Best location by FAR. You have a beautiful small island just 10min away from crazy busy Phuket mainland, shared with one other accommodation place and a handful of extremely friendly locals (who go about fishing and raising their families tucked away and spread out over the lush rainforest and beaches).
You'll see amazing wildlife like toucans, bats, monkeys, crabs, heaps of hermit crabs and fish and chipmunk type critters?! - unlike on the Phuket mainland where any animal you see is either in a zoo, chained to a bar or drugged for 'cute' compliance.
The manager (or host) lady was so kind and friendly, she would accommodate your wishes without hesitation. Whenever you feel hungry she'd call the chef into the kitchen, if you wanted to spend the day on the mainland she would call the boatman, when you are at breakfast/lunch/beachin' she would call the cleaners to tend your little villa for you, etc etc. Fantastic care and hospitality, all staff would always give you a big wide smile and offer whatever they could.
Food was brilliant- the head chef is fantastic. The prices are slightly higher than on the mainland because each day trips to the mainland are taken to find fresh ingredients on foot by one staff member. Perhaps 60-80 Auslatrain cents more per meal...
