Out of several small flashpacker-range resorts found off the main road through Bailan, we’d go with Kamrai for the value on rooms that offer a lot more than some of the pricier neighbours.

Set on a quiet piece of land that slopes gently downhill to a small swimming pool, rooms come in a few one-bedroom concrete bungalows along with a couple of smaller “studios” in part of the owner’s house closer to the road. Not too stylish but clean and functional interiors feature spring mattresses, fan and air-con in the bedrooms and hot water in the typical Asian wet bathrooms.

Though studios will only do if you don’t mind staying within steps of the main road through Bailan, the bungalow also bag you a separate living room with another fan; flatscreen TV with English channels; safe; dining table; larger-than-usual fridge and kitchen equipped with everything except a hot plate. Seven tinted windows can be opened to let air flow past the blue drapes and thoughtful extras include curtains out on the porches, light blankets on lawn chairs to keep the mozzies off and brooms and mops for guests who like to keep it tidy.

The pool is a welcome addition—if only some trees would appear to block the nearby concrete wall from sight. Kamrai does not have beach access; to reach the coast you’ll have to walk through another property such as Bailan Beach Resort. Kamrai does not have a restaurant but several are found nearby and the accommodating French owner can cook breakfasts on request. You’ll see him watering the garden as a cleaner does a thorough job on the rooms.

Across the road, Lazy Republique and St Tropez—both French run as well—also have relaxing atmospheres and solid, if less equipped, bungalows for similar rates as Kamrai. Further south behind the Happy Turtle, Lucky Gecko Garden is a small Austrian-run spot with comfy bungalows in the same price range. At the centre of the village, South African-run Harley Moon Hideaway has a striking red-tile pool and attentive owners; though we’re not sure its rooms are worth the prices when considering all you get at Kamrai for less cash.

In this flashpacker price range in Bailan, another option would be to check out the more basic but still comfortable rooms at Elephant Bay Resort and Green Cottage, both of which have swimming pools and share a rocky shore.
