My girlfriend and I spent 8 nights around New Year's Eve in this lovely resort situated 15 minutes from Ao-Nang, near the Sheraton and the Sofitel.
We had a great experience right from the start. Being a member of Small Luxury Hotels, this hotel was an obvious choice for me and I had the amazing surprise to be upgraded to a Jacuzzi Villa (additional 25m² of living space + outdoor Jacuzzi). So, for people who wonder whether this property does offer recognition to SLH members, the answer is yes!
I also met the owner by chance and he was very attentive to my comments (mainly positive) and offered us to discuss around a meal. He is thai and that probably explains why you feel like this resort has a true authentic touch that the others don't (like the nearby mentioned hotels).
The atmosphere is intimate with not so many villas, a Spa, a semi-private beach (used by few people) and the staff is indeed very kind.
The restaurant was a good surprise since prices are around 3-7 USD for starters and 6-13 USD for meals. Not cheap in itself for Thailand but definitely cheap for a 5 star resort.
The only shortcoming was the beach that has a rough sand with a lot of broken shells everywhere but the pool is so lovely that it's not a real problem. You might want to think twice about a romantic walk down the beach though or take a good pair of shoes.
We were offered a 50-minute spa treatment for two and chose a massage that was delightful!
All in all, very good discovery and we will be back.
