After previous good experiences at Pudsa Bungalows (and Ao Tubtim), we decided to return expecting the usually quietness offered. However, after this last experience, we won't be returning. The bungalows are overpriced (A/C at 1,500-1,700) but because of the good location (far enough from the noise of Silversand but close enough to walk, plus a beautiful beach on your doorstep) that wasn't much of a problem for us. The problem came when boatloads of day trippers were dropped on the beach, the staff at Pudsa directed them towards ALL the chairs and umbrellas, not caring at all that there were no chairs, umbrellas, or beach space for those of us that were paying to stay at the resort. If you are able to look past that and just want to enjoy the peacefulness of the water (which is beautiful), don't expect to enjoy it long before speed boat after speed boat come very fast into the space, stealing any peacefulness left and leaving a horrible waft of diesel fuel. We literally felt "chased away" and went in search of a quieter beach. Which, we did find in the next 2 beaches. That's where we would stay if we ever return.
