Siam Beach is the large and long-running resort occupying most of the real beachfront on Bang Bao and if we stayed here it would be specifically for the setting, which really is sensational.

Six forgettable room types are categorised by the letters A, B, C, D, T and H. We guess the H stands for “Huh?” The A bungalows are not acing any room inspections—one that we peeked into gets a C- for upkeep. These have no real front-facing windows, a tragic design flaw because they face one of the 10 most attractive beaches we’ve found in Thailand, from just five metres away.

Rooms are a bit bunker like.

The centrally located A’s come with choice of fan or air-con, while the slightly cheaper H bungalows set further south towards the corner of the bay have fans only. We like how H’s stand so close to the beach that you can almost jump to the water at high tide. Both of these flashpacker-range deals are equipped with mosquito nets and hot-water wet bathrooms showing some grime.

The pricier rooms were full during our most recent visit, but they all come in freestanding, square-shaped concrete bungalows set a little further back on the lawn with at least partial sea views. On a previous visit the rooms underwhelmed us, the bathrooms in particular, though exteriors have received fresh coats of paint since then. And again, that beach is pretty freaking good, explaining why the resort often fills up in high season.

Reaching outwards from the resort’s 300 metres of white-sand beachfront is the longest and we think the most picturesque of the five wooden piers that add much to Bang Bao’s appeal. Here you can lounge, stroll and take pictures from great vantage points before jumping into the crystal water. Back on the sand, a lot of families prefer this beach thanks to the gentle drop off and enough shelter from the headlands to keep the water calm for much of the year.

The setting is gorgeous though.

Staffers seemed friendly but the team of four receptionists could have done a better job of greeting (or at least making eye contact) as we stood around waiting to be helped. The resort offers a massage sala and a recently rebuilt restaurant where the included breakfasts are served, but facilities are limited. Don’t expect the free WiFi to work beyond the restaurant.

If you don’t mind a short walk to Bang Bao’s best beachfront, check out Sand and Sea as an alternative to Siam Beach’s budget rooms, or Koh Kood Resort if you’re considering Siam Beach’s pricier bungalows.
