Paradise on earth. Not ideal for beach swimming, so consider spending most of the in-water time in one of their beautiful swimming pools. The food is great and the rooms are exotic. Incredible peaceful and quiet place. Consider exploring the island by renting a motor bike (scooter) to travel a road that goes all around the island's perimeter. You can visit other beaches, and enjoy the scenery as you travel. For a cheaper bike price; exit this village and turn right when you get to the main road. Walk for around 5-10 minutes and you will get to a bridge right before a hill. Go over the hill and you will see a small restaurant on your left hand side. Stop there and tell them you want to rent a motor bike. They will call someone who will bring you a motor bike from a different hotel that just don't the street for half the price. I paid 600 bath ($20) for 36 hrs - totally worth it! - Don't forget to buy an iced coffee =) to thank for the favor. Continue traveling in the same direction and you will find a convenience store on the left hand side. You can get your booze (and other necessities) here at a much lower price than the hotel.
