What Phuketwan says:
Not much springs to mind when hunger intrudes on the road between Khao Lak and Ranong, just this oasis a little south of Kuraburi. It's a great place to interrupt a road trip with a meal or even a cup of coffee and a walk around the estate. The food is excellent and the views are spectacular. Around the lake sit 32 villas, some tucked away in forest glades. The restaurant is cheerful and up high, overlooking the lake. The Greenview has the feeling of a country club, with comfortable cushions on sturdy chairs. Slate and rocks and glass-topped tree trunk tables set the style. Nothing plastic here. Etchings of exotic flowers decorate the walls and the food is all fresh and inexpensive fare. On the road, we stopped to buy mangosteen at 12 baht a kilo and ate them as we drove. What a way to go. The countryside between Khao Lak and Ranong is some of the finest in the south. But if you find yourself hankering for a decent feed along the way, this is the place to stop. Here, your green tossed salad comes with an even greener hillside view. The accommodation is solid, quiet, and great value, too.

How to find it: About 20 kilometres south of Kuraburi town centre, fairly well signposted, on the right hand side as you head towards Kuraburi from Phuket.

Parking: Large car park out the front.

Just a suggestion: Would it be possible to give coordinates for places like these? Every GPS or GPS-enabled mobile phone tells you the exact location, and it's a snap to find a place with these details, using a Navi, Google Earth, Google Maps, Mapjack, whatever. Example: 7????53'27.83"N, 98????15'54.65"E and you be at one of my favourite beaches :-)
