Backed by age-old rainforest with stunning views of the South China Sea, The Kasturi is a gorgeous new small luxury retreat on Chendor beach in Cherating. The arrival pavilion is your portal into another world.

The villas and suites are connected by an elevated pathway that runs through the forest, allowing you to walk or ride among the lush greenery with minimal disturbance to the area.
To date, there are only 19 keys in The Kasturi and the units comprise A-frame beachfront chalets, suites with ocean views and in the attic, plus a rooftop penthouse.
Each villa is luxuriously furnished with a sitting room that features contemporary furniture and original artworks from the Rimbun Dahan collection.
The inviting sitting room makes a great place to sit around with friends and family and talk, play games, or just bask in the beauty of the natural surrounds and enjoy the fresh sea breeze.
The pool deck is great for outdoor dining or just basking in the sun's warm rays.
In an effort to be sustainable in the resort's construction, every effort was made to compensate or avoid environmental damage - such as perforating buildings to allow large trees to continue growing instead of chopping them down.
Each villa enjoys their very own private swimming pool for guests to take a cool dip whenever they fancy.
Or, you could venture down to Cherating beach for some Vitamin Sea. If you're closer to the forest side, you might see hornbills or sea otters near the Pak Siah river; otherwise, head to the Rimbun Dahan turtle hatchery and see if you can spot any hatchlings.
After a long day of adventure, a shower is good to rinse off and relax - and how better to do so than in an outdoor shower garden? Don't worry - it's discreetly enclosed by stone walls.
Meals can be taken at the restaurants in the Kachapuri Main Building to the north of the chalets - it also houses the other suites and the penthouse. The Kenyang Restaurant features private dining areas such as this when you want an intimate meal with your nearest and dearest.
