Fancy pants in Bang Saphan
This is arguably Bang Saphan’s premiere spot, located straight across from the beach.
It aims to be an all-inclusive resort vacation spot, and it succeeds nicely with a dive shop and a kickboxing school operating on-site. Families with kids may well want to head straight here. The family cottages (two-bedroom suites) are small but excellent -- the kids’ rooms have bunks. Some of the superiors (family rooms) have the kids’ room in a loft, others on the same floor -- the ones on the same floor are better designed and we’d recommend going for one of those. The cheapest rooms are in a concrete building right at the rear of the resort. The grounds are very pleasant, centred around a good-sized freeform pool. Facilities include a restaurant, karaoke bar, and excursions leave daily to surrounding attractions, like snorkelling on Ko Thalu. We’re not sure about having kickboxing classes going on next to the restaurant during breakfast though. While the family rooms are reasonable, we think the standard rooms are overpriced -- shop online for a good discount off the hotel rates. Very popular with Europeans, and French in particular.
