After coming this way to check out a trio of better-known midrange resorts, we bumped into Mae Nam Village and found that it offers equal or better accommodation for considerably less cash within steps of the beach and a good strip of restaurants.

Photo of Mae Nam Village Bungalows
The gentle owner, Mickey, hails from Nan province in North Thailand and spent years living in France and the US. He’s a real pleasure to chat with and is a trustworthy source for motorbike rental and tour bookings. He offers comfortable and clean rooms in a concrete single-floor building fronted by a gravel lane, so no actual bungalows here.

Sparsely decorated standard rooms come with queen-size beds over orange tile floors along with hot-water wet bathrooms, tables, free WiFi, fridges, TVs and chairs on the porches. These are great for the price, though we were tempted to spend an extra 200 baht for a much larger room with a kitchenette and separate living area -- that one is suitable for groups.

Mae Nam Village also runs a laundry shop and restaurant serving tasty Thai food for cheap, at least by Samui standards. It’s located around the corner from a Chinese shrine in the actual Mae Nam village, with a good strip of restaurants just up the street. Public beach access is available via a pavilion that’s no more than 100 metres away, so you won’t have to wander through neighbouring resorts like Hutcha, The Hammock and Hacienda. Between these three, we’d go with Hutcha for the small swimming pool if you want a more traditional resort.
