Sinsamut Guesthouse

Compared to its similarly priced neighbours, Sai Kaew Villa and Ploy Talay, Sinsamut is a budget diamond on Diamond Beach.

It's also one of the quirkier spots on the island. A ground-floor reception/restaurant area feels tired and cluttered, but that's okay because the owners have obviously funneled profits into upgrading the rooms instead. After climbing a flight of stairs, you can't help but notice the four adorable wooden fan bungalows clustered around a lawn with little ceramic gnomes and mushrooms. It feels a bit like you've entered Munchkin land in the Wizard of Oz. It almost seems like the whole thing is just there for show, but the small wood cottages are reasonably comfortable. Each has a simple mattress on the floor draped in mosquito net, a tiny hot water bathroom and an old fridge and TV -- nice bonuses given the price and location. This mini bungalow courtyard is surrounded by two three-storey buildings attached by a walkway. Air-con rooms in either are the same price, so be sure to opt for one of the newer rooms which are bright and pleasant, with colourful pastel walls and two twin beds that can be pushed together. While the older air-con rooms come with the same fixings -- TV, fridge, WiFi -- they're considerably darker and more run down. At time of writing, what appear to be pricier air-con rooms were being constructed downstairs. The laid back family in charge also runs a boat tour company.
