Set right beside Bow Thong, Palm Leaf Resort is a deceptively large property running back from the beach to the road and offering a couple of reasonable options near the sand.

We were shown what they call a Deluxe Villa Room, which are set just a little back from the beach. They are set in a staggered two storey red polished concrete block with a thatch roof and bamboo detailing. The building has been built at a slight angle to the beach, so we imagine from the upstairs rooms there are some views to be had (we were shown a ground floor room).

Inside, the rooms are smart – and considerably better than we expected – with modern fittings, decorative wall details and pillows, bedside tables, plenty of space, air-con, WiFi and flat screen TV. Quite decent hot water bathrooms too. The second tier bungalows further back are a considerable drop in quality and finish, think bamboo and some creaking, but as they were all full when we visited, we were unable to get a look inside. Likewise with the beachfront bungalows which are ideally placed, but we couldn’t get a look inside.

There is some historical relationship between here and Bow Thong next door – same extended family perhaps – we’re not sure, but, if you’re set on one property or the other, be specific in your booking to make sure you’re not moved across to the other property. We found the staff here to be considerably friendlier than those at Bow Thong.
