Place is run by a Swedish family who are so nice and helpful, makes you feel at home. We had the cheapest option, a bungalow just by the beach, no AC and only cold water, quite run down but the surroundings make up for it. They clean room when you ask them to. Reception staff always helps with excursions, motor... More

The receptionist became very aggressive and threatened to call the police. Also we had booked a beach front bungalow. The Swedish owner took us to a bungalow... More

We stayed in the tree house and we had a great view and a good time too. Its a basic accomodation but very clean and good swimming pool, access to the beach and main road, very freindly staff and great massage by the beach. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced too

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Charm Beach Resort is a classic thai resort with that genuine feeling and a well known name on the island. The resort has been around in one shape or another for almost thirty years. During this time the bungalows and the other building has changed, but the wonderful beach has stayed the same. Today is a perfect mix of tradition and modernity, featuring AC, Wifi and swimming pool. Today the resort holds about 30 bungalows and a restaurant in the main building. One of the bungalows is set up in one of the trees, with an own balcony where you can enjoy the sunset. It also features one of the widest beach strips for one resort on the whole island. This is the place for beach activities and evening happenings. BBQ, music and cocktails are offered several nights in the week. For the young ones there's a playground in the shade, and even movie time on the beach certain nights. We hope you come and visit us and this marvelous place on one of Thailands most spectacular island, with extraordinary nature. Be sure to ask for the special day trips that are offered in the jungle, at the sea or in the mountain. There's much more to this island, beside the full moon party.From November 2012 the resort has changed ownership and are now managed by a Swedish family. The resort is now undertaking a facelift and modernization by the new management. ... more   less
