Most of Haad Khlong Dao was gobbled up by large midrange resorts several years ago, but this small and stylish resort found a fine stretch of beach to build its contemporary Thai-style resort in more recent years.
Set in an attractive two-storey building with a minimalist design, rooms are very spacious and stylish, with wall-size sea-facing windows, glossy tile floors, sophisticated grey furnishings, modern art and bathtubs in the spacious hot-water bathrooms. They're all fully equipped with desk, plus-size safe, minibar and large LCD TV, and the suite is set in a circular building with wrap-around windows. The resort has an on-site pizzeria and steakhouse to go with a small but well-placed oval swimming pool set directly over the sand. While not exceptional value, this is a good choice for those who want beachfront comfort but aren't keen on the older and larger beach resorts. Take 1,000 baht off the high season rates during the shoulder months of March and November. We found that rooms can usually be booked through Agoda for sizeable discounts.
