This reminds me of a friend of mine who is a big fan of all the Japanese animation movies by Hayao Miyazaki 宮崎駿, one of whose movies is called "Howl's Moving Castle (哈爾移動城堡)". With the lights on and the wooden legs, it looks like it can move by itself.

1. The entrance.
2. The main building and its drive way front yard.
3. The lobby hall - this design is good to let the cool sea breeze in.
4. The reception - staff are very friendly and helpful.
5. The resort promotes a number of art pieces made by the students from Hua Hin University. Very encouraging.
Found out quite many interesting things in the room. Photo 2: place the miniature broom on the bed to indicate replacing the bed linen. Photo 3: A happy sign of "Do not disturb". BTW, at their turn down service, a book would be placed on the bedside. Check photo 5: I like the way they make things smooth and round. So comfortable to sit in the water.
On the 2nd floor, that's the pool and resting area. When I was on the 2nd floor, the white patio reminds me of Villa Maroc in Pranburi (Hua Hin). The pool looks a bit small but it's not in area. It's a 5x5m (25 sq m) pool as compared to most pool villas having a 3x7m (21 sq m). There is a fridge and a coffee maker (with beans ready) in the resting area. Very thoughtful. The resort was almost full and the clientele is more for local people (staying in villas) and foreign guests (staying in deluxe rooms in the main wing).

The room is pretty ambient. I like the way they have the green surrounding the bed room. The bath room is very spacious with some simple design, in a very clean white color. It looks simple but very well equipped with everything needed from a nice JBL mini sound system to some fine bath amenities by Thann. There are some swaying white cotton curtain to let the natural breeze in. This is the real natural setting. Very comfortable.
