    Hi all,

    Seeking your advice here. We will be arriving in TNP mid August and are looking for a beach bungalow.

    We are a family of 4 and after speaking with both Baan Pan Buri and Star Huts they are able to offer us either an Ocean Wing Bungalow at Baan Pan Buri or a Triple Hut at Star Huts. (they can bring in an extra mattress for our 2nd child)

    Does anyone have any experience of either of these places with a family, we'd really like to take the option that gets us as close to the beach as possible.

    Thanks in advance for your help, keen to book something up as it seems really busy in August!

    I prefer Star Huts. It is run by a very nice Thai family. They have kids of their own that run around in the restaurant. Also, their large bungalows are directly on the beach. Baan Panburi's are set back a bit, but all at both places are on land at the beach. So easily accessible.

    Post above is very very odd. Both are right on the beach, side by side. No room is further than 30 yards from the sand in either resort.
    They are exactly the same. Star Huts are owned by the same owners of Baan Panburri - they were part of Baan Panburi but are now leased to the Star Huts. Generally speaking Baan Panburri seem to provide a better service and the rooms are supposed to be a little nicer - but also a little bit more expensive.
    I would say that the Ocean view which is more expensive is probably a waste of time. I'd get one set a little further back - no kidding about the 30 yards thing! The ocean view are pointless as every room is close to the beach anyway, you'll feel ripped off! Plus there is a bar rihgt in front of the ocean view and the restaurant in front of the other... They are however larger so may be the only option.
    I stayed in Baan Panburri last year, meant to stay for a few days but ended up staying two weeks. I don't think you'll care wheich you choose once you get there, they are more or less the same hotel. You'll love it, enjoy!!
