This very good midrange resort is spread over the headland to the west of Chalok Ban Kao, which stretches high above the sea to the namesake viewpoint near the sacred Buddha rock.

Freestanding circular villas come with brushed concrete walls, mosquito nets draped over sumptuous beds, hardwood floors and vaulted rattan ceilings. Equipped with safes, TVs, WiFi, fridges, coffee/tea facilities, bathrobes and large bathrooms with multiple showerheads, the villas are placed relatively far apart for a strong sense of privacy.

Comfortable living.

Every room has a wide wooden terrace with floor cushions and at least partial sea views accessed through doors made of wood and glass. The priciest editions bag you private plunge pools and interesting bamboo designs behind the beds. This resort is a lot more elegant than the midrange spots found down on Chalok Ban Kao Beach. Just don’t stay here if stairs are an issue.

In addition to the highest viewpoint that places you at least 50 metres above the sea for tremendous sunsets, the resort has a second viewpoint with cushioned loungers spread over a seaside lawn shaded by broad palms. You also get a small sea-view swimming pool, seaside restaurant and massages in the Chillax Hut. The European women at reception and the Burmese man who showed us around were all polite and friendly. Shared with the rundown Taraporn Bungalows, an isolated beach stretches below the resort at the bottom of long, winding stairways.
