Nestled on a comfortable beach chair, I lost myself in the symphony of colors that painted the sky as the sun bid its daily farewell. The serenity of the moment was a testament to the tranquility that the resort effortlessly provided.

One of the most delightful aspects of my stay was the resort’s commitment to offering delectable vegetarian options at its restaurants – Jaras, Pinto, and 333 at the Beach. These dining establishments seamlessly blend traditional Thai flavours with modern culinary techniques, offering an array of tempting vegetarian dishes.
