Bulon Marina Resort

Rustically romantic

What we say: 3.5 stars

Spread over a hillside behind the school and an easy walk to the best beach, Marina certainly has the most eye-catching bungalows around. Standing on tall wooden stilts with large porches equipped with wooden chairs, tables and seashells, the log-cabin style bungalows have high thatch ceilings that come all the way down to form the sidewalls as well. The spacious rooms come with super-comfy king-size beds on knobby wooden frames with soft linens draped in pink mosquito nets and fans, though the generator only keeps them running from 18:00 to 23:00. While otherwise open to the elements, the tall windows have wooden bars to stop would-be thieves from climbing in, and they're draped in white cotton curtains in addition to thick silk throws for privacy. Simple cold-water bathrooms have sinks and bucket-flush toilets. Floors are composed of smooth but thin wooden planks with gaps that allow critters to wander inside -- opt for Bulone or Pansand resorts if that freaks you out. If you prefer the rustic life, these bungalows have a definite romantic quality. The dreadlocked staff members are laid back, perhaps a bit lazy, but have always been welcoming to us. Prices went up since our last visit, making the value slightly questionable compared to other options.
