Purple bungalows in paradise

What we say: 4 stars

Suchanaree goes against the grain of Ao Suan Yai's upmarket trend, offering a handful of simple dark violet wooden bungalows with thatched roofs scattered amid tropical gardens and mini-lagoons. The rooms come with soft mattresses on woven bamboo floors, mosquito nets, fans, cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets and decent front porches. Both the bungalows and the relaxed little restaurant with tables and a book nook are very close to the sand, but this area can get noisy by day thanks to the boats that come and go from the nearby pier. The staff members we met were very welcoming and friendly, and a guest told us the food is good too. If Suchanaree is full and you don't feel like heading over to Ao Kao, Happy Days has log cabins that are a bit overpriced (around 1,500 baht in high season) further up the beach.
