
Modern elegant decorated room. It was very functional and when you arrive you certainly appreciate the ambiance of the room. The room we had a spectacular view and looks across to Koh Phangan which is in the distance. The view made you feel relaxed and along with the location, we felt the place was very peaceful. The room had it's own private infinity pool (ours was a plunge pool) and all this combined was exactly what we were looking for.
The restaurant has a nice buffet breakfast. We had a few wrong orders and once had to return the food as it was cold. The team quickly fixed everything. The wait staff were always friend and tried to help but with English as a 2nd language you can sometimes get some confusion happening. We were on holiday and relaxed and to us this did not bother us. It may upset some, but when you understand how hard it is to speak Thai for us, I can imagine how hard it is for Thai people to speak English.
Make sure you get down to the restaurant for some cocktails during happy hour. We arrived early and enjoyed a few before it got dark and they were great.
As an alternate to dining at the resort at the bottom of the hill there are some great beach restaurants along the main road and well worth visiting.
As mentioned there is a nasty hill and a courtesy car can take you down the hill (make sure you ask for a mobile to ring them to pick you up for when you return). The resort is located away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach. If you want piece and quite and away from the main area, then this is your place. If you want to be in walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and have lots of people, then don't come here without hiring a car or being prepared to be adventurous and use the local public transport - either a Taxi (quite expensive as it is a long distance from Chaweng) or the Bus (a ute enclosed with to running board seats).
Off the main road, the hill starts about 800m and goes for just over 1km. It is steep, and 1.6l auto Corolla I had to pop back into 1st gear. You certainly can drive up the hill but I would not recommend walking it unless you are extremely fit and have water. I have a video of it, so if you would like to see what it is like, message me and I will email a copy.
We were impressed by the resort. It is not a 5 star resort as it does not have a gym, spa, steam room and have absolute perfect luxury and perfect service etc...we weren't looking for that. It does have a great feel and tranquility and overall it was very good and we would love to return.
