Thanks to solid value and attentive service, the Bell House stands out among a cluster of flashpacker-range options packed between the bigger midrange resorts.

Photo of Bell House
Located a three-minute stroll from the beach and with easy access to the island’s main road, the property has a small collection of freestanding concrete bungalows and rooms in an attached building, all facing a tiny lawn. The standard room that we peeked into was cramped but clean and adequate for a solo traveller or low-maintenance couple. The firm double bed takes up most of the space, placed under a painting of a blue whale that perhaps could help you dream of something bigger. A small wet bathroom with hot water includes only a toilet and shower, with the sink built into a counter out in the main room along with a fridge, TV and tiny safe. If you can swing it, the brick superior bungalows offer a lot more space, queen-size beds, plentiful windows on all sides, large bathrooms with partitioned showers and private terraces with wood chairs. All rooms have a straightforward design with white or ice-blue walls and tiles. Don’t let Bell House’s flashy logo fool you into mistaking this for a boutique hotel.

Though not overly friendly, the owners pay more attention to their guests than at the larger neighbouring resorts. They serve basic American breakfast in a small open-air roofed common area with free WiFi.

Bell House’s rooms offer more bang for your baht when compared to the similarly characterless rooms at neighbouring Tom Pizza, Green Place and Nice and Easy. If Bellhouse is full, any of these larger options could get the job done if you’re set on staying in this crowded but convenient section of Ao Wong Duean. For a bit more cash, the neighbouring Seahorse 2 has some Thai-style wood bungalows. All of these places are stacked so close together that finding your room can feel like navigating a labyrinth.

The rates listed on Bellhouse’s website are considerably higher than what we were quoted as walk-ins and have seen through booking sites. Do however expect rates to spike at peak times of year.
