The newest addition under the Ritz Carlton umbrella tucked into a picturesque bay of white sand and azure lazily lapping sea, this is where you can totally immerse yourself in self-indulgence without a flicker or a hint of dastardly guilt.  It is the ultimate retreat to pursue those happy dreams whilst languishing under skilled hands in the wellness centre, wallowing on a day bed beside a translucent sparkling pool, gorging on local delicacies or immersing yourself in a cultural journey.

This slice of heaven with its internationally renowned beach culture of glorious sun drenched days, red sky sunsets and unparalleled Thai hospitality can be reached via a 45-minute flight from Bangkok.  You can have finding Nemo moments (or if you suffer from short-term memory loss pretend you are chasing Dory) under the water whilst gawking at the reef, show-off your prowess in the kick-boxing ring or the gym, take to a surfboard or a kayak if you want to stay above the water or indulge in some personal sweat time with a game of tennis, a jog or a hike. If getting physical on holidays is not your thing, the resort pool awaits you with comfy sun lounges or a secluded sun soaked beach has your name on it.

For self-indulgent pampering desires there is the spa village with 8 treatment suites where you can have a Songkran shower and a coconut scrub or a blessed flower treatment to restore your out-of-wack mind, body and soul.  There are also 3 outdoor massage pavilions as well as a yoga pavilion, a lap pool with cabanas and a health bar dishing up refreshing concoctions.  You won’t be bothered by stray kids as they have their own pool area and a kid’s club to keep them entertained, whether you admit that they are yours or not.

Golf buggies are supplied so that you don’t have to exert your leg muscles getting around the resort and there are 6 on-site dining options.  You never have to leave the resort’s wondrous playground unless you wish to explore further afield.

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.
