Really does have a great view
This is one of those rare places with ’viewpoint’ in the name that actually delivers -- it’s high up on a steep hill and the 180-degree view of the ocean from the balconies goes on forever.
The rooms are much better than you might expect for the price, being well-furnished, with French doors letting on to the balconies. They offer fan-cooled or air-con rooms with private baths, some with hot showers, and a choice of twin or double beds. The name Tabeak refers to the colourful, flowering trees that surround the bungalows, without, thankfully, blocking the view. It’s run by a Thai-Japanese couple -- they serve Thai and Japanese food at the restaurant on premises. Prices include WiFi and coffee or tea. Closed from May through October.
