Barali Beach resort is located on an amazing stretch of beach - wide and long with plenty of space to feel like you have a private little paradise. The water is crystal clear. Although it isn't really secluded it feels that way.The beach is shallow and therefore very good for children to splash and play. If you want to have a good swim, you will have to venture out quite far from the beach. The beach & pool chairs are comfortable and there were plenty to go around - however, the hotel seemed quite under capacity when we were there. There are hawkers that wander up and down the beach, but with all of the available space, they do not venture too near you, unless you express interest in their wares. The pool itself is small but nice, but could use some refurbishment. There are a few missing tiles. The grounds and views are truly beautiful and well kept...traditional thai hut structures make up the whole of the resort and while each one is near another, the lay out allows for privacy. The view from the beach, pool, and restaurants offer miles of ocean, a touch of harbour, and a glimpse at an island across the water way. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and well equipped (i.e., flat screen TV, fridge, hairdryer, closet/storage, and even a chaise lounge by the window). The bed was incredibly comfortable, water temperature and pressure was very good, and were far enough away from nearby hotels to be quiet and relaxing. The bathroom is beautiful - with an open air feel, but still private and enclosed. There is some wear and tear, so if you look closely you will some some build up of time and use. If you aren't looking for immaculate modernity or luxury or, you'll be fine. The staff were helpful, but language barriers were an issue at times. Breakfast was okay though the coffee was pretty horrid - amazing morning views though. Dinner in the beach front restaurant was excellent with a great selection of food and drinks. A short walk down the road you will find options for laundry, room and beach snacks, and other meal options (good for lunch as the hotel restaurant was far more expensive). I would stay again and definitely recommend it, if the prices remain reasonable.
