What we say: 3.5 stars

The island's original resort has evolved a lot over the years, literally dismantling and rebuilding its various structures in accordance with erosion and low-season storm surges that have occasionally claimed entire bungalows. Today it's a hotch potch of new and old standalone bungalows and villas overlooking a gorgeous stretch of the main beach. Some of the newer rooms are built over rocks that separate this beach from Panka Noi Bay. The family-run resort had installed a small wind turbine since our last visit, ensuring that this is the only option on Bulon for 24-hour power. That's great, but we feel their decision to install air-con units in nearly all rooms was unfortunate. The few remaining fan bungalows now fetch 3,000 baht from mid December through March -- quite pricey despite the large decks, clean appearance and spacious interiors. All rooms have several windows, hardwood floors, quality beds and bathrooms, and the newest wood cottages look very sharp. Nearly all rooms also afford direct sea views and are designed to accommodate families. A buffet breakfast and WiFi are included in all rates. Despite the recent spike in prices, the resort still fills up with mostly Scandinavian and mainland European families in high season, so advanced reservations are a good idea. The resort offers a minimart, massage, coffee shop and boat tours and bookings, so you're likely to use it for something even if not staying here. Knock 1,000 baht off the rates listed here in November and April.
