Rustic cabins in an idyllic spot
This isolated nature-oriented resort is reached by following a side road that shoots north off of the main eastward road.
It's a quiet, semi-forested spot that reminded us of the campgrounds with cabins that you'll find at many Thai national parks. With plenty of hammocks and loungers, the beach is interspersed with rocky outcrops, and a quirky concrete statue of a crab guards a long wooden pier that juts over the clear and calm water. Relatively spacious log cabins and stilted wood bungalows come with large roofed decks with tables and chairs. The cheapest rooms are rustic but comfortable, with hardwood floors, several screened windows, soft beds and basic cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets. TVs in all rooms are an unexpected touch. Seafront family rooms have three beds to go with larger TVs and hot water bathrooms. The place is run by a laid back Thai family that offers home-cooked meals and WiFi in the charmingly dilapidated restaurant. The resort shuts down during the rainy season.
