An Bang hideaway
Long-winded name aside, An Bang Sunset Village Homestay is a terrific pick for those looking to balance comfort and price.
If flashpackers are willing to stretch their wallet, they can snag one of the four rooms in a modern building, located a short walk to the beach.
Rooms have more character and charm than your average joint. A wraparound walkway with seating and a communal terrace connects the upstairs rooms. Inside the exposed brick walls have been painted with a stylish grey-blue that compliments the warm terracotta floors, clean white linens and cherrywood-stained shelving. Tall folk will love the high ceilings.
Bathrooms are surprisingly swish, decked out in marble tile, contemporary fixtures, warm lighting and a separate shower area. It’s all very elegantly minimalist and comfortably modern.
WiFi, air-con, breakfast and bicycle are included. You’ll find this joint along the road lined with small shops and homestays. The lane is opposite the beachside, a few metres down the path behind a gate. To sweeten the deal, the owners have a restaurant on the beach and guests are free to use their chairs and umbrellas for free.
