Set on a hillside perch on the north end of Karon Beach—along the crest of a hill between Karon and Relax Bay—this hideaway consists of free-standing, luxury bungalows in tropical garden surrounds, overlooking the majestic crashing surf. The room decor is tasteful with slick, modern bathrooms with skylights. The Cliff restaurant is first-rate (see p. ###), and this self-contained gem has a friendly staff who can handle any issue; they drive the zippy golf carts that transport guests around the expansive property. The outdoor waterfall pool overlooks the sea, and their outdoor spa salas add a touch of nature to a relaxing treatment. Thai cooking classes and in-villa dining with a private chef are on offer, as well.
