The closest spot to the east of Thong Sala pier, Phrueksa has a slightly classier feel than other setups on this stretch of beach and the swimming pool is handy as the beach isn't great for swimming.
A sundeck and large sandy zone border the beach and are ideal for sunbathers, but a retaining wall detracts from the beauty of the location. Phrueksa's beachfront rooms are ugly concrete units whose bright pastel paint-jobs do anything but blend in with the surrounds, but they're clean and well-maintained. The remainder of the bungalows are simple island-style wooden huts spread in rows around the large palm grove. These too are clean and spacious, certainly sufficient for the price, and they're larger and better placed than the newer concrete air-con rooms.
