If you love bamboo

What we say: 3.5 stars

Set just north of the rocks that divide Khlong Nin and Khlong Tob beaches, Riversand has one of the more interesting locations in this area. The restaurant is built on a platform atop boulders connected by roped wooden walkways that lead to phenomenal views over both of the beaches and out towards Ko Haa. The resort itself looks something like a Polynesian village at first glance, with tall stilted bungalows made entirely from thin wooden logs for the frames and floors, whole bamboo poles for the front walls and thatch for the high roofs and side walls. These are not for those who want creature comforts or get freaked at the sight of tropical creatures, but they should satisfy anyone seeking a more rustic or "exotic" experience in a bungalow that's perched right over the sand. Each room is fan cooled, making the value a bit questionable, and comes with partially open-air bathroom to go with comfy king-size bed on raised platform. The rooms receive good air-flow thanks to the natural materials, and spacious front porches come with two quality hammocks. All rooms are the same, with rates based on proximity to the beach.
