Modern, no-fuss flashpacker spot
Found next door to the Surin Bay Inn just a few minutes’ walk to the beach, this modern, cheerful 29-room hotel with a rooftop terrace is a good alternative if Surin Bay is booked up.
For the standard rooms, book one at the back if you want to save money, or take a front room if you’re keen to have a balcony with a sea view in the distance. The streetside rooms also have a small seating area just inside the balcony. Larger suites have the best views and a bathtub in the bathroom. Every room comes with air-con, cable TV, minibar, safe and kettle and hot water showers, with a choice of twin or double beds. Just outside the entrance to each room is a rack holding an umbrella, a thoughtful feature. Rates below include WiFi but not breakfast, though packages with breakfast included are available if you book online. During our visit in July 2015 a building was under construction directly behind the building, and the park across the road was being dug up for a waterworks project. Be sure to check before booking if you’re not keen on daytime noise.
