Just got back from 9 nights at Kanok Buri with my fiance - really enjoyed it. This is a quiet hotel on a quiet beach so do not come here if you are looking for active night life etc. This was just what we wanted. Kanok Buri has hotel rooms in the main building which is where we booked in advance - all have a balcony with jacuzzi. They also have beautiful villas set in gardens either with or without plunge pool - after seeing these we asked reception how much it would be to upgrade and for a bargain 1000baht/night we bagged ourselves the front villa with plunge pool (304) - this worked out much cheaper than upgrading on the various websites before arriving. One thing you need to be aware of if you book a villa in advance is that they only have a certain amount of them on the beach side of road which splits the resort (when I say road, it is pretty quiet) - I would definitely try and get one on the beach side.
The hotel's restaurant was excellent - not as cheap as in the major resorts but then you expect this without the competition being there. However Big John's seafood restaurant next door was also really good - seafood platter was excellent. There were a couple of typical Thai roadside restaurants outside the hotel too. We went over to Lamai to the night market and this was about 25mins away in a taxi - pretty much the closest place for nightlife.
Kanok Buri is perfect for relaxation - you can get awy from everything here - the staff are freindly and courteous without being in your face all the time.
Oh and the best part of all of it - the sunsets - we saw four of the best sunsets we have ever seen around the world whilst we were here whilst knocking back your bottle of singha or sipping your Mai Tai!
