Le Blanc Samed Resort

Decent rooms, good location

What we say: 3 stars

We were a tad confused after wandering into Le Blanc's cluster of villas set around a garden. There's no sign (as far as we could see) that actually says the resort's name, and a tiny reception desk was hidden behind the restaurant, which wasn't open. Staff also seemed erratic on the whole, though the man who showed us around had a casual, almost cheeky attitude that we found refreshing after the uber-polite receptionists who greeted us at many of Haad Sai Kaew's resorts. Fake wood panel floors in the spacious villas are a big miss, but the rooms are bright, clean and equipped with air-con, TV, safe, fridge and cushy beds. All rooms have sliding glass doors that open on to wood plank decks. It was unclear to us whether the so-called “Thip @ Le Blanc Resort” located just behind the original rooms is part of the same resort or somewhat separate. In any case, the Thip section has similar but newer free-standing villas stretching all the way to the northern side of Laem Yai peninsula and tiny Ao Luk Yon beach. While these are a little further from the action, they enjoy a quiet atmosphere with lawn furniture perched above the sea under shady trees. Le Blanc has similar rooms over on Ao Phai, under the banner “Le Blanc Vintage Resort”, not that there actually is a banner there either.
