Remote luxury hotel, worth the effort to get there

What it is: a massive luxury resort on the north east corner of koh phangan. It sits on a fairly steep hill that meets the ocean with a private beach marked by rocky points on either side. They drive you in in special cars, a la Jurassic Park. All of the check-in, restaurants, pool, spa, etc is at the bottom of the hill near the water, and the rooms go up. There are electric carts going around all the time that can give you a ride up or down. The place is huge, with lots of guests. At peak times (meals) in communal areas (restaurant / pool) it can feel a bit crowded. Due to its isolation, I think most of its guests never leave the premises. And honestly, you don’t really have to. The restaurant is ample and quality, and the grounds are spacious. The rooms are suuuuper nice, and the rooms near the top of the property have their own pool so you don’t have to trek all the way down. Room service was great. We were there during a MASSIVE storm, and it was amazing. Couldn’t have had a better hotel to be trapped in a storm in. What it isn’t: cheap, or central. You can walk to a nearby town (about 20 min along the road, 5 min along the beach, tide permitting) which has all the things you’d need / expect in a Thai island town. But it knows it’s a remote town on a touristy Thai island, and prices itself accordingly. Everything is about 15% more than the rest of the island, which is already obviously more than the mainland. But compared to western prices, it’s still inexpensive. The hotel might seem overpriced, but take advantage of included buffet meals and other amenities and it’s definitely worth it. You won’t mind the remoteness because of the luxury. I don’t give out a lot of 5 stars. We stayed at this place during trying conditions, and it was still a 5 Star experience. I can only imagine what the place is like when it’s not having a typhoon hit it. I wouldn’t spend my entire Thai trip at a hotel like this. I like to interact with actual Thai people a bit more. But a few nights here after going cheap for a while is heaven on earth. Oh yeah: the whole vibe of the place is Buddhist. Peace abounds. And when you’re quiet, magical things happen. Enjoy!
