+ The staff. Friendly. Helpful. Attentive.
+ The grounds. Immaculate and green.
+ The Cocktails. Great variety, fresh.
+ Happy Hour! 5pm - 7pm at the bar near the pool/beach watching the sunset is a dream.
+ The Pool. Clean, infinity pool onto the beach/ocean looks amazing.
+ The Food. Good quality, great presentation, good mix of Thai and Western.
+ The Spa. I've had better spas to be honest in Thailand, but it certainly was relaxing. It was 30% off on Tuesday, and partner treatments were free on Friday!
+ The Location. The beach is great and very long (it's called Long Beach). There are a few bars along the beach if you're keen to try something different.
+ Adults only. No Kids, it's as amazing as you think it might be!
+ The Boat Transfer. Use this option if possible, it's a little pricey, so do it if you can, it makes the trip shorter and is a relaxing way to arrive.
- The external tour company we used but booked through the resort was very average. It was quite unlike any other experience offered by the hotel. This is a stretch though - it was hard to come up with anything here!
Summary - Pretty much everything was great. If you're after a relaxing beach holiday with your partner then just go.
Special thanks to Ned and Solae for being so friendly and helpful during our stay.
