Its almost annoying when you can't find anything to criticise in a review as it adds nothing to the other 5 star reviews but this place is absolutely deserving of all its praise. My husband and I stayed here at the tail end of our honeymoon for 7 days and found it incredibly difficult to leave. From the moment we were picked up at the hotel and greeted with a cold towel and drink and an ipad to listen to our choice of music I knew this was going to be a great hotel. The hotel is perfect for couples wanting a relaxed break, It literally feels like your one of a handful of guests, it is always perfectly serene even though we were there whilst the hotel was at max capacity, there were always sun loungers available by the pool and we were always able to get a seat at the restaurants without prior booking. We were upgraded prior to our arrival to a suite which is absolutely huge for 2 people. We loved the double showers and the balcony. The food was very good in both The Ficus and The edge restaurants, it was incredibly pricey however so we opted to eat out 2 of the 6 nights we were there, the breakfast at anytime option is just pure genius and the selection very wide. We borrowed bikes and rode to the nearby waterfall one day and also went on the snorkelling trip with the hotel to the Similan islands neither of us had snorkelled before whilst others had in our group but the guides were very professional and very patient and the pace was perfect, the lunch provided on the trip was excellent and we felt it was definitely worth the money. The hotel has a very beautiful beach but unfortunately whilst we were there they were no activites going on. What sets the hotel apart for me is the service, everyone from the waiters to the receptionists to the gardeners/maintenance people greet you with a sawadeekaa as you pass, and everyone seems genuinely eager to serve. We had a gecko in our room one night and called the front desk which sent someone immediately. After a few days the staff at the restaurants knew our room number, names and drinks which always does well to make a guest feel special. We went to 2 of the special themed dining nights the loi krathong night and the Asian night at the hotel which were both absolutely fabulous, there was an incredible variety of food and the entertainment was very enjoyable also.
To criticise is simply to nitpick but if I had to criticise something it would be the region restriction on the dvd player, it definitely sucks to get a dvd player in your room which only plays thai dvd's. We stayed at 3 other hotels across Thailand and this is the only hotel we encountered this (we were honeymoon so spent a lot of time in the room and I know this would have made it for my husband).
