We stayed here for a long weekend and loved the facilities, room, amenities and view. Set up the hill from Kata beach, the hotel features stunning views out across Kata Noi, taken in from either the beautiful infinity pool, lounge area beside it, or platforms outside your room. Covered lounges and huge bean bags make the pool area a comfortable hang out throughout day/night. The staff at the Tiffin Mama restaurant were exceptional and food/drinks top notch. Saturday night they featured a "beach party" with a live band covering western favourites as well. It's a short walk to the famous "After Beach Bar" which is also a fabulous spot to watch the sun set, eat thai food and listen to reggae and other western hits.
The only downsides we found is that it's either a 200baht tuk-tuk/taxi fare to get up/down the hill into Kata beach, or a very steep, sweaty walk, and the front desk service was friendly but not so helpful...they couldn't point us to a bar to watch the World Cup games, and when we tried to arrange a taxi to the airport, they quoted 1300baht, but if you just go right outside the door the local taxi service will take you there for 1000.
All in all, we had a great weekend and would definitely return!
Stay here for: great views; modern, well-appointed boutique accommodation; delicious restaurant/breakfast/great happy hour; quiet relaxation away from the main beaches; for something special.
Don't stay here if: you want to be right on the main beach strip, or even a flat walk into town (it's a steep hill)!
