Koh Kaew Village 2

While this place is comparable to nearby Moss Man and White Sand, it won us over due to rooms with a bit more character, a friendlier receptionist and, most of all, closer proximity to the sand of Haad Sai Kaew.

The nondescript guesthouse is situated right behind the national park offices, close enough to the beach that you can hear the waves crashing. The immediate surrounds aren't too attractive, with a muddy parking area for national park vehicles and the rear ends of beach resorts obstructing any potential view of the sea, but hey, that's why the village costs less. Thoughtfully kept rooms are set back behind reception and on the upper floors, and each has colourful framed photos of Thai beach scenes to go with little tables, big windows, semi-private outdoor terraces, air-con, TVs, and fridges. The bathrooms we checked out were a bit grotty and dark, though that was the case with most of the village guesthouses. Overall this isn't a bad option if you want to be real close to Haad Sai Kaew while saving a little cash. The original Koh Kaew Village Guesthouse is located down a side street in the village, but there's nothing to set it apart from the pack.
