Can't recommend this Resort highly enough.
My wife and I (50 yrs) needed a complete relaxing holiday and our choice of Chongfah Beach Resort was "spot on". We know we were arriving in the low season so the expected the weather could have been a bit suspect. The first week's weather was a bit "monsoon" style but the certainly ok.
We chose the beachfront Bungalow and how sensational was it to have the sound of waves breaking just 20 metres from our bed - which looked straight out onto the ocean -just perfect! The sound of the waves is so relaxing.
We had our own lounger right out front so access to our room was all too easy.
Chongfah is not a large resort so the chance to interact with the gusets and the staff is always available - it is quite "homely".
On the subject of the staff - just wonderful people who enjoy a laugh and go out fo their way to help you as did the owners of the resort. The staff and owners organized to take us to a local orphanage to deliver some gifts - it is a little difficult to get across the meaning of orphanage. We dropped off books, colour pencils, and the like.
Breakfast was always fresh and plentiful choices and we enjoyed all meals.
Being low season there were certainly many shops closed but as we wanted a far less busy holiday this didn't bother us at all. We were able to find some great Thai massage places nearby which we visited every day.
The resort is very popular with the German nationality and as Australians we had no trouble mixing well with the other guests - especially at the bar!
A nice touch was the late after noon room check and make up - complete with a little Thai hand produced "snack" - a nice touch as was the free souvenir photo they gave us when we were leaving !!
We selected this resort off the web and after reviews from Tripadvisor .. and we were not in any way disappointed.
