Laem Son 1 offer cheap bungalows on the beach in what feels like a private area of white sand.
From the outside these timber bungalows look good and the inside is fine if you are looking for a basic no frills bungalow with a mattress, shelf and cold water shower. It does have two hammocks on the balcony though which is great if you are sharing a room. The rooms are on the small side but the balcony is decent size and the view is worth it. The restaurant is very chilled and had a few backpackers sitting around on laptops when we were there in low season. Laem Son 1 is on the beach and can be reached from the coast road by turning left (if coming from Thong Sala) either before or after the main Seethanu town. There are signs if you look for them that take you to a loop road to Laem Son 1 and 2, Seaview Rainbow and Zen.
