This is the perfect chill-out location. A secluded natural setting with tropical gardens and a small private beach of white powdery sand. Smooth granite boulders and palm trees provided a film-set backdrop for our holiday photos.
We soon fell under the spell of this place and had to drag ourselves away to go sight-seeing.
The attentive owners and staff work so well together that they seem like one big family. Even the pet parrot likes to join in, riding around on someone's shoulder.
We stayed in a medium priced bungalow with A/C, fridge, tea/coffee and free use of a safe. We liked the rustic style with a 'thatch' roof, wooden balcony and of course, a sea view. We called it Robinson Crusoe with air-conditioning!
The restaurant serves excellent Thai food with generous portions and agreeable prices - definitively recommended.
There are no late-night revelers here because the bar closes around ten. If you're looking for action, the bustling center of Lamai is 2-3km away.
A 24 hour supermarket is less than 10 minutes walk away.
Why do we give it 5 stars? Well, nowhere is perfect but we have never had a more relaxed or carefree holiday than this.
Idyllic setting - efficient and friendly staff - great food.
