Hotel has beach of gravel sand mix. Small tidal estuary creek runs in front of half beach. Some garbage such as plastic bags and bottles along beach front. Water visibility at time of visit was less than half a meter, no snorkeling possible.
Rooms cleaned daily, hot water with on demand electric heaters worked well. Breakfast included was sufficient. Owner was personable and on site.
Room rates were 5500 baht per night. Advertised rates at the full service condo across the street were 10 times less, similar size modern rooms, big screen TV, but no beach. Advertised rates at beach bungalows within 1 km were 5 times less, but a more basic, hut style bungalow, no small swimming pool and landscaped garden as the waterfront has. Budget conscious travelers can thus obtain similar sized modern rooms OR beach front at 5 or 10 times less cost, but not both together. So if one insists on both modern amenities and beachfront and the prices are within budget, this hotel does deliver as advertised.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet. ... more less
