Cha-Ba Bungalows and Art Gallery

Friendly and funky

What we say: 3.5 stars

Not to be confused with the lavish Cha-Da Resort, Cha-Ba rises from the centre of Khlong Dao in a blaze of colour and quirkiness that includes two brontosaurus statues and a giant concrete whale's tale. Things are no less funky in the tightly packed section of concrete bungalows set just back from the beach. Each is painted bright orange, purple or green, with interesting wall murals to go with hammocks on spacious front terraces. The fan room that we checked out had a colourful papier mache "chandellier" hung from the high ceiling. Also painted in bright colours, the cement interior walls have rounded edges. Even the cheapest rooms come with fridges, simple hot water bathrooms and comfortable beds on raised polished-concrete platforms. In lieu of a swimming pool, Cha-Ba has a beachfront art gallery and painting studio. Not surprisingly, the staff are artistic, youthful and laid back. Prices drop by 300 baht in November and March.
