When you have decided to go to this area of Thailand it is probably because you are looking for at quite more original part of this country. And this is - meaning that many facilities at the big tourist area will not be found her. But looking for at more unspoiled Thailand with charming people, low prices and wonderful beaches this is – I believe – one of the few places left.
There are only three resorts in the Khanom-area for non-thai tourists. They are very different, but this is by no doubt the most charming. It is not luxury but rooms/houses are well kept and most of them situated in a very nice and personal nursed garden next to the sea and a long white beach with very few people.
The resort consists of two parts – the “old one” with very individual houses near the sea/b each and next to the restaurant. On the other side of the local road is the new part with a few houses and a new swimming pool and spa. From here there is no view to the sea, and you have to cross the road to go to the restaurant or the beach.
To my opinion the “old part” is the most charming, but the new part might be more convenient for people with children. Look at the different opportunities – and choose – you get what you pay for!
This is a small resort owned by a German couple together with their thai partner. They all love this place and they love to share it with you. They are all very helpful and if you need any assistance just ask them.
There is a very nice open restaurant in the resort where you also have breakfast. Breakfast is OK but not more, but the menu and the staff makes this restaurant the hot spot of Khanom with many guests from other resorts.
It is a little bit difficult coming there with 1 ½ hour’s drive from the nearest domestic airport. Rent a car or ask them to pick you op. Once there – if you have no car – rent at bike if you want to go to town or look at the area. There are hardly any buses or taxis to call! You can also ask the owners to drive you and guide you – if they are not busy they will no doubt help you.
This is a small pearl that I can highly recommend and if you feel lonesome while staying in Khanom you should know that Koh Samui is only a short ferry ride away. But I am sure you will hurry back unless numerous bars are your first option in Thailand!
