Ban Saikao Plaza Hotel & Serviced Apartment is one of the best budget hotels on White Sand beach. Located a stone’s throw from the beach, they offer a very good standard of accommodation for a very reasonable price.
Baan Saikhao Plaza is a nondescript building on the inland side of the main road in the centre of White Sand beach. On the ground floor is a 7-eleven and a very good Indian restaurant. adjacent to the restaurant is the entrance to the hotel.
Rooms are on three floors but note that there isn’t an elevator. The hotel is much larger than it appears from the roadside. As rooms are built around a central atrium. There are two types of room, Superior and Deluxe.
The main difference being the Deluxe rooms are 36Sqm and Superior 28sqm. Both are available with a double or twin bed. (If you require an extra bed, Baan Saikhao Plaza charge a very reasonable 300 Baht/night for this. This is much less than most hotels.)
The rooms themselves are very tastefully designed and feature a glass walled bathroom. Beds are a bit firmer than most guests would like. But, this is a budget hotel, so you can’t expect everything to be a 4 star standard.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and, despite being located roadside in a busy area, also quiet. Many guests expect noise in the room due to the location and so are pleasantly surprised when they can get a good night’s sleep.
Breakfast isn’t included and the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant. But there are a multitude of places to eat nearby, either on the beach or roadside.
Two main downsides. No views. No swimming pool. However, if you can live without that, the the rooms themselves are better (and larger) than at many resorts which cost double the price.
The location won’t be to everyone’s liking. But if you’re here to sunbathe, eat, drink and socialise then it’s a very convenient place to base yourself in the heart of White Sand beach.
