We had a very relaxing stay at The Pines. The first things to delight us were the shimmering sea views and the inviting large pool. The wooden interiors gave the villa a unique edge over others, and although simplicity rules at The Pines it did feel very luxurious indeed.

A family of four, we had plenty of space to sprawl, swim and socialise. Our teenage daughter enjoyed the entertainment room and she even had a go on the treadmill in the gym. The highlight for her was the pool where she seemed to spend hours ducking and darting around until the midday sunshine propelled her into the air-conditioned shade of the entertainment room to catch up with her buddies online.

We enjoyed the space available at the villa. Social evenings would be spent chatting in and around the pool, looking at the impressive book collection or just staring in wonder at the view with Gin and Tonic in hand. The pool and the sala overlooking the beach were our favourite places during the day and at sunset. The villa had ample shade so reclining on the sun loungers was something we could do for the majority of the day, reading, snoozing and enjoying the gentle sea breeze.

Having direct access to the beach was also a real hit. We enjoyed an early morning walk together as a family and watched the traditional fishing boats coming in with their fresh catch. We also snorkelled out to some rocks that were very close to the beach and saw an array of beautiful reef fish. A couple of colourful butterfly fish and a moorish idol played around and we saw some large rainbow-coloured parrot fish too.

All of the bedrooms were comfortable, and we had enough space for our luggage and clothes. I must say we fell in love with the large bathrooms. What a luxury, especially the stand-alone tub in the master.

The food was phenomenal, we didn’t make it out for dinner as the cook kept feeding us delicious food. The grilled salmon and Greek salad were a perfect combination and all the Thai delicious were a hit with the kids. The sea air made us want to go to bed early, but not before we did some stargazing. The lights are programmed to go off in the garden and beach-lawn areas at a certain time if no one is using the area, so due to the lack of light pollution we saw the sky at night as it should be, a vortex of swirling galaxies and shooting stars. This place is very special indeed.

Highlights

The pool and the view of the sea are terrific. The villa’s artwork is also notable, by Shanghai artist Ann Niu, especially the piece adorning the wall space of the lounge area and also the one in the Master Suite. Also, the books located in all the rooms are carefully chosen to inspire any guest.

Surprises

There is plenty of space for large groups, but families with young children will need to keep a close eye as the pool does not have a shallow section and the beach access is close by.

Being able to reunite as a family during the pandemic in this beautiful place was absolutely magic. The scenery is soothing for the soul, the service was outstanding and we loved everyone of the staff. The food was amazing and the decoration for New Year's Eve so delightful. Big thank you to Khun Nawarat for organizing everything. We will recommend the Pines to our friends.

Impressions for this trip here - Impressed with the service and attention to detail. Everyone liked the food that the chef made. It was very delicious. Eva (my daughter) loved all the food and loved swimming in the pool. Must also mention the high level of cleanliness. We will come back again for sure.

We are the first guests to stay at The Pines! It has been a memorable experience. We love the place and the scene of the view in the evening. The house is impeccable. Love the decoration! The staff extremely well-trained and the food is as good as a 5-star restaurant. If you enjoy a quiet sunset and the sound of the waves, then come to The Pines. Congratulations!
