Klong Prao Resort is located on a great stretch of sand in the centre of Klong Prao beach. The location plus the Villas are the two overriding reasons for staying here.
The resort has a range of rooms, but the cheapest, at around 2,000 baht/night are located way back from the beach are quite old. (For a similar price you could get a room at the new VAYNA Boutique Resort at the south end of Klong Prao beach. )
But once you move up to the villas then you find that the resort does have some very nice accommodation. These all back onto the lagoon and are close to the beach.
One main concern for guests is that the pool is far too small for the number of rooms. And the gym is simply a small room with an exercise bike in it.
If you are willing to forgive these points and also have no plans to fight for sunbeds by the pool, but are happy to head along the beach to find some peace and quiet then it’s definitely worth considering. The beach restaurant was also recently given a makeover and upgraded and refurbished and now makes a very nice spot for a drink and meal at sunset.
One overriding downside is that the resort is popular with tour groups, especially from Eastern Europe / Russia and as such if you’re easily offended by the sight of speedos and bikinis on loud, elderly, vodka swilling fellow guests it’s best avoided.
So not a resort if you want peace and quiet at breakfast or a huge pool to lounge around. But a good, sensibly priced resort for couples and families.
