Stroll across the bridge from the City Pillar Shrine in downtown Surat and you’ll find a far more relaxing atmosphere on the north side of the Tapi River.

Within sight of the river is the Sabye d Resort, offering some of the best-value rooms that we saw in Surat.

Fronted by a large sign and tiny office behind a few noodle stalls, the Sabye d doesn’t look like much from the road. Head further back down a corridor decorated with tasteful photos of Southern Thai life and you begin to notice the peace and quiet that eludes the downtown hotels. Standard air-con rooms are set in a single-floor motel-style building that stretches for some distance back from the office and is accessed by a partially open-air hallway. These are sleek and spacious, with polished concrete floors, loveseats, mini-fridges, LCD TVs, desks, free WiFi and modern wet bathrooms with hot water. While the cheaper rooms are very good, we’d shell out the extra 60 baht for a larger air-con deluxe room fronted by a bamboo-roof entrance further back. The extra cash bags you more space and a private terrace beside a little pond that comes complete with a rowboat.

The yellow-clad staff members speak basic English and can help with ferry bookings and info on the city. Though some travellers will be put off by the slightly out-of-the-way location, staying here does have its advantages -- the atmospheric Ko Lamphu Park is a three-minute walk away and several good riverside seafood restaurants, including the Crossroads, are just around the corner. The mini-resort also has a car park.
