Tantawan is a super laid-back place with a comfortable atmosphere.
A two-level restaurant and bar with mellow music and cushy seating make for a cool spot to hang out, and there are large hammocks and plenty of seating around the good-sized swimming pool. The beach is a bit of a trek, but it's easy to spend the whole day here relaxing. The wooden bungalows are of varying size and are relatively simple but well-kept and comfortable. While the smallest huts are affordable, the larger units here are a tad overpriced, not offering air-con or much else than more space and furniture. The French and Thai owners are very hospitable and their restaurant, though a little pricey, offers a nice break form the norm with French and other European specialties. Definitely a groovy spot of you're travelling in a group or can get into one of the cheaper rooms.
