We often do this crazy thing (mind your dirty mind!) we take a Friday night flight to Langkawi (brown sand, bad food) stay over night in the stunningly communist style airport hotel, get up a the crack of dawn (I said DAWN) and take a ferry to the small Thai island of Koh Lipe (white sand, amazing food, good people).
And when we do dear listener, we always stay at Budhaya. Why? I ask you think (I have VERY good hearing). I'll tell you why. It's on the best beach. It has really cute rooms (cabins with decks and sometimes outdoor showers) and it has the best food. Ga Prow Moo (Mince pork with holy basil), Som Tam (papapya salad) and Kua Gling (southern style minced meat with chili, lime leaf and spices) are to DIE FOR (although I am sadly still alive - life as they say, is suffering)...
The breakfast at this joint is also killer. Khao Tom (rice soup NOT confee which is like albino-phlegm) is available, my personal fave. As is a pseudo western breakfast.
Now, it's a bit tricky getting a sunbed on the beach, for they're aren't many, but the sand is like laying in talcum powder so you'll be ok.
Walking street a, er, short walk away. Stay here. It's simple. And you can sit and smirk at the 100 tourist dragging their wheelies 500 metres on the beach because some other hotel might just have hot running water... whatevs.
