Paradise Bungalows, Kai Bae
Paradise Bungalows Kai Bae, is another of the roadside resorts in Kai Bae village. It is located near the south end of the village and is built on a slope. This gives the bungalows at the rear some good views over the village. Noise isn’t really an issue as although there are shops on the road nearby, there aren’t any loud bars in the vicinity. The beach is under 5 minutes walk away.
There are a range of Fan and AC bungalows but given the difference in price is only a couple of hundred Baht / night, it’s worth going for the AC bungalows, for around 1,000 Baht / night in High Season, which also have the best views.
You should note that breakfast isn’t provided. But that’s not really an issue as it’s possible to find small restaurants serving breakfast close by. And, to be honest, anyone who’s had a ‘free’ breakfast of soggy toast, a sad sausage and limp egg at a budget hotel before probably wishes they hadn’t bothered. Book a cheap room with no breakfast and then try different places when you are here.
A good choice if you’re on a tight budget. There are better run places nearby but they’ll cost you a lot more. If you can look after yourself and just want an AC room in a good location then it’s worth considering.
