If you are looking for a warm, friendly place to stay with beautiful location and friendly company, then you should definitely consider Shambhala. My partner and I arrived here from Bangkok via Koh Samui and have thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights. We booked a superior beachview bungalow, only a minute from the laid back restaurant on the beach. Everyone working here has been welcoming (thank you, Carlo, Daha, and Jon) and we really enjoyed meeting the cosmopolitan mixture of German, Swiss, French, Chilean, and Scandinavian guests. The rooms are clean, shower with hot water, bedding fresh, food tasty, beach front clean, sea wonderfully warm, and sunsets on this side of the island as romantic as you could want :) We've had fun seeing some of the more touristic things, like the snake show about 20 minutes from here by taxi, but have most enjoyed lazing around in a peaceful atmosphere, reading, while sipping the banana & coconut shakes ... Would love to come here again!
