A recipe for the perfect vacation: a long beach, mixed with a large portion of luxury and Thai hospitality, prepared with a concept that promises peace. That’ll do it! No action, no obnoxious kids disturbing your pursuit of relaxation; and the party-hotspot Phuket is about 60 miles away. Add to that the gardens, the villas—some with private pool—the landscape, the spa, and the vast beach right at your doorstep. The eight hours of daily sunshine are free.
