Offering solid value on simple air-con rooms, the Chinese-Thai family behind Lin Bungalow has done a great job of preserving the natural look of a pretty beachfront at the mouth of Khlong Prao’s southern estuary.

Made of concrete and equipped with fridges, TVs, WiFi, fans in addition to air-con and hot-water showers in attached wet bathrooms, most rooms come in attached buildings (two rooms to a building) within steps of the beach. Brushed concrete walls rather than concrete painted beige mark the newer and pricier of these rooms, but the older rooms we checked out appeared well kept if you don’t mind the dated appliances.

Two freestanding concrete bungalows also sit further back near the canal and these were full when we passed through; we were told they’re similar to the beachside rooms but lack TVs and fridges. Most other rooms are suitable for families, with connecting doors and multiple beds in some. While the rooms are fine, the setting is really what makes Lin special.

Only ten rooms join the lawns, fruit trees, massage pavilions and a beach restaurant covering one side of the spacious property. Pine-like son trees tangle with rattan palms and umbrella trees along the idyllic beachfront. Here you’ll find bamboo tables and Euro-size loungers with thick cushions.

To the rear flows the clean river where you can step across a floating footbridge—no rails so keep an eye on small children—to reach Blue Lagoon’s atmospheric restaurant on the opposite bank. Though Blue Lagoon beats Lin based on services, style, activities and range of accommodation, it lacks that gorgeous beachfront. Staffers we’ve met at Lin have been direct but helpful.

Depending on your viewpoint, the potential disadvantage of Lin is a location that can’t be reached by road and is very quiet—you’ll have to park at Blue Lagoon and walk across the river from there. Alternately you could walk south down the beach and cut through one of the upscale resorts to reach a lane that emerges on to the main road just shy of Kai Bae. Good luck averting the security guards if going that way.
