We just returned home from 3 nights at Nang Thong Bay Resort. It was with my wife and our 2 children (5 & 3 yrs old). It's the 2nd time my wife and I have stayed here. The first was 6 yrs ago before our first was born. We were finally able to go back and loved it as much as the first time!
The 1st time we stayed in a beachfront bungalow (#101). We wrote and asked if we could have the same room and we could get it! It made it special to be able to share the experience with our kids. Beautiful room, great for 2, still good with 2 young kids because they laid down 2 mattresses for them next to the main bed. The kids loved it. I think it might be difficult with older kids or more than 2 kids but not sure. Wonderful view of the beach all day long! With the excellent pool right behind-beside us, it is perfect for a swim in one and then a swim in the other.
As some others said, the restaurant isn't that great. The staff are great as is every one there. I was sad that breakfast is mainly focused on a traditional western breakfast now. The simple eggs and potatoes dish is no more. But still, sitting on the beach with the morning breeze and cup off coffee is great!
As I said before, the staff is great. The young guy gave us a ride up the hill every time if he was free and even back down if you were lucky enough to see him, or he'll stop and let you jump in if he sees you first! My kids loved riding with him.
Great place! Simple, beautiful, away from everything so you still feel like you're on a secluded beach but just a 5 or so mins walk to shopping and many restaurants.
We hope we can make it back there again....and soon!
