Tonsak would be edged out by other midrange options if it were on Ao Wong Duen, but on Haad Sai Kaew, it's one of the best.
Centrally located near where the main village road meets Haad Sai Kaew, the small resort has a range of log cabins spread relatively close together amid raised wooden walkways and lots of tropical foliage. The older superior rooms are attached in rows while the new deluxe houses are free-standing, but all appeared well-kept and comfortable with large front porches, wide swing-open windows, TVs, fridges, air-con and WiFi. With visible knots in the smooth logs that form the walls, rooms have a pleasantly rustic quality. Complimentary breakfast is taken on a wide wooden terrace with sea views. We found staff to be very polite, and the whole place has a relaxing ambiance.
