How to Get There
We felt a wow factor when we first arrived that did not wear off over our five-night stay, and we were very sad to leave.
The whole environment of the resort is exceptional - the spaciousness of the villas, the lush jungly planting, the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, stunning sea views, the freedom from noise and air pollution (the occasional planes did not disturb us). The design is respectful of the landscape, with a focus on sustainability, using natural materials and reducing waste. But the staff who work here make it what it is and they all deserve high praise: They were unfailingly charming, welcoming, warm and efficient, wanting to do everything possible for you. Our GEM Joe was superb, even calling our airline for us to resolve an issue with our journey home.
There were a few families with children during our visit and the resort does provide some family-friendly activities, but overall this feels like a calming and restful, adult-focused destination which was something we especially appreciated about it.
We spent much of our time reading and relaxing by the gorgeous infinity pool, and also enjoyed a farm tour, early morning yoga and using the compact but lovely gym. We borrowed bikes to visit some of the nearby temples. A visit to Samui’s ethical elephant sanctuary was a highlight of our stay.
We had breakfast and dinner each day at the dining on the hill restaurant and were very satisfied with all we enjoyed there. The breakfast selection is fantastic. I am vegan and the restaurant team did a great job of understanding my needs and ensuring I had lots of choice, even adapting dishes like their chocolate nemesis cake with plant-based ingredients just for me. I also enjoyed a one-to-one cookery lesson and learned how to make some of my favourite Thai dishes. Just a couple of times, there were some coordination issues among the waiting team - one day a dessert arrived before we’d been brought our main course for example - but this in no way lessened our enjoyment, as the overall service was very thoughtful and attentive.
We are already looking forward to another stay!
As we depart for our next adventure we reflect upon a thoroughly magical stay. Stayed in a hideaway villa which did everything it said on the tin with a view to boot. Their ecological ethics are refreshing but what put the icing on cake is every single member of staff, nothing is too trivial and everything is with a smile. Too many names to mention, even the goats. We look forward to seeing you all again soon
It's a great experience overall. We love how its architecture blends with the landscape. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The breakfast has a lot of healthy options
Another big plus is that the resort made a huge effort in minimising the use of one-time disposable items. Other than used tissues and bags for potato chips (which we brought from the outside) we don't remember throwing anything else into the trash can. all the shampoos, lotions and drinking water are in refillable bottles. The restaurants use lemon grass for straws
