When we showed up at this small resort on the Gulf of Thailand, they were not expecting us and they didn't speak any English, but, not to worry, they got the owner on the phone and cleared up the misunderstanding and rushed to prepare our rooms. It was mid week and we had the entire resort to ourselves. It was a bit outside of town and we quickly realized that it would be best if we could eat dinner and breakfast at the resort. We let them chose the menu, just asking for fresh seafood. They prepared the most delicious multi course meals for our party of 6! The resort itself is small but the concrete construction is built with a flare for design. The bright red tile pool in the center of the complex is mirrored in the red tile shower column in the bathrooms. The rooms were very comfortable and had driftwood design inserts in the ceilings and in the bathrooms. The beach is beautiful and we could hear the waves as we slept. This resort was a gem and we truly enjoyed our time there. The family who does the care taking and cooking (Husband, Wife and kids) were anxious to please and very helpful despite the language barrier. They all gathered to bow to us in farewell as we left.
Pros: The beach, the design and layout of the hotel and the staff. The food was fantastic, each meal was better than the one before.
Location: Great beaches, near the Imperial Palace, Khao Luang Cave, National Parks, Cha-am and many more attractions.
