My husband and I stayed at this resort for nine nights after a hectic weekend in Bangkok. The resort is undoubtedly the best one on Sai Kaew beach. We stayed in a deluxe cottage in the garden area, which was lovely, really close to the small and quieter beach in the resort, away from the relative chaos of Sai Kaew beach itself. The room had everything we needed although not very luxurious, it was more than adequate and kept extremely well by the maids who visited at least once a day. This place is more pricey than other places in Sai Kaew, but if you want a real retreat, this is it. The spa is lovely too. The restaurant has a good selection of both Thai and Western food, all of a high standard, and good value by western standards (though quite expensive by thai standards!). Drinks are expensive, especially the wine, but at least it's nice wine! They can organise either a shuttle to the ferry or a speedboat to and from Ban Phe, nothing is too much trouble for them. Standard of English spoken is very good.
One negative thing is the muzak played in the restaurant - after nine days of instrumental, pan pipe versions of nineties and early noughties hits, I'd had enough!
Really though, nothing to criticise, it's a lovely place and, although more pricey than other places, you can certainly see the difference in the standard of everything.
