We stayed at the beachfront deluxe bungalow, my husband, myself and our two teenaged children. We really enjoyed the place. The view was spectacular out across a beautiful private beach. There was mild wave action which was nice for the sound, the weather was perfect (a better place to go during rainy season than the wetter phuket side of thailand) and the staff were really warm and welcoming.
We had a bungalow that was the only one fronting onto the beach and it felt like it was our own private beach just for the four of us. At night, at one end of the beach, Charlie would set up the bar with pretty lights and anything you want to drink and it felt like it was our own private bar! Just a few steps away, up the hill was the pool overlooking the bay and the restaurant. The food was good - not fabulous - but good and sort of homestyle cooking. The drinks were wonderful. We must have drunk about 100 fresh lime juices while we were there. We were hooked.
The rooms were pretty well filled up by the beds and the television and the big closet but it felt roomier than that because of the huge expansive view and the fact that you could open all the windows to the ocean breeze. We could've plucked the coconut right off the palm tree from in front of our room.
Our hope was to be in an isolated setting with a great beach and the chance to just hang out, read and do nothing and that's exactly what we did. The guys at the restaurant who were super friendly and goofy made it all the more fun.
The beach itself had some rocky sections where you couldu watch crabs catching fish - so cool! And at night you'd see the squid boats and lantern fishermen come out and the water in the bay was so shallow you could walk and walk and walk before it came up to your waist.
Also each of us had a great massage while we were there - the aloe vera massage realy helped with the sunburn we got on koh samui!
