An excellent hotel just a half hours walk/10 minute tuk tuk from the main city. It's worth staying a short ride away from the hussle and bussle to get a truly relaxing experience.
The staff were friendly and attentive, even to the extent of opening every door for you. They were happy to give/find information for you and tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
The room was immaculate, which is what I expect of a hotel, but sadly isn't what I've experienced elsewhere in Thailand. The amenities were of a high quality and quantity, they're all also sold in the shop located in the lobby.
The grounds were idyllic and the breakfast varied and tasty. The only bad thing was the cost, unfortunately, it's a little pricy and obviously the surrounding area doesn't have much, so you will spend more on tuk tuks. But if you have the money, I strongly advise you to spend it there!
