First the negatives; it is expensive to stay, eat and drink here and once you're here, you are a captive audience and options for alternatives are limited without a long walk or taxi ride . The bungalows are widely spread out and there is a LOT of walking required to get to and from your room. There was no bathtub in my room and no fitness/ gym facilities which for a 5 star resort is surprising.
Having said that the location is stunning, and it's located on the hillside above what is effectively a private, very quiet and beautiful beach. The beach vendors are friendly and unobtrusive and will sell you pretty much anything you want much cheaper than the hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly and the service is excellent.
It is very much a couples/ honeymoon place and the peace, quiet and seclusion is the real appeal of the hotel. They run a courtsey bus to the craziness of Patong if your senses need stimulated in the evening.
