This prize resort nestles on a rocky headland leading to the white-sand Baan Tai beach at the western end of Mae Nam. Rooms are in rustic-themed teak cottages with high ceilings, and come with private pools, sumptuous decor, and large bathtubs. The largest is a four-bedroom, oceanfront pool residence that offers total privacy, yet easy access to the resort’s services. These include superb spa facilities and excellent in-house dining choices. The only downside to a stay here is the hotel’s isolation, though many guests feel little need to leave the premises.
