Built into a lush, tropical hillside that leads to its own beach, this all-suite complex has sweeping views of Tongsai Bay. Each room is designed to maximize a connection to nature, and rooms include large terraces and open-air bathtubs. Even the smallest of the villas is sprawling and at the upper tier multi-room villas host up to 10 people (which appeals to families). There is a beautiful half-moon-shaped pool set in the gardens halfway down, and a large, free-form pool at the beach with a separate children’s pool. With only 15 rooms and a large plot of sand, even a full resort will feel like a slice of heaven and never too crowded. The end result is casual outdoors ambiance.
