The long-running Viking Holiday Resort changed hands in 2015 and a new English-speaking manager appears to be doing a fine job with it.

You still get a Thai-Nordic theme to go with thoughtfully kept rooms tucked behind a seaside restaurant.

Built close together, two rooms are situated in each of the four concrete buildings. Connecting doors make these great options for families. The room that we checked out was well kept and done up with hanging seashells, a painting of pink orchids, tile floors, fridge, air-con, WiFi, small TV and simple hot-water wet bathroom. It was on the dark side due to just one window, and you don’t get a sea view thanks to the resort’s reception area and dining terrace hogging the limited seafront space that leads up to a break wall. Even so, the rooms have a certain charm and the new owners dropped the prices to ensure good value compared to other resorts on Ao Sang Thian.

Guests can use one of the many cushioned lounge chairs for free, and a beach appears below the break wall at low tide. The restaurant serves a decent mix of Western and Thai food along with great smoothies. We also appreciated manager Tick’s positive attitude: she was friendly and very responsive when we inquired as walk-ins.
