Right next door to Suanluang, Bang Saphan Beach Resort has a single row of immaculate bungalows running back from the beach looking over a lawn area with a funny little fountain at the centre.
Bungalows come in two flavours, gleaming white near the beach and faux-wood panelling towards the back, but within they’re all of a good standard with firm new mattresses, flat screen TV, air-con, fridge and WiFi. A few deckchairs are scattered down by the beach, though shade is limited and unfortunately the verandas don’t have hammocks. It’s an odd layout -- we’re not sure if they’re planning on adding another row of bungalows or perhaps a pool, or maybe just leaving it as lawn. Staff are cheery but limited English is spoken. Overall this spot struck us as quite good value, but be sure to ask after a chunky discount on weekdays -- you’ll get it.
