All the restaurants and massage places next to the Marriott are in full swing now with some finishing touches being made and there are still a few due to open shortly.
Farmai is now opening next to the Andaman between their restaurant building and massage hut. They are working away on the interior which shouldn't take long and Gecko man is alreay set up there. The beach seems to be fairly clean and tidy and I would expect further beautification in the weeks to come.
There is also a solitary beach bar a short walk to the left of the Marriott. Massage huts and a bar
with what appears to be a restaurant being built.
