Paso is set way, way, way towards the southern end of the beach.

Don't give up! Keep on walking and you'll reach it eventually. Rooms are very smart in this modern hotel and the seaview rooms are great weekday value, with proper verandas and not too much passing street traffic to deal with. There's a ground floor lap pool situated a little oddly at the rear of the lobby -- it looks good, but we're not sure how much use it would actually get, and also a large lounging around area and a half-deck elevated above it all. This is a classic modern-styled hotel that will appeal to those who want a minimalist finish with lots of white, a big TV and WiFi. Only gripe is you're a long way from the rest of Cha-am's action here -- for many, that's probably half the attraction. Shop online for a discounted rate as the rate below is what we were quoted as a weekday walk-in.
