Ban Thai Sangthian

This small, tightly packed resort at the centre of the sand is designed to mimic a traditional Ayutthaya-style Thai estate, with elegant wood structures surrounding a courtyard of potted plants and tables.

Standard rooms are located within the ground-floor concrete foundation that holds up the teak wood rooms, and we found these musty and best avoided. In the midrange, the wood rooms are among Samet's more romantic and unique places to stay. These are designed in a sort of down-to-earth Thai style, with high ceilings, dark wood floors, walls and beams, simple floral prints and comfortable beds with traditional northern Thai silk covers. Air-con, fridge, TV and hot water come standard in all rooms. If it's available, we liked the plainer, cheaper stand-alone wood bungalow that's oddly placed off to one side of the courtyard. Though limited English is spoken, staff do their best to welcome. The resort's traditional wooden gateway leads directly to a small but inviting patch of beachfront.
