With high ceilings and large front porches, the spacious and spotless rooms come with tile floors, comfortable beds and several screened windows. The cheapest fan rooms are a two-minute stroll from the sand, while fan and air-con rooms with hot water are lined up closer to the beach. Favoured by families or anyone who prefers a fully sealed concrete room to the simpler wood or bamboo huts, Season is known for its quality restaurant and friendly service. A bit further south, Andaman Beach Resort has similar rooms and prices.
