Bailan Beach Resort recently added a new hotel block, which changed the type of guests they receive. In the past it was a small bungalow resort but the new rooms have more than doubled the number of guests overnight. However, it’s still a relatively peaceful spot and one of the most popular resorts in the area.
It has a small sandy beach and large garden area – ideal for relaxing. Bailan is a hamlet with a few shops and small resorts but none of the nightlife associated with the larger, more well known beach areas to the north. ( However, for a night out, Lonely beach is only a 5 minute taxi ride away.)
The bungalows are mainly set in a tropical garden with a handful of beachfront bungalows occupying prime position. By the beach you’ll find hammocks strung between the palms where you can read or relax and listen to the sound of the ocean. Not ideal for swimming though as there are a lot of stones on the seabed.
The new hotel block is at the rear of the property. Rooms are bright and spacious and tastefully furnished. Those on the upper floors have great sunset sea views.
The atmosphere has changed over recent years, due to the number of additional rooms. But it’s still a pleasant, peaceful spot with good value rooms and a laid back seaside location. Just don’t expect a real beach.
