This place is fantastic! the staff are very attentive and helpful, the rooms clean and the complex couldn't be in a more beautiful setting.
The rooms are beautiful and designed in an unusual 'open air' style apart from the bedroom. You do feel a lot closer to nature showering/bathing under the stars, however you may need to get used to using the toilet outside (and trying not to hear your neighbours).
It's set in a quiet area on the island but Chaweng is only a 20 min taxi ride if you want a more lively night out. The pool and beach area is lovely, with fab views across the bay and the other island. There are comfy sun loungers and pool towels provided.
The small things make a difference, like the housekeeping staff visiting in the evenings with biscuits and mozzie spray for your bedroom, flowers put in the bathroom and oil burners topped up - these are very nice little touches.
The only things I will say, and they aren't major as I will be going back to stay but some things to take into account:
It is expensive - the cost for drinks and food is high, breakfast is 500THB per person for a standard buffet and its worth noting the nearby local restaurants offer breakfast for half the price. Drinks are double the price and after each bar or food tab is closed, they add an extra 10% service charge - so after a couple of weeks by the pool your bill could add up to be quite a lot.
It might not be as relaxing as you think - although this is advertised as a relaxing retreat, families do stay here and during my stay, there was a number of small children, and a four month old baby which (as they do) cried A LOT, all day and night. I'm not sure why they allow children as there is nothing for them to do - so bare in mind your stay may not be as relaxing as you think.
Apart from the above, it really is a beautiful place and certainly worth a visit :-)
