Stayed here for 2 nights on a recommendation as the best place to stay in thung wua laen. In terms of setting it can't really be beaten, and the bungalow rooms were nice with a good sized verandah outside with good views of the beach. However the bathroom facilities were quite basic, and we had a problem with our toilet.... More

The hotel is in a nice location, however it has seen better days. Its a huge resort but a lot of the area is just not cared for. The restaurant Banana Cabana has very nice food, the staff is very helpful. This beach has only about 4 resorts, nothing much to do here but chill!!

I must admit that pragmatically I can agree with some previous comments. The hotel could do with a lick of paint in places. But it is a simply stunning location, the rooms are in my experience clean and well serviced and the swimming pool is massive and set in a tropical garden. The whole place is very natural and relaxed... More

We love going to Chumphon for holidays. The beach is pristine and vast and we liked to walk along. We always stayed at Chumphon Cabana which is located right in the middle of the magnificent Tung Wua Lan Beach. But along the years that we were there, the rooms seem to be getting worse and worse. At first, we though... More

After 10+ years, we revisited this hotel again. Same old same old. Quiet place not many guests. Very good services. Good food. Would recommend for foreigners who loves to relax, reading books, do nothing. But still if you want there are many other activities awaiting for you to explore e.g. Diving, jungle raft, etc. Very long beach, clear water. Strongly... More

This hotel offers the best location for its purpose! Every diver will find this as a paradise but every other will find this a nightmare. The room were built in probably 1990's as they still have old Televisions, their furniture is really old and everything in the room is dusty. The only thing perfect about this hotel is the location... More

Basic hotel, rooms are very affordable and you get a nice, quiet beach. Most visitors appear to be here for scuba diving at the near-by islands. Indeed, a scuba diving shop and instructor centre is located just outside hotel grounds. Rooms are very basic... No hot water was my main irk. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, probably because there... More

We stayed at many places in Thailand, the hotel has very basic facilities, the bathroom had mould all over the roof, smelt damp, which is not healthy to be breathing in, no tea and coffee making facilities, outside the room was a pond with stagnant water, a breeding ground for mosquitoes, the restaurant service poor to average, having breakfast and...

The place is not new and the room rather old but it was clean and spacious enough. Bfast was a mix of continental and thai food. The diving shop is next door. Very helpful people. The dives are easy and not spectacular. If you have not dived for a while this is a good spot to start. If you walk... More
