Elegant jungle-beach villas

What we say: 3.5 stars

Gajapuri translates to "Elephant City" in ancient Sanskrit, but we didn't see any evidence of elephants here. What we did discover was a stylish, elegant, boutique-like retreat. Connected by wooden walkways over lush gardens and streams, massive rooms are crafted out of solid teak, very Thai yet at the same time modern, with widescreen LCD TVs, DVD players, tasteful art and huge bathrooms with turquoise tiles and basin sinks. Splash out for an in-room Jacuzzi in the deluxe, or private plunge pool hidden behind classy wood doors in the private villas that are perfect for a honeymoon. While not as big as some of Ko Chang's newer high-end resorts, the pool affords sea views, and the beach here isn't too shabby either. Prices include breakfast, but unfortunately they don't include the spa facilities. Service is exceedingly polite -- almost to the point of being overly gushy. Still, we liked the relaxed Gajapuri better than the more modern-styled Chill Resort, a newer high-end spot nearby. On our late November visit, we were offered a 20% discount without even asking.
