Quiet Beach, Not Quiet Rooms

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 31, 2010
Don’t get this place confused with the Sang Thian Beach Resort a few doors down. We did, and ended up spending one night in a place we hadn’t already paid for. Yikes. Although both places are fairly equal, each with its own benefits. Ban Thai is a small hotel built in the traditional style. It’s located in the middle of the beach with restaurants in both directions. The beds were nice and comfy, which is a big deal in Asia, as most beds are rock hard. The owner is very nice and friendly, and her English is quite decent. The beach in front of the hotel is hard to describe. It’s hemmed in on both sides by cement decks from the neighboring hotels, and additionally hemmed in by some naturally occurring rocks, but it is a white sand beach. It is fairly quiet, even though we were supposedly there during high season. We really loved the shady trees covering most of the beach, where we able to place a couple of chairs and a table, read our books, watch the birds and the ocean and take occasional dips in the water. We were at Ban Thai for 5 nights and our room never got cleaned or straightened. Our only other complaint is with the noise. We really need to stay away from “Traditional Thai Architecture.” Although lovely, it means the rooms have absolutely no sound-proofing from the neighbors. This means you here all there conversations and whatever tv show or music they decide to listen to. But, we are sensitive to sound, so this might not bother others. But we really enjoyed ourselves on the beach, we may have never had such a relaxing vacation in our lives.
