A 10-minute walk from Kata Beach (or short ride on the complimentary shuttle), you’ll pass a small portico of stone with some Khmer statuary; walk in and you’ll discover a little Eden. An attractive garden surrounds a small pool with ornate fountains, waterfalls, and overflowing greenery. For digs, you have two choices: garden rooms that are fairly compact but stylish, with canopy beds and outdoor rain showers. Or the stunning pool access Baray Villas which are enormous, featuring a delightfully ornate blend of Moroccan and Thai design. The spa mixes treatments from those two cultures, too.
