Ao Noi Na

Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

Stretching along the north coast of Samet, Ao Noi Na is a favourite of Thai holidaymakers who don't seem to mind splashing out for a pricey resort -- the further west you go, the quieter it gets. Nearby in the village of Nadan you'll find several budget guesthouses that will do the trick if you don't mind being a 10-minute walk from the surf.

Ao Noi Na

Until you reach Mooban Talay, the beach is limited to short sandy patches due to large rock outcroppings, piers and buildings. Towards the village, some of these stretches are covered in litter, though Bar & Bed's lovely private beach is a welcome exception. We found many of Ao Noi Na's resorts to be overpriced, especially given that the scenery here doesn't compare to the east coast.

Nadan (Samet village)

Air-con rooms for under 1,000 baht aren't hard to come by in the village, even during high season. We've listed a few of our favourites, but there are many more and good deals can be scored on weekdays.
