My husband and I spent 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon and it was so relaxing. We had a beachfront bungalow which was perfect - I will say now though that it wasn't right next to the beach but it was close enough, and there is a line of trees separating the beach from the bungalows so you do not have an unbroken view of the sea. That is all no matter though, and we loved it as it was!
The bungalow was quite small inside but adequate. We loved the style in which it was built, but also appreciated the western-style plumbing in the bathroom! The only thing is that the lighting was very dim, which made reading very difficult at night, but I don't think that's down to pennypinching (as other reviewers have suggested), it's just the way it is.
We loved the outside areas of the bungalow, which include balcony & seating areas. The distance between bungalows is such that there is no disturbance to or from your neighbours. The walk to the beach is about 1 minute tops. We were in the furthest bungalow from the main reception & restaurant - I can't remember the name of ours but it was the Thai word for "pineapple".
The facilities are good. The restaurant is lovely, there are hammocks along the beach and wooden swings dotted around. One day we went kayaking by ourselves, which was great. We ate exclusively at the on-site restauant which isn't the cheapest nor does it have the most extensive menu but it was good.
If we had stayed there longer we would have gone a bit further and ventured out of the resort but we were happy to stay where we were for R&R. The resort is at the end of a very bumpy track and it would be quite a walk to the main village but we would have hired bikes if we'd been there longer.
You do see your fair share of wildlife and we almost stood on a hermit crab in the dark one night!! So be prepared as if you are not a fan of creepy crawlies you might get a shock. That said, I don't remember any unwanted visitors, but you will see loads of crabs on the beach. We didn't see any lizards or monkeys though. :(
A magical place that we would love to visit again!
