Truly the best of the best. I have stayed at many of the nicest resorts in SE Asia, and this topped them all. Everything from the service to the rooms and food. The staff were all genuinely friendly and very interested in ensuring you get whatever you came for: fun in sun, privacy, boating etc.. We ate at both the Italian and Thai restaurants and both were well above average compared to other resort type restaurants - don't expect a michellin starred six-course meal but do expect very fine dining, with the Thai being the same quality food but a more casual setting. We did three boat trips - two with the hotel and 1 outside the resort. The cost of the resort one for a private small boat and lunch was about 300 US compared with about 80 US for the local one. There was no comparison between the two and if you are just looking to see the sights and don't mind as many as 300 tourist packed in on the boat go for the cheaper one but for the extra 200 you got so much more it was unbelievable - private island for picnics, special snorkeling spots for just your party, water and beer, cold towels , dry towels, wonderful crew etc.. My wife used the spa services and raved about it. As far as going into town, I would pass not really anything go on or in anyway comparable to the resort.
