Penny’s Bungalows is a compact, 28 room resort by the sea on Pearl Beach. It is a clean, comfortable 2 star and the rooms, which are built around a seafront swimming pool, all come complete with cable TV, wifi, hot water and aircon.
So you are by the sea, with airconditioning and at an affordable price. which probably explains its popularity with families. The downsides are that ‘Pearl Beach‘ has no sand – only stones, so it isn’t easy to swim in the sea but if you do then you will disover a nice little coral reef close to the shore. Ideal for snorkelling on calm days.
The resort is about 400 metres from the main road, accessible by a paved access road, so catching a pick up truck taxi to other beaches is easy enough. It just requires a 5 minute walk.
So if you just need a centrally located spot to base yourself and don’t want to pay over the odds for a room or unnecessary luxuries, then it’s a good choice. Just don’t expect great service or the most modern rooms. They’re functional rather than designer chic.
High Season 2017 – 18 room rates are from 1,200 – 1,400 Baht / night for the Standard and Superior bungalows.
