Cliff Beach Resort, Kai Bae
Cliff Beach Resort is the northernmost resort on Kai Bae beach and occupies a great location, with some stunning views to be had from the clifftop infinity pool.
If you are going to stay here go for the newest rooms, ‘Cliff View’ which are by far the best. Others have better views or are more suited for families but are pretty old and fading quickly. But note the word ‘Cliff’, this indicates that you will be trudging up several flights of steep steps in order to get between your room and the beach. You need to take care if you have been out of a few beers.
And if you want to splash out then the Sea View Villas are well worth considering – spacious, bright & airy and with amazing views.
Nearer the beach are the family rooms which are in a garden area with a natural lotus filled lagoon. A small children’s pool is also here, close to the beach restaurant.
The beach is good and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Only downside is the price, you could do better for the same amount, and despite claims – you couldn’t really call it a 4 star overall. So, Cliff Beach Resort is a good back-up resort if your first choice is full.
