At the end of a rocky path lined with clay lanterns and traditional Thai rain collection vases to the far northern tip of Ao Wong Duen, Vimarn Samed offers stylish accommodation with a range of options.
Clinging to the sides of a rocky finger of land, the romantic wood bungalows are designed to evoke a classic Thai style, with dark wood walls, gabled roofs and terraces with sea views. Though they look small from the outside, the rooms are quite airy and inviting. Furnishings are elegant, with soft white linens, Thai silk accents, dark wood four-poster beds, tall sliding French doors, high ceilings and windows that open directly to the sea breeze. Though less inspiring, standard and superior rooms are also stylish, spacious, spotless and comfortable, and all rooms come with air-con, WiFi, fridge, TV and complimentary breakfast served on a pale wood deck that protrudes over the waves. The man who we encountered at reception wasn't too helpful, though it seemed like he may have been filling in for someone. This is one of several smaller sister properties of Le Vimarn on Ao Phrao, and it offers the chance to experience some of the same style and comfort for a lot less money. All rates jump by 200 to 300 baht on weekends.
