Samet Cabana Villa

Classic family beach resort

What we say: 3.5 stars

With 60 rooms in various styles spread over a large flat area at the beach's northern end, long-running Samed Cabana is Wong Duen's most noticeable resort. The cheapest superior rooms are set in two-storey blocks in the garden at the far back end of the resort. We'd probably splurge for the poolside superiors, which make up for a lack of sea views with direct access to the resort's contemporary styled swimming pool. Leading straight up to the sand, seaview villas are bigger and have large terraces out front. These also have thatched roofs plopped on top of the actual, solid roof -- we guess that makes them cabanas? All rooms have a simple yet elegant design that incorporates rattan floor mats and wall hangings, soft beds on wood frames, polished concrete floors, hardwood furnishings and basin sinks in bright bathrooms. They also have all of the mod-cons you'd expect, and the restaurant is known to serve some of the better Western food around. While this is certainly a comfortable choice, we'd still gravitate to the quieter resorts at the other end of the beach. Rates drop by 300 baht in June, September and October.
