When the large steel gates are closed upon you it gives you a slightly ominous feeling...
It is called a Reserve for a good reason. You and your wallet are closely guarded. This means that security is good but if you want to stroll out to other restaurants and massage places it does require an effort.
The grounds are truly beautiful and the service level great (with a butler concept). It is a big place so they offer to take you everywhere with golf carts. The rooms are huge. We stayed in an Ocean Pavilion which had a bathroom larger than my first apartment.
The architecture is a bit strange. To me it felt more Indian than Thai.
We did not go to the spa. The traditional Thai massage there was 10 times more expensive than on the beach north of the hotel where you can listen to the sound of the ocean as you have your treatment (I am sure the spa is fantastic - but 10 times better...).
Breakfast was good but the dinner dining options did not meet the standard of the hotel. After being disappointed once we then escaped every evening to other options.
We booked a package on their website called Stay 3 nights and pay for 2.
Would I go back? Maybe if the dining options improved.More
