Viking Nature Resort
Between Ton Sai Beach and Long Beach T: (075) 819 339, (083) 649 9492
Not on Ton Sai Beach itself, sprawling Viking Resort runs across a couple of beaches between Arayaburi and Long Beach and offers a wide range of bungalows, including quite comfortable and solid wooden fan-cooled bungalows, amazing treehouses and multilevel bungalows that are just massive, with each individually decorated within.
Rooms in the same price bracket can be quite variable though, and some are a very long walk from the restaurant, so if possible, ask to be shown a few rooms. Some are ideal for families, others for couples looking for something atmospheric and isolated. Also great for groups, the largest choice is a huge bungalow with four bedrooms and a capacity for 10. Note though that the closer you get to town, the louder the music at night becomes. Mosquitoes are also a major issue here, too, so pack repellent. Prices remain mostly in the flashpacker bracket. There's also a popular restaurant on site, but the service can be quite slapdash and tends to the glacial on the speed front. Nevertheless this is a very popular spot and in high season reservations are close to essential.
