Blending seamlessly into the Old Town atmosphere, Mango House has a handful of very spacious seaside apartments with hammocks strung to huge roofed wooden decks overlooking the sea.
At night the ocean gushes directly beneath the teakwood floors, which some find romantic but light sleepers might not be too keen on. Tastefully decorated with plants in ceramic vases, soft lanterns, axe pillows, Chinese silks, kitchen tables, high ceilings, several windows and bright modern art to contrast the dark brown hardwood walls and floors, all of the suites have fan-cooled bedrooms with springy beds draped in mosquito nets. The bedrooms are partitioned from living areas that come with small TVs, kitchenettes and hot-water bathrooms with glass basin sinks and separate shower rooms. Another stilted wood house was recently built in the traditional style and has a large living area to go with two bathrooms and a master bedroom. All but one of the apartments is designed to accommodate four, and multiple suites can be combined to form one large family house. The Mango House also has an inviting restaurant and bar out by the road. Rates jump by 500 baht from mid December to mid January.
