PP Land Beach Resort

Classy rooms and cashew trees

More on Ko Phayam

Seclusion seekers who prefer a comfy room should consider PP Land, a classy resort set amid the snaking branches of cashew trees on the east coast.

Travelfish says:

The resort does not allow children under 15 years old to stay, though its sister property, New Heaven on northern Ao Khao Kwai, was set up with families in mind. A Belgian/Thai couple with an eye for design own both places; PP Land came first in 2006 and it’s still a great choice if you don’t mind an out-of-the-way location reached via a sandy track. It’s a 15-minute walk from here to the village.

Set around cashew trees that bloom from February to April, the clean and green concrete bungalows come with soft beds propped off hardwood floors beneath mosquito nets, portable fans, safes, ceramic elephant heads on the walls and bathrooms divided into separate sections for the Western flush toilets, sinks and cold-water showers. Good-quality hammocks and cushioned chairs furnish spacious porches that all face the sea, though you’ll have to pay more for rooms built closest to the little beach blanketed in purple goat’s foot flowers. Glass doors make it possible to wake up to the sunrise.

The bungalows are accessed through a large gate with several “guests only” signs, one of several tactics taken by polite staff to ensure peace and quiet. Food at the on-site restaurant is pricey, but you get fresh-baked bread and unlimited free drinking water. Loungers surround a small but attractive swimming pool in a corner of the property. WiFi is free and electricity runs 24 hours a day. PP Land is also one of Phayam’s few resorts that stay open year-round.

Just up the inland road, Coffee & Resort and Garden View are fine alternatives if PP Land is full and you don’t feel like going over to the west coast beaches.
