This is the place to stay if you want complete and utter relaxation, time out from all the world....you arrive and are immediately embraced by exceptional service and complete privacy. The holiday is all about you and this is evident from day one. You can choose to do whatever you want, whenever you want.
Facililties are excellent, from your villa to restaurant/lounge bar, spa, gymnasium, library with DVD's, free Wi-Fi. The seaview villas are just out of this world with the most brilliant, mesmorising view. Privacy in your villas is completely respected. The bathroom is massive with bathtub (complete with rose petals), two shower heads for your particular choice, twin sinks/mirrors and separate toilet. The bed is extremely comfortable and faces the magnificent view. Storage is not a problem and is quite ample. For morning coffee lovers, there is an excellent coffee pod machine so that you can make a quick brew and escape to the lounge in your bathrobe on the outside deck to wake up.
Room staff were most efficient and spend a lot of time on the "finer details" ensuring a comfortable stay, e.g. extra towels, surprise romantic settings. The toiletries were high in quality and we never ran out of toiletries as they were constantly supplied as necessary. The room including the bathroom, deck, pool as well as linen were extremely clean and complete with beautiful flowers and designs made from the bathtowels.
As for the restaurant "Harbour" and the "Lighthouse" ......just fabulous. Breakfast has a selection of western and asian selections. The breakfast staff quickly identified us and had our tea/coffee preferences organised each day. You can sit at breakfast for as long as you like just relaxing on the water, reading etc. The a la carte menu is extensive and also includes authentic thai food. The staff at the restaurant are just amazing. They were so very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much. They are always very happy to assist and during our stay we could not find a better quality restuarant to visit. Why would you want to go anywhere else, when you can literally sit on the beachside enjoying the sunset with drinks and beautifully prepared meals? We think that the evening restaurant staff have a great team and manager which is working perfectly to ensure guests are given optimum service. On our last night, the staff created an amazing farewell gift for us by transforming a beachside setting into a beautiful private dining area, complete with a walkway of candles and lights. Our last night was even more magical and I actually cried when we departed.
I must make mention of the room service. The restaurant organised room service for us one night and everything was perfectly presented and hot. The staff really go out of their way to ensure that guests are given what they ask for, including additional food requests that are not on the menu.
The spa provides an extensive spa menu which guests should indulge in at least once. I visited the spa 3 times for different treatments and loved it. Spa amenities are of high quality and staff are respectful and deliver quality service.
The gymnasium is spotless and has everything one would need to exercise, treadmill, crosstrainer and free weights as well as pin loaded weight machines.
The library and DVD collection has great choice.
Buggy cars are provided as needed by guests if you prefer not to walk between your villa and other resort destinations.
Perfect holiday, so very very sad to leave.
