Sporting high thatch roofs, hardwood floors, woven bamboo interior walls and bamboo rods on the exteriors, the 19 freestanding rooms come in two price brackets depending on proximity to the beach. Front-row editions are set over sand with direct sea views while cheaper rooms are situated further back and have only partial sea views.

Inside you get a comfortable bed with mosquito net along with several glass windows, fridge, portable fan in addition air-con and partially open-air garden bathroom with hot water shower. The rooms show some wear and tear in the faded bamboo but appeared well kept where it counts. Each also bags you a front deck with loungers.

The resort includes free WiFi, a Thai massage sala and large Thai/Western restaurant with tables and loungers spread over wide beachside decks and directly over the sand. We’ve found that both the reception and dining staff do a commendable job.

Mayalay is the sister of Thapwarin Resort located at the north end of the beach, which is a little pricier and has a more secluded setting but is otherwise quite similar. Next door to Mayalay is Koh Hai Fantasy, a massive resort with dull but comfortable concrete rooms starting at similar rates—it may be a better option for families thanks to the addition of a swimming pool.
