Baan Chan Lay’s pointed-roof concrete bungalows had been upgraded with fresh ice-blue paint and some new appliances since our previous visit, when the property was called Salak Petch Guesthouse.

Most rooms come two to a building on either side of a garden reaching to a common patio beside the river. Standards are small but clean with creature comforts like fridge, TV, air-con, WiFi and hot water in the wet bathrooms. You also get proper comforters on firm beds raised off tile floors.

Set closer to the estuary, the family room we saw had a two-level design featuring a pair of double beds down below along with cushioned wood furniture and kitchenette and counter space up top. These are done up in the same blue-and-white sea cottage theme that marks all interior spaces at Baan Chan Lay.

A welcoming Thai woman who speaks clear English now runs the small resort alongside her adorable son, who donned a Superman outfit when we passed through. They offer a small cafe just across the lane and free kayak use for guests. Paddle for around 100 metres to reach the broad bay itself, or head inland to explore mangrove forests and fishing shacks.

Relax by the water.

The cute little resort is also within easy walking distance of other eateries in the part of Baan Salak Phet that extends on stilts above the water. It’s a fascinating area to explore.

Rates we saw for Baan Chan Lay on were a bit higher than those we were quoted as walk-ins. If you don’t mind spending a bit more, the neighbouring Mangrove Hideaway is also a good choice.
