This hotel sits in a small peaceful village in the middle of preserved tropical rain forests and near the Khao Lak National Park. Villas are spread out near the lagoon, the pool and the beach, are individually and creatively decorated in a simple Thai style, and provide privacy and relaxed comfort. Of course there are plenty of water sports activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving, and the pool or beach is a relaxing alternative for the more sedate among us. But for a unique adventure, check out the caves near the hotel. One cave is a shrine filled with Buddha imagery and intricate, natural rock formations. Many more caves are in the area. The resident chef serves some fine home cooking. This is a tranquil spot and the beauty will be remembered long after your vacation ends.
