Indie Beach is a beautiful, family run beach resort tucked away from the crowds on the laid back Hat Sai Noi beach near Bangbao. If you’ve ever thought about staying in a tropical nordic bohemian resort then this is your chance!
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)
Indie Beach began life when a Norwegian traveller met a local guy, built a home and rented it out on Airbnb. Fast forward a few years and Indie Beach is now a small resort which combines Thai service and charm with Scandinavian minimalist design, cool, calm colours and efficiency.
The small resort consists of a beach house, nine super comfy, elegant bungalows with AC, and a laid back beach café serving fresh, delicious smoothies, Thai food and fusion food all day long. There are also daily yoga classes of offer. The concrete bungalows are all air-conditioned but the large wooden Family house, which is by the sea isn’t. It’s designed to be cooled by the sea breeze and so AC isn’t necessary.
Indie Beach is one of the best small resorts on the island, and especially suited to free spirited, yoga loving, healthy eating folks. You probably won’t enjoy Indie Beach if you plan to party every night. It’s nice spot to de-stress and chill.
Nice houses but rest (food, beach, staff) dissapointing 😀 - Nice houses in green armosphere 😞 - Manager is pushy and staff not really friendly. You cannot swim in front of the hotel because of the rocks
Fantastic and great value for money 😀 - The location and setting, the design, the fantastic staff and the food and drinks 😞 - Beds on the hard side, which is very much true for all of Thailand. The bathroom was partly open to the outside, allowing insects etc to enter the bathroom.
Superb 😀 - Indiebeach is a remote resort where you can enjoy the beachlife. The food is good, a well balanced menu and lot too choose. The staff is very good in their service. Especially Neff was great in helping us with transport arrangements and (day)tours.
Good 😀 - The hotel is good - I will not say that it was a complete delight, I think that the price does not correspond to reality. But in general, not bad - a minimalist design, next to the sea, but you won't be able to swim, because there are a lot of stones. In general, the atmosphere is pleasant and good! But beware of mosquitoes - take repellents! 😞 - Mosquitoes! They fought terribly! Not the first time on the island, but it was very difficult and there were a lot of ants.
Really friendly & helpful staff . Food in restaurant was lovely 😀 - lovely place exactly as description & more Great staff pure chill out Food is lovely
Exceptional 😀 - What a beautiful place. If you are searching for a calm, beautiful stay outside the crowded beaches in the north, you have to be here. Best Food around beautiful rooms and the loveliest staff ever. You will feel like king and queen. We loved this place and will definitely come back.
