Best known for its restaurant attracting crowds of Thai tourists on weekends, Salak Phet Seafood doubles as a resort with an array of comfortable wood-and-concrete rooms built above the bay.

If you’re booking online, the cheapest rooms will probably be “deluxe doubles” (we’d call them standards) set in motel-style wooden buildings with an outlook to a wall or, for an extra 500 baht, the sea. The sea-view editions also come with front decks and glass doors, but without shades drawn you’ll have no privacy from people on the stilted walkway or eating in the restaurant.

Comfortable interiors.

The “junior VIP” rooms in another attached concrete building with wood-shingle roof bag you added space, sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows and somewhat more private positions, for 1,200 baht more. At the far end of the property and with an outlook over the open bay from large decks, the best rooms come in sleek Balinese-style villas, complete with Jacuzzi tubs.

In addition, we were offered an odd but extremely good-value room with minimal space in a newly built concrete structure out back on land. There are only a couple of rooms found here and we noticed a bit of water on the tiled floor, but we can’t argue with the 500-baht price tag for a room with fridge, air-con and TV. It seemed an anomaly, though, and we’ve never seen it available online, but worth asking about in person if you’re on a budget.

Apart from those back-building rooms, they all feature hardwood floors, firm beds with quality linens, TVs, WiFi, fridges, kettles and good-size hot-water bathrooms. Decoration is minimal but the simply furnished rooms do have some understated style to them.

Salak Phet Seafood is a long-running institution on the eponymous bay, offering boat and fishing tours along with kayaks and of course the fresh (and pricey) seafood served in a huge stilted pavilion. It’s a fairly large operation and service can be hit or miss, though we’ve received decent help from staffers who have been working here for most of their lives.

A short walk past Salak Phet Seafood takes you to a couple of smaller spots with a few rooms for rent. Sang Arun Seafood has cheaper digs and more of a homestay atmosphere, while German/Thai-run Island View Resort is a favourite of sailors thanks to the boat moorings and small air-con rooms for 1,200 baht.
