Lonely Beach And Bailan Bay

Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

The best places to stay in Lonely Beach are not actually located on the beach, but rather a short walk south along the rocky coast and in the village. Though Lonely Beach itself is beautiful, we weren't very impressed by the resorts found along the sand. Nearby Bailan Bay boasts some solid accommodation options removed from the party scene.

North Lonely Beach (the beach itself)

On Lonely Beach itself, a handful of resorts are equipped to satisfy everyone from backpackers to luxury-seekers, though none are anything to write home about. We opted not to list upscale Bhumiyana Resort after their staff made it passively obvious that our baseball cap and baggy shorts were not up to their standards. Note that Siam Hut Resort has received several reports of theft over the years; so keep that in mind before taking one of their crummy old beach huts.

South Lonely Beach (the rocky coast and village)

Most of the "Lonely Beach" accommodation is found along the rocky coastline further south from the actual beach and off the nearby main drag. Practically every restaurant and minimart in this area has a few cheap rooms for rent. Budget travellers should have no trouble finding a cheap, basic room here even in peak season, but keep in mind that the party atmosphere and ear-popping music often continues into the wee morning hours.

Bailan Bay

Quieter than neighbouring Lonely Beach, but without the great stretch of sand, Ao Bailan has some solid budget to midrange options, some along the rocky coastline and others on the inland side of the road. The only place where you can actually stay on the beach is Bailan Beach Resort, but anyone is free to enjoy this sliver of sand for free. Overall, the quality and value of accommodation in Bailan is exceptional.
