This slickly designed resort sits on the far northern end of Krabi (just past the Sheraton; see below), and consists of a collection of luxurious private villas sprinkled among indigo pools, pavilions, and meticulously kept gardens. The name means the “sacred sea dragon,” and this stylish outcrop does look otherworldly. Public spaces are delightfully spartan; the eclectic decor tends to mix Angkorian antiquities with a cool contemporary style. Villas are aligned for optimal privacy, and inside everything is a harmonious blend of light wood and granite. Rooms range from a basic villa to a couple of over-the-top private-pool villas with huge terraces and sea views. The spa is inviting; the seaside pool, an oasis; and the resort restaurant, excellent.
