Small family-run resort
There's something very pleasant about this small family-run resort located just down the road from the muay Thai stadium and a 10-minute walk from the beach.
Two lines of detached concrete bungalows face one another along a footpath with frangipani trees, birdcages, tall hanging lanterns and flower gardens leading back to a small swimming pool with a private feel at the rear of the grounds. Located towards the reception and restaurant area, fan rooms are small and a bit cave-like, though they do come with TVs and hot water. Bright and clean air-con villas with tile floors and big windows are available in a few sizes, all equipped with TVs, fridges, dark-wood furnishings, modern hot water bathrooms and patios with woven basket furniture for soaking up the peace and quiet. There's very little to differentiate the standard from the superior, but the deluxe gets you considerably more space and a partially open-air rain shower. Rates include breakfast served in the on-site Halal restaurant. Staff speaks limited English but there’s always someone around to help as best they can. Rates dropped slightly since our last visit, though they do go up by around 300 baht in peak season. For a bit more cash, nearby Aquamarine Resort is a similar choice.
