Longtail Beach Resort is the southernmost spot to stay on Thong Nai Pan Yai and with solid bungalows, friendly staff and spacious leafy grounds, it is worth the walk.

The bungalows come in both fan-cooled and air-con flavours and are quite spacious, with generously sized decks already slung with hammocks and mosquito-net shrouded beds within. Bathrooms are clean and well looked after, nearly all have hot water.

Make an offering for a good holiday.

Like the nearby Dolphin, the gardens here are a strongpoint – lush and well tended, but as the bungalows run back in rows from the beach, very few have much in the way of a water or beach view. The restaurant sits by the beach and offers a solid variety of Western and Thai standards, prices, for Thong Nai Pan are not unreasonable – note the plates which stick with the longtail theme.

We've found the staff here to be reliably friendly and obliging and overall Longtail has a fun and relaxing vibe. Thanks to a small reef out front, the waters directly out front are often used for mooring small fishing boats, so it isn't the best swimming (Longtail has no swimming pool) but you need only walk a little along the beach for better swimming.

Plenty of beach out front.

The sand here is dusty white, making it some of the finest sand on the beach. This end of Thong Nai Pan is very quiet – suitable for families and late sleepers. If full, try Dolphin just up the beach from here, which is another solid choice. Recommended.
