The resort offers 177 accommodation suites of decadence that are sheer elegance in Thai style of predominantly open plan rooms with masses of area to stretch out in, where the inside blends seamlessly to the outside with verandahs and balconies flush with comfy daybeds or private spas.  Richly furnished and decorated, the bathrooms will have you swooning and running for that rubber ducky to throw in the monstrous soaking tub.

Gail Palethorpe is a self-confessed travel junky and caffeine addict with a penchant for the finer things in life such as expensive wine, designer labels and decadent fluffy pillows to lay her head on at night. Having lived in Thailand for numerous years, she is a bit of an avid hotel bed sleuth where the sheet thread count rivals the depth of the bathtub, free standing of course, and whether there is a rubber duck to play with. It is always those extra touches that win her over.
