Run by a very sincere and soft-spoken local man who speaks minimal English, Thai-West is the most luxurious of Si Boya’s three places to stay.

Photo of Thai-West Resort
We’re not talking five-star facilities, but the priciest seafront concrete villas have air-con, shiny blue tile floors, several windows and separated shower stalls in the lovely hot-water bathrooms that are separated from the rest of the room by stained-glass doors that feature a smiling Shamu, the friendly orca. A couple of other concrete villas are available with fan or air-con, including a huge family room that sleeps six. The smallest bamboo fan bungalows come with cold water but are similarly inviting and well kept. These are set in a private area to the north of the rest of the villas. Thai-West bills itself as "a water sports paradise", and indeed they offer equipment for windsurfing, SUP (stand-up paddling), kayaking and fishing. There’s also an interesting roofed sala on plastic pontoons that floats just off shore when the tide is in. There was no restaurant or WiFi available during our visit in March 2014, but the owner says both will arrive next season. The atmosphere here is very quiet and laid back; we were first greeted by a few young kids who were chasing chickens around a swing.
