We stayed at View Poitn Resort in early December for 8 nights. We were greeted at the pier by a hotel staff member and paid a discounted price for the trip to our hotel (100 bhat pp from memory). It is definately out of the main town but worth heading to this location. Hotel staff gave us a wet flannel for our faces on arrival which was magnificent as we were so hot, as well as a nice tea. After being directed to our room, we were in awe of our bungalow and the view of Chalok Bay! We were in the first row of bungalows from the sea - high enough to be amongst the forest, but also not too far from the water or restaurant (1 min walk). The view was incredible! It felt private as there was bush between the bungalows. The room had a bed which was quite hard and you could feel the springs, but we slept fairly well. We had a fan - which was definately needed - it got hot, so it cooled us down well! The bathroom was modern with a shower that looked out to the sea - great indoor/outdoor feel. Loved the complimentary shampoo/conditioner and body moisturiser - smelled delciious! The restaurant was amazing! Food was delicious everytime! Such great quality food for decent Western prices (but expensive compared to the cheap Thai restaurants surrounding). But for that quality - it would be wrong to make it cheaper! Chalok Bay is lovely. The resort had its own private beach, which was the best spot by far - but you could walk along to other parts of the bay/restaurants easily. '711' and other shops/mini marts were within a 5-10min walk from hotel. Did get a little noisy from a couple of bars in the bay - but with windows shut you couldn't hear it. It is a little isolated from the rest of the town - need to get a taxi out - but we were happy to be in a not so crowded area. Overall had a great time and loved every minute. Allie (the owner) was lovely - helping us out with restaurant choices and other options. We will be back Allie! Your place was paradise! Very lovely restaurant staff also!
