9.3 out of 10

Arguably one of Thailand's finest chunks of beachfront property, this exclusive resort sprawls across huge grounds filled with banyan trees, flowers and meandering ponds. The two-storey, mushroom-domed pavilions are packed with antique furniture, locally sourced spa products and every mod con (including butler service). Some have private pools. There's also a top-notch spa, gym and no less than four restaurants.

There are yoga classes, tours in luxury speedboats and a first-rate spa, plus a range of kids-only activities, and family-sized villas. Nonguests are welcome for pricey but divine cuisine courtesy of the four on-site eateries. The Grotto plates up Mediterranean treats half-inside an illuminated cave fronting Hat Tham Phra Nang, where you might alternatively dine on upscale Thai fare at The Terrace.
