Just what it sounds like
Sea Breeze House’s A-frame design may look like it belongs in an Alpine ski resort, but it works just fine for a holiday on Haad Hai Phlao.
The Thai/Swiss-managed guesthouse stands directly over the sand and bags you comfy rooms with a homely touch and helpful service.
A wooden stairway takes you past dark fretted-wood walls up to the few spacious rooms, each with angled ceilings thanks to the A-frame. They all come with comfortable beds, wall-mounted LCD TVs, fans (in addition to the air-con), safes, fridges and unexpectedly large bathrooms that appear to have been built with European guests in mind. You could opt for a slightly cheaper room downstairs, but then you’d miss out on the huge roofed deck with sea views, which is shared between the upper rooms.
Located a stone’s throw from several restaurants and shops in Nai Phlao “village,” the small guesthouse rents out bicycles and motorbikes while providing some of the best info that we came across on what to do in the Khanom area. The woman who showed us around was polite yet personable, and the guesthouse has an excellent reputation.
If Sea Breeze is full, the nearby Suchada Villa Resort has decent concrete villas for around the same price. If you’re looking to spend less in Nai Phlao, a couple of the shops across the street from Sea Breeze offer a room or two in the 600 baht range.
