Garden View Resort
Looks like it has been hit by an asteroid
88/2 Moo 2, Prunai Rd, Ko Yao Yai T: (081) 535 1212
There's charmingly dilapidated, and then there's just plain dilapidated.
It was hard to believe that this place was actually still in operation. The front porch of the 'restaurant' (that is, the place where they hang the laundry up to dry) looked like it had been hit by an asteroid. Some of the bungalows had their windows blown out, curtains flapping in the breeze; others looked to be inhabited though there wasn’t a soul to be seen there on our visit. Set just off the main road to the pier, here's little in the way of a garden to view here, though the white sands of Loh Jark beach are just a two-minute walk away. Not much to recommend, aside from its dirt-cheap price. Given its rough state, Garden View seems ripe for demolition.
