Sea View Resort and Spa, Kai Bae beach

Sea View is one of the most popular 4 star resorts for families looking to stay in a peaceful beachfront setting.

It is located at the far southern end of Kai Bae beach, so be prepared to have a 20 minute walk if you want to get into Kai Bae village for shopping.   But there are a couple of other resorts nearby if you don’t fancy hotel food.  The best food being adjacent at the laid back ‘Porn’s Bungalows’ which serves up some of the best Thai food in the area.

The older hillsidecottages have now been replaced by new hotel rooms, all of which have panoramic ocean views.  The Deluxe and Superior rooms feature floor to ceiling windows and a glass walled bathroom, so you need never miss a sunset even whilst taking a shower.

There are a couple of swimming pools.  The beachfront pool is the most popular.  It’s a bit small given the size of the resort but there are plenty of sunloungers and refreshingly the hotel has a policy that doesn’t allow people to reserve sunbeds with their towels for hours.   One hour and if the sunbed isn’t used the towel is removed.

So igf you prefer a quiet swim, away from the cowds head to the Clifftop pool.  You can walk up the hill or take the funicular train ( the only one on the island ) From this pool you look down onto the beach and islands below. 

The beach directly in front of the resort is the best in this area and at very low tide, in the Low Season, you can walk to the island 400 metres offshore.

Recommended choice if you prefer to be slightly away from the main tourist areas.  The resort has a free shuttle service to the village as walking there along the main road is quite difficult.  Not due to the distance – due to the steep hills.

  • The reviews in TripAdvisor claim the staff in this place is very rude and service bad. One said the change for worse has happened lately. Any ideas why? (There were a lot of these comments so I am inclined to believe them…)
