Targetting families, honeymoon couples and holidaymakers in search of peace and quiet, this resort marked its first anniversary last month. Set on a 24-rai, beachfront plot, it claims to offer five-star facilities. It has 211 rooms and 29 villas ranging in size from 50m2 to 150m2. Every room has a sea-facing balcony and every villa a private plunge pool. There's a large swimming pool next to the 350m stretch of beach and at low tide one can practise one's drive by launching golf balls into the surf (they're retrieved later). One can also sign up for cookery and yoga classes or partake in various watersports.
