Villa Tanamera

Set towards the eastern end of Bang Rak proper, Villa Tanamera offers well-appointed, family-orientated suites in a lovely shady strip running down to the beach.

Just a little to the east of the far grander (and walled in) Saboey, with especially friendly staff, Villa Tanamera leaves you feeling more like you're staying at a friend's retreat than a modern hotel and we liked it immediately.

Plenty of shade to go around.

From the street you first hit reception and a small cafe (for breakfast only) then a medium sized, but quite attractive staggered pool, with deckchairs and umbrellas. After that, the garden takes over, dominated by a shade tree, with the mustard-coloured rooms continuing to run down on each side of the garden before emptying out at the two beachfront rooms and a great stretch of beach.

All the suites are two bedrooms, working for families or travelling friends and they emphasise home-away-from-home living, with kitchenettes as well as a living area with soft furnishings and a dining area. The sala villas have a rooftop deck (with sala) boasting views to Ko Pha Ngan, while the beachfront villas have a terrace leading down to the beach. A long narrow swimming pool forms the resort's focal point, and while it isn't the biggest pool on the block, we imagine with the good beach out front it never gets too crowded. A basic breakfast is included, but with kitchens in the villas and plenty of restaurants nearby, you won't have trouble rustling up extra if you need it.

Just steps away...

Rooms all come with air-con, WiFi, LCD TV with DVD player and safes. While the beach out front is very good (for Bang Rak) ferry piers are located nearby, so there will be the occasional tooting ferry horn to startle you from your lazing by the pool. They also have one studio room suitable to couples in the main building at the rear of the resort, which is a solid deal if you can't quite stretch to one of the villas.

If you can't get in, The Scent Hotel, up at the western end of Bang Rak is another option, while if you'd prefer more fancypants with all the luxurious trimmings (and the corresponding price) Saboey is almost next door.
