This chic hotel has a secluded setting that’s all about the superb beach.

Fringed by a bay of brilliant white sands and crystal clear waters, this luxurious beach resort is a must for those seeking complete relaxation. Ancient Thai décor is enriched with opulent textures and flashes of traditional colour to combine elegance and charm. A hexagonal pool forms the centrepiece of this thoughtfully-designed retreat while a perfect stretch of tranquil Pansea Beach edges the front of the hotel. There’s a range of watersports on offer here, and you can try everything from catamaran sailing to paddle boarding and snorkelling. If you prefer a more sedate pace, you can enjoy a yoga class, meditation session or a treatment at The Surin Spa.

Making the most of their oceanside setting, the restaurants here offer spectacular views of the Andaman Sea. The Beach Restaurant is set right on the water’s edge and serves a delightful variety of freshly-caught fish, while the Sunset Café presents a casual all-day menu of Asian and international specialities. Lomtalay Restaurant features water views of a different kind as it overlooks the pool. Here, you’ll enjoy breakfast served with a sea breeze each morning.

Each of the cottages feature minimalistic Thai decor and are set within a pretty beachfront coconut grove that’s linked by jungle walkways. One Bedroom Hillside Cottages are located above the lobby level and are ideal for couples in search of privacy, while One Bedroom Superior Cottages are found at lobby level. You can select the location of your One Bedroom Deluxe Cottages and can either enjoy a setting close to the hotel’s facilities or opt for a cottage that’s closer to the beach. For those travelling with family, we recommend the Deluxe Two Bedroom Cottages, featuring spectacular sea views and plenty of additional space. Step directly onto the sand from one of the indulgent beach suites which are set at the edge of the beach.
