Cheapest rooms in town

What we say: 3.5 stars

Built in a gravel-paved clearing near a scraggly beach, Bara has an assortment of rooms shaded by palm trees and surrounded by flowers and vines. From the outside, the smaller fan rooms appear appealing, but inside they're grimy, dark and very musty with low ceilings and rough cement walls. The cold-water bathrooms resembled caves and were not much cleaner than an actual cave would be. Air-con bungalows are far better and represent decent value for the price. They're bright, roomy, and not as musty or dirty as the fan rooms. All bungalows have similar furnishings: firm double beds, small TVs with static-y Thai channels and attached bathroom with Western toilets and cold showers. The family that runs Bara lives in the house near the main road, and they're the only place in town advertising laundry service. We were told that some renovations and completely new rooms are in the works. Nearby Diamond Beach Bungalows is a similar choice in terms of the accommodation, but the staff there was really unwelcoming on our last visit.
