Towards the centre of Thong Nai Pan Yai, Starlight offers three kinds of rooms – somewhat musty and aged bungalows and smarter newer rooms in a two level motel-style building, but the real selling point is the well positioned swimming pool.

As with nearby Nice, Starlight’s bungalows here have certainly seen better days and we’d say if you’re looking for a bungalow stay elsewhere, but the motel-style rooms are reasonable fare for the price and are considerably cheaper than Havana a little down the beach.

Entered from the rear, decor and furnishings won’t sear themselves into your memory, but the rooms are adequate, with hot water bathrooms, TV, mini-fridge, kettle and a desk. Verandas are furnished but only fenced off from your neighbours, so not all that private – you’ll get to know who is in the rooms alongside yours.

The L-shaped swimming pool is one of the better ones on Thong Nai Pan and, with a series of step levels in it, it is good one for kids. Right next door you’ll find The Four Resort (previously Central Cottage) which has a similar set-up but without a pool. They do have some uber basic and very old wooden huts that were the cheapest we saw on Thong Nai Pan Yai and so those on very tight budgets (and planning to spend the minimal amount of time possible in their rooms) may want to head there.

Nearby Pen’s Bungalow is another budget option with fan-cooled bungalows starting at 500 baht.
