Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Choeng Mon Beach and its neighbour, Laem Samrong, host mostly upscale resorts with a few spots in the flashpacker range. Nearby Plai Laem and Thongson offer similarly priced digs with a more isolated feel.
Choeng Mon Beach
Choeng Mon Beach is a rather pretty beach with a fair stretch at each end that isn't totally developed -- most of the resorts, from luxury digs to the cheapies run from the centre to the northern end of the bay. The quietest part of the beach remains at the far south-eastern end close to opposite Ko Farn Noi which sits just offshore.
