As the name of this place suggests, this is more than just a hotel. Almost everything is just perfect. We booked a beach view chalet, and loved it. From the welcome iced drink that was waiting for us when we arrived to the special effort the staff made to get up early in order to give us breakfast when we had to leave early the owner, her son and the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel at home.
Our accommodation was palatial, with the biggest bathroom I've seen anywhere. There was a complementary basket of fruit, the bedroom was very well appointed, the free WiFi worked well and there was even a walk-in wardrobe big enough for all our clothes and more. There was a choice of three different types of breakfast (included in the price).
Food was generally very good, though the fried pompano was a disappointment. The grounds were beautifully laid out and gave us excellent privacy. This was a perfect place to chill out and relax. Nathon was a short taxi ride away, and the staff were always happy to call one for you.
What was interesting was that many of the other guests were regulars, some having come back several times for quite long periods. I rthink that's the best measure of what a great place this is. Not cheap for Thailand, but amazing value considering the level of luxury.
