Slightly difficult to pronounce, Promtsuk Buri faces straight onto a good stretch of rock-free Thong Ta Tien beach, offering well-priced rooms (for the area) running back from the beach.

The slightly unusually shaped chalets here are dated but spacious, with open-to-the-sky bathrooms, large decks and a lawn garden outlook. They’re in two rows running down to the beach, and while the large, coconut-studded lawn is screaming out for a swimming pool, the lack of one gives it all a more spacious a feel.

There is a single string hammock strung between two palms towards the beach beside the small but modern restaurant and it seems odd they haven’t strung more around as guests would make use of them – the chalet decks have wooden furniture rather than hammocks. The modern-styled restaurant feels a little out of place with the older rooms, but the setting right by the beach is excellent.

Within the rooms it is pretty standard fare: neutral colours, white linen with a sash thrown across, minibar, TV, WiFi and a small desk/dresser area. The bathroom in the room we were shown, towards the rear of the resort, was clean, however the translucent half-ceiling was quite dirty and unsightly – the bathroom was otherwise fine.

There is little to separate Promtsuk Buri with Thong Takien Resort which lies just to the south, and while the latter does have a swimming pool and alongwith some older rooms, some more modern offerings in a two floor building towards the rear of the resort, we preferred the staff here. Either though are a reasonable option for the area.

If you want something slightly cheaper, La Mer Samui sits a little off the beach behind here and offers reasonable chalets with a swimming pool in a garden setting. Check online for a discounted rate.
