The Surin commands an excellent view of Pansea Bay and has its own private stretch of sand, with shady wooden walkways under the cover of lush coconut groves. From the exotic lobby, with columns and a lily pond, to sleek private bungalows, it is one of the most handsome properties on the island. True, the quality comes with a big price tag, but this romantic getaway has all the details down pat. From the beach, grab a snorkel, body board, yoga mat, or try windsurfing. Each room is a thatched mini-suite with a private sun deck and top amenities, and some of them are just steps from the sand. The black-tile swimming pool is large and luxurious. The fine service here caters to the likes of honeymooners and celebrities, but everyone is treated like a VIP.
