Located within sight of the fishing pier at the northern end of Nares Damri, this chilled-out spot has one of the best atmospheres in the area thanks to the genuinely friendly Thai staff and Danish owner who plays soulful saxophone in the ground-floor lounge on most nights.

Photo of The Fat Cat Guesthouse & Piano Bar
It was recently refurbished when we last visited, with the best rooms located upstairs in the main building, each with plenty of space, several windows, comfortable beds, TVs, mini-fridges, desks, elaborate Thai tapestries and modern hot-water bathrooms. An extra 300 baht bags you a bit more space and a balcony with sea view, though the standards were fine by us. Fat Cat also offers dirt-cheap fan rooms in a separate building nearby. The one that we checked out felt a bit like a jail cell with its scuffed cement walls and minimal natural light, but it is equipped with private hot-water bathroom, TV and mini-fridge, and the lone window affords a glimpse of the sea. Upstairs in this same building, the cheapest rooms are tiny and rely on a shared hot-water bathroom, but even these come with TV and fridge. If you don’t stay here, be sure to stop by for a steak and glass of wine between 19:00 and 21:00, when the live jazz keeps things smooth and romantic.
