Beachside Sand Sea Resort offers several accommodation types, including rooms in a building block next to a pool, cheaper standard timber garden bungalows, and beachfront options.
A good swimming pool with a children's section and pool bar are located next to the beach, as is a timber restaurant that serves consistently good Thai and Western food. The air-con rooms offer WiFi, TV, minibar and large bathrooms, most with rustic sunken stone baths. The larger suites offer Jacuzzis, and some have private pools. The small on-site spa offers a selection of treatments at reasonable prices. The deluxe seaview rooms in the second row offer good value, being set back for privacy, yet still with views of the beach. Shop online for a competitive rate as listed rates here are somewhat inflated. Sand Sea Resort is set off the main road with a sign to it easily visible south of New Hut, just a few minutes before the main turn off in to town.
