We stayed at this small slice of paradise for relaxation, romance, quiet, and to be able to travel places and be close to town but to also be away from it all at the end of the day….this location provided JUST that. Hidden away on the hillside with an incredible view and a beautiful natural villa…it was lovely. The room was truly unique and offered a great view, and the pool was bliss to come home to after a busy day!! Waking up to that view also was spectacular. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly and the food was delicious!! Literally the BEST green curry we've had in Thailand, and we've been here for almost 2 months. Plan to be a part of nature as there were fluffy tailed squirrels and cool coloured lizards and fruit bats hanging out with us at our villa, and lots of birds and butterflies. Yes, there are mosquitoes, but that's everywhere and it was nothing a mosquito net couldn't solve….they provided spray and coils. Something living in the roof directly above our bed chose to wake us a lot earlier than anticipated everyday, but we were awake, with coffee in the room, to see the sun come up every day which was lovely!! All a matter of perspective. :) The lounging area with the TV & DVD player was great to unwind in the shade and a perfect spot to order some more of their great home cooked goodness (very well priced food and minibar!). We could easily have stayed more nights just to try the rest of the menu and for the private pool. There's also a great area for taking in the sunshine with the view beside the pool. There is a parking place for your scooter at the bottom of the hill (but plan on a few stairs to climb to get to your villa) or you could get a car/taxi to the top of the hill, or you can walk to and from town…takes about 10min. And call it lucky but there were no children at the resort when we were there so it offered a wonderful adults only stay…this place is wonderful for romance, not kids. We would like to recommend some sort of privacy screen at the main entrance to the villa and in the left corner beside the fridge as you are literally on display to anyone that passes on the stairs. Fortunately there are only 4 villas total so virtually no traffic, but a tad more privacy couldn't hurt anyone. Also could use a bottle opener and lighter. Overall a lovely stay with great staff and a beautiful pool villa with a fantastic view….definitely staying here again!
