KB Resort is overall, one of the nicest beachfront bungalow resorts on the island. As the resort has expanded over the years the owners though and so the atmosphere has changed. The owners have resisted the temptation to cram in more bungalows. But a hotel block was added and the restaurant and beach bar have been totally renovated during the past few years.
The bungalows, whilst certainly not luxurious are a good 3 star standard and are clean and well maintained. Fan, AC, beachfront and family bungalows are available. They are set in a lush garden area with mature trees providing plenty of shade. The beachfront restaurant is also one of the best in the area with well priced Thai dishes and BBQ seafood. And the adjacent beach bar, complete with hanging swing chairs, is a very pleasant spot for a sunset cocktail.
The swimming pool was built when this was still a small scale bungalow resort. Nowadays, with the addition of the large hotel block that houses the Superior rooms, it can get packed during High Season. the spacious family bungalows are adjacent to the pool area and so can get noisy.
Roadside shops and restaurants are only a minute’s walk away. So, if you are looking for a good, but not luxurious, beachfront bungalow, you can’t really go wrong here. No qualms in recommending it. Compare this with the neighbouring Kai Bae Beach Resort and see which you prefer.
