Magic Resort is most definitely more of   a ‘Thai style’ beach bungalow resort. It’s the sort of place you stay when you want to park outside your bungalow, plug in the rice cooker and crank up the mobile karaoke machine.

As the majority of guests are Thai the emphasis is on food – the resort has a large restaurant built over the sea and keeping out of the sun, the bungalows are mostly tucked away in shandy gardens.  Most of the rooms are quite old but look fairly well maintained.

But prices are cheap and they also have larger family bungalows.   The type of people who stay here tend not to expect to be waited on hand and food and can organise themselves and don’t rely on hotel staff to book a trip for them.   Kai Bae village is under 10 minutes walk along the road and 10 minutes walk along the beach brings you to much better sandier area.   The beach in front of the resort is good if you plan on doing some crab hunting.

Some newer, brighter more upmarket bungalows have been built at the rear of the resort and they are value for money.   Magic Resort is still more a place to stay if you are visiting with Thai friends or extended family. Or you are Russian and on a budget.

  • Hi Jason

    May well have been Magic Resort. I know it’s been there since the late 80s. If it had a house 9 now restaurant ) built on stilts in the sea, just off the beach, then it will have been Magic Resort. Back then the beach would have been pretty much undeveloped all the way north to the river estuary where there were fisherman’s houses. KP Huts was there, about 1km north of Magic. I know people who stayed there in the late 80s.

  • Hello, I’m wondering if this is where I spent a wonderful few months back in 1990 and again in 1996.
    I stayed at a little bungalow resort by the name of “Magic Bungalows”, is this the same resort?
    The beach looks familiar, from what I can remember.
    My time spent on the island will stay with me forever, it was one of the best times of my life.
    I have been looking around your website and it’s amazing to see how much the island has changed, It’s been nearly 25 years since I was last there after all.

    Great site, I have enjoyed looking around.

  • Hi Trine

    You will have to contact the resort direct. I don’t handle any bungalow bookings myself.
