Named after the Buddha’s trusted sidekick who was known for cheerfulness in stressful situations, Ananda Villa offers great value with positive vibes on a convenient stretch of Mae Haad Beach.

Superior rooms are spread over two floors of a bright seafront building beside an umbrella tree, each with a large private terrace, with beach access from ground floor rooms. Most of these face trees but the two at the front have direct sea views. All are a few steps from the beach. Superiors are bright and immaculate, with quality beds and linens over white tile floors, good-size hot-water bathrooms, fans (in addition to air-con), Thai art, fridges, TVs, desks and coffee/tea facilities.

Ananda also offers good backpacker-range wooden bungalows located across the lane from the main building on a grassy property with flowering trees and enough space to kick a ball around. These have porches with a couple of chairs, hot-water showers in simple wet bathrooms, soft mattresses on proper wood bedframes, TVs (unexpected for the price) and porches with wood chairs. Hardwood floors and woven bamboo walls impart the rustic feel that we expect from a cheap bungalow, but without the cobwebs and rotting wood. These “garden bungalows” are also available with air-con and fridges.

While a lot of boat traffic should be expected, the resort ropes off a sizable patch of sea for safe swimming. Mae Haad village’s abundant dining and drinking options are a five-minute walk to the south, while Haad Sairee is a pleasant 15-minute walk north of Ananda.
