Clean water, nice facilities, restaurants and the usual army of Russian ready to burn their necks. It is actually inside one of the royal navy areas around the peninsula (same as the Samae San island) so falangs are allowed but can't stay past 6pm

I think it's fit your children's ages well. You can have a boat trip to the island around (very nice) and you can have full day at the western beach. So if you plan your time mix this things, it can be great holiday

Resort right at the beach with nearby food options (3 Replies)
Hello, We are a family of four( kids aged 12 and 8), looking for a beach front accomodation in April last week. Sai Kaew beach looks the nicest in pictures and since we will be there midweek, crowds should not be a problem. We would like to have access to food options and 7/11 like stores nearby during our evening strolls. Thanks.

P.s.- would the Songkran crowds be back to work by the 24th of April? Or Should I be making the room reservations well in advance? Thanks.

You are possibly a little unlucky. Try renting from Nadan Main Street. I rented mine from a family run snack restaurant where I used to have breakfast, I think it was called Banana's. All he wanted was a copy of my driving licence, and this I had to offer him. Lots of places rent out bikes (ie hotels, guest houses, bars, restaurants) on Koh Samet not just the obvious "Motor bike rental shops"
