Don’t judge Smile House by a name that makes it sound like a cosy guesthouse. The large resort offers dozens and dozens of comfortable rooms, including a bunch of family options, along with two swimming pools and a good location off the seaside lane through Fisherman’s Village.

Smile House has direct beach access via the large restaurant specialising in seafood barbecue, with all of the rooms stretching back among coconut, umbrella and bamboo trees beyond a small car park off the inland side of the lane.

The resort looks fairly small from the front, but take a walk back from reception into the narrow but very long property and you’ll find that it just goes and goes, passing an attractive wood gazebo along with various lawns and common facilities before curving to the west and continuing further. Rooms are built on either side throughout, and there’s a real sense of spaciousness here after walking through the cramped village.

Standard rooms come in attached white concrete-and-wood buildings while a raft of freestanding villa-type rooms are made of dark wood. Fronted by private porches with cushioned lounge chairs and ceiling fans, the rooms feature traditional Thai art hung from wood walls and ceramic lamps placed on either side of quality beds over white tile floors.

Good sized, comfortable rooms.

Rooms start at 32 square metres and go up from there to include spacious villas with Jacuzzi tubs and two or three bedrooms, making this an excellent option for families. All rooms come with air-con, free WiFi, desks, TVs, safes, coffee/tea facilities, fridges and partitioned hot-water showers in spacious bathrooms.

Kids will appreciate the large swimming pool at the front and a smaller pool set back on a quieter part of the property. CCTV cameras are set up throughout the grounds, and the silk-clad staff did a good job at reception.
