What we say: 4.5 stars

Sabai Corner sits on a prime beachfront position at the headland on the south end of Klong Jark. The 11-bungalow resort is run by an Italian expat who doesn't advertise, doesn't have a business card, and is perfectly happy to entertain the regulars that come year after year, who aren't really customers, so much as her friends. The bungalows here are exquisitely well-conceived. They are set on a hill amid rife, colourful tropical foliage, overlooking a bay. The rooms themselves, even the smaller ones, are a perfect embodiment of everything a bungalow should be -- wrought in pleasing, fragrant hard woods, comfy beds beneath banyans of mosquito netting, giving on to generous multi-tiered balconies hosting tables, benches and hammocks, ideal for lazing away the days and nights with your fellow voyagers. Don't even think about asking for air-con -- this is a fan-only joint, and proud of it. Families with young children will need to keep a close watch to avoid falls in the multi-levelled bungalows, especially the one with steep steps down to the toilet. Resort style services including sea-view massages on their open-air platform and boat trips may be arranged with the reception staff. Italian food is available (naturally) at the restaurant on premises, which attracts many outside guests. Their indifferent approach to food service is a bit off-putting, though the views and castaway feel of the place are hard to beat.
