The only place to stay within easy walking distance of the beach, Khoplyedum Resort is a fairly large Thai-style place offering simple and affordable rooms set back beneath some trees.

Before you consider staying here, keep in mind that Ao Thong Yang is very isolated and very little English is spoken by resort staff.

With a massive beachfront restaurant, several concrete pavilions, a few different room blocks and a tacky statue of two dolphins, Khoplyedum Resort imposes itself over a substantial chunk of Ao Thong Yang. Rooms are situated in one- or two-storey concrete blocks a couple of hundred metres behind the restaurant and reception area, so you don’t get a sea view. Tropical trees shad all rooms and abundant flowers grace the grounds. The air-con room that we checked out was clean and spacious, if a bit frumpy, with light-blue tile floors, a small table, a fair-size hot-water wet bathroom and heavy wood-and-glass sliding doors. We detected a hint of mustiness but it wasn’t overpowering -- leave the doors open for a few minutes and it will probably dissipate. You’ll find very little in the way of decor, furnishings or extras (like TV), making this a good option if you need a break from the modern world. WiFi is not available, though the 3G signal on our cell phone worked well enough to anchor a hotspot.

The resort’s sign and brochure are in Thai only, and the standoffish staff looked surprised to see a foreigner inquiring about a room. Communicating any sort of complicated request to the receptionists could be a struggle. The restaurant serves very good Southern Thai seafood dishes with English descriptions.
