    Devoted and professional staff, well-kept, lovely property, terrific food. World-class SCUBA diving. Great care taken to respect environment. Spa with Thai massage is excellent. Local cultural and ornithological tours. Opportunity to swim with whale sharks. I would heartily recommend this property: well worth the detour.
