I like the whimsical feel of the lounge - makes you feel like you're in some faraway land (it is actually).
We stayed at the Deluxe room and it really was one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed at. Clean, white and soft king-sized bed, plush comforters, a cozy sofa area for nice quiet readings, a spacious bathroom with marble tiles and bathtub, and this idyllic view that greeted me every morning.
I really should plan for a beach holiday every year. It's truly therapeutic just lazing on the sun bed with a book and falling asleep to the soothing sounds of splashing waves.
I must be biased to say this, but sunsets at the foreign beaches are the best. The hues of orange and pink bursting across the horizon took my breath away and I'm so grateful for technology that allows me to capture such beautiful moments on the go.
How can I not indulge in the spa after a week of hard work? The white spaces lead to the spa treatment rooms and it was a pity that I did not get to take a photo of the greenery just outside the spa room! I tried the 'Oriental Energizing' massage and the masseuse was very attentive to my needs and wants and she made me feel so refreshed and energized after the treatment. Massage can be quite subjective, but it was superbly good to me!
Another plus point would be the international buffet breakfast. It was an internal struggle every morning - Eggs benedict or muesli with yoghurt or french toast or ... Yeap, there is a wide variety of high quality and tasty food to satisfy almost any craving you may have.
The only drawback about this resort is the lack of shopping and restaurants around the area. We usually take a shuttle "tuk-tuk" to the nearest Turtle Village for Thai western food or we get the hotel to help us arrange for transport to a restaurant called Kin Dee restaurant for awesome Thai food.
Airport transfer can either be arranged by the hotel or through this website and it's a short half hour journey though subjected to traffic conditions.
