Instead of re-writing all the other great things written about this resort (it's all true), I'll add a few unique experiences based on Katie and Martin's excellent service and genuine caring about their guests...
Even from weeks before staying there, Katie was readily available via email to answer any and all questions I had about getting to the island and the resort from Bangkok, very helpful!
While staying at the resort, Martin and Katie booked things for us (my girlfriend and I), recommended things to do, and sorted out anything we needed, including getting back to Bangkok. Another super helpful thing they did for me, and they absolutely didn't have to, was to let me put some extra activities on my resort bill...basically saving me the trouble of finding an ATM or cash on the island and saving money on those fees as well.
The food was excellent, we were huge fans of the chef and went for any recommendation he could come up with. Fantastic dinners!
The location was great, even though wishing to be next to the beach popped in my mind a few times. The pool was small but very nice and clean. The bathroom was a separate room, but there's not a lot of privacy in a bamboo hut. The thin walls also allowed for some outside noise from the parking area and the kitchen.
Fully recommended. It's a great place. In a world where most tourism businesses just want to take as much of your money as possible, Martin and Katie are a refreshing change. They are genuine and caring business owners and truly deserve to be successful!
