Attention to detail
The long-standing Sam Roi Yod Holiday remains a straightforward and reliable choice towards the southern end of the beach road.
Rooms are set either in detached villas with sea views or standard rooms in a single-floor attached building that fronts well-manicured gardens, frangipani trees, fountains, mini-ponds and a wooden gazebo. With floral wallpaper, tile floors and wood furnishings, the cheapest rooms are on the small side but very well-kept and equipped with air-con, TVs, electronic safes, desks, mini-fridges, bureaus, spacious hot-water bathrooms and private terraces out front. Set in an atmospheric octagon-shaped open-air structure straight across from the beach, the restaurant has won numerous awards for its extensive range of Thai and Chinese dishes along with a handful of Western options, all of which rely on veggies, fruits and spices grown in the on-site garden. The place is owned by a sweet and personable Thai couple who do a fine job of helping guests arrange tours of the park as well as motorbike rental, onward transport, fishing trips and other activities. A few kayaks and beach loungers are also available. While prices may seem a tad high, it’s reasonable value given the attention to detail.
