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.
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)
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.
Very good 😀 - The resort was very nice a lovely staff. The seaside bungalow was nice but needed a little maintenance. Breakfast was basic but good no complaints. 😞 - The location was a long way from white sands and very at night to ride back. The location is quite which was good and the staff arranged a taxi to take us to whites one evening. If you were staying longer than a few days would need to think about location.
This is beautiful with serene sunset view. Staffs are helpful and polite. Room was spacious & clean. 😀 - The beachfront is lovely, many swings, tree house, mangroves. Behavior of staffs very nice, humble and ready to help always. 😞 - Breakfast was good and tasty but should have more variety like soup or noodles etc. Overall it was a great experience!
Very good 😀 - Was a great 2 night away with family.
Very good 😀 - Nice location, cozy bungalow, kind and helpful staff. 😞 - You can clearly hear the music from Lonely Beach all through the night, bring ear plugs. Bathroom in need of repairs / upgrade.
Superb 😀 - Lovely place, garden well maintained, staff is very nice. 😞 - Some of the AC units are very old and noisy
