We returned after a stay in 2014 and were again blown away by the experience . Larry and his wife Thongbi ensured we had an amazing time. Picking us up at 5 am from the train station and a drive to Chumpion Airport to catch a 7.15am flight were an example of their excellent customer service. We love the area... More

Having enjoyed ourselves last Songkran we made a return 4 night visit again this year. This is still the best place we've stayed at by far. Larry and Thongbai are superb hosts, and it's no wonder they've been awarded a Certificate of Excellence. Room, pool, garden are all wonderfully kept and Thongbai's cooking never fails to live up to our... More

Palm Gardens has for the second time been awarded a Certificate of Excellence, being no 8 of 25 Best Guesthouses i Thailand. And Thongbai and Larry have definitely deserved the honor. It really is an outstanding guesthouse. Everything is clean, inside and outside, and everything is well kept. The breakfast served by a smiling Jin every day on your terrace.... More

Stayed 16 nights at this marvelous little resort. Larry and Thongbai are the most fantastic hosts you can ever imagine. They run an idyllic resort with a stunning garden 100 meters from a wonderful beach with almost no people on. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well kept, spacious and contained everything we needed for our stay. There is about... More

We found this place through luck, driving towards a quiet looking beach. Decided to spend one night, but the property was so relaxing, the room comfy and the beach gorgeous and quiet, we stayed an extra night. Larry and Tambay are extremely friendly and welcoming. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept in on our travels. And... More

Tambay and Larry are great hosts who give the place a very homely feel. The whole resort is very well kept and maintained. To walk to the beach takes about 30 seconds. The swimming pool is clean and a great refreshment. Wifi works very good. The aircon works quickly and is silent. The rooms are clean and comfy, there is... More

We live in the south of Thailand and thought we would go on a "Road trip" for a change of scene, the plan was to go all the way to Hua Hin, but after we checked in and felt the peacefulness of the place we couldn't leave, the rooms were very clean and i can honestly say i have never... More

I was met at the station by Larry and Thongbai, who made me feel very welcome from the beginning. Their four bungalows are set in a relatively new garden - with a pool set in the middle of a luxuriant lawn and a number of attractive palms. (Hence the name of the establishment). The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable,... More
