We stopped at Dream Field for a bite to eat, not realising they had rooms -- and it was a pleasant surprise to find them.

Dream Field Resort -- though you'll see them referred to as Dream Field Cottage some places online -- is set back off Bang Rak's beach road behind Green Leaf restaurant, with their unusual rooms scattered around lawn garden grounds. The centrepiece is a slightly raised emerald-tiled pool (which gives the water a green hue) ringed in by healthy frangipani trees. As it is set back behind the restaurant, noise from the road is reduced, though you'll still hear the occasional truck or screeching motorbike.

While we've never been into a haram, the room interiors immediately brought our imagined one to mind. Red carpet (yes carpet!), blue walls and a pink sofa are accompanied by a vaguely Middle-Eastern theme of decorative artwork and floral motifs. The room we were shown had an arch painted behind the bed that brought an Iranian mosque to mind, then we turned around and sitting on the shelving was a hookah. We forgot to ask if it was merely decorative! In all of Thailand, we've never seen a room interior quite like this one.

Decor aside, the room is a good size, the bed firm and the equally memorable hot-water bathroom very clean. We're not sure how well the red carpet goes with wet feet from the pool, but the room was overall in very good shape. Likewise the exteriors are unusual, roughly finished with more iconography like drummers in a bas-relief style on the walls. The attached Green Leaf restaurant is good and does a mix of Thai and Western dishes -- we had a simple one-plate noodle dish and it was fine. Staff are friendly and helpful.

This is priced towards upper-end flashpackers and it struck us as a fair deal. It should appeal to travellers looking for something a bit different to a more typical bungalow resort; there is nothing typical about Dream Field. You are on the wrong side of the road for the beach, but there is the pool on site and the beach is just a couple of minutes' walk away.

If full, nearby Secret Garden is a touch spendier than here for their entry-level rooms, but is also impressively styled and run, and it's on the beach. For a more predicable style, consider Samui Pier Beachfront Resort, or, for something cheaper, backpackers should head to Samui Backpacker Hotel. Shop online for a discounted rate. Recommended.
