We are into the second week of our two week stay and we just love the place! First we had a bungalow across the 'highway', which is in fact just a quiet two way road and had a two/three minute walk to the beach, but as we decided to stay longer we asked for a room closer to beach - its exactly the same, size wise but now we only have to walk less than a minute to the beach!
The little bungalows are fantastic value for money, with all mod cons, superbly clean and very comfortable.
The hotel management and staff are excellent, they simply can't do enough for you and if there is anything you want / need, they are happy to oblige (we asked for chairs on our balcony instead of the sun lounger and this was happily dealt with).
The buffet breakfast has been great - I'm a vegetarian and there has always been something there for me, whether it be western or Thai food and if eggs etc... have run out when we get there then we have always been asked if we would like more cooked.
Evening meals are superb - admittedly a little more expensive than you can get elsewhere, however 150bhat for a delicious green curry is still excellent value for money.
The beach is just wonderful and exactly how we like it - nice and quiet and virtually untouched by the tourist masses! This little province in Thailand remains true to itself and we hope it stays that way for many more years to come!!
Oh and as for the hotels 'karaoke nights' we've been here 10 days and tonight is the second one, it's not karaoke, it's organised entertainment for a function (who can blame any hotel for trying to turn a profit, in lean times - in fact, good on them, if this helps them maintain the high level of standard that we've enjoyed). Our tip would be to request a room slightly back from the beach to ensure you're not disturbed - either way we really didn't find it a big deal and are happy for the locals to come here and let their hair down!
Khanom is rather spread out so transport is essential, but bike hire is cheap and roads are quiet so safe to drive around.
This is the hotel we would chose if we stayed in Khanom again.
