Our Opinion:

Here is the most luxurious resort in Koh Lanta ! We personally think the villas are among the most attractive in Thailand. The resort is a true paradise both for honeymooners (choose the peaceful villas with breathtaking views of the sea) and families (we recommend the lower part of the resort).
