We found Kaw Kwang by searching for a good deal on agoda.com, and the descriptions sounded good. When we first arrived, I admit there was a moment of disappointment - the beach is nothing like I imagined, the tide reaches all across the sand so it is usually wet, and it is inhabited by thousands of crabs of all sizes that make it seem uninviting to lie down on.
However, after some time, the place grew on us: The area is like a big garden with the huts arranged in two or three rows inside it. Ours was nice enough, and I especially liked that we had a front porch with lots plants and birds around it - we weren't lucky with the weather but this was a nice place to sit, read and look at flora and fauna. The same was true for the beach: Even though the whole bay didn't seem made to hang out on the sand, you could use the sun chairs that were available under the trees on the grass right in front of the beach, and could walk down across the beach when you want to swim.
The pool was nice, the place generally seemed clean, and I enjoyed the location at the end of the bay: This way, you had peace and quiet but could easily stroll along the beach to the restaurants. Even though Kaw Kwang seems older than many of the other places nearby, I thought it had a nicer, more unique atmosphere.
For better food than at the beach and a nice market, you can walk to the city - however, this takes you along a street with little lights, so it's not advisable after dark. It might be better to rent a scooter (tuk-tuks to the resorts generally seemed overpriced and reluctant to bargain with you, maybe because they know there's little alternatives).
We were happy with our hut in the second row - the place is small enough that it doesn't really...
