Fine choice for families
Italian-owned Sabai Resort has been around since 2000 and remains a good family option with lots of different room sizes to choose from.
Blue-roofed white concrete cottages are stacked close together around a small swimming pool and well-maintained gardens. Inside they’re rather plain but bright, clean and thoughtfully kept, with good linens and beds, tile floors, colourful Chinese fans on the walls and private porches out front. All rooms also come with hot water bathrooms, fridges, bureaus and small tables, while the family bungalows get you kitchens with stoves and your own private dining area. Even the more expensive rooms lack TVs, so head over to Noppharat Resort if that's a must. Included in the rates is a decent selection of set breakfasts, and the on-site restaurant opens in the evenings to serve authentic Italian fare, wines, cocktails and espresso. While there’s nothing about Sabai Resort that will really knock your socks off, it delivers with consistency and a relaxing atmosphere. A lot of Italians stay here, but it attracts Thais and other foreigners as well. Rates jump by around 300 baht in peak season.
