Great rooms and a pool
Set at the end of a quiet side lane on a somewhat out-of-the-way part of the island, Baan Tebpitak serves up well-equipped rooms and a swimming pool at rates that will make flashpackers happy.
Though we’ve never actually met a European staffer here or at the sister property, Promtong Mansion, we believe that one is involved. Rooms are spacious and everything is Western size, from the huge safes to exceptionally soft queen- or king-beds and bathrooms with partitioned showers that will fit even the roundest of beer bellies with ease. You also get a fridge, TV, free WiFi, desk, several windows, generic Thai art and either hardwood or tile floors. Family rooms come with extra beds and a small lounge area, but the hotel has a policy that only children age 12 and up can stay. Fish tanks punctuate the open-sided reception area, where you can order breakfast for 150 baht. The woman who showed us around was helpful and the rooms are great, but the kicker is a relatively large swimming pool rimmed by plus-size wooden loungers. The only potential disadvantage is a location that puts you a three long blocks from Naresuan Road, with few dining options in the immediate vicinity.
Situated on another side lane a half-kilometre further west up Pathon Road, Promtong Mansion is owned by the same group and has very similar rooms for the same prices; if staying here you can use the pool at Baan Tebpitak. Next to Baan Tebpitak is the Baan Baimai Boutique Hotel, which also has similar rooms and rates but no pool.
