Ao Thian Ok

Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

Budgeteers who prefer a secluded locale should be happy in Haad Sai Daeng. Those after comforts in a similarly off-the-radar setting might check out Ao Taa Chaa or Ao Thian Ok.

Ao Thian Ok

The beach itself is home to just two resorts only one of which is budget. A third perches on the headland overlooking the bay. The main stretch of the beach is owned by one upscale resort, which restricts access to non guests. This bay is easier to get to than neighbouring Haad Sai Daeng, making it the better choice for staying in a quiet locale while still being in reach of a night out in the busier areas.
