This is a little diffecult review to write. We really liked the Bang Saphan area, the resort is clean and nice maintained. Good little pool, cleanish bungalows (they have 4 rooms, 2 bungalows) Larry, a englishman that run the place with his wife, is a good man, drove us free of charge to the city. Got a welcome drink when... More

Having been in and out of Thailand's beaches and resorts for the last 15 years, we are happy to say that my wife and I, along with our one-year-old, finally found a place to slow down, relax, and recharge. Just meters from long, undeveloped, palm tree-strewn beaches is the small resort of Palm Gardens. The owners/operators of this small gem... More

We have been to Thailand lots of times, but never to Bang Saphan. After a lengthy train ride from Bangkok we were met at the station by Thongbi and brought to Palm Gardens... The whole resort is small, private and excellently maintained. Lovely swimming pool, gardens, and very spacious rooms. Larry was a great host, and the breakfasts were very... More

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
