It's a long climb up a lot of steps to the rooms here and the views, overlooking Ton Sai village and Lo Dalam in the distance, are great.

The rooms have hardwood floors, fridges, TV, safes and air-con, with reasonably-sized balconies that offer little privacy. Rooms are sizeable, with huge comfy beds and a pleasant bathroom, which in the luxury suites is larger than the average backpacker bungalow alone. The staff are quite friendly and welcoming and there is a small pool located at the base of the resort. Although it's not that cheap, the location is great and if you're up for a splurge you could do far worse. It was nearly full on our visit in August 2014, mostly with families by the looks of it. Nonetheless, we were offered a big discount if we booked at least three or four nights. The Super Deluxe rooms are higher up, so therefore a slight workout as far as the steps are concerned, but well worth the extra money as their balconies are far more private.
