Thong Nai Pan Beach Resort, AKA Raiwin Resort and Spa, is so classy they had to name it twice.
In reality, the exotic new name is largely a pretext to charge a lot of money and compete with more luxurious upscale operations on this beach. To be fair, the peach-coloured concrete bungalows are quite spacious, well-equipped and immaculately clean. Nonetheless, this place is not as fancy as the name or the prices might suggest. Only three bungalows sit on the beach, while many more are packed together in rows heading inland, with a few bordering the small swimming pool. The restaurant and reception try to keep up the image as well, though the staff are less committed than one would expect. The beach restaurant has an impersonal, sterile feel and charges above average prices, although the food is quite good, specialising in steak and seafood.
