Knai Bang Chatt

With rates that start at $126 a night for a single room (skyrocketing up to $458 for a suite), this luxurious compound isn't trying to be anything but the very best.

The setting is sublime -- a landscaped lawn estate with a sizeable saltwater horizon pool, artfully placed hammocks and massage salas accompanied by a wooden, open-air restaurant along the waterfront which offers terrific views across the Gulf of Thailand and serves up fine healthy food. The architecture is unmatched too, the four main buildings all beautiful 1960s structures (except one, seamlessly added in 2012) with simple, straight lines, and low-slung, open-air walkways. The rooms vary in their minimalist style and positioning -- most, though not all, have sea views. A reading room/library by the pool has WiFi and there's ample public veranda space to enjoy the views. Relaxing spa treatments and regular yoga and meditation sessions are the final key to complete unwinding. The whole place gets updated and repainted annually during low season, so check when you're booking if there's going to be any restoration work going on. Service is discreet, friendly and efficient, with arrangements made for tours and fishing trips if you can drag yourself away from the pool. Guests have access to the Sailing Club next door and its array of water sports on offer, including snorkelling trips, hobie cat sailboats and windsurfing.
